Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray. Whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl; set aside.
Whisk eggs in medium bowl. Stir in mashed bananas, oil, orange zest and juice, and vanilla. Gradually stir in flour mixture until just combined. Fold in sunflower kernels.
Spread batter in prepared pan. Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack for 1 minute. Remove bread from pan; cool completely on wire rack.
Cut bread into 16 (½-inch-thick) slices. Spread fruit spread evenly on 8 slices of bread. Spread peanut butter on remaining bread slices and place on top over fruit spread, peanut butter sides down, to form sandwiches.
To store, wrap each sandwich separately in plastic wrap. Store in a covered freezer container or resealable freezer bag up to 2 weeks. Thaw before serving.
