This Fruit Stack Peanut Butter Sandwich is a fun idea for any kids or adults who simply love sandwiches. Instead of serving peanut butter toast with a side of fresh fruit – I’ve combined them! Thinly sliced apples and bananas are stuffed between two slices of toasted sandwich bread – slathered in chunky peanut butter. A drizzle of maple syrup and cinnamon hides beneath these tasty layers as well! Perfect as a healthy breakfast, lunchbox sandwich or after-school snack. I served mine with some ice cold chocolate almond milk! Get my recipe and a few inspiring ideas for what you can “stack” in your sandwich.

Stuffer Fruit. Try these fruits – slice them paper thin – or for soft fruits like raspberries – simply smash them between the bread and call them “fruit smasher” sandwiches!

Apples
Bananas
Berries
Pears
Peaches
Apricots
navel orange slices
mandarin oranges
grapes
mango
figs and more!

Try almond butter, sunflower butter, cashew butter – or good old fashioned peanut butter. Chunky or creamy.

Fruit Stack Peanut Butter Sandwich
makes 1 sandwich

2 slices sandwich bread
1 banana, thinly sliced long ways
1 small green apple, sliced paper-thin
3 Tbsp chunky peanut butter
1 tsp maple syrup
a few dashes of cinnamon

To Make:

Toast the bread.
Slice the fruit paper thin – if you are not eating this sandwich right away you can toss the fruit in a splash of lemon juice to keep them from browning.
Slather peanut butter on both slices of bread.
Layer fruit.
Add a drizzle of maple and dashes of cinnamon.
Close sandwich and slice!
