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.

Any suggestions for a substitute for the ground flax seeds?
I am in menopause and stay away from flax!

Would love to try this recipe! What do you think about using chia seeds instead?

Thanks!

How to get your ex lover back even if it seems impossible.
After my boyfriend of 3 years broke up with me, I could barely speak without crying. I felt blindsided and didn't know what to do and I was devastated. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant for him. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my sister and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to give it a trail. I messaged the spell caster called dr.unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be ok, and he told me what is needed to be done and i provide the necessary things. He cast the spell and surprisingly 28 hours later my boyfriend called me. It was so surprising, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that has happened He wanted us to come back together. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to Dr.Unity . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your boyfriend moved to another girl, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Unity for help now..Here his contact.

Love this recipe and want to try. Can I bake this? At what temp and for how long? I’m aware they wouldn’t be raw anymore, but still significantly healthier than other bread I’ve been eating!

Great recipe! I've been making a variation of this for a number of years, almost every week, and it's a big favorite. Using red onions (if you don't mind the strong onion flavor), ground flax, and walnuts, with a dash of olive oil and soy sauce. When they're partially dry, I transfer them off of the drier sheets on to plain grid, and let them dry 24 hrs, so they're crisp. A lot of people like them, and it's hard to keep them around very long!

Love this recipe. Do you measure the onions before or after processing?
Thank you!

Hi Melanie - Great question. I usually peel and roughly chop the onions into manageable chunks (like, the size of orange slices - or 2 dices combined - like, 1-2 inches by 1-2 inches) and then measure from there :)

I hope that makes sense!

When you say five cups of onions, do you mean five cups before processing, eh?

Hi Rhonda,

This recipe needs oil!

You could use another type of oil of you prefer, or you could reduce it to 1/4 cup, but generally, oil is necessary :)

Hi Robin,

I'm so glad you've been enjoying this onion bread!

You can use almonds instead of the sunflower seeds, no problem, since almonds and sunflower seeds behave very similarly in most recipes.

Using hemp (or bulgur) is not recommended, since they are very different from sunflower seeds.

I am a bit unsure about using raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas) instead of sunflower seeds. I think it'd be okay, but maybe try 1/2 sunflower seeds and 1/2 pumpkin seeds first and see how that goes :)

Hi Arjatim,

I am happy to help!

The nutritional info breakdown below (for example, protein, fat etc) only shows a few components of the overall recipe. It would be pretty rare for nutritional information weight to total the overall portion weight. For example, water won't show up in nutritional information but adds to portion weight. :)

Also, the weight of the portion and the nutritional information is calculated *before* dehydrating. So with 5 cups of onions going into this there's going to be a lot of water weight. Dehydrating will reduce the weight but the nutritional information will stay the same as it only removes water which is not reflected in nutritional information.

I hope this helps!

Since getting my dehydrator, I have tried several wrap recipes. Yours is the only one we have loved. I had some soaked Brazil nuts and and dehydrated them at the same time. omg, onion flavored Brazil nuts. Will be making this recipe a lot and will always add a tray of nuts or seeds.
