Peanut Butter Bread Recipe Tips:

  • PAN SIZE: I use a standard loaf pan (1 lb. Pan: 8″ x 4 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ high)
  • PREPARE THE PAN: Make sure to line your loaf pan with parchment paper or spray it with a baking oil spray.
  • LET IT REST: Allow the loaf to rest for at least 1 hour before eating it.
  • STORAGE: Keep in an airtight container or wrap in plastic wrap so that this loaf doesn’t dry out. There’s no need to put it in the fridge, it’s fine at room temperature for up to 3 days.
  • FREEZING: This loaf freezes well. Store in an airtight container or ziplock bag in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • OPTIONS: Feel free to add 1/2 cup chocolate chips to the batter!

  1. Hi Jo
    Found you through my friend Sandy.
    I never cook, so humor me here. I saw this bread and couldn’t resist trying. In 25 yrs. I’ve never run out of peanut butter. Today was the day. I had 1/2 cup left, so I made up the other 1/2 with Nutella. It’s baking now. I’ll let you know how it turns out : )
    Love from Canada

  2. Oh My Goodness! I saw this on Made by Monday and just HAD to try it. So, I made a double batch (we LOVE peanut butter). It turned out SO VERY Delicious! Melt in our mouth good! Thank you!!!!!

  3. I didn’t have creamy peanut butter so I used crunchy. I can’t wait to try it!! It is in the oven cooking now!

    1. That’s a good question – I wondered it myself, and ended up buying the regular stuff because I was concerned about the consistency difference between the two – the separation that happens with natural peanut butter kind of worried me a bit. If you’ve got natural peanut butter, maybe it’s worth a try? If you try this, let me know how it turned out!

    2. I finally made it this week with the natural peanut butter… I even added a little splash of vegetable oil in with the butter, but it still came out a bit too dry and crumbly. Definitely regular peanut butter next time!

  4. Hi there… I saw this on Pinterest a couple of weeks ago and made it today. It was pretty good. I like that it wasn’t too sweet. It was perfect for me. I don’t have a sweet tooth at all, but this had just the right amount of sweetness for this “non-sweet tooth” kind of gal. My kiddies liked it too, so it’s a winner in my book. I’ll be posting about it on my blog! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!

  5. I made some earlier and just had a still warm slice with raspberry jam – SO GOOD! My boyfriend loves it too, and the house smells like peanut butter, which is AWESOME!!! -Suzanna

  6. Hi there. Fairly new to baking. I tried this recipe and I absolutely LOVE the flavor but it came out a bit crumbly for me… no one else seems to be posting anything but positive things so I’m thinking I might have done something wrong.. any suggestions for the next time I try it?

    1. Not sure what you might have done wrong (maybe nothing!)…the loaf is a little more crumbly than other loaves like banana bread. If it’s really crumbly, maybe add a teensy bit more milk (a tsp at a time to the batter)?
      Hope that helps!

  7. Sooo…I baked a gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free version of this today which worked out just fine so I thought I’d share my substitutions: 1 c. of coconut milk for the cow’s milk, 1/4 c. margarine instead of butter, Celimix egg replacer (1 tbsp. powder to 4 tbsp. water for the one egg), 2 c. Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free flour for the regular flour, 1 1/2 tsp. xantham gum. Everyone in my family has tried it and given it their stamp of approval.

  8. This sounds so good. I can’t want to try this. Only thing is I try to avoid eating sugars unless its honey or raw agave. Do you think I can use that instead of the regular and brown sugar? Does anyone have any ideas on how to replace brown sugar? Thanks!

  9. HI,

    1. I’m thrilled you found it too Pam! Also, I’m not really sure which of my recipes would be good for a diabetic diet, but I do have many delicious and healthy recipes you can try! Just have a look under my recipe tabs and I’m sure there will be something! πŸ™‚
