Eggless Almond Butter Bread

(from 2 reviews)
Almond Butter Bread

In a recent episode of Paula Deen’s show in Food TV, I saw her preparing a very easy peanut butter bread.Β  Since I’m not a big fan of peanut butter I thought of making the bread with almond butter instead.Β  The taste was amazing and you won’t believe how easy it is to prepare.

This almond butter quick bread looks amazing right! But do you want to bake an easy white bread recipe using yeast. Then this white bread recipe should be bookmarked.

My Notes:
  1. I happened to check the reviews in the food network site after baking the bread while writing this post. The recipe was given only 3 stars and most of them had written that the bread was too dry and did not have enough peanut butter taste. So they had suggested reducing the amount of baking powder, increasing the quantity of peanut butter, reducing the baking time, or using organic peanut butter because it has more oil content. But I did not have any problem with my bread. The only change I made was using almond butter and added a couple of toasted almonds. The bread was very moist and sweet enough by itself. Jam was also not necessary. The almond butter did have a lot of oil in it, maybe that gave the moistness to the bread.
  2. Adding toasted nuts in the batter gave a very nice crunch. But I wouldn’t top the bread with nuts the next time because they get toasted once again and some of the nuts became little bitter. Not topping the bread with almonds will also facilitate easy slicing of the bread.
  3. Cool completely before slicing the bread, so that it does not crumble. I would even recommend to 2 to 3 hours of cooling.
  4. Also check out the health benefits of almonds here.
  5. Update: My friend Roma from Bangalore, India has tried another cool version of the Almond Bread. Since almond butter is not available in India she has used regular unsalted butter and has included powdered almonds and has got a very moist bread.

    Hi Madhu,

    I wan to bake this bread but couldnt find any almond butter here.
    How much amount of normal butter and almond powder I should use. And do I need to make other changes in the recipe.


    • Madhuram

      Why don’t you try it with peanut butter instead? I don’t think that your idea would work out well.

      • Kim

        But I read that you wrote as an update that your friend in India did that and it turned out well?

        • Madhuram

          Oh really!? I don’t remember it. Will have to check the post.

          • Kim

            Yes here

          • Madhuram

            Oh ok. Thank you for pointing it out πŸ™‚ But I have to tell that I haven’t tried it. So unable to comment.

    Hi Madhuram,

    I tried this yesterday. Very easy recipe, thanks for sharing this.

    I don’t know if it’s because I didn’t even out the batter after pouring into the tray, during the baking , the top layer with nuts for pushed to an angle and the batter under that rose high and even at 20mins into the baking the top got a little burnt. I still kept it for around 50 mins. My oven has only the gas marking and I set it to 5 after finding on the internet the equivalent of the temperature mentioned. Do you think it’s because of this ?

    The taste is just awesome & i will definitely make it again. Also I found its moist and sometimes its crumbling as I slice it ( I left it to cool overnight and only sliced in the morning ). How can I avoid this next time ?

    • Madhuram

      Tapping the pan after filling the batter helps to settle it down, removes air bubbles too. Also bread baking requires a little bit of tweaking because of the increased baking time. Sometimes you will have to loosely cover the pan with an aluminum foil after 20 minutes or so, so that the top doesn’t get burnt and the inside stays uncooked. By covering it with foil the bread will bake perfectly bother outside and inside. Yes leaving it overnight is a must for quick breads. Try using a serrated knife and making bigger slices.

  3. Rachel

    This worked well with sunbutter. I also added pumpkin bread spices.

    • Madhuram

      That’s great Rachel.

  4. HPasha

    Hi Madhuram,

    Can I use whole wheat flour instead of the white flour? Also for a gluten free version, would all purpose gluten free flour serve the purpose? What would you suggest?


    • Madhuram

      I wouldn’t suggest using whole wheat flour for this one. Maybe you should try 50% each of all-purpose and whole wheat flour. I have not tried this recipe using gluten-free flour, so don’t know how it would turn.

  5. Kavitha

    Will using wheat flour as a replacement work ? any additional effort to be done to make it work, ?

    • Madhuram

      I would suggest either using whole wheat pastry flour or half each of whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour. Only few recipes work well with the flour replacement and I’m not sure that this is such a recipe.

  8. Deepika


    Came across your blog recently. I was wondering if I can bake this almond bread with wheat flour instead..does that mean we use the Atta or is that a wrong assumption? I’m a beginner, so forgive me for the lame question. I want to bake this either today or tomorrow, so I hope to hear back from you by then πŸ™‚ Thanks!

    • Madhuram

      No problem Deepika. Atta/whole wheat flour does not taste good in all recipes. The taste and texture of the baked good also depends on the brand of flour you use. So you have to try it for yourself to see if you like a particular brand of atta for this recipe or any other baking recipe. Or the safest bet is to use whole wheat pastry flour. But most of the Indian store whole wheat flours (like Pillsbury, Deep, etc) are somewhat close to whole wheat pastry flour because they are milled from soft wheat. But I would’nt try the Golden Temple brand because I feel that it’s made from hard wheat.

  9. Archana Pradeep

    Yippee!!!!!!!! Amazing recipe and very easy one.. Believe me it was a great surprise for the family weekend breakfast. It was a major hit in the house.. I added almond powder instead of almond butter and also i added peanut butter which gave a crunchy taste with peanuts in between..
    Keep posting more recipes which motivates us to try and enjoy the taste..

    • Madhuram

      Thanks Archana.

  10. Isaura

    Hello, thank you for your recipes. I am interested in trying this one, but I do not eat dairy, so what would be a good substitute for the milk?
    Thanks again

    • Madhuram

      You could use any non dairy milk of your choice.

    Hi Madhu,

    I just love your site and the photo steps that lead to the recipes. I am new to your site so i have yet to try out any of your recipes. I have lot of hazelnut butter lying around nutella to be be more specific and i am planning to try out this recipe using nutella any suggestions.

    thanks and keep up the good work!! πŸ˜‰

    Hi Vandana, thanks for your compliments. I think nutella might not work in this recipe because it has a lot of sugar in it and chances are it will alter the texture of the bread. If you want to use off your nutella, then try this chocolate pizza instead. Its a great recipe.

  15. user

    Well i realized my mistake. I used baking soda instead of baking powder. πŸ˜₯ Will try again and see how it happens next time.

  16. user


    I tried the almond bread recipe as you have described exactly, but it ended up tasting veryyyyyyyyyyy bitter. I am not sure if it was the butter i used or something else. I used the Maranatha Natural Almond Butter. Any ideas why that would have happened?


    I think the bitterness is something to do with the baking powder. Was it very old or did you forget to level it off while measuring so it became excessive?

  17. Aruna

    am new to baking. being a lacto-gan, eggless recipes are great option. i found your site very interesting. being in India, i find that we just get the double action aluminium based baking powder. can you suggest substitutes for it along with it being eggless? found that lemon juice or vinegar is used to replace SAS baking powder and egg too. the question is how to balance out everything in a recipe?

    Aruna, all baking powder available for retail sale is double action baking powder only. Single acting baking powder is used only by manufactures and is not available for retail sale. That’s what I hear. So all the recipes in my blog use only double action baking powder.

  18. ju

    i came across your recipe weeks ago when trying to figure out what to bake with almond butter and no eggs… finally tried this out today and it is great! at first (after sampling the bread just out of the oven) i worried that it would taste too much like baking soda, but it is actually great– and very soft and moist. i’m not a sweet-tooth person so this was delicious with a bit of butter. next time i might throw some bran or flaxseed in there to vary the texture a bit.

    thanks madhuram for a great almond butter recipe! you probably know how few there are out there πŸ˜€

    You’re welcome Ju. Quick breads slice well and taste great usually after 12- 24 hours.

  19. Richa

    All these bread recipes are for Conv oven. I am very interested in recipes for bread machine. Would you be able to tell me how to modify these for bread machine? Also, can someone post really good vegan cinnamon raisin bread recipe for bread machine?

    Hi Richa, I don’t have a bread machine, so I don’t have recipes for the same. See if you can find something in the following link:

  20. Sonal

    Hi Madhuram,
    I am new to your website but already baked this bread. πŸ™‚ It was good but little dry. I used little less milk (whole)thinking 1.5 cup will be too much. I like to bake eggless too so will be trying lot of your recipes.

    Thanks for trying the recipe Sonal.

  21. Laksh


    Tried this recipe yesterday. I used a flatter pan and ended up with a drier bread for the 50 minutes of baking time. I also felt the sugar was less for the 2 cups of flour mentioned. Will try another time with a deeper pan or lesser baking time.

    Laksh, I’m sorry you didn’t get desirable result with the bread. If you change the pan size you have to change the baking time also accordingly. Wish you had checked the doneness using a tooth pick around 20 minutes. Also this bread is supposed to be eaten with jam, so it doesn’t need more sugar. The original recipe used peanut butter, for a modified version of PB&J sandwich.

    Spillay thank you very much for such lovely comments. You don’t owe me anything. Morever this recipe is not mine, I saw it in Food TV, I just used almond butter instead of peanut butter.

  24. Spillay

    CONGRATULATIONS on the award!! Good on you!!!

    The bread looks yummy. I have to check out the supermarket for almond butter…. (even that sounds really tasty πŸ™‚ ) I really admire the way that you are able to “invent” new recipes!! In my books – you are a genius!!

    PS: I remember I still owe you something πŸ˜‰

  25. Madhuram

    DK, as usual you are flattering me with your awesome comments. Love to hear them though!

    Roma your bread looks awesome. I will also try your version. Thank you very much for trying it immediately.

    Pritya, your welcome. If I can bake anybody can. I also started only 2 months back and slowly learning.

    Ashaji, thank you very much. Yes the bread was sweet indeed.

    Laksh, Dee try it definitely and let me know. As I keep mentioning again and again, don’t top it with almonds. You will not be able to slice it properly.

    Ranji, Divya congrats on your awards and thank you very much for passing it to me.

    Awesome! I have this jar of almond butter I bought from Akay’s influence. But I found out I did not like the taste so was wondering what to do. This is the perfect way to use it πŸ™‚ Thanks a bunch!

  31. Asha

    Catching up with all of you today and what a great looking cake waiting for me!:))

    Delightful dessert. Enjoy the award!

  32. Pritya

    Thank you Madhu…the words that describe the award truly make our day.
    Your bread pic looks so good, with all the sprinkled nute. We are sure it isnt as easy as you state it to be. Quite an art to get it right :).

  33. Roma

    Awesome bread and tips! I am going to try this one. Actually I dont get almond butter here but I can try flavoring the plain butter with almond / cinnamon / caramel or any other flavor, hopefully that should be ok.

    Thanks once again for this recipe. All your bread recipes are great!

  34. DK

    OMG! 😯 That bread is PERFECT and one of the most beautiful breads I have ever laid my eyes on! This is too good!

    And I am so honoured that you think of passing on an award to me 😳 . Thanks a bunch Madhu πŸ™‚ will chit chat away more now πŸ˜‰

  35. Madhuram

    Divya thank you very much. I also like her shows, but my husband thinks that whatever dessert she prepares is not at all healthy with so many sticks of butter. But I would advice not topping it with almonds because it made slicing the bread a bit difficult.

    Sowmya thank you very much.

  36. Madhuram

    Rupa, thank you very much for your continuous support and encouragement. It’s my husband’s idea to include step by step pictures.

    Kamala thank you. I checked with the recipe and it says 1 tablespoon only. But I really don’t remember whether it had the baking powder smell. The only thing I recollect is the tops were a bit dry. Sorry about it.

    Madhavi it’s my pleasure. I baked it on Monday night and it’s moist even now. But you have to store it properly.

    SS, thank you. Yes it’s sweet only. I bought the unsalted variety. I liked it better than the PB. This is my first time with almond better too. Glad it came out very well. But it’s very costly also when compared to PB, this jar cost me $12.

    Ranji thank you very much.

    Shri welcome to my blog. Do give it a try, it’s very moist. But I would advice not topping it with the almonds and cutting it after giving enough time to cool.

    Siri, Kumudha, thank you very much. Congrats on the award.

    Shubha thank you so much for the words of appreciation. I got the almond butter in the regular american grocery store (Giant, in my case) in the natural foods aisle. Get the unsalted one. It is full of oil, so give it a nice stir with a thick spoon after opening the jar and be careful while opening because the oil will spill.

    Mansi thank you and congrats to you too.

    Sangeeth thank you very much.

    Sunita, I started this blog seeing your blog. So I really am very happy to see your comments here.

    Hetal thanks.

    Anjali, pear butter sounds INTERESTING! Will check out your blog for that.

    Cham, Sukanya, Uma, Srivalli thank you very much guys. It tasted very very good too.

    Arundathi, that’s fine. I did not want to mislead, that’s why I mentioned about the reviews too. But many of them had written that you can either increase the quanitity of peanut butter or reducing the amount of baking soda. But my suggestion would be instead of milk you can add full cream and increase the quantitiy of PB also.

    Truphti, Richa thank you very much.
