There’s no doubt that quick bread is one of the best baking creations. Halfway between a poundcake and a loaf of bread, these breakfast breads are so tasty and versatile. You have probably had the classics like Pumpkin Bread and Zucchini Bread, but this Peanut Butter Bread recipe is perfect when you are looking for a little something else.

This Peanut Butter Bread is what happens when a peanut butter cookie dreams of being a breakfast bread. You just need a few common pantry ingredients, a heaping scoop of creamy peanut butter, a mixing bowl, and hour to get a delicious fresh baked peanut buttery bread. 

Rich, melt in your mouth, peanut butter flavor is in every bite of this bread recipe. It is perfect on its own as a snack, breakfast on the go, or with some sweet frosting for dessert. To make Peanut Butter Bread taste like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, spread a spoonful of Strawberry Topping on a slice.


Enjoy this creamy peanut butter breakfast bread with coffee or a cold glass of milk. Frost a loaf of Peanut Butter Bread with Cream Cheese Frosting or Chocolate Ganache for a beautiful homemade holiday gift. This easy bread keeps well in the freezer. You can make a couple loaves at a time, one to eat right away and one to store for later.

This bread recipe is 100 percent peanut butter flavor, but just like other peanut butter baked goods, you can easily add other flavor combinations. I’ve included some ideas of what goes with peanut butter, like bananas and chocolate. I’d love to hear what you love to mix with peanut butter in the comments!

Note for Peanut Butter Bread:

While you can substitute other nut butters for this recipe, I don’t recommend using reduced fat peanut butter. You want a full fat nut butter to add moisture and give the best flavor. I prefer using natural peanut butter because it’s just ground peanuts, no extra oil or sugar.

    1. I haven’t tested it but you may need to adjust the liquid (or add water) when substituting with it as it has a higher protein content which could cause it to be dry. Try adding 1 teaspoon of water at a time until it’s the right consistency if you notice that’s an issue. I’d love to know how it turns out if you decide to try. Thanks!

  1. This bread is so delicious. Can’t wait to make it for my grandkids. I love it spread with peanut butter on top for a quick breakfast or afternoon snack. Next time I will try it with Nutella. I like to freeze it in slices so that I can pull out what I need and the rest stays fresh. So glad I found this recipe.

  2. Whoa! This peanut butter bread is so tasty and flavorful. I’ve never had peanut butter bread before, but it was worth the wait.
