Once upon a time I came across a recipe and thought, “Really? Could it be?” So I blended together peanut butter, honey, eggs, baking soda, and vinegar and made actual bread. It looked like bread and tasted like bread and I was amazed that indeed, it was bread. I was very, very happy. The end.
So what if I already took a bite out of this piece before I took the picture.
Can you blame me?
Be very, very shocked and amazed with me. We can make actual bread that has no grain, no gluten, and no dairy. The bread tastes delicious and had a wonderful texture! It’s as simple as this Whole Wheat Stir-and-Pour Bread because just like that recipe, we simply stir together the ingredients and pour them into a baking pan. It’s ridiculously easy.
Plus, we add vinegar and baking soda to the mixture, so we get to make a volcano. Who says baking isn’t fun?
I originally saw a recipe like this here. I was skeptical because, well, I’ve made a few grain-free recipes with strange ingredients like this, and while everything would look delicious, it seemed to always taste like a soggy banana. (I’m looking at you so called “Amazing Grain Free, Sugar Free Brownies.”)
I decided to take a chance on this bread recipe though, because of this: I wanted to spread butter on something I could eat. (Regular bread isn’t cooperating with me right now.) I also loved the idea of this bread being chuck full of protein. Peanut butter and eggs? Maybe, just maybe, I could fill the hollow places in my sons’ legs.
Worried that the taste of peanut butter will overpower the bread? It has a surprisingly mild flavor. In fact, we were all wishing it tasted more peanut-buttery. Either way, just imagine how good this is with butter, jelly, or honey. I prefer it toasted with lots of butter. This probably doesn’t surprise you.
The Most Amazing Peanut Butter Bread
- 2 cups natural, unsalted peanut butter
- 2 teaspoons honey
- Pinch of sea salt (omit if your peanut butter is salted)
- 6 eggs
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 Tablespoons white vinegar
- Mix all ingredients together in a blender or with a hand mixer.
- Pour into a well-greased 9x5" loaf pan.
- Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the bread comes out clean.
- Allow the bread to sit in the pan for about 10 minutes to cool.
- Remove bread from pan and cool on a rack.
Here’s my homemade peanut butter recipe.
After seeing the ingredient list, you might be thinking, “Isn’t this bread kind of expensive?” Sure. It costs more than wheat flour bread. But I think it’s actually saving me money because on mornings I serve it for breakfast, my sons don’t ask for meat. They are full after two slices. Did we ever think we’d see the day?
No matter your diet restrictions or lack thereof, I’d love to convince you to make this Peanut Butter Bread. What do you have to lose? Five minutes?
Ever tried a recipe with weird ingredients that turned out…weird? Do share. I promise this one will pleasantly surprise you!
