Today we’re turning a baked treat into this dreamy blueberry bread sandwich! It’s a delicious snack idea that’s bursting with berry flavor, and it is so easy to make.
Below I’ll show you how to pack it up with mixed fruit so the sandwich stays fresh and your kids can enjoy a balanced snack idea.
Blueberry & Cream Sandwich
Instead of eating blueberry bread by the slice, why not turn it into a delicious sandwich? Just add some whipped cream cheese in between two slices, and voila!
This kind of snack is always a HIT and it’s a fun switch from the usual crackers and cheese. When it comes to filling out the rest of the box, you could add fresh berries for fiber, or choose a protein like Greek yogurt or a hard-boiled egg.
What is a Blueberry Sandwich
Homemade blueberry bread is the key to this sandwich, and it’s a favorite recipe because the bread is super tender and full of fresh berry flavor. The whipped cream cheese makes a light filling and helps hold this sandwich together.
You could certainly recreate this idea with banana bread, pumpkin bread, or your favorite recipe and swap the whipped cream cheese for peanut butter or Nutella.
Banana bread + peanut butter, what an incredible combination that would be!

How to Pack a Blueberry Bread Sandwich for a Snack
Let me show you how to quickly make and pack this blueberry bread sandwich for a snackbox:
Cut 1 slice of blueberry bread in half. Spread the whipped cream cheese over 1 half and assemble the sandwich.
- Wrap it up
Since blueberry bread is more tender than regular bread, wrapping this sandwich with plastic wrap will help it stay intact until snacktime.
- Pack it right
To keep the sandwich from getting smashed and soaking up excess moisture, place it in a compartmentalized container and add the fruit or additional snacks into separate compartments.
