Flourless Peanut Butter Bread

This gluten free bread flourless bread is easy to make with just five ingredients. It’s a quick and easy bread option for those looking for something flourless, gluten free or low carb. It bakes, looks, feels and taste similar to wheat flour breads.

While researching low carb and flourless bread options in order to create my cauliflower bread, I came across a recipe for flourless peanut butter bread. Of course I had to try it!

I’ve made many flourless peanut butter desserts before so the idea of being able to make a bread didn’t seem too unbelievable. This bread recipe has a preparation process and ingredient list very similar to my flourless peanut butter mug cake. In just a few minutes the batter was done and into the oven it went.

Sure enough, what came out was definitely like bread. You can smear it with butter, top it with avocado slices, or maybe eat it with jelly! It holds together quite well.

  1. Can you leave out the sugar ?

  2. Which vinegar did you use, white or Apple cider?

  3. Can you make this in a 9×5 loaf pan?

  4. Can you swap the peanut butter for any nut/ nut free butter?

  5. Can you use a regular sized bread pan, instead of the two mini loafs?

  6. Is this something you would eat with Turkey, lettuce and Mayo? or more of a breakfast bread?

  7. Oh my goodnes! I made it today and it is delicious. I wonder what  it would be like a bit sweeter and maybe some nuts! 

  8. Would I adjust anything if using a muffin tin?

  9. I’m super intrigued by this recipe! First time seeing it. When you say smooth peanut butter, did you use natural peanut butter or is it one with sugars/oils/emulsifiers added? I’m wondering what type to use and would prefer to use natural if possible.

    • I used the smooth processed peanut butter but I think it should work with natural peanut butter too. When I said smooth, I was trying to distinguish from the crunchy kind with chunks of chopped nuts.

  10.   My head is dizzy from all of the gluten-free flour blend recipes on the internet. I am allergic to so many of the ingredients including the most popular ones like potato flour, corn starch, tapioca starch, and the list goes on. The other day I was so disgusted that I wanted to cry.  Then suddenly I remembered “flourless” recipes, so I searched the internet and came upon your website.  I just tried your recipe with cashew nuts but mistakenly used baking SODA rather than baking powder. UGh ! But the end product, though not ideal, was good enough for me to feel encouraged and eager  to try again using baking powder next time. I think you have solved my problem. I wish I could hug you ! Thank you so much  !!
    PS- I’m going to try the flourless sandwich bread recipe next time, but would like to know of other variations that people have tried such as adding sesame seeds, nuts, raisins, etc. 

  11. Could you use honey instead of sugar?

  12. Any clue on carb count? I plan on using Splenda.

    • Try caloriecount or myfitnesspal websites. They both have an option to enter a recipe and it’ll calculate the nutritional data.

  13. Can I leave out the vinegar and add something else instead of that ? And also could I use crunchy peanut butter instead of smooth ? 

    • the recipe works best with smooth peanut butter. I have not tried it with crunchy. You do need the vinegar in there because it reacts with the baking soda to allow the bread to rise.

  14. Have you ever added a mashed banana to the recipe?  What are you thoughts to adding one?  

    • Hmm, I have not tried that. If you just add the banana without altering the other ingredients, it might make too dense of a batter (too many liquids) If you reduce some of the eggs or pb and replace with banana, it might work though it will likely alter the texture of the bread.

  15. OMG I just made it with apple cider vinegar and my own homemade crunchy PB and no sugar and it’s just heavenly, both in texture and taste! I doubled the recipe and made it in a regular size loaf pan in 50 min. and it’s the most bread-like flourless bread I’ve ever made… and believe me I’ve tried them a?l, flax, coconut flour, almond flour, oopsie bread, quinoa, corn, cassava… you name it. Thank you so much!!

  16. Just made this bread and I am in bread heaven! So so so yummy! Instead of the sugar I used honey. I am a spice girl so I had a little bit of cinnamon and all spices to mine! Truly delicious and I will make this again and again! 

  17. How many carbs is in this?

  18. Perfect! the taste is great!! a little imagination try Nutella instead follow recipe or pumpkin there are many ways this can be used.

  19.      Better to double. The ingredients, and use. A regular size loaf pan, or the loaf will be a little flat, not exactly a good size for sandwich, a we would do in our restaurant in Dewey beach, de. Good that these ideas are getting some screen time. Great for people like me who had to change my intake of carbs, since I got my new liver ! Thanks for this neat little treat . Anybody out there have similar stuff to share? As always, Sharky ….::;…,,;
