Recipe Directions

  • 1. Shred chopped and cored apples in a food processor with a grating attachment (or by hand). (Do not bother peeling the apples.) Place shredded apples into a huge bowl and set aside.
  • 2. Process almonds in an empty food processor. Process into a fine meal.
  • 3. Add dates, cinnamon and salt to nuts in food processor and process again until well mixed.
  • 4. Remove mixture from food processor and add it to the big bowl that contains the shredded apples. Combine with spoon or hands. (Mixture will appear dry but will get moist as you mix. Do not add any extra liquids.)
  • 5. Stir psyllium husk in by hand until well-combined.
  • 6. Form into 8-10 small loaves. Place on parchment paper.
  • 7. Dehydrate on high for one hour. Reduce to 110 degrees for another five hours or until desired consistency is reached.
  • 8. Store in refrigerator.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

This recipe isn't too sweet. It's subtle. It's perfect for breakfast on the go! A slice of this 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 icing. Iced slices should be stored in the fridge at all times, otherwise the icing will soften too much.

If you don't have almonds, you can use walnuts or pecans instead.

Don't eat too much of this stuff at once, since this recipe uses psyllium husk

This is so delicious. I have never used psyllium husk and it is amazing how spongy it makes the bread. I added a little fresh ground nutmeg. This reminds me of the flavor of apple pie. I love it!

I made this yesterday - it is mush bread. Not sure what happened - but - I even dehydrated it for 20 hours and still mush. Nothing crunchy. Just mush. good tasty, but mush is mush. And boy would I love to hear how anyone's turned out well - specifically, what product they are using and what weights or measurements?? Thanks so much. Committed, but not convinced!!;-)

Hi Julia,

What temperature did you have your dehydrator set? Did you "dehydrate on high for one hour" at the beginning? This helps zap a lot of the moisture at the outset.

Please delete this after reading it. It may be rubbish. I am very often wrong!

I’m just checking your conversions and wondering if you have a typing error.

You use 327g grated apples here and 372g grated zucchini in the zucchini bread. Both are 710 ml. Is one of them a slip up? I realise they are different with respect to the water content/density but the numbers are so similar that it just looks to me like it needs a check.

5 apples for me is far more than 327g. I will nevertheless commit to the weights if they really are correct.

Ignore me if I’m talking nonsense but I’m a maniac when it comes to typing errors.

Yes, it is me, Helen, as in the ‘psyllium ground’ issue some weeks ago.

I love your site.

Hi Julia
I always worry about causing offence! I’m a theoretical physicist/mathematician and generally regarded as a geek. I don’t feel I have the authority to trash lovely websites like this and should maybe stay curled up in a corner reading quantum mechanics and leaving the ‘baking’ alone.
It’s a confidence thing....

Hi ladies! Great thoughts - I think this will help you!

When I create recipes, I use "customary measurements" (ie. the American way: cups, tablespoons etc). I input the recipe in that format.

Then, my website automatically converts customary measurements into Metric measurements.

So, when I created the recipe, I wrote:
"3 cups grated apples (approx. 5 medium apples)"
which my system converted to:
"710ml / 327g grated apples (approx. 5 medium apples)"

So... yah! I'm not sure if this completely answers your question, but it helps you to understand what you're looking at, I imagine :)

ALSO: As per the distinction between:
710ml / 372g grated zucchini
and
710ml / 327g grated apples

...the zucchini weighs more than apple by 50 grams :)

Yes, I suspected you were using some kind of automatic conversion t tool but was wondering if you had checked the weights were correct. Yes, I can understand that the zucchini is heavier by 50g but, again, was wondering if you had weighed it out to check.
I guess I don’t trust these automatic/computerised things .... they are only as good as the person who programmed them...l

And, as I mentioned, 5 apples grated for me weighs far more than 327 grams. Anyway, I will stick to the weights you prescribe. InSssume my apples are an awfl lot larger than yours!

I made this like cookies with raw chocolate sauce. Amazing !!! A question: in the recipe says dehydrate in 100 degrees but is not raw anymore at that temperature. Is that ok? I used 45 degrees for more than 15 hours.

Ooh, so pretty. And you must live somewhere glorious at this time of year!!

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 eat as high raw as possible; however, I also advocate making some slight tweaks to the “rules” in order to ensure that you can stay as high raw as possible over the long-term. :)

Hi there,

This looks like a delightful recipe, and I am in love with this blog. However, I just have to comment on how you have said this is low in carbohydrates. in 1.5 cups of dates you have approximately 196 grams of carbohydrates, or 165 grams of sugar. This is quite high, particularly for those who are trying to minimise sugar intake. I think it's important to provide your readers with accurate information, so as to avoid unintentionally misleading them and their dietary choices. Don't want to sound like a drainer, but I'm sure plenty of your readers would appreciate the accuracy.
Keep up the amazing and inspiring work!

Thanks so much for your thoughtful and caring note, Leticia!

I will investigate my calculations where it comes to carb intake. More on this in future!

On my ecalibur dehydrator it only has degrees 105, 145 etc. So what is considered HIGH for one hour?
Thank you!
I will rate this recipe after I try it. It sounds DELISH.

Loving your website and all the delicious food.

Just a question regarding this and the raw apple walnut cake, how do you stop the apples turning brown and how long can you keep these for?

Thanks

Hi Amanda! You can't really keep the apples from going brown in this recipe. :)
They keep really well - in fridge for up to a week, or in freezer for up to a month. (note - defrost before using if frozen)

Try sprinkling them with a little lemon juice while pulsing!

I'd love to make this recipe and wonder if I could omit the dates? I have apples in the apartment and don't have a problem with them, however I don't don't keep dates around because I have noticed I react to the sugar. I also have maple syrup which I tolerate well and could add that as well. Would you recommend I make this recipe without the dates? I also could potentially make another bread that doesn't use dates/sweetner if you recommend another bread more than this one? Excited to make one of your breads!

Hi Henry! Do not omit the dates. They are required for both sweetness, stickiness and bulk.
You can use raisins instead, but they might not work for you because they are also very sweet.
You can also try dried apricots - they will have similar stickiness and bulk, but much less sweetness than dates.

Hope this helps!
