Irish Peanut Butter Soda Bread
It is just about time for St. Patricks day! I thought I would share with you a fun and easy recipe to get you into the spirit of things 🙂 The flavor is subtle and not overpowering in this crusty bread version with a similar texture of baking powder biscuits. It comes together very quick and can be eaten with honey butter, jam or a savory dish like stew. This Recipe Features our Nut Fusion Harvest Blend – Order Here.

Recipe type: Bread
- ¼ cup butter, melted and browned
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1½ cups whole wheat flour
- ½ cup oats
- 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ cup dried fruit (hold out until the kneading step)
- 1 egg white, beaten (hold for last step)
- 1½ cups buttermilk or substitute
- ⅔ cup Nut Fusions Harvest Blend (for a sweeter version use Original Cinn)
- Mix together the butter, flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- In a separate bowl, blend together buttermilk and Nut Fusions Harvest Blend.
- Blend milk mixture into flour mixture just until it comes together.
- Turn onto a floured surface, flatten out and sprinkle with currents, raisins or other dried fruit of your choice.
- (Large pieces of fruit should be chopped into smaller pieces).
- Knead fruit gently into dough until it comes together.
- Divide the dough in half and form a round ball with each.
- Flatten each ball slightly and place on an un-greased baking sheet five inches apart.
- Use a knife to cut a ½ inch deep X in the top of each round of dough. Brush tops with beaten egg white.
- Bake the loaves until they turn golden brown and a tester into the center comes out clean, about 40 to 45 minutes.
- Cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
