Recipe Directions

  • 1. Add all ingredients to food processor EXCEPT RAISINS, PSYLLIUM HUSK AND FLAXSEED MEAL. Process very well.
  • 2. Add raisins. Pulse again until raisins are well distributed but raisins still looked like raisins :)
  • 3. Transfer mixture to a bowl. Add psyllium husk and flaxseed meal. Stir well.
  • 4. Form into two small loaves.
  • 5. Dehydrate for 1 hour on high - then reduce to 110 degrees for another few hours (perhaps 5). These actually dehydrate pretty fast! You can nibble them as they firm up. Pull out when you want to eat them - I like them still a bit moist inside.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Since I recently discovered the beauty of psyllium husk, which allows you to dehydrate soft, moist raw breads, I have been loving this! It tastes almost exactly like a raw version of manna bread - if you've ever had that before :) But basically, it tastes like a nice spicy orange flavoured loaf of sweet bread - kind of like cinnamon raisin bread.

This raw sweet bread is delicious on its own, like a little slice of hearty sweet cake. Or served with a nice sweet cashew spread (heavenly!) or spread with your favorite sweetener or nut butter (like honey/agave nectar or almond butter). Mmm!

The psyllium husk is what makes this recipe moist and soft and light - like bread. DO NOT MAKE THIS RAW SWEET BREAD RECIPE UNLESS YOU HAVE PSYLLIUM HUSK. Sorry for yelling but I am serious :)

This picture shows one small loaf chopped up into small slices of sweet bread. Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Store them as loaves - then slice as needed before eating :)

Hi Ms Rawtarian,
thank you for the suggestion of psyllium husks - I have made both savoury and sweet "breads" with the psyllium/flaxseed combo.
I am curious to know more about why and what the effect is. The psyllium seems to dry out the mix faster than other dehydrations I have done. It has solved for me the problem of how to get more "nothing" into bread. Without brewers yeast and/or wheat, it seemed that the mixes I used to make dehydrated goodies crackers were very dense, if still very tasty. How does one get the kind of air that can inflate and expand bread and cake into delicate lightnesses, into gluten free goodies?
I look forward to explore more of your recipes, and have been telling friends about them.
good and tasty wishes

Hi. Thank you so much for all of your beautiful recipes!! They're so simple and flavoursome, and my sweet-toothed partner loves all of the treats I've been uncooking for him. I've recently found out that I'm allergic to pecans. Do you have any suggestions for an alternative in this recipe? Thanks in advance.

Hi there! Could I use chia instead of flax in this recipe? Flax makes my tummy yucky... Chia I can handle right well. Just ordered my dehydrator this morning. Yay!!

Hi Elizabeth, congrats on your new dehydrator! I haven't made this with chia seeds myself, so I am hesitant to say, "go for it!" But cutting the flax in half and adding the rest in ground chia seeds should probably be okay. Hope this helps somewhat!

I remember that feeling! Use it as a nice motivator for you. What can you do to treat yourself with it at a later date? Make it a goal.

And you don't have to get an excalibur, you can get a cheaper one.

Best dehydrator is 9-tray excalibur, hands down. But... it is expensive! http://tinyurl.com/ah6o3qt

You can also get a Vegikiln - they are cheaper, white, not as "reputable" but they get the job done: http://tinyurl.com/avb59e3

Please help, I am lost. I am new to raw and fell in love with this recipe. I went looking for the ingredient psyllium husk powder, but all I am able to find is something that is used to help your colon. Would you please send me a link where I might purchase this product. I want to get it right. I know I must sound like a dummy, not to know this stuff.

Thank-you for helping me.

We use the colon stuff...we just whip it through a coffee grinder to make the powder.

Hi Suzie, generally you can find it at health food stores. Here's a link to some as you requested: http://tinyurl.com/b4vvxq4 it's not too expensive.

New to raw and dehydrating, so here's a silly question.... where is the print button for this recipe? And, psysillium husks... is it a powder? Many thanks!
