I used my own mix of 3 cups "1/2 and 1/2 bread flour" (1/2 unbleached flour + 1/2 whole wheat flour + 1 tbs vital wheat gluten for every cup of flour ), about 1 tbsp of molasses, 1/4 c. sugar plus a handful (or two) of chocolate chips. It came out very tall and fluffy after baking on 1.5lb loaf, whole wheat cycle -- with a dark color, great aroma, and a lightly sweet taste! The kids loved it warm with a little butter and I knew there was a lot of protein and nutrition without all the sugar and carbs of cold cereal, most muffins, or even sweetened oatmeal!
I was expecting a sweeter tasting bread, but it just tasted like bread with a little smell of peanuts. My DH and I both thought it was awful, but my 5 and 3 yr. olds ate it! I didn't use any gluten and I reversed the order of ingredients in the pan.
This was really great! I am always looking for something easy that has little or no sugar for a snack for my son. I used 1 overripe banana I had in my freezer. It worked just fine and my son loved it!
Great tasting bread. I didn't have gluten, and it worked fine. I wasn't too sure about the bananas - mashed?? diced?? so I diced them and it worked well.
please what is package yeast and gluten as i live in nz and only seen edmonds yeast and have not seen gluten for peanut and banana bread witch i would like to try thank you troops
