Peanut Butter Sandwich Bread

When it comes to a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, there is little to improve upon. But I just made this loaf of peanut butter bread and I’m thinking YES! Yes to making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with peanut butter bread. I sense an epic lunch in my belly today. I should just throw some peanut butter cookies in there too. Because there is no such thing as too much peanut butter!

Seriously though, I cannot believe that Jenna from Eat, Live, Run is allowing us to use this as sandwich bread. Especially since it’s a bit more dense than the typical sandwich bread. I’m not going dwell on that though because it is much to glorious to deny.

I was actually surprised at first when I saw crunchy instead of creamy peanut butter in the ingredient list, but after slicing into the bread I love the little flecks of peanuts! And the visibility of nuts triggers my brain to compute that what I’m about to eat as at least semi-healthy. Denial – it’s one of my strengths.

If you need more reason to bake this, it’s a quick bread and you probably have all the ingredients right now! (A perfect fit for my cut-back-on-grocery-bills goal.)

Ingredients:

3/4 cup chunky peanut butter

1/2 cup sugar

1-1/2 cups milk

2 cups flour

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp salt

1 Tbsp baking powder

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a loaf pan well.
  2. Cream together the peanut butter and sugar until well combined. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. With the mixer running on low, slowly alternate between adding the milk and the dry ingredients. Mix until smooth.
  4. Pour batter into greased loaf pan and bake for one hour. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes before turning out on a wire rack and cooling completely.
