One more treat from our sweet potato bounty. I love using food that we have grown ourselves!
We made this for breakfast but it would make a perfect afternoon snack too. The bread is not too sweet and it's very filling. The peanut butter gives a bit of extra protein and the sweet potato sneaks in some veggies! It's delicious by itself but would be very tasty with butter or cream cheese too.
Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Peanut Butter Bread
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25-60 minutes
Ingredients (1 standard or 3 mini loaves)
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup mashed sweet potato (approx. 1 medium)
- 3/4 cup milk
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.
Using a hand mixer, add in egg, sweet potato, milk, peanut butter and vanilla. Mix until well combined. Dough will be very thick, almost like a cookie dough.
Place batter into greased loaf pan (I use mini loaves because I'm feeding toddlers. This made 3 mini loaves or it will make one standard sized loaf).
Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 mins for standard sized loaf, or 25-30 mins for mini loaves.
Loaves also freeze for quick breakfast or snacks later!
