"Thank You Very Much" Pumpkin Peanut Butter Sandwich

Thank You Very Much Pumpkin Peanut Butter SandwichInspired by Elvis Presley's passion for peanut butter and banana sandwiches, this unique peanut butter sandwich is great for a quick anytime treat. In this version, pumpkin and peanut butter, two nutrition powerhouses, blend easily to create a spread without all the fat and calories of plain peanut butter. Simply spread the light and creamy pumpkin-peanut butter over whole wheat bread and cover with banana slices. Even your family will say "thank you very much"!

1/2 cup LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
1/2 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter (preferably natural-style)

1 medium banana, cut into 1/4-inch slices

Cooking Directions:

  1. Combine pumpkin and peanut butter in small bowl until well blended. Makes 1 cup.
  2. Spread 1 tablespoon pumpkin peanut butter spread on each slice. Top two slices with banana slices. Top each with second slice of bread to make sandwiches.
  3. Refrigerate leftover pumpkin peanut butter spread in tightly covered container for up to 5 days.
