Nutrition Facts

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.

Tastes pretty good so far, drying it some more to hopefully reach a crackerish consistency.

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.

Hi Shawn,

It is easy and hard to screw up.

I usually store mine in fridge in a ziploc bag. I've never frozen it, but I am sure it would freeze well - thaw in fridge before using.

Also, if it gets a bit damp in fridge, 20 mins in dehydrator will take chill off - almost like fresh again

I love this onion bread, and although the house does smell like onions for awhile, it only last that way a bit and you get to enjoy the bread for a lot longer. I have made this bread for years now, but I do add Agave to mine. I have tried other raw breads but always come back to this one.

I hate to be a naysayer, as I went in with such high hopes. My mom's local greens restaurant makes a version that she loves, but I can't eat because it includes sprouted wheat. I was really disappointed in this recipe. Not only did this stuff make my house stink unbearably of armpits, it is horribly bitter. I have enjoyed other recipes from this site, and will continue to do so, but I would caution anyone against this one.

I did! I bought several huge gorgeous ones from our Co-op here. It does occur to me that they might have been slightly past their prime, as I find that sweeties go off much faster than Spanish onions. I usually don't buy them at all after fall, but this looked so tasty. I did find that freezing the bread made it much less bitter. I had it with some "egg salad" the other day, and it was quite nice. And my laundry room now smells like a toasted everything bagel, so that isn't entirely bad. :-) Thanks for all you do!

Onion bread has been one of my raw staples. Dehydrating is a little rough on my husband for the first few hours, it makes his eyes water...opps. But he is good about it. I use it for my sandwiches, I love the flavor and texture. I was glad to find the recipe here since I have kept it tucked on a piece of paper...somewhere...and have to hunt for it every couple weeks to make my next batch.

Raw onion bread recipe

It made 2 sheets for me, ( divided each sheet into 4 for a total of 8 "wraps". When I calculated the calories I came up with 303 calories for each one. (based on calories for 3 large onions(180 c.), 1 c. flaxseed (897 cal), 1 c. sunflower seeds (818 cal), 1/3 cup of olive oil (500 c.), and 1 tbsp lite soy sauce (29 calories).

I have the same dehydrator and love it.

Hi Santino,

You could omit it completely. Also, you could also try Braggs Liquid Aminos? Can't remember if they have soy sauce or not.

But again, you could leave it out completely and that would be fine

Made last night and had for lunch today. Best savory bread substitute I've had since going gluten free years ago. This will be a staple recipe for me, whether made into wraps, as bread or crisped as crackers. I can't use soy, so coconut aminos worked perfectly in place of the soy sauce. Recipe is an amazing "keeper"!

I have been making this bread for several years. I have tried several different kinds of raw bread/crackers, but I always come back to this one. It is my favorite. My husband will say "you are making onion bread" because when he comes in after it begins to dehydrate, it does burn his eyes a bit for awhile. But he seems very proud of it to others. It's good, worth the effort.

Raw onion bread recipe

Fantastic! As a very new appreciator of raw diet and dehydrators, this recipe resulted in am amazing treat! After 30 days on AIP [Autoimmune Protocol Diet] with restrictions on all nuts and grains, this was a lovey experience being able to eat something bready and( with the extra I kept in the dehydrator) crackery! My only difficulty as a newbie to this was not having your suggestions for how thick to spread it on the parchment paper.

But amazing flavour and as I cannot do soy, I used cocunut aminos and a bit of pink himilayan salt which were a super substitute. Also added some fresh rosemary as its everywhere and darn it tates great! Thanks for sharing this recipe. I think its going to become a staple.

I must have done something wrong because mine did not turn out so well. Perhaps my onions weren't sweet enough. The end result was far, far too bitter and 'oniony'. It tasted like eating straight onion powder- so I went with that and ground it up! I've been sprinkling it on everything and eating it this way is delicious! Thank you for the recipe, I'll try it again when I find some sweeter onions.

Hi Kimmy - that is a tough one. To be honest, I would worry about it going bad because there will still be moisture in there.  You might have more like taking crackers with you instead of breads.

First try w/raw foods & new dehydrator. But my onion bread is a lighter color. Too much onion? I think it's a bit too thick too. Haven't tasted it yet. How should I store it? Can I or must it be eaten right away?

Thank you for sharing this low calorie version of raw onion bread. I've made a recipe similar to this and I think that the smell of onions is more like the smell of onions cooking (even though my dehydrator is set to 115 degrees) rather than raw onions. The one difference in my recipe is that I thinly slice the onions rather than processing them. I find that my bread has a bitter taste when I process or shred the onions.

If you're looking for some variations you can add up to one tablespoon herbs such as basil, Italian seasoning, Herbs de Provence, rosemary and garlic ... This also helps if you or someone in your family doesn't like the smell of onion bread in the dehydrator.

One last tip - I place my dehydrator in the garage. That does help with any unwanted odor and yet it's in a protected place.

Hi there, just made this onion bread receipe too. And it is totally deliscious and I made it in a NORMAL OVEN on the hot air setting. The lowest setting on my oven is 50 degrees, but it is possible to turn on the oven and stop turning the nob to a point before the 50 degree mark. And then I used an oven temperature thermometer to check the heat never got over 42 degrees. Worked totally fine. Spread the onion 'dough' onto normal baking paper on top of a normal baking tray, possible a bit thinner than the bread in your photo, but then transferred the baking paper onto a baking rack to let air get closer to the 'dough'. With this same idea in mind, I also punched a few small holes in through the dough and baking paper. Not sure it made a difference. But the bread turned out deliscious. Had mine rolled up with spinach, avocado, tomatoslices and a couple of twists of a pepper-chili mix I have in my peper grinder. And then I circummed to a tiny bit of mayo too. It was deliscious. The receipe I used had similar ingredients and ratios but called for longer in the oven. So my bread were ready after about 18 hours at 42 degrees, turned my oven off at night time. Maybe I can make them quicker next time by following the dehydration process you suggest here. Do you have a raw food alternative to the mayo component?

Wow, sounds complicated but a great alternative since your oven seems to do well at low temps. (most ovens do not really go below 100, in my experience).

Thank you for sharing your experiences Karen. They make this site a better resource for all.

I'm curious why I can't use my BlendTec to make this...it works for everything else that calls for a food processor...

Because the onions would get liquified and you'd lose a lot of the texture that makes this recipe nice

Hey Laura-Jane, I don't have a dehydrator as yet and have just started a raw foods diet. Are there any other alternatives - for example, could I just use my oven at a low temperature instead? Suggestions would be really good as I don't have £125 to spend on a dehydrator right now. Many thanks. :)

No, sorry. Won't work in an oven. Best to not try to make dehydrated recipes until you have a dehydrator.

If I dehydrate something with a strong smell like this onion bread with other things dehydrating in other trays, would my cookies taste like onion, for example?

Yes, they would. It's best to dehydrate savory in one batch and sweet in a separate batch to avoid flavors combining in your D

I can't wait to try this! I wonder if a bowl of white vinegar next to the dehydrator would help with the smell. If it works, I'll let you know. Love all the great ideas!

Sorry for blowing up your wall with my comments but, the onion bread came out super tasty! (despite the mushyness of the onion), I am trying to think of what yummy filling I can create to make a sandwitch, any suggestions? Thanks!!! :)

haha - funny thing is that, I had made that EXACT filling (along with some garlic yummy spread, and threw in some fresh basil too) so funny, great minds think alike!!! So, I used your garlic dressing recipe and grounded up some brazil nuts with it, it came out like a thick spread... super yummy!!!

Sorry - wrote that all crazy... haha. It actually doesn't taste bad at all, I did a bit of a taste test (while still dehydrating, 2 hours now...) it will probably end up taking a little longer than if I had actually thoroughly read what you wrote the first time .... my guess though, it will take longer...you think?

It makes 6 small wrap shells - each person could probably eat two per meal. So that's 3 servings

Wow! This was soooo delicious. I want to make more, but I am trying to find a place to put the dehydrator so the place won't smell like onions! I don't mind, but my husband does. What is the best way to store these and how long do they keep in the fridge? I wanted to make some for next weekend to take and introduce my relatives to some yummy raw foods! I can't wait to try some of your recipes. shalom, Raine

Hi Raine, I store them in a ziplock bag in the fridge. It's hard to avoid the onion smell. Some people dehydrate in the garage. Good luck!

I made this recipe for the first time tonight. The only change I made was that I added about 2 tbsp of honey because my onions weren't very sweet. I have my dehydrator plugged in outside on my porch. I think the smell is so strong that no critters will come near it! I hope it's beautiful and delicious in the morning.
Thanks, Laura-Jane.

You are welcome. I hoped they turned out well. What a great idea to put your dehydrator outside! Funnily enough, I've never thought of that before. In the case of these onion crackers, I think it's a great idea.

PS: Next time try something else sweet (agave nectar, maple syrup, dates etc) instead of honey because honey does not dehydrate at raw temperatures

Hi Laura-Jane,

Thank you for sharing this recipe! I've been wanting to try dehydrating onions for a while, but I've heard it will virtually impregnate my dehydrator and home with the scent of onions.

Any truth to this in your experience?

Thanks,
Aimme
