Peanut Butter and Jelly Bread

adapted from Have Cake Will Travel

This was a fun recipe that encapsulates the qualities of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in one glorious bread. It was a bit crumbly but would be perfect for breakfast or a quick snack.

Makes one loaf

1 cup milk
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp all fruit berry or orange jam
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups oats, finely ground
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup berries

Preheat oven to 350 (176 C) and prepare a 8x4 inche loaf pan with spray.
In a medium bowl, combine milk, vinegar, peanut butter, jam, salt and vanilla. The peanut butter may not mix smoothly but that is ok.
In a large bowl, combine oats, sugar, flour, baking powder and baking soda. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ones, being careful not to over-mix. The batter may be thick, depending on the type of peanut butter you use.
Pour into prepared pan, cover with tin foil and bake for 70 minutes (or when a toothpick comes out clean). Pull the foil off after about 40 minutes to ensure that it turns a golden brown.
Let cool in the pan for 30 minutes.

I'll have to make this for my kids. Do you come up with your own recipes? I never heard of a peanut butter and jelly bread recipe like this.
