Chunky Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Sometimes, the most unlikely of ingredients, when paired together, make a delicious combination. The sweetness of creamy banana, combined with crunchy, nutty peanut butter will satisfy your cravings for a sweet, decadent treat without the excess fat and calories of traditional snacks and desserts. And we’ve taken this scrumptious flavor combo one step further with our Chunky Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich, a healthy sandwich that tastes like a treat!

Start off with two slices of whole grain bread. When you’re at the supermarket, feel free to be choosy about the bread you buy. The first ingredient in the bread you buy should be whole grains, and ingredients like flax seeds, sunflower seeds, dates, raisins, oats, barley, or millet are great additions to a healthy, fiber- and nutrient- rich slice of bread. And if you can find an organic brand of chunky peanut butter, with no unnecessary additives, grab it!

Bananas are high in potassium and fiber, and peanut butter is a great way of getting a dose of fiber along with a great vegetarian source of protein. Put these two ingredients together between two slices of whole grain bread, and you’ve got fruit, complex carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fat-all ingredients that ensure that your lunch is healthy and will sustain you for hours. And the best part? This sandwich is inexpensive to make and easy to prepare, making it a great weekday lunch.

    Anything with peanut butter in it is a treat. Especially when combined with something sweet. And is also why peanut butter is my favorite sandwich filling. Combine the above recipe here with your Clean-Eating Nut Butter and Jam Sandwich recipe, and you have both my favorite use for peanut butter and my go-to for whenever I want a sandwich that’s delicious, nutritious and filling, all in one meal. Mmm, so good.
