So we’ve all heard about Trim Healthy Mama’s “Nuke Queen’s Awesome Bread” (for which you can find the recipe here). It took over the main THM Facebook group for weeks! People kept asking me if I’d tested it with my baking mix recipe. Little did they know that I had been working on a similar recipe for months. I kept trying and failing, so I abandoned the effort for awhile. However, everyone’s questions prompted me to pick up the project again, and several tries later I finally managed to come up with a result that met my expectations! This versatile bread uses my baking mix (although I’ve provided a substitution suggestion for THM Baking Blend in the “Notes” section of the recipe) and can be used in any THM fuel setting.
You guys know that I try not to set unrealistic expectations with my recipes. I don’t pretend that cooked radishes taste exactly like potatoes. However, radishes are good just as they are – as radishes. Same with this bread. It’s not fluffy white bread made with glutinous flour. However, it’s good, and I enjoy it a lot. If you decide to give it a try, I hope you will enjoy it too!
I love to toast this bread and use it to sop up the yolk from my “dippy eggs”, make a grilled cheese sandwich, top it with peanut butter and strawberry jam…the options are endless!
I love the fact that this bread is so full of protein! It’s very filling.
Here you see a Fuel Pull PB&J. Briana’s Basic Bread + peanut butter made with defatted peanut flour + mashed up strawberries (because this strawberry freezer jam recipe wasn’t a thing yet when I perfected this recipe a few months ago) = PB&J awesomeness!
One of my childhood favorites was toast with peanut butter and chocolate chips. I can still have that! How cool is that?! Briana’s Basic Bread (toasted) + peanut butter + sugar free chocolate chips = nostalgic yumminess. And, of course, my ever-present cup of hot Oolong tea.
Below is a picture of how I rigged up my parchment paper in my bread pan. Fat makes egg whites deflate, so I didn’t want to grease the pan. Neither did I want to use a bunch of parchment paper, so I just cut a strip long enough to cover both long sides and the bottom of my pan. The bread will stick to the short sides, but you can just use a sharp knife to cut it away from the pan. Or you could just use more parchment paper…(I know, I know, I do things a little differently some times…).
I have not tried microwaving this bread, and I honestly have no desire to do so. In my experience, baked goods often have a much nicer texture than microwaved ones.
As always, be sure to check out the “Notes” section of the recipe for answers to frequently asked questions. You can also scroll down below the recipe to the “Suggested products” section to find links to the products I use.

My friend Judy from Wonderfully Made and Dearly Loved also has a Fuel Pull bread recipe, which you can see here. Hers calls for THM Baking Blend, so if you have some of that on hand, give Judy’s recipe a try! (I have substitution suggestions in the Notes section of my recipe below for using THM Baking Blend in place of my baking mix, but I have not actually tested my recipe with THM Baking Blend.) Judy has a lot of other great recipes on her site as well, like this Blueberry Cheesecake Bread Pudding that uses her bread recipe (I bet it would work with my bread recipe as well, so you should totally check it out because it sounds amazing!).Print
