Almond Butter Bread
For a quick, less-complicated bread recipe, try this almond butter-based one. With only five ingredients, it's very simple to whip up in a pinch. This recipe can be finicky, so if it needs more than the recommended time in the oven to set, don't panic. At such a low oven temperature it's possible to have fluctuations in cooking time.
½ cup unflavored, unsweetened whey protein powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ cup unsweetened almond butter
1 tablespoon butter for loaf pan
Directions Preparing:15 minCooking:40 min
Step 1Heat the oven to 300°F.
Step 2In a small bowl, whisk together the whey, salt, and baking powder.
Step 3In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to whip the almond butter until creamy. Add one egg at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat the batter until fluffy.
Step 4Fold the whey mixture into the almond batter. Mix gently until smooth.
Step 5Grease the inside of a loaf pan with the tablespoon of butter by rubbing it along the walls and into each corner.
Step 6Transfer the mixture to the loaf pan. Place it in the preheated oven. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the center is set.
Step 7Remove from the oven. Cool the loaf for 5 to 10 minutes. Run a knife along the side edges of the pan to loosen the loaf, and tip the pan upside down to remove it. Place the loaf on a cooling rack to cool completely, about 5 minutes more.
Step 8Slice the bread, as needed, and refrigerate covered in plastic wrap.
