Is it time to make that sweet, homemade bread you love while supporting balance and wellness in your body? If the answer is yes, we got you covered, and it is easier than you might think.

If you want to know how to incorporate CBD into your bread recipes, this simple guide to CBD bread will show you how.

Why Add CBD Into Your Bread Recipe?

Infusing hemp-derived CBD into food favorites like homemade bread is a tasty and fun way to support balance in your body.

CBD oil is one of the most highly sought after wellness products today, and for good reason. As a great source of CBD, hemp-derived CBD oil helps the body run at its best. CBD, or cannabidiol, is an all-natural compound found in hemp that positively influences the body’s endocannabinoid system. This major regulatory network helps a long list of functions stay balanced.

When you munch down on CBD bread, the CBD and other beneficial compounds found in CBD oil are absorbed through the digestive system and transported throughout the body. CBD is then able to interact with cannabinoid receptors throughout the body to stimulate the endocannabinoid system, triggering a host of natural beneficial effects and a greater sense of homeostasis.

Plus, because hemp-derived CBD oil is non-psychoactive, the gift of baking and enjoying homemade CBD bread can be shared by the whole family.

What Types of CBD Products are Best for Making Homemade CBD Bread?

When it comes to choosing the right type of CBD product to use in your CBD bread, there are options. From full-spectrum hemp oil to CBD isolate, finding the right fit does not need to be complicated.

If you are looking for a wider range of benefits, full-spectrum hemp oil products like our Real Scientific Hemp Oil® (RSHO®) CBD Oil Liquids offer all the same nutrients, cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and more that is found in the natural hemp plant. These liquids are made by combining pure CBD oil, which naturally has a viscous consistency, with nutritious medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil. Try the RSHO® Gold Label CBD Oil Liquid, which has been purified for a more refined flavor. These easy-to-pour and easy-to-measure CBD liquids can be blended into a wide range of foods or even beverages.

If you are searching for a way to harness the power of CBD alone, CBD isolate-based products are formulated with 99% pure CBD, and do not contain any of the other cannabinoids or terpenes found in hemp. RSHO® CBD Isolate is a 99% pure CBD powder that can be used to infuse nearly any food or beverage with CBD. This CBD powder is also both taste- and odor-less, so it blends in well with recipes.

If you like the idea of CBD isolate, but would rather bake your CBD bread with liquid, RSHO-X™ combines CBD isolate with MCT oil derived from wholesome coconut oil. RSHO-X™ also has a naturally-mild flavor that won’t compete with the bread’s taste.

As you make your own CBD bread, keep in mind that some of the CBD may degrade during baking. CBD can start to break down when cooking at high temperatures. However, in some cases, the use of minimal heat will not negatively impact your bread’s CBD concentration. If you’re worried about losing some CBD concentration during baking, another option is to make CBD-infused butter and use it to top your favorite bread.

CBD banana bread recipe ingredients:

  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 unpeeled bananas)
  • 3 tablespoons apricot jam or orange marmalade (optional)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour (gluten-free flour optional)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons of RSHO® CBD Liquid or 20mg of RSHO® CBD isolate

Instructions on how to make CBD banana bread:

  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F. While the oven heats, lightly grease a 9″ x 5″ loaf pan.
  2. Combine the butter, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl, beat until smooth.
  3. Add in the mashed bananas, jam (optional), honey, and eggs, and beat again until smooth.
  4. Add in the flour, then walnuts (optional), and finally the RSHO® Liquid or CBD isolate and stir until smooth. Spoon the batter into the prepared loaf pan, smooth the top, and then let the mixture rest at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  5. Bake the CBD banana bread for 45 minutes, and then briefly remove the pan from the oven so that you can carefully lay a piece of aluminum foil across the top to prevent over-browning.
  6. Bake for an additional 25 minutes.
  7. Remove the bread from the oven. A long toothpick or cake tester inserted into the center should come out clean, with a few wet crumbs clinging to it. The tester shouldn’t show any sign of uncooked batter. If it does, bake the bread an additional 5 minutes, or until it tests done.
  8. Allow the bread to cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Then, remove the CBD bread from pan and cool it completely on a rack.
