In a quest to find a sandwich bread that my super-picky 5-year-old would eat, I decided to try peanut meal. He already likes peanuts and peanut butter, so I was hoping that it wouldn’t be a hard sell. And, guess what?!? Both kids really like this bread! It’s peanuty taste goes great with a PB&J…it’s just more “P!”
I like that peanuts are less expensive than almonds and almond flour. And I tossed in some flax to increase the fiber. In addition to PB&J sandwiches, we make french toast with this bread at least once a week. Enjoy!
Delicious and easy quick bread. Gluten-free, wheat-free, grain-free, low carb.
- -1 cup peanut meal (made from unsalted, dry roasted peanuts; make same way as almond meal)
- -3/4 cup golden flaxseed meal
- -2 tablespoons coconut flour
- -1/4 teaspoon salt
- -1.5 teaspoons baking soda
- -.75 teaspoon stevia glycerite or sweetener equal to 3/4 cup sugar
- -5 eggs
- -1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- -1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl until well blended. In a separate bowl, slightly beat the eggs, then add the coconut oil and apple cider vinegar.
Pour the dry ingredients into the wet, mixing thoroughly until smooth (this may take a minute). Let the mixture sit while you preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a small loaf pan* (mine measures 7.75 x 3.75") and, after the mixture has set for about 5 minutes, pour batter in, smoothing out the top.
Bake 20-25 minutes until sharp knife in center comes out clean.
*Baking gluten-free breads requires a small loaf pan. There is not much rise, so if you bake this in a traditional 9x5" pan, your loaf will be extremely short and squatty. When I first started gluten-free baking, I purchased a two-pack of small disposable loaf pans from Walmart and just reused them until I decided to go ahead and buy a "real" pan.
This loaf will make 24 "mini" slices. If you'd like larger slices, as pictured, slice the loaf in half, then lengthwise.
