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.

In terms of onion measurements, here I call for 3 massive sweet white onions. This is about 2.5 pounds or about 5 cups chopped.

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

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!

Everyone commented on how yummy the house smelled while these were in the dehydrator so it's definitely well worth it.

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

Lol, yes, there is truth to that!!! Except the smell will go away eventually. But yeah, you have been warned!

It's worth it though.

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
