Recipe Directions

  • 1. Grate zucchini either by hand or in a food processor with a grating attachment. (Peeling is optional depending on how tough the peel is.) Place into a huge bowl and set aside.
  • 2. Process walnuts in an empty food processor. Process into a fine meal.
  • 3. Add dates, cinnamon and vanilla 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 zucchini. Combine with spoon or hands. (Mixture will appear dry but will get moist as you mix. Do not add any liquids.)
  • 5. Stir in by hand raisins, coconut and psyllium husk.
  • 6. Form into 10-11 loaves (see picture). 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

Growing up, I was raised on zucchini bread, so when my weekly CSA farm delivery came laden with zucchini I just knew I had to make a simple, satisfying raw zucchini recipe.

Much like my other breads, the addition of psyllium husk is what gives this bread its nice, moist consisency. There is no substitution for psyllium husk :)

I recently ran out of walnuts and used almonds instead of walnuts and this recipe turned out fine, so that substitution is doable. In fact, 2 cups of any nuts would work fine in this recipe as long as you process the nuts into some semblance of "flour".  This zucchini bread is very forgiving on the nut front :)

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

Hi Sofia! You need a dehydrator to dehydrate :) It's a piece of specialized kitchen equipment.

General principles: 8-to-10-trays are ideal, and do not get a round dehydrator because they don't circulate air properly.

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

For the budget-conscious, you can also get a Vegikiln - they are cheaper, white, not as "reputable" but they get the job done if price is a big factor. The main difference is that this one doesn't have a door that closes all the trays in (which isn't a big deal unless you want to dehydrate taller items and have to remove trays, but you can cover the holes with aluminum foil if need be): http://tinyurl.com/avb59e3 Hope this helps!

David S's Review

Raw zucchini bread recipe
5
5 out of 5

Awesome recipe. Have made about 6 batches so far and just tried making them with 2 cups of apples and 1 cup of zucchini instead of all zucchini. Absolutely wonderful and came out nearly identical in texture to the originals but with the apple-bread taste. This is absolutely the best recipe of yours we have tried. Also, I have used both psyllium husk and the psyllium husk power and have noticed absolutely no difference. Since the husk is cheaper per pound, I would say just use the husk.

May I use Chia seeds instead of psyllium husks ?

Hi Uli,

Hmmm - this is a tough question to answer. They will work out in a general sense, BUT they won't be as moist without the psyllium husk. It's kind of like asking whether you can use vanilla instead of chocolate in a recipe - you CAN do it, but it won't be the same :)

Hope this helps!

PS: use ground chia seeds

Yes I've been adding beans to my salads :) I also have a raw sprouted protein powder I have most days. Never had a milk supply problem :) I might just try the coconut flour and see what happens! I'll let you know

I can't eat nuts (except pine nuts) due to my 5 Month old daughter having an intolerance to nuts that's coming through my breast milk if I eat them. Which was really hard when we found out, my diet being only fruit, veg, nuts and seeds, I lost 1/4 of the foods I could eat :( guess I could use pine nuts... And I do for a few recipes, but they are ridiculously expensive and rare to fine organic ones! I love your nut free recipe section... Thanks for that!!!

Gasp! Bummer, Miranda. Ugh, and pine nuts are the worst for $$$. I almost never use them for that reason :)

Glad you're finding the nut-free section useful! Are you making sure you get enough protein without the nuts? You may want to add some beans (chickpeas, kidney beans etc) to your diet to make sure you're getting lots of good nutrients in your breastmilk for your wee one :) Might be an easy addition that may be cooked but it's important for you and your babe

What are your thoughts on subbing the walnuts for coconut flour? Do you think it would work?

Hi Miranda, hmmm. Thinking.

Why do you want to sub it?

Tried this with carrot instead of zucchini today. They really satisfy that chewy bread need. It's great for my step daughter who is a carb addict.

Hi Jessica, yes, that would be lovely :) If they are unsweetened you may want to bump up the sweetness a titch, otherwise you should be good to go :)

Raw zucchini bread recipe

5 out of 5

Tastes awesome. When I woke up this morning it was still kind of wet in the middle so I left it in the dehydrator. I work 12 hours so hopefully it will be ready by the time I get home. I can't wait to have some for snacking.
