Hot Pepper Bread Recipe

How to Make Homemade Chili Pepper Bread with a Spicy Kick

Spice up your taste buds with our mouthwatering chili pepper bread recipe.  Perfectly balanced between fiery heat and a touch of sweetness, this homemade bread is a culinary adventure waiting to be savored.  Try our spicy bread today!

Spicy Bread Recipe

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that we were swimming in chili peppers.  But can you believe my husband came home with three additional grocery bags of peppers?  I gave away two bags to friends; they didn't take as many as I'd hoped for, but it helped alleviate our pepper abundance.  

I couldn't resist experimenting in the kitchen.  I've come up with so many recipes for chili peppers that I might assemble them into a collection soon.  I've thrown them into my morning eggs, added them to our chili, and then the idea hit me: a spicy cornbread recipe.  

Sounded delicious to me, how about you?  When I contemplated a bread recipe, I thought, "Why reinvent the wheel when I've already created some fantastic recipes?"  So, I quickly changed course and decided to adapt the oat bread recipes I developed a while back.

The results?  

Absolutely delightful!  This bread strikes the perfect balance between a bit of spice and a touch of sweetness, making it a fantastic addition to any meal.  Here's how you can craft your own spicy bread recipe: 

Spicy Bread


  1. 2 cups of oat flour (already made, you can reference our oat bread recipe for more information)
  2. 1 1/2 cups gluten free oats
  3. 2 t baking powder
  4. 1/2 t baking soda
  5. 1 T Psyllium husk powder 
  6. 1/2 t salt
  7. 3/4 c applesauce
  8. 1 c pureed hot peppers (wash and place into processor including seeds)
  9. 3/4 c almond milk
  10. 2 eggs
  11. 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  12. 1/4 cup honey

  1. If you have not already made your oat flour, follow directions on our oat bread recipe 
  2. Mix all dry ingredients together, I did use my mixer for the bread because my past experience has taught me bread can be finicky  
  3. Add in milk & applesauce, mix
  4. Add eggs, vegetable oil, honey, and finally our hot peppers, mix well
  5. Pour into greased bread pans, this recipe made 2 small loaves of bread
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes
  7. You can drizzle additional honey over the top of your bread while warm if you wish
  8. Enjoy!

Note: I used a combination of peppers, red chili peppers, Hungarian peppers, and green chili peppers.  You can use peppers you have on hand.

After these peppers were pureed, it equaled one cup

I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I added the hot peppers to this recipe, especially since I didn't bother seeding the peppers.  I threw everything into the food processor and thought, "This will be an adventure."  As you may know if you've been following our recipes, I'm an untrained, no-fuss rookie who goes with the flow 100% of the time.  

You ight wonder why I share my recipes if I just wing it.  Well, my husband is the taste tester, who gives me a thumbs up, and that's my signal to share.  If I get that dreaded thumbs down, I work quickly to fix my mistakes.    

The other reason I share is that I must follow a gluten-free diet due to allergies.  When I started on this journey, it was a struggle to find gluten-free recipes, so I hope I can offer an easier path for those who need to live a gluten free lifestyle.  It would have been a great help for me back then.  I also don't use fancy ingredients; I cook with things that are typically found in most American kitchens.

Let us know what you think.  I'm curious if anyone else would be daring enough to make a hot pepper bread, or if I'm the only one who immediately thought of bread when my fridge was overflowing with peppers.  Enjoy your weekend!

  1. This recipe looks delicious, Cara! One of my sisters also had a bumper crop of peppers this year so I am super excited to send this post to them. They're always looking for fun ways to use their peppers up too. I can't wait to find a special soup or chili to go with these. They sound amazing! Hugs, CoCo

    1. Thank you CoCo! I hope you and your family enjoys this recipe, I shared it with my mom, and she said wow! She loved the sweet and spicy bread. I had not experimented much with peppers before, but I am getting more acquainted with them, and have found I want them at every meal now. I have been saving seeds, and I am kind of excited to try a few plants next spring. The bread was yummy with the chili I made, and I added the peppers to our chili as well.

  2. Sounds delicious, Cara. I'm so glad you found a way to use your peppers!

    1. Thank you Ann! I am still working on a bag, but it has been so much fun creating new recipes I doubt I would have tried had the peppers not shown up when they did. Isn't it funny how life happens, and you just have things fall into your lap with new challenges? :)
