Just made this from the Chocolate Covered Katie website. I used Sunbutter instead of PB and xylitol as my sweetener. I added some dark chocolate chips. It's cooling now. Will let you know how it tastes as soon as I can cut it!
I rearranged ingredients so that they're more in order (dry ingredients first, then wet).
Peanut Butter Sandwich Bread
(Yields 1 regular-sized loaf)
Add two tsp of xanthum gum for gluten-free version!
2 cups spelt flour or white ww flour (or white, or gf all-purpose)
sweetener (see recipe directions below, for amount)
1/8 tsp uncut stevia extract (or 1/4 cup more sugar, or 4 stevia packets)
1 tbsp plus 1/2 tsp baking powder
scant 1 tsp salt (I used salted pb as well)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup peanut butter (or nut butter of choice)
2 tbsp applesauce (or 2 tbsp more pb, or mashed banana)
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups milk of choice
optional: chocolate chips, chopped peanuts
You can use any of the following as your sweetener: brown sugar, xylitol, coconut sugar, regular sugar, or evaporated cane juice. If you want a sandwich bread, use 1/3 cup. If you prefer a sweeter peanut butter bread, increase sweetener to 2/3 cup.
Preheat oven to 375 F. Mix the dry ingredients very well. Then mix in wet. (If your pb isn’t super-creamy, microwave it 40 seconds, or until soft.) Pour into a sprayed loaf pan and bake 40-45 minutes. Let cool at least 15 minutes before slicing.
