Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen #40:Peanut Butter Sandwich Bread

Time for Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen
(A weekly linky where you can share your special time in the kitchen, such a great place for learning. You can also link up Kid-Friendly Recipes)

The linky is at the bottom.

As I have been trying to eat healthier these days I have decided I can't keep sharing sugar-laden snacks on Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen. It is just going to take me some time to find some good recipes. I'm sure we will still be sharing some, as hubby still craves those sweet treats and the girls love them too. But I am going to try to share healthier recipes occasionally.

This week I found a recipe for Peanut Butter Sandwich Bread (someone shared it on Facebook). This was posted over at Satisfying Eats. There is no flour in this bread, which intrigued me. Here is the ingredient list:

Easy Almond/Peanut Butter Bread

1 cup natural almond/peanut butter, smooth (boy does it take some muscles to stir that peanut butter)
3 eggs
1 Tablespoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt 
2 servings Stevia (to taste, more if you want sweeter bread)

Now I have never used Stevia before, and hubby found Stevia in the Raw, I am not sure if it can be substituted for the Pure Stevia Extract that I saw in the picture over at Satisfying Eats, but, I did substitute it as it was all I had.

Very simple directions.
Blend all the ingredients together.

The children of course enjoyed the reaction of the vinegar and the baking soda. These ingredients are supposed to help the bread rise.

Line loaf pan with foil.

Pour batter into pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 22-25 minutes.  

As you can see, my bread didn't really rise well. I am not sure what happened. The taste was kind of bland and the texture was a bit dry, but it was pretty good toasted with jelly. I know, there goes the sugar free benefit. 

You are supposed to be able to use it for sandwiches, but I don't see that happening until I figure out what went wrong.

Do you have your children help you in the kitchen?  What lessons do they learn? Do you have any kid friendly recipes to share?

I'd love to see your posts, whether you have done something this week or some time in the past. Just link up below. This is a weekly linky.
