Peanut Butter Breakfast Bread

PEANUT BUTTERRRRR. Whether for dipping baby carrots, on a warm piece of toast, or eaten straight off the spoon, peanut butter is pretty satisfying stuff. This recipe was inspired by an urge to combine peanut butter and toast/bread in a relatively healthy, breakfast-appropriate way. And man is the aroma of peanut butter baking glorious. Even hours later as I re-entered my dorm room, the lingering aroma was like a warm hug. Packed with peanut-y protein yet fluffy with a tender crumb, this breakfast bread is another in a growing arsenal (see herehere, and here) that I’m quite proud of!
