Saturday Beefcake: From the Archives ~ Complex Carbohydrates

Although summer will not conclude until the advent of the Autumnal Equinox, it is hurricane season, which, among other things heralds the advent of fall with its battling fronts, almost a metaphor for the upcoming American Football season. While the merits of football can be debated, football players themselves have what it takes to fulfill a fantasy or two. Indulging in playing football or fulfilling a fantasy requires fuel and what better fuel than complex carbohydrates and protein. Therefore, behold the recipe for Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Bread as well as two young athletes to motivate its creation and a fantasy or two necessitating fulfillment.

Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Bread

2 cups whole wheat flour
4 tsps baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsps brown sugar
1 cup peanut butter (any style)
1 1/2 cups milk
2 eggs
1 cup sultanas

1. mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar
2. add peanut butter, mix with fork until the mixture looks like cornmeal
3. add the milk and eggs, stir until thoroughly mixed
4. lightly grease a loaf pan with peanut or almond oil
5. oven should be at 350F and bake for about 50 minutes

Gives new meaning to the words, touch and down.
