Peanut Butter Sandwich Bread

by Erin

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.)


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


  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.

Mmm, mm. You said it, there is no such thing as too much peanut butter! I saw this on Eat, Live, Run too. Too good to miss!

Haha nothing wrong with that, thanks!

Peanut butter bread? This sounds even better than banana bread! I say just throw some choc. chips in there and call it good all by itself!

You can’t go wrong with more peanut butter in your pb&j sandwich! I love all things peanut butter, definitely need to add this one to the to-do list.

spiffycookie July 25, 2011 - 2:15 pm

It sooo wonderful!

Amy @ Elephant Eats July 25, 2011 - 10:29 am

Mmm, this sounds so good! What a yummy base for a pb&j or pb&banana sandwich!!

What a great idea! Love this bread! Turn into muffins as well, maybe with a few chocolate chips in there. YUM!!!

spiffycookie July 25, 2011 - 10:22 am

Definitely! Especially since it’s a bit dense for a sandwich bread

Lisa @ Sunny Seed Stories July 25, 2011 - 9:37 am

Mmm. I wonder if it would even be possible to make this more delicious by adding a cinnamon swirl to it? I might have to try it!

spiffycookie July 25, 2011 - 9:38 am

Interesting idea! Let me know if you make it!

Lisa @ Sunny Seed Stories July 25, 2011 - 10:20 am
