our new favorite cheesy bread recipe

by purelytwins

Hello friends,

Do you ever relive family memories? Do you like recreating old family favorite recipes into something a little healthier? We sure do.

We grew up with making recipes from the Pillsbury Complete Book of Baking (published in 1993). Our second oldest sister got the book and she started baking. She would invite us in to taste and sample her yummy treats. She was very talented. It was through her and her love for baking that we began our baking journey.  And we’ve never looked back.

There were a few family favorites that we would make over and over again… pumpkin bars, sweet cinnamon quick bread and cookies ‘n cream cake (mmm we need to recreate that one). And there were a few bread recipes that we always enjoyed. Particularly a herbed oatmeal pan bread that was always a lovely addition to our dinners.  These rolls were topped with this herb butter parmesan cheese, so delicious.

Now what we have today does not look anything like that recipe but it’s our updated current herb bread love. We think you will like this updated version as it’s made from our go-to 3 ingredient bread.

The funny thing is we aren’t bread bakers. We aren’t good with yeast. Luckily, these are yeast-free.  This recipe is quick, easy and healthy. Pretty darn tasty too!

Let’s get to bread baking… purely twins way 😉

Grain-free goat cheese herb bread recipe.

We took our beloved plantain bread up a notch with adding in delicious goat cheese highlighted with delicate flavor of herbs.

Obviously, it would make a great addition to any lunch. Pair with a lovely green salad for a nice healthy bread option for your side.

Soft texture mixed in with bold flavors of herbs and goat cheese.  This is really a delicious bread, don’t let the look fool you. It smells wonderful.

No yeast required either which means it is ready in under 20 minutes.

A great finger food to serve as an appetizer at a party or family dinner. Perfect to dip in warm pizza sauce to create homemade pizza breadsticks!  That should go over well with the whole family.

Here is the recipe of how we made this amazing goat cheese herb plantain bread.

If you are in need of a quick, delicious bread recipe to serve with your next gathering make this and you will win the crowd over.

And to keep it dairy-free just top with your favorite dairy-free cheese. And if you are not a goat cheese fan (shame on you, just kidding) feel free to use sheep or cow’s milk cheese. Just make sure to get high quality cheese. Grass-fed would be best.

I love re-hauling old recipes that my family makes, there’s always a healthy alternative that sometimes makes the recipe taste even better. I have recipes that use the sweetened condensed milk and I sub in canned coconut milk instead. Works surprising well

Family memories. How I adore them. I feel like if I ever tried to re-create them, I would just get sad though – so I just try to make new ones. That being said, that doesn’t mean I don’t constantly think back to when my dad, siblings and I used to make donuts in our kitchen! They were soooo sooo sooo good but of course, there were lots and lots of fights during the whole baking process, LOL! Ohhhhh good memories 😉

You gals should try to tell your plantain bread on the market as a sustainable grain-free bread. Just a thought…

purelytwins April 1, 2014 - 9:22 pm
