A perfect recipe for Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Bread

This gluten-free peanut butter chocolate bread topped with oats is simply divine. You can toast slices of bread in a pan, make French toast or perhaps a delightful breakfast strata with day old bread.

I must admit it tastes magical! You may even use regular flour and add mashed bananas. We absolutely savour it in any way possible.

I partnered with the National Peanut Board to share my favorite Peanut Butter recipes. What do you think of my Peanut Butter Chocolate Bread?

Peanut Butter Chocolate Bread Recipes

Frequently, I would say that my household runs on peanut-butter. We eat it for breakfast or a snack and many times for lunch as well.

To be completely honest, sometimes we even make breakfast for dinner and serve it with a cold glass of milk or a relaxing cup of tea.

So here is one fun fact about me. Graciously allow me to explain. While my kids grew up eating peanut butter ever since they were able to eat it, I did not taste Peanut Butter before the age of 18. I know! It is probably shocking to so many people.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Bread Recipe

I genuinely enjoyed everything that included peanuts, but it was not popular treat where I was raised. I do not think we even had it in our markets.

Maybe in some specialty stores, but I never had seen it before I came to the USA. Here is where my love for Peanut Butter blossomed.

That being said, nowadays I eagerly devour it with a spoon when I desperately need a quick snack. A spoon of PB with a piece of delicious chocolate is my daily after a workout.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Bread

I am pretty certain I have caught up to 18 years of not eating it because peanut butter made from roasted peanuts are probably one of my favorite flavors, especially in a decadent dessert.

I truly hope you guys make this recipe with your favorite Peanut butter brand. Now it is your turn to spread the peanut butter love!

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Bread
Yield: 1 Loaf, serves 8

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Bread

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 50 minutes
Cooling Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

This gluten-free peanut butter chocolate bread topped with oats is simply divine. You can toast slices of bread in a pan, make French toast or perhaps a delightful breakfast strata with day old bread.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Whole Milk
  • 1/4 cup Sour Cream
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 3/4 cup Swerve Granulating Sugar
  • 1 cup Smooth Peanut Butter
  • 1 3/4 Gluten Free Flour
  • 1 tbsp. Baking Powder
  • 1 1/4 cup GF Rolled Oats, reserve 1/4 cup for the top
  • 1 cup Chocolate Chunks or Chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Warm up about 2 cups of water and place peanut butter jar in the large cup of a saucepan. This method will soften the peanut butter. It will be easier to incorporate to the smooth constancy with the rest of the ingredients. You may also add peanut butter in the microwave-safe dish and use the melt method until peanut butter is completely soft.
  3. In a large bowl combine warm milk, sour cream, eggs, and soften peanut butter. Using an electric hand mixer, mix all the ingredients until smooth.
  4. Measure all the dry ingredients and combine them together.
  5. Once combined slowly add to the wet and with a spatula to prevent over mixing, combine wet and dry ingredients.
  6. Pour into the loaf pan, lined with parchment paper if possible or use nonstick pan well-greased.
  7. Bake for 45-50 minutes in the middle rack of the oven.
  8. Make sure to check the bread after 20 minutes of baking. If the top of the bread is browning too fast, cover it with aluminum foil and then continue baking until the bread is cooked.
  9. You may remove the loaf from the baking pan after 10 minutes but allow the bread to cool down completely before slicing.

Notes

You may use:

  • Any brand of Peanut Butter that you prefer.
  • Chocolate or omit if you do not like it.
  • Regular Flour instead of Gluten Free
  • Regular Sugar instead of Swerve

Spiral Twist Bread Rolls

Spiral Twist Bread Rolls with all purpose dough recipe

All Purpose Dough Recipe included with Spiral Twist Bread Rolls

I just love baking homemade bread. So many amazing bread recipes that we can make with different shapes just like these tasty spiral twist bread rolls.

I find it relaxing when I am under stress. However, if I am happy, I would dance while kneading my dough with blasting music from my Bluetooth speaker.

It is most certainly win-win situation whether if you are happy or sad.

I do not know about you, but I actually love kneading the dough with my hands. I just love the feeling of kneading it and playing at the same time.

Well, I got to tell you, it can be quite soothing. Try it sometimes if you are up for a challenge.

Spiral Twist Bread Rolls with all purpose dough recipe

Down in the recipe card, I included my go-to dough recipe. It is all-purpose, meaning you can make bread, rolls, cinnamon rolls as well as pizza with this dough.

It cannot be any more multi-purpose than that, right?! Also, sometimes I add milk and sometimes I do not. It just depends. I feel like the addition of milk and the egg gives extra richness to the dough.

Spiral Twist Bread Rolls

My kids just loved making sandwiches with these beauties. That being said, I love spreading on a warm roll a bit of butter and jam. They are absolutely perfect to take to school or work.

I would definitely double the amount of the ingredients because they are really tasty. I would love to make it often but I do not. It is simply because I would eat them all. I really love freshly baked bread.

Allow them to rise for 45 to 60 minutes before baking.

Spiral Twist Bread Rolls
Yield: 1 Pound Dough, makes 5 Rolls

Spiral Twist Bread Rolls

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Additional Time: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours 45 minutes

Spiral Twist Bread Rolls with all-purpose dough recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup lukewarm Water
  • 1 cup lukewarm Whole Milk
  • 1 package Dry Yeast
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1 large Egg, beaten, PLUS 1 egg for brushing
  • 4 cups All-Purpose Flour, plus for dusting
  • 3/4 tablespoon Salt

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, stir together the water, milk, sugar, and dry yeast. Let stand for approximately 10 minutes, or until the yeast starts to bubble. Add in the egg and stir to combine well.
  2. Add in the salt and mix with the flour. Keep adding flour a bit at the time, still stirring until absorbed. Then, with the mixer on low speed, gradually add in the remaining flour until combined. Increase speed to medium and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic about 5 minutes.
  3. Shape the dough into a ball and place inside a greased mixing bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise until doubled in size, about one hour and a half to two hours. Keep it the warmer area such as microwave or turned off oven.
  4. Punch the dough down. Now the dough is ready to be shaped and used as you wish. You can make bread, differently shaped rolls, pizza or dinner rolls with this all-purpose dough. This amount of dough makes 5 rolls at 90 grams each or 8 smaller ones at 56 grams, 1 pizza, 1 bread loaf. It usually weights just a bit over 1 pound of dough. Double the amount if you wish to make more rolls.

Spiral Twist Bread Rolls

Spiral Twist Bread Rolls

  1. Measure the amount of dough then calculate how many you wish to make. I had 2 pounds of dough, which is double the amount of ingredients up there. I made 10 rolls for sandwiches.
  2. Cut each roll into two equal parts, then roll both into the long ropes, about 8 inches long.
  3. Connect the top and pinch, then twist and pinch the bottom of the twist. Now, make the spiral by twirling it from the right to the left and twirl inside. At the very end, pinch from the underneath to hide it. You are left with a beautiful looking twist roll. Looks almost like a flower.
  4. Allow them to rise for at least 45 minutes. It would be best if you allow them to rise for 60 minutes just to almost double in size.
  5. Mix one egg with a pinch of salt (salt will help egg wash to be less stringy when you applying). Brush on each roll egg wash.
  6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200C).
  7. Bake the rolls for 30 to 35 minutes, depending on your oven, or until the rolls are golden brown and lighter when you pick them up.
  8. Allow them to cool down for at least 15 minutes before eating. Make sure to cover them with the cotton towel to allow them to get soft and even tastier.

Notes

This amount of dough makes 5 rolls at 90 grams each, or 8 smaller ones at 56 grams. It makes 1 pizza or 1 bread loaf.

It usually weights just a bit over 1 pound of dough. Double the amount if you wish to make more rolls.

You can do all the kneading with your hands just like I did. It takes a bit of arm and hand workout but it is doable. Knead for about 10 minutes until the dough is elastic and not as sticky.

Mini Keto Everything Bagels

Easy, Delicious, Mini Keto Everything Bagels.

Let’s just make something clear here… These are not, and I repeat precisely, these are not your traditional bagels. Now that I got that off my chest, let me continue.

When I started this Keto lifestyle, I missed nothing more than bread. Bread to me is like everything. So, my friends, I made my own bread. I am serious! Click right here.

Check out other bread recipes

With that being said, the other day I was like “man, I wish I had some bagels with this delicious whipped cream cheese” so I made my own.

No, they are not fluffy, sink gracefully your teeth into the doughy deliciousness, but they do their outstanding job.

Which is replacing or better said substituting the original and hitting the spot at the same time.

Mini Keto Everything Bagels

I set myself a goal that I will do this Keto thing for 15 days, then extended to a month, now I have changed my mind yet again and I will go to 3 months.

Willingly allowing myself every now and then a little cheat day or rather a food item such as apple pie, banana cream pie or a bowl of real mashed potatoes.

Delicious potatoes! Oh, yes! I miss potatoes the most, but cauliflower somewhat replacing it, if I close my eyes and really believe it’s a cheesy potato. haha

Mini Keto Everything Bagels

Jokes on the side, so far it has been undoubtedly a really good experience.

These are extremely easy bagels. I got this pan for baked donuts so these bagels are on the mini side; that’s why we can eat two of them per serving. 

You can find two sizes of these pans, so I picked up a larger one. I don’t actually know if anyone selling a full-size bagel pan.

I wish I knew they had them on AMAZON cause it would save me considerable time looking for it.

Mini Keto Everything Bagels

Anyhow, I really hope y’all like this one because it literally is saving me not to go back to eating loads of carbs.

Also, I received Pereg ”Everything but the Bagel” Seasoning. In love with it! Usually, I would make my own but I must say it was really tasty. We totally recommend it!

Mini Keto Everything Bagels
Yield: 4 Servings

Mini Keto Everything Bagels

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 18 minutes
Total Time: 28 minutes

Tasty and easy Low Carb bagels.

Ingredients

  • 3 Cage-Free Large Brown Organic Eggs separated
  • 1/8 teaspoon Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Bragg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Super Fine Almond Meal Flour 128g
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 tablespoons Sour Cream All Natural
  • 3 tablespoons Organic Unsalted Butter room temp
  • Everything Bagel Seasoning

Instructions

  1. Separate egg whites and yolks.
  2. Mix Yolks with Sour cream, butter, and salt; set aside
  3. Mix Egg whites with a drop or two of Apple cider Vinegar.
  4. Combine the two by folding.
  5. To the almond meal add baking soda, mix and fold into the eggs.
  6. Add into “donut” tin, then sprinkle some everything bagel seasoning, if desired.You can use a spoon or piping bag. I used a ziplock bag and it worked just fine to get the batter into the donut cups without a mess. Fill the bag, close, get the air out and then cut the corner with scissors. 
  7. Preheat the oven to 375F and bake for 18 minutes or until golden brown.

Notes

  • You may make bigger bagels. I fill the donut cups 3/4 which gives just enough room for them to rise. They will not rise too much, but baking soda gives them a small amount of sponginess.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar is an amazing addition, plus it replaces cream of tartar wonderfully.
  • In regard to almond flour, I measured it in the measuring cup, 1 cup, and then I used my scale which read 128 grams. If you are only on low carb diet than a gram up or down doesn’t make too much difference, but keto is more carb-restricted so just measure.
