Pineapple Peanut Butter Sandwiches

Here is another of my sandwiches that can be made ahead and frozen to put into the lunch bag/box. I really love these time saving recipes. And the bonus of saving me time on busy mornings really is just what I need so often.

This sandwich is for your peanut butter lover. As a mom I love that it is sweet without all the sugar from jelly or jam or honey. By mixing in the crushed pineapple and some shredded carrot you are giving a little boost to the nutrients in the sandwiches and if you have kids that don't like veggies this is a great way to sneak some in on them.

Pineapple Peanut Butter Sandwiches

2/3 cup crunchy style peanut butter
1 (8 oz) can crushed pineapple in juice, well drained
1 medium carrot, shredded (about ¼ cup)
2 oz cream cheese, softened

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and combine with an electric mixer.

Sandwiches made from this can be frozen for up to 1 month.
Place frozen sandwich in lunch bag and it should thaw in about 4 to 6 hours at room temperature.

Makes 4 sandwiches
