This Gluten Free Peanut Butter Donut Bread is simple to make and just the right sweetness. A moist bread topped with a peanut topping that is great for breakfast or dessert. Grain free, dairy free and naturally sweetened.
I made this for my boyfriends birthday. He requested donuts and I was struggling getting them perfect, but I knew I could make a delicious bread and the nut topping really gives it donut vibes. He LOVED it and I ended up making another loaf right away.
This bread is super simple to make, mixed in one bowl and comes together in just minutes. It lasts well for a week, making it great to make and have ready for a quick snack. It uses just a handful of ingredients that you probably already have on hand. I haven't tried an egg replacement, but flax eggs could definitely be tried if needed.
Peanut butter is the star here, but almond or cashew butter could be used if you prefer, making this paleo. It's just whatever you like best because any nut butter would work. I like to use a natural peanut butter that is stirred well. The peanut topping could be replaced with almonds or cashews chopped as well to keep it paleo. All the other ingredients are compliant.
Bread Serving Options
This is of course good just as-is, but also super delicious with some jam or jelly on it. Like a new take on a pb&j. It's good warmed up a little, good with some ghee or better and would be good with a chocolate spread. I haven't tried that, but I know it would be an amazing combo. And of course more peanut butter for the ultimate peanut butter dessert.
