The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Growing up, I was raised on zucchini bread, so when my weekly CSA farm delivery came laden with zucchini I just knew I had to make a simple, satisfying raw zucchini recipe.

Much like my other breads, the addition of psyllium husk is what gives this bread its nice, moist consisency. There is no substitution for psyllium husk :)

I recently ran out of walnuts and used almonds instead of walnuts and this recipe turned out fine, so that substitution is doable. In fact, 2 cups of any nuts would work fine in this recipe as long as you process the nuts into some semblance of "flour".  This zucchini bread is very forgiving on the nut front :)

This recipe isn't too sweet. It's subtle. It's perfect for breakfast on the go! A slice of this raw zucchini bread recipe, a crisp apple and a nice tall glass of cashew milk would be a lovely breakfast!

If you want to serve it dessert style, try icing it with a white or chocolate icing. Iced slices should be stored in the fridge at all times, otherwise the icing will soften too much.

Hi Megan, it won't work the same... Do not use an oven. Ovens heat with a heating element, whereas dehydrators remove moisture. Different process :)

Hi Laura-jane,
When you say 'dehydrate on high for one hour' what temperature do you actually mean? My Sedona dehydrator goes pretty high - well beyond raw temps!

Hi Jeni!

As you know, when dehydrating raw food it is important to keep the enzymes alive by dehydrating at 105 degrees Fahrenheit (40.6 degrees Celsius) or lower.

However, I recommend turning your dehydrator on “high” (145 degrees) for about 1.5 hours when first putting food in the dehydrator, and then decreasing the temperature to 105 degrees after 1.5 hours or so.

I suggest this because the initial warmer temperature will help to take away a lot of the moisture at first, and the thinking is that it takes a while for your dehydrator to climb up to “high” and it also takes quite a while for the food to actually get to the temperature that the dehydrator air is at so it is still safe for raw foodists.

One of the best side-effects of setting your temperature higher at first is that it’s good at getting rid of the initial moisture quite quickly. Increasing the temperature at the beginning of cooking time is common practice in the raw food community. If you are not mindful about turning the heat back down after 1.5 hours, yes, your food will be heated above 105 degrees. However, this risk is warranted. That initial heat blast can really save you a lot of time and can accelerate the dehydrating process by quite a bit, even by 50% sometimes.

For me, I do strive to live a 100% raw lifestyle; however, I also make some slight tweaks to the “rules” in order to ensure that I can stay raw over the long-term. :)

Hi if you're in Europe or the UK the Andrew James rectangular dehydrator is a really good budget dehydrator. Although it is a vertical dehydrator with the fan in the base it still circulates air well. It also has a digital thermostat and timer which impressed me for such a cheap unit. Although you have to account for the hole in the centre of each tray you can still fit two largeish pizza bases or breads on each tray. I had a set budget and wanted to spend more on my blender and juicer than a dehydrator. This one was a good buy. I'm not sure if crackers and breads take longer than I a high end dehydrator because it can take up to 24 hours to really get them crisp but it's low powered and hasn't raised my electric bill so it just takes a bit more forward planning and prep.

Hi Sofia! You need a dehydrator to dehydrate :) It's a piece of specialized kitchen equipment.

General principles: 8-to-10-trays are ideal, and do not get a round dehydrator because they don't circulate air properly.

Best dehydrator is 9-tray Excalibur, hands down. But... it is expensive! http://tinyurl.com/ah6o3qt

For the budget-conscious, you can also get a Vegikiln - they are cheaper, white, not as "reputable" but they get the job done if price is a big factor. The main difference is that this one doesn't have a door that closes all the trays in (which isn't a big deal unless you want to dehydrate taller items and have to remove trays, but you can cover the holes with aluminum foil if need be): http://tinyurl.com/avb59e3 Hope this helps!

Awesome recipe. Have made about 6 batches so far and just tried making them with 2 cups of apples and 1 cup of zucchini instead of all zucchini. Absolutely wonderful and came out nearly identical in texture to the originals but with the apple-bread taste. This is absolutely the best recipe of yours we have tried. Also, I have used both psyllium husk and the psyllium husk power and have noticed absolutely no difference. Since the husk is cheaper per pound, I would say just use the husk.

Hi Uli,

Hmmm - this is a tough question to answer. They will work out in a general sense, BUT they won't be as moist without the psyllium husk. It's kind of like asking whether you can use vanilla instead of chocolate in a recipe - you CAN do it, but it won't be the same :)

Hope this helps!

PS: use ground chia seeds

I can't eat nuts (except pine nuts) due to my 5 Month old daughter having an intolerance to nuts that's coming through my breast milk if I eat them. Which was really hard when we found out, my diet being only fruit, veg, nuts and seeds, I lost 1/4 of the foods I could eat :( guess I could use pine nuts... And I do for a few recipes, but they are ridiculously expensive and rare to fine organic ones! I love your nut free recipe section... Thanks for that!!!

Gasp! Bummer, Miranda. Ugh, and pine nuts are the worst for $$$. I almost never use them for that reason :)

Glad you're finding the nut-free section useful! Are you making sure you get enough protein without the nuts? You may want to add some beans (chickpeas, kidney beans etc) to your diet to make sure you're getting lots of good nutrients in your breastmilk for your wee one :) Might be an easy addition that may be cooked but it's important for you and your babe

Hi! I wasn't a fan of the end result.. :( BUT! I tasted things along the way and the first part of the recipe (walnuts, vanilla, salt, dates, cinnamon) when all processed up together, was DELICIOUS!!!! I made it again, and stopped there. Now I'm saving just that to eat by the spoonful, or maybe over warm apples .. it reminds me of the cinnamon, butter and sugar crumble topping my mom used to put on top of the coffee cakes she use to make for us. So, although this particular recipe didn't work for me as planned, I am super thankful I tried it because I'm in LOVE with the first half of the recipe!!!! I love your site, I have your app, I recommend it to anyone who will listen...please don't stop! Peace, Carre.

Hi Mel, you ask excellent questions! In this case if you were going to add some more pineapple or apple, I would cut down on the zucchini about the same amount as what you add of other stuff, since zucc is moist too. Great question!

Hi Elizabeth, so glad you enjoyed it! I don't think I've frozen this particular recipe, but generally dehydrated breads freeze well. When you want to eat, take out of freezer and move to fridge for defrosting. You might want to also dehydrate a bit again (briefly) to warm them up if you think they need it after being in defrosted.

Hi Danielle, this particular recipe really does need the psyllium husk, so I'd recommend trying a different recipe instead.

I am knew to raw "cooking" and have just purchased my 9 tray Excalibur Dehydrator (Christmas present to me from me!). It is still in the box but I am planning to use it tomorrow and will start with zucchini bread - can you tell me if it freezes successfully?
I have tried many of your recipes and I love ALL of them - especially the great pasta meals using zucchini. I have been craving sweets and I am experimenting with your great sweet recipes as well. I am almost vegetarian.........gluten free, dairy free and almost completely raw. It is hard when you still have the other fussy eaters in the house but some of them are enjoying my food - especially my juices and green smoothies - so little by little they are joining me.

I tried this a couple weeks ago and it was fabulous! My husband and I are new to the raw diet, only about 5 months. We started eating only organic when my husband was diagnosed with a tumor early in the year. Through research we decided going raw would probably be best.

One thing we were sad about giving up was zucchini bread so we were SO happy to find this. We giggled in joy after the first bite, amazed at the moist bread-like consistency and the exact same flavor we loved from the now forbidden cooked recipe.

What was even better was realizing that instead of a oil, egg, refined sugar loaf of sadness, this raw recipe was made with all good nutritious things our bodies would be thankful for!

Thank you Rawtarian :)

Clara, I am so glad you enjoyed it! I was raised on zuc and banana bread so I know what you mean about not wanting to give it up :) It's definitely the psyllium husk that takes the credit for the moistness - a good sub for egg and oil! Sending your DH good thoughts

thank you for a brilliant recipe! This popped out at me and I went right to the store and loaded up on zucchini. I love how the loaves turned out, not too sweet, dense, and moist with bread like consistency. They are very satisfying. :)

Hi,
I don't own a dehydrator. Can this be made in the oven on a low temp?

No, sorry. That will not work. Best to wait until you have a dehydrator :)

Can you recommend a particular dehydrator? I haven't yet purchased one. Thank you for your advice in advance.

Hi Tiffany,

I recommend the 9-tray Excalibur if you can afford it.
