Keto Peanut Butter Bread

Step aside Almond flour bread, peanut butter has come to town

Some people don’t like the taste of almond bread, some people find almonds too expensive and so on and so forth. So I figured I’d take a shot and try this peanut butter bread recipe which is a 2g net carbs per slice and uses peanut butter, a rather common and cheap ingredient. So here is my take on it. It definitely is a worthy competitor to the almond bread as well as the mug bread.

Anyway you try it and tell me what you think. Cheers!

But peanut is a legume not a nut

Not everyone is aware of this fact. It’s been masquerading as a nut for a long time. Funny how it despite not being a nut, has nut in the name, peanut. Anyway I digress, the point I’m making is that 100 grams of peanuts have about 7 grams net carbs. It’s definitely acceptable on Keto if you count your macros. I like to limit my consumption to 30 grams in a day tops. When you cook this bread using peanut butter it’s just 2 g net carbs per slice. Not a bad deal if you ask me. So go on, butter your peanut butter bread.

    This is a great recipe! Taste more like bread than the keto almond flour bread. My wife thinks it tastes similar to wheat bread. Thank you Sahil. Horns Up!

    Do you have a mug version of this? I just put bread in the oven! So excited to see how it turns out. Also is it normal for the vinegar and baking powder to fizz and react together

    Can you swap out the stevia powder for eyrithol powdered or granulated sugar? Sorry…very new to keto here and really want to try making this, as well as your coconut bread. Thank you so much for your videos and recipes and making this keto lifestyle “diet” much more palatable for all of us newbies! Bless you.

      The stevia is optional. I must have used a small amount just for a hint of sweetness.

    Hey Sahil, I’ve tried the Keto pb recipe above and I must say it is awesome since my son is a type 1 diabetic, we’ve learned to incorporate more of a Keto diet for everyone. However I was curious do you think I could do 1/2 c mashed ripe banana and 1/2 c pb to this to make a pb banana bread recipe? I know bananas have tons of carbs but my son loves banana bread but the amount of carbs involved in actual banana bread isn’t ideal for his condition. Being able to make this for him would be quite amazing to say the least!!! Thanks Sahil, I look forward to your expert opinion!! Rock on!!🤘🏼

      Hi Nicole, I do believe you get something called ‘Banana Extract’ which can be used to add that flavour to the bread without having to add any actual banana.

        I actually just tried it tonight, good snow day project. Smells good, I put some crushed sunflower seeds on top. Didn’t use the stevia but added tiny bit of vanilla and cinnamon. My only question is how much it will raise, I used my smaller loaf tin but it might be larger than the one used. Let you know how it turns out.

        Ok, smells great and it did rise but need a narrower pan to get more height. I would skip the seeds i crushed on top next time. Not as strong a taste as PB, but good texture and not eggy at all. I’ll see how it goes tomorrow for meals.

          Hahaha, I totally forgot the sunflower seeds can react to baking soda and heat. After the end piece I cut another and the inside of the bread is a bright blue/green. I wish I could post a picture. Totally OK to eat and I was amused by the science lesson but just a note if you make it likely will turn green. Going to play with recipe a little to see if can get more rise out of it, really thinking a narrower pan would do the trick. Definite taste of sunflower seeds vs. peanut butter.

    Wow, I think you really hit the ball out of the park on this one!!! My family LOVES peanut butter, and this was so healthy, easy, cheap, and delicious. My 2 picky toddlers asked for 3 pieces each (that is half the loaf inhaled by toddlers!), and I have a feeling when my husband and teenage son discover this, the rest of the loaf will be gone in a matter of minutes. Seriously… 😉 Can’t wait to try making it into pumpkin bread, or adding banana extract, or chocolate… Whatever I fancy in the future, so versatile!
    I tried to cut it into 20 servings and there was just no way I could make it that thin, so I only managed 13 slices. That raised the calories a bit and the net carbs went up to 2.6 per slice per my calculations, but that is really not a big deal to me at all.
    Thank you, Sahil! This will be a regular recipe in our house!!

    I used about 80g peanut butter, an egg, about 1/4 tsp baking powder, a tiny spoon pure Stevia and 1/2 tsp white vinegar, mixed thoroughly in a mug and microwaved for 90 seconds. It overtopped the mug and fell right out, except for a bit stuck to the bottom because I didn’t grease it. Four slices buttered was lunch for two (with a mug of tea). A-mazing! How does peanut butter and egg make breadcrumbs????

    Made it again but spiced up the PB (few dashes soy/hot sauce/ginger & spices/herbs) and more narrow pan from IKEA(regular US loaf pan is too wide). Definitely keeping in my line up of breads, great toasted with some butter.

    I am really disappointed that I used an entire cup of peanut butter on this. I was really, really excited about a bread that was so easy and I expected would have so much flavor… but it doesn’t have any flavor. It tastes completely bland, and remarkably it doesn’t even taste like peanut butter! I used Teddy’s natural PB, so maybe that was the problem. Definitely would not recommend!

      Hi Maura, I’m sorry to hear that. I think one of the things I always recommend is taste your food as you go along. In this case tasting a bit of the cookie dough is a good idea. It helps you adjust things like sweetness etc. You could also add a pinch of sea salt which helps amp up the flavour. Anyway I hope you didn’t throw away the cookies because you can use them to make this amazing cheesecake recipe: https://headbangerskitchen.com/recipe/no-bake-peanut-butter-keto-cheesecake/

    Hi,
    I was wondering if vinegar should be 1 teaspoon, I noticed on another website it said 1 tablespoon. Would Apple cider vinegar be OK to use?

    I liked the idea of using no flour, thank you!!!

    Thank you for this wonderful recipe. We made this bread today and it was really deeelicious..!
    One question though, what is the shelf life for this? Should I refrigerator or keep under room temperature? Thanks again and please keep posting your Keto recipes.
