Can I Make This Peanut Free?
Yes, if you have a peanut allergy, you can easily make this peanut free using sunflower seed butter. It works perfectly and has the same texture as creamy peanut butter.
What brand of Peanut Butter should I buy?
Most grocery stores now have a lot of food and sweet treats for the ketogenic diet, but you do need to read the ingredients for sugars.
Sometimes the names of sugar are in disguise and you can mistakenly eat keto desserts that you think won't spike your blood sugar, but actually do, and raise your insulin levels.
I recommend looking for store bought products with minimal ingredients listed. For peanut butter, simple ingredients with just peanuts and salt would be best.
The type of peanut butter does matter when making this keto bread. I would not recommend crunchy peanut butter, you need smooth for this bread.
You can also use other nut butters, if you don't like peanut butter or sunflower seed butter. You could use an unsweetened almond butter or macadamia nut butter, or cashew butter. Just make sure they don't include added sugar.
How can I make this Tree Nut Free?
If you have a tree nut allergy, you can easily make this tree nut free. Swap the almond milk and almond flour with sunflower seed flour and either coconut milk or whole milk or cream.
Can I swap almond flour for coconut flour?
No, you can't evenly swap almond flour with coconut flour but if you need to make these tree nut free, you can evenly swap almond flour with sunflower seed flour.
Adapted from my Low Carb English Muffin Loaf
The texture is amazing. Almost like an English muffin with some nooks and crannies and light and airy, not dense. Add that bit of chocolate swirl over the top and it's almost like a little bit of dessert with your breakfast!
Enjoy this bread for breakfast or as a side or as a snack, but whenever you eat this, you won't be eating any guilt! It's super low in carbs!
When I made my Blueberry English Muffin Loaf which I had adapted from my orginial English Muffin made in 2 minutes, another version was in the works in my head before I could have the chance to make it in the kitchen.
The first time I tested this out adapting from my orginial recipe from the Blueberry English Muffin, it was slightly oily so I did some adjustments with the almond flour and butter and it came out perfect the second time around! You can enjoy this quick bread right out of the oven, but I like toasting each slice for a little bit more crispness.
Can I use Monk Fruit sweetener instead of Stevia?
You can use any sugar substitute you prefer. I always have on hand vanilla liquid stevia and use it often in a dessert recipe, but you could swap it with what you prefer.
Use my Sweetener Guide & Conversion chart to decide how much of a different sweetener to use in place of the vanilla stevia I used in this healthy peanut butter bread.
I would recommend using a liquid Monk Fruit because it is just as sweet as stevia. If you use a granulated sweetener like erythritol in granular Swerve, it is not as sweet as either monk fruit or stevia so you will need more of it.
Check my conversion chart for help with this.
Can I replace the unsweet chocolate with sugar free low carb chocolate?
Yes, if you decide to replace the unsweetened chocolate I used, also replace the chocolate liquid stevia as that is what I used to sweeten the chocolate. You won't need it if you are using a store bought sugar-free chocolate chips or bar, like Lily's brand.
Got another version for me to make with this loaf? Let me know, I love a good challenge!
