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 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!

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.

It was simply delicious! I loved the structure: soft, spongy and a bit moist. I'm thinking about experimenting by substituting the orange with banana and add coconutpulp. What do you think? Will it work? Any tips/ suggestions?

Yum! That'll probably be okay to sub the orange with banana + coconut. It's not a huge part of the recipe, so it'll probably work out just fine. Let me know how it turns out!

It turned out pretty good. Less moist than the orange version and the taste of the banana wasn't very prominent. Next time I'll try it more ripe bananas.

Hi Nancy! Yes, riper bananas may do the trick, for flavor as well as being a little moister. :)

My bread is still in the dehydrator, but as you suggested I have pinched small pieces off as it firmed up and this is DELICIOUS ! Breakfast in the morning.

Wonderful! I think anyone will enjoy this! SO delicious! I added 1/2 c of raw sunflower seeds to increase protein ;-) I also made them lil cookies so they will travel well and be handy to just grab one or two. I made them level T size and got 36 from recipe. I also keep them in freezer to increase shelf life. I live alone, can only eat so much and need things to last longer than a few days. Thank You for sharing Your incredible artistic talent with us!

Hi just wondering if you have any recipe for Ginger bread man (RAW) version. I used to love eating them but now being raw not sure how to make it. I saw ginger bread man cookie mold and ever since I am so wanting to make something like that.(Maybe in my dehydrator?) If you have a recipe like that I would love to try!
With love and thanks from Suzy.Diamante.

I made this yesterday and brought a loaf to work. Even my most "anti raw" colleagues appreciated this bread, and several asked for recipes as well as the common question, "can we make it in an oven?" I love that I can make it and serve it in one afternoon/evening. Thanks and well done!

This sweet bread is AMAZING! I just finished my third slice with some raw cheese, avocado, sun tried tomatoes and sprouts. I love the softness and sweetness of this bread. Absolutely fantastic! You can see two slices of the bread in the picture, the other two bits are your crackers! ;)
