I wanted a 100% whole wheat bread that tasted good with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and that has a decent rise. This one not only tastes good, it rises more than than white-bread-flour recipe I used to make. It is also soft and freezes well. I make my bread on Sunday, then make and freeze my sandwiches for the week. Each day I take one out of the freezer and Friday's is just as good as the one on Monday. You can use any flavor jelly.

Love the recipe as I am always looking for healthier ways to feed my family. This is almost like a dessert bread I used grape jelly as I am allergic to strawberry. But will experiment with different jellies to see if the flavor changes. I used a regular oven instead of a bread maker bread came out fine. Cooked it for about 1hr and 15 mins on 350. Read More

It was okay. The peanut butter flavor was mild but left that dry PB taste in my mouth. I think I expected to actually taste jelly but I guess it was to just serve as a sweetener. Texture was nice though. Read More

I actually really liked it. The first time I made it, I used honey instead of jelly and it didn't bake all the way through (and I used an Oster bread machine as was in the directions). Even after baking it an additional fifteen minutes in a conventional oven, a significant portion in the middle never set. The next time I made it, I stuck to the recipe and used jelly, and it came out perfectly! Read More

While this is cooking it smells like peanuts and marshmallows! I make a lot of jams so this bread is handy to help use up my stocks.i made my loaf with marmalade. Amazing. Proves how versatile this recipe is. I also swapped out one cup of the flour for white flour, and I didn’t add any vital gluten. Made a tender loaf that still hangs together for cutting. The peanut flavor is not strong, just toothsome. I am going to try making French toast with it too...though it is flat out delish just with butter and a cup o’ something hot. Read More
