- ½ teaspoon of salt
Substitutions And Additions
EGGS: Substitute eggs using a quarter cup (approximately 65 grams) of applesauce or a quarter cup of pureed bananas.
Be cautious, as substituting with these ingredients will change the end flavor slightly.
CHOCOLATE CHIPS: Add chocolate chips in with the batter. Add as many or as few as you prefer, and even try different flavors of chips, such as butterscotch or peanut butter chips.
NUTS: You can add peanuts to give this recipe a bit of crunch. Crush them and mix them into the batter or sprinkle a few on top.
MILK: You can substitute almond milk or other nut or soy milk varieties in this simple recipe, but the substituted milk may be a bit thinner, so add it slowly.
You may want to add a little less than one cup.
OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS
This recipe calls for room-temperature eggs. If you forgot to let yours sit out beforehand, run a bowl of warm (not hot) water and place your eggs in the shells inside the bowl for about 5 minutes.
How To Make Peanut Butter Bread
Our easy, step-by-step instructions will walk you through making the bread batter and baking it to perfection.
STEP ONE: Move the oven rack to the center of your oven. Preheat oven to 350°F.
STEP TWO: Prepare an 8×4-inch loaf pan by spraying the pan lightly with nonstick spray and then placing a piece of parchment paper into the pan.
If you want the peanut butter to slide out of the measuring cup easily, give the measuring cup a light coating of non-stick spray first.
STEP THREE: Pour the milk, sugar, peanut butter, and eggs into a heavy-duty blender or food processor.
Process for one to two minutes until a smooth batter forms. Adjust the time based on the strength of your appliance.
If you plan to use the same measuring cup for the milk and peanut butter, start with the milk, then add the peanut butter next, so it’s easier to measure your milk.
STEP FOUR: Next, add the flour, oats, baking powder, and salt to the wet ingredients. Process until smooth, about one minute.
If your appliance is lower wattage, add the dry ingredients gradually.
STEP FIVE: When your batter is smooth, pour the peanut butter mixture into the prepared loaf pan.
STEP SIX: Place in the oven and bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean or with just a few crumbs on it.
Set a timer for 50 minutes. At that time, check the bread to make sure the top is not getting too brown. If it is, you can cover it loosely with aluminum foil. Then continue baking.
STEP SEVEN: Remove from the oven and let it rest in the pan for ten minutes on a cooling rack before removing.
STEP EIGHT: Allow the loaf to completely cool before slicing. Serve and enjoy!
