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!
navel orange slices
figs and more!
Try almond butter, sunflower butter, cashew butter – or good old fashioned peanut butter. Chunky or creamy.
