Recipe Directions

  • 1. Place the sunflower seeds in your food processor and process into a fine meal. Take out of food processor and set aside.  (You do not need to wash your food processor yet.)
  • 2. Peel onions, place in empty food processor and process in your food processor until small but not mushy. (Do not use a high-speed blender.)
  • 3. Place onions in a large mixing bowl. Add everything else, including the ground sunflower seeds. Mix with a spoon. If it's dry and won't mix, you can add a small splash of water (ex. 1 tbsp), but I doubt you'll need to add any water at all.
  • 4. Spread onto dehydrator trays. Use parchment paper (not wax paper because it'll melt and stick!!!) or teflex sheets as a base. This raw onion bread recipe makes three Excalibur trays.
  • 5. Dehydrate for 1 hour at 120 degrees, then reduce to 105 degrees and dry for another 6 hours. Once the bread starts drying out and holding together, score them with a knife into the size that you'd like.
  • 6. At some point you'll want to flip them over, remove the parchment paper and finish dehydrating them, maybe for another 4 hours or so. I like them to be a bit chewy. Just try nibbling on this raw onion bread recipe and see whether you want it crispier. Dehydrating times can vary greatly, so trust YOUR judgment.
  • 7. Enjoy this raw onion bread recipe!

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

I first tasted raw onion bread at a tiny raw food restaurant. I immediately went home and started searching online for a raw onion bread recipe that tasted just as good!

Well, nothing compares with having raw onion bread made by someone else and served to you with a smile, but...second best is making this raw onion bread recipe for yourself at home!

I had never made raw crackers or raw bread that included olive oil, but the addition of olive oil makes this raw onion bread recipe so easy to spread! This recipe makes enough for three sheets of onion bread.

I like to dehydrate this raw onion bread recipe until it's basically dry but still pliable/bendable.

Man, don't know if any onion bread will be left before its finished in the dehydrator!!! I had a taste test and keep going back every now and then to steal more ! When warm it tastes like crumbed onion rings, mmmmmm
Stinking awesome!

Any suggestions for a substitute for the ground flax seeds?
I am in menopause and stay away from flax!

Would love to try this recipe! What do you think about using chia seeds instead?

Thanks!

Hi Lori, you can use coconut oil instead of olive oil in this recipe I suppose, although I've never done it. You could possibly use ground chia instead of the flax, BUT it won't work out the same.... it might work, but basically you will be inventing a different recipe once you start doing all these substitutions :)

I make this each year for passover to serve instead of matzah -- always a huge hit. But I have to say, handling all the raw onions KILLS me and has me crying my eyes out through the whole process. Here's a photo of how I beat the pain this year! :)

I loved these crackers! They are so good, either on their own as a snack or with a meal to add a different texture. They didn't last very long although I was able to keep them around for about 4 days. What incredible onion flavor!

I stored them uncovered in the fridge and they got a little crisper, which was nice. But they are good just any way they are served. Another big hit with my husband.

I LOVE this recipe! I've experimented with using it as a base for other bread types too, it's by far my favorite raw bread. I was wondering if you could process the flax a little or use flax meal. I've read that it's really hard for our digestive system to break down whole flax seeds... Thanks for your input!!

Glad you love the recipe, Elizabeth! And absolutely, flax meal or processing is totally fine!

I've made a few of your recipes, and I love that they're usually pretty simple, with excellent recipe layout and instruction, and they always come out great. I thought this would be a good recipe to make at night, so that it's close to ready in the morning, but ........ silly me!! .... I didn't consider how the magnificent aroma of this bread will drive me CRAZY while I try to sleep. It smells great. I can't wait to have it as a wrap with some smashed avocado, shredded carrot, julienned yellow pepper, shredded baby spinach leaves, and marinated mushrooms for my lunch tomorrow. Probably dinner, too.
Thanks for the great things you share with us.

Hi,
I've tried to find and research 'sweet onions'. There's no such thing at my supermarket and not really any info online to tell me what they are.... this bread looks lovely and I really want to give it a go! Is there anything else I can use? Bottoms of a leek possibly?
Thanks :)

Maybe try yellow onions Michaela! Any onion that has a mild flavor.

What would be so terrible about using regular white onions? And what are sweet onions? Could I use red onions? Cheers.

Hi Lyn,

In short, the taste!!! Sweet onions have a very mild oniony flavor. Red and regular white onions have too strong of an oniony taste.

Tastes pretty good so far, drying it some more to hopefully reach a crackerish consistency.
I made this and some corn/kale chips at the same time and the house smelled great!

Hello! I'm just after a raw bread/ wraps/ crackers recipe that I can use as a toast substitute that doesn't have onions (or tomatoes/ peppers) in it. I'm just not super up for onions and veges first thing in the morning, but am really missing my morning Vogels (this is a NZ thing - iconic delicious seedy bread). I know onions get used a lot in your and Ani Phyo's recipes. Is this because they give a good taste? Is there anything more neutral that I can substitute?
Thank you so much.
