Recipe Directions

1. Peel and halve the onions. Slice in a food processor (with slicing disc).

2. Place onions in large bowl and mix with the rest of ingredients until thoroughly combined.

3. Spread mix over a Teflex sheet and repeat until all of mixture is used (I usually end up using 2 sheets).

4. Dehydrate at 100° Fahrenheit for 24 hours. Flip and return to dehydrator for 12 hours.

5. Cut into 9 equal pieces (2 cuts horizontally, 2 cuts vertically).

Kandace's Thoughts

By kandace

This is an easy, flavorful bread than can be used to make sandwiches, to dip, or to eat alone. This is an easy recipe for variations!

Pictured with hummus and tomatoes and a side of spinach Caesar salad.

Based on a recipe by Matt Amsden in RAWVolution.

I’ve made a few changes: the paste to onion ratio has been boosted for a thicker consistency, and the nama shoyu percentage is decreased for taste.

I think the next time I do it, I'll mandoline the onions; they came out too thick from the Cuisinart. And I'll add them to the batter gradually so they really mix in.

I'm new to this site and just loving reading the recipes. Probably not the best thing to do during a fast!

Just made slipped my first attempt into the dehydrator then realised the time. It's 12:35PM. So with the 24hrs+12hrs dehydrating time, that means a midnight completion! LOL! Lucky this is a long weekend.

Greenie, I will check how much onion I used next time I make it. Like you, I pretty much guessed it by eye.

I made this today for the first time. I wondered at all the onions, not for the taste (love 'em!) but because I can't figure out how the mixture will hold together with all those onions. I used one very large onion and when I mixed it with the rest of the ingredients, the batter barely coated the onions. I ended up putting the whole mess back in the cuisinart and pulsing it until it became a batter. It's in the dehydrator now and we'll see how it comes out.

For those of you who have made this successfully, how many cups of onions do you add? I wish the recipe mentioned volume instead of '2 large onions'; size varies so much.

In any case, my house smells tantalizing. I'm fasting now and hope I can hold out....

I have been craving the onion bread for some time. Made this today...I didn't manage to equaly distribute the mixture between onions (probably too many onions)... Nevertheless it tastes amazing! better than normal onion bread! Thanks a lot :)

This is my favorite bread recipe! I make it at least twice a week and use it with veggie patties, sandwiches, or just with some sliced avo.

I cannot eat flaxseed crackers or breads, either. I recommend using hulled hemp seed. The kind I get (Nutiva) is already a ground consistency. Love the nutty flavor, too. More expensive but also high in linolenic acid.

For Less Crumbly Bread: My bread always came out crumbly... so, this time, after I processed the sunflower seeds, I put 75% of the Braggs in with the sunflower seeds to process it some more (forgot to add the olive oil). The texture was much nicer. After dehydration, the bread was not as crumbly... it held together very well. YEAY!!!! But, it was saltier! I think the processing of the seeds with the Braggs may have done this... or my taste for "salty" has changed.

i just made this bread and it is the best dehydrated bread i've tried yet! i changed it a bit because of what i had...i used 1 1/2 onion and 1/2 cup of "carmelized onions" which is just onions that have soaked overnight or longer in Bragg's Liquid Aminos and some agave nectar. and instead of using nama shoyu i just poured in the marinade from my carmelized onions...delish!!! i'm making it again!

OMG ! This is So YUM. Tastes like hashbrowns and onion rings combined. My two favorite things. I didn't do the Nama..just did salt instead. And can't believe you could use 3 large onions. I used 2 small onions and it was plenty. But I just can't wait to try different stuff between this bread. Thanks for the recipe. Five stars :)

Hi I am trying to make this bread for the second time. The first time I did something wrong but it tasted good. I like the comment Kandace made where she said she checks it and pushes it together during the process. I blended the nuts and flax meal and olive oil. But it had a really hard time sticking to the onions. I then blended half of the onions in food processor to make more batter and added the other half of onions. It still doesn't look right like there isn't enough batter. I was wondering if it is better to blend the ground nuts with the onion, then add the flax in that order, then add the oil. Did you have any special technique?

i like the recipe the way it is except i only use two onions, next time i'm going to make twice as much because this recipe replaces former snack addictions such as chips or crackers for me

Extra yum. I just made the oil free cracker version of this recipe. I mistakenly soaked and then ground the flax which made the mix pastelike without having oil in it. So it was a kind of chewy cracker but really good! Can't wait to make more

I just flipped (and tasted) mine... it tastes amazing (I more than halved the nama shoyu) but it doesn't hold together so good! Did I make it too thin, maybe?

I'm trying this for the first time right now... but it's my first dehydrator recipe ever, so I shan't be discouraged if it doesn't turn out right (^_^)

Is Miso a healthier alternative to Braggs and Nama/ Would celery juice work as a substitute for the salt flavor/ I would soak flax to get the sticky factor so it's not crumbly, as well.

I used 1 small organic onion... and I still think it's too much onion. I don't want the bread to turn out crumbly, so I take onion out or add more of the other ingrediants in. What makes the bread stick to itself... the flax and what? Maybe I need to make my bread thicker. I really like this bread recipe, but I'd like it to be less... crumbly.

I put mine in mason jars with a cotton ball inside to help keep them crisp. From what I understand, dehydrated items last about 6 months, best in the fridge, but the cotton ball helps to keep the moisture from coming back if you don't have room in the fridge, then I'd say 3 months in the cupboard, and 1 year in the freezer.
