I'm back with another tasty and easy recipe for you all!
Yet again, I have based this recipe off of my love for Kodiak Cake products and their convenience and health. This week’s recipe is a very easy quick bread that requires zero kneading or proving, tastes amazing, and fits nicely into a balanced diet.
I loosely used a recipe for a bread off of the Kodiak cake website, however my version has its own twist and uses regular pancake mix instead of gluten free, olive oil, whole milk, crunchy peanut butter, extra greek yogurt, and extra honey! It is a very robust and hearty bread, perfect with soups and sandwiches as a meal, or even plain with some butter as a snack. I have also included lower calorie substitutions down below for those with different dietary goals than me.
For individuals with peanut allergies, you can substitute any type of nut butter (or eliminate it altogether) to suit your dietary needs. (BONUS: If you purchase Kodiak Cake products at www.KodiakCakes.com, use the discount code WELLNESSFORTHEWIN15 to get 15% off your order!) Happy baking!
2 cups Kodiak Cakes buttermilk protein pancake mix
1 cup old fashioned oats, plus extra for topping
¾ cup greek yogurt
½ cup whole milk
⅓ cup olive oil
½ cup honey
2 tbsp crunchy peanut butter (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a loaf pan or small baking pan (I used a 9x9 pan...because that's what I had lol)
Mix pancake mix and oats together in large mixing bowl
In smaller bowl, mix eggs, yogurt, milk, oil, honey and peanut butter in medium bowl until blended together
Mix wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined. The dough should be sticky and a bit clumpy, not wet and smooth
Spread dough into the pan and bake for about 40-45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool, remove from pan, and enjoy!
Per serving (1/8th of pan)
(Numbers are approximate)
For a lighter version, substitute skim, 1%, or 2% milk for whole milk, and reduce the amount of peanut butter by half or omit entirely
For those with peanut, nut, and dairy intolerances, substitute a milk alternative, and substitute a seed butter alternative for peanut butter or other nut butter.
Let me know what you thin of it if you try it out!
