Peanut Butter Bread Recipe

A super easy Peanut Butter Bread recipe, perfect for breakfast or as snack made with a blender.

easy peanut butter bread recipe

The blender in our home gets quite a workout. On a regular basis it spins away creating smoothies, sauces or salsa, but last week I used it to blend together a batter for Peanut Butter Bread. Yes, bread. Peanut Butter Bread. Oh my word.

It was a recipe I found in the new blender cookbook. I just had to give it a try. The recipe basically jumped off the page and said “You’ve gotta give me a try. Like now.” So I did. But cake or bread batter in a blender? Could it be as easy as a few whirls, with simple cleanup of one container?

Yep. It was.

The Peanut Butter Bread recipe turned out mighty fine. It’s the perfect breakfast bread, toasted a bit and topped with some jelly perhaps? You should definitely give it a whirl soon. I know the smoothies will have to share the blender time now that I’ve discovered the ease of preparing batters with a blender.

We’ve been spoiled with owning a fantastic Blendtec blender for about 3 years now. As I have mentioned before, our blender has been a workhorse in our kitchen. It would be sad to not have one to whip up smoothies, salsas, dips and soup bases, not to mention milkshakes. Milkshakes!!! I need a milkshake.

      Hello C,

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it. It’s the perfect amount of sweetness for breakfast (and to still be able to add some jelly without it getting too sweet).

        I will try tomorrow with a little cinnamon & honey. I posted to my Pinterest for safekeeping 😉 I will be making again.

      It’s got a crust like bread but it’s soft like cake inside. Not too sweet like a dessert would be but a good breakfast bread. Holds up to being cut with a knife.

    Mine just came out of the oven! It rose high and is gorgeous! The house smells wonderful! The bread is moist and tastes great with butter, jelly, AND Nutella! I have to say though, I’m jealous of your blender! I did everything as you said but as soon as I started to add the flour, it got too thick and stopped blending. I had to finish by hand. If I had it to do again, I’d mix all but the flour and pour into a bowl to finish mixing with the flour. I also cooked mine for a solid hour to get the center done Thank you! :)

      That sort of answers my question. Was wondering if this could be mixed without a blender. I have a quisinart and it doesn’t have a “batters” button, just high low and pulse. Thanks

    Am I missing something? I do not see peanut butter listed as an ingredient in the recipe?

      I have not made this with almond milk yet, so I could not say how it would turn out exactly. If you have substituted almond milk in baking with good results it would seem to me that you could do it for this recipe too.

    This recipe looks yumee !! But, as I do not have a blender, can I do without ? Thanx !

    I was going to ask the same thing about not having a blender. I have a food processor that I’ve never used so I’m not familiar. Can you suggest how I would use it for this recipe? It sounds so amazing, I can’t wait to make it! Thx!

    I made this bread on Saturday, and it turned out great! I didn’t have a blender, so I used my kitchenaid mixer. I let it mix until I got a consistency that looked like the picture. This is my first try at peanut butter bread. I’ll definitely be using this recipe from now on. I might try crunchy peanut butter next time though. My wife took some to work, and all of her fellow elementary teachers want me to cook them some!! Thanks for the recipe!

    I do not have a blender with food processor work in place of a blender.
    Thank you

      I’ve never made it with a food processor. You would need to be careful to not over mix the batter. You can also use an electric mixer.

    Laura says

    I made it with a kitchen aid mixer with the whisk attachment, baked it 50 min, it came out looking great but crumbled real bad when cut, did hold together well. I think I’d even use more peanut butter next time. Maybe if I had let it cool longer than 15 min it would’ve cut better. Anyone else have it crumble on them?

    Hello – I use only natural peanut butter, so the consistency is quite different than that of say, Jiff. What kind of peanut butter do you use? Do you think a natural version would work? Thanks!

    • 32


      I’ve not used a natural peanut butter in this recipe yet. I imagine it would change the texture just a bit, but it should work.

    I am using this recipie for my year 9 bread project but I don’t think you mentioned what type of peanut butter you used

    Kiersten says

    I’m curious if you’ve ever used PB2 as a substitute for the peanut butter? It could be a healthier version, but I don’t know what else you’d have to add (if anything) for it to turn out properly. My loaf is currently in the oven and I can’t wait to try it!

    Anisha says

    I’m always looking for quick homemade breakfasts. This looks great but I wanted to know how long before it goes bad? Do you think slicing and freezing it would work? Then I could just pop a slice into the microwave every morning. Thanks for the recipe!

      It should work, Anisha. I’ve never frozen it before, but it is a sturdy bread so I think it would work. Otherwise, I think it is best to eat within 2-3 days.

    I made this for my family yesterday. When I pulled it from the oven at 50 minutes my toothpick came out clean but when I cut into it hours later the center was raw. I have since cooked it an extra 30 minutes and it’s still raw in the center. I have no idea what is going wrong here. The end piece I tried tasted great though.

    Don’t use a blender unless it is very powerful. I just tried one even with an ice crusher mode—Nope.

    Katie T. says

    I just made this and it turned out so yummy! I don’t own a powerful blender so I just mixed everything accordingly in my kitchen aid with the normal paddle attachment until the consistency matched the photo. Mine was done perfectly at 45 min. I used natural PB and I love that this bread has just the right amount of sweetness so it will make a great breakfast bread!
