Sunflower Seed Butter and Strawberry Wafflewich

My girls love strawberries, sunflower seed butter and waffles but aren’t fans of the traditional sandwich so I thought it would be fun to make a wafflewich (or waffle sandwich) for their lunchboxes. Because their school is peanut and tree nut free, I use sunflower seed butter (approved by schools and not an allergen) in place of traditional peanut or almond butter.

Lunchbox Friendly

Two waffles along with other foods (like grapes and a hard cooked egg in the lunchbox above) for the girls seems like alot of food for lunch so I split a sandwich between the two of them. To keep the waffles from getting soggy in their lunchbox, I make them the morning of and then let them cool before packing. If you want to see the meal plan for this lunchbox, check out my post, Week 3 Healthy Lunchbox Meal Plan.

Frances was a big fan of the Wafflewich! She took it off my photo set and started eating it. Winston approved too (he ate all the pieces that fell and then tried to lick Frances)!

Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think! And the best part is that from here, you can create all types of waffle sandwiches! Enjoy!
