White Bean Bread

Yummy. I looked around to try and find a recipe for bread with beans in it. I can't remember what inspired me to do that, maybe I thought it would be less PP. I was wrong about that, but it is so worth it. I found this recipe for bread with pinto beans in it and altered it a bit. Here is what I came up with:

White Bean Bread

Looking for a homemade bread that is naturally high in fiber and protein? Well, this is it! Perfect as a side for soup or used to make healthier croutons.

    1 15.5 oz. can of Cannellini Beans 1 cup skim milk 1 tsp vanilla extract 1 tsp ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp ground ginger 2 tbsp sugar 2 tbsp melted margarine 2 cups all purpose flour 1/3 cup wheat germ 1/3 cup oat bran or wheat bran 1/3 cup flax meal 1 tbsp Vital Wheat Gluten 2 tsp bakers yeast


Drain and rinse beans. Blend beans and milk together. Add all ingredients into your bread maker in the order recommended by your manufacturer. Set on white bread 1 1/2 lb. loaf. Wait for it to be done and enjoy. Makes 16 servings, 3 PP per slice. 
It didn't rise too well, but it sure is tasty!
