The Healthy Elvis?!?!

Sometimes I get a hankering for an Elvis Sandwich, but don’t have a hankering for a heart attack.  Here’s how I try to accomplish the former without the latter.


  • 12 grams PB2
  • organic jerky of some kind that is low in fat and high in protein
  • half a banana
  • 1/4th cup egg beaters or egg white
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon sugar
  • 8 or 10 in. whole wheat high fiber tortilla

Kitchen Implements

  • Frying Pan
  • Food processor or coffee Grinder
  • George Foreman or Panini Press (optional)

How to Make it:

  1. take your half banana and dice it up into small cubes like those shown in the picture below.
  2. Put the jerky in a grinding implement and process till its dust.  mix 12 grams of PB2 with 2 tbsp of Jerky dust and add water one tbsp at a time.  The beauty/trick with this is that you can make your meanut butter as thick or soupy as you want.
  3. Mix one tbsp of cinnamon sugar with your eggbeater or egg white and beat it like it owes you money or till it is one homogeneous mixture
  4. Put cinnamon sugar egg mixture (bastard tamago) into a frying pan with the chopped bananas and scramble to desired doneness.
  5. Put scrambled tamago/ banana mixture into tortilla and top with meanut butter that you made earlier.  IMPORTANT:  in order to taste all of the flavors you should put the meanut butter directly over the scrambled tamago so you taste it first.  It will be joined/slightly overpowered by the sweetness of the bananas which will taste like maduros.
  6. (Optional)Fold wrap and place in George foreman to seal it/get desired grill marks.  IMPORTANT:  Be careful not to press down hard or forget to use Pam on the grill.  Failure to heed these warnings will result in a messy Elvis 😦
  7. You can either eat it hot or let it cool.  I usually let it cool because I like it better that way.  Sometimes I have been known to freeze it, cut it up and eat it that way.  You probably wont like it frozen.  I’m really weird.


Meanut Butter= 70 cals

Banana = 50 cals

Cinnamon Tamago = 45 cals

Tortilla = 60 cals

Total = 225 cals
