An Amazing and Healthy Idea for Lunch for Kids
Today I’m at Fitbloggin and the amazing breakfasts and lunches we have are inspiring! I have so many recipes to share, I can’t wait! HOWEVER, it is still Honey Month and I’ve got a yummy sandwich that is so different and so yummy, that I packed for the kids last week. And also remember that honey berry waffle I posted last week? I could TOTALLY picture it having a cream cheese filling a little bit like the filling in this sandwich, and one day I shall try it and report back.
This sandwich is made up of a million different flavors but when they get together, it’s like a big party in a sandwich. I let my kids try a little bit of it before I surprised them with it in their lunches but they were excited to chow on it when I packed it. It’s really filling too and they got all addicted to sunflower seeds in the process.
Here you go! (Feel free to pin it to share it!)
A LA Honey Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Apple Sandwich!
- 8 oz. cream cheese (I used the lower fat neufachatel cheese), softened
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 8 slices whole wheat bread (I use Nature’s Own with no preservatives)
- 1 green or red apple, thinly sliced
- 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
- 1 cup all-natural peanut butter
Using a mixer, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add honey, vanilla extract and cinnamon and continue to mix. Spread 1 to 2 tablespoons of the honey cream cheese mixture on 4 slices of bread. Top with apple slices and sprinkle sunflower seeds on top.
Spread 2 tablespoons peanut butter on the remaining 4 slices of bread. Place peanut butter slices face down on top of cream cheese and apple covered slices.
Cut sandwiches into halves or quarters and serve!
This cream cheese mixture was so good I wanted to eat it by the spoonful. It is DEFINITELY a great cream cheese filling for something… like WAFFLES! The cinnamon-y cream cheese with the peanut butter and the crunchy of the apple, it was delicious! It was a meal.
