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!

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.

Hi Justine! Try apples instead of onions :) It's not so much about the taste, but the wetness and texture

Hi Amber,

Definitely freezeable once dehydrated. (To defrost, defrost in fridge, then ideally pop in dehydrator for another hour or so to warm up and get rid of any excess moisture)

Hi, I haven't yet tried the onion bread, but I'm looking forward to it. It sounds quite easy! How long does the bread last and how best to store it? Can it be kept frozen? I like to make big batches as I don't often find myself with lots of time to spend in the kitchen unfortunately! Thanks!

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 saw online that yo can do beef jerky in an oven with the door cracked on a low heat. Maybe it could save heating the house too ; )
