Raw Onion Bread – Forget About the Baked Stuff!

When I first started eating a high raw diet, the type of foods I craved the most were doughy, bready ones. Though I had eaten a diet very high in meat for most of my life, it was pretty easy for me to give up. The other major component of my diet were grains, particularly in the form of bread and crusts, and they were more of a challenge to give up. At first I just avoided encountering the traditional forms of them as best I could so that I didn’t have cravings, but eventually I had a strong desire to replace them.

The first Raw Food that satisfied those cravings was Raw Halva – you can find it in my Recipe Book. It’s very thick, heavy, and not overly sweet. However, I still wanted something closer to traditional breads. I wanted a Raw Bread that had a texture similar to baked bread.


THIS is what I Wanted! You want some too?

For the first 10 months of my Raw Food Journey every one that I tried was more of a flatbread. There were a lot of Raw Onion Breads that were tasty, but didn’t satisfy the cravings I was having. Then I took a Raw Chef Certification Course with the incredible Elaina Love and suddenly a whole new world of culinary expertise opened up to me.

Elaina herself has enough Raw Food knowledge to last a lifetime. Then there were 20 or so other students with varying levels of Raw Food experience. Some of them were already incredible chefs with a vast knowledge of the cuisine. One of them put me on to this exquisite Raw Onion Bread Recipe from NouveauRaw. It totally rocked my world.  It’s thick, delicious, and has a similar texture to a traditional german style bread, like a rye or pumpernickel.

So I had to make my own version. Since then I’ve made 4 or 5 versions. You can mess around with this recipe, using it as a template and add all sorts of different flavors. The most important ingredients for the bread texture are the almonds (brazil nuts are a great substitute as well), the onions (they provide a lot of the flavor as well), and the psyllium husk. The rest you can substitute all kinds of ingredients in for. You can find another one of my Raw Onion Bread Recipes in my Recipe Book.

Raw Onion Bread Recipe


  • ***Get Fresh Guaranteed Organic Produce for this Recipe delivered right to your door step anywhere in Bali through UbudDirect

  • 1 ½ cups Almonds (soaked and dehydrated)
  • 1 2/3 cups Onion (chopped)
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • ¼ cup Sun-dried tomatoes (Soaked in Olive Oil for at least 20 minutes)
  • 1/3 cup Shredded Carrots
  • ¼ cup Goji Berries
  • ¼ cup Water
  • ¼ cup Flax Meal (ground flax seed)
  • ¼ cup Almond Meal
  • ½ cup Psyllium Husk
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Light Miso*
  • ½ tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • *Not raw but a very healthy cultured food. For a fully raw recipe you can replace with a bit more salt – don't add a full tsp of salt though that would probably be too much.


  1. Blitz almonds in food processor until they reach a small kernel size, just before it becomes a meal. Make sure you don’t over process them, as the almonds provide texture.
  2. Remove almonds from food processor and place in a separate bowl.
  3. Blitz onions, garlic, carrots, sun-dried tomatoes, goji berries, water, miso and seasonings until everything is well combined and broken down.
  4. Add in the almonds, flax and almond meal, psyllium husks and nutritional yeast and blitz until everything is well combined. At this point it should be sticky and doughy and you should be able to form it into a loaf easily with your hands.
  5. Remove the dough and form it into a bread loaf. Cut shallow scores on top of the loaf the size the bread slices that you want in the end.
  6. Brush the top with some olive oil and then sprinkle on dried onion flakes or nutritional yeast or whatever else you want!
  7. Dehydrate on mesh sheet at 145 F for 1-2 hours. This is to create the crust. Don't forget to set an alarm as you will kill lots of nutrients and enzymes if you leave it in at 145 F for longer than 2 hours. NouveauRaw has a nice explanation of the way the dehydrator works on her site, as well as why it's cool to use it at temperatures above 115 F.
  8. Dehydrate on mesh sheet for 8-10 hours at 115 F. Take out and cut into slices.
  9. Dehydrate slices on mesh sheet for another 8-10 hours, flipping once.
  10. Eat with dips, pates, jerkies, cheeses, tomato bruschetta, or whatever. Or just plain! It's soooo good it doesn't need anything!
  11. Yields 1 Loaf that makes around 10 thick slices.

  1. Looks good! No dehydrator yet, may try it in ovens lowest setting.

    • Thanks Holly 🙂 Lemme know how it goes I don’t have an oven but people often ask about doing dehydrated recipes in ovens at my classes so would be good knowledge to have!

  2. You knew raw bread could be done? I must try!

    • done and done well 🙂 Let me know how it goes 🙂

  3. Looks really good – I’m going to try it – but wouldn’t it save dehydration time to just cut the bread in slices in the first place and THEN dehydrate?

    • The bread is quite doughy and may not cut clean slices at first. Also, to get a nice crust it’s important to dehydrate the full loaf for a good amount of time. You could probably get a nice product cutting it right off the bat as well and save some electricity. Let me know how it goes if you try!

  4. HI! just found your website..looks great! Do you have your book in paperback? A question on the onion bread…do you think this could be frozen? Many thanks 🙂

    • Hi Dolphin,

      No the book is only digital. I am going to be releasing a recipe book within the next month that I will have on paperback – stay tuned 🙂

      That is a good question. It’s so good it probably won’t last more than a few days haha but I think that it could be frozen. Give it a try and let us know!

      Happy Freeshin’


  5. Sounds delicious! I will have to try it soon 🙂

  6. Hello, I am wondering what the yeast in the recipe is for if you don’t let it rise? Would someone explain that to me. Thank You!

  7. Then nutritional yeast is for flavor. What strange about the recipe, is that there is no quantity given during the recipe. Question Johnny fresh how much nutritional yeast should we be using? Thanks.

  87. Thanks for your text. I would like to say that your health insurance dealer also works for the benefit of the particular coordinators of the group insurance plan. The health insurance professional is given a list of benefits desired by individuals or a group coordinator. Exactly what a broker may is find individuals and also coordinators which often best complement those desires. Then he provides his referrals and if both parties agree, the particular broker formulates an agreement between the 2 parties.

  88. An added important component is that if you are a mature person, travel insurance intended for pensioners is something you must really look at. The older you are, the greater at risk you happen to be for allowing something awful happen to you while in most foreign countries. If you are not covered by quite a few comprehensive insurance coverage, you could have some serious problems. Thanks for discussing your good tips on this web blog.

  89. I must say, as a lot as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while.

  90. Great post. I am going through a few of these issues as well..

  91. Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored to tears at work so I
    decided to browse your website on my iphone during lunch break.
    I love the info you provide here and can’t wait to take
    a look when I get home. I’m amazed at how fast
    your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G ..
    Anyways, awesome blog!

  92. Thanks for the marvelous posting! I genuinely enjoyed reading it, you may be a
    great author. I will remember to bookmark your blog and will come back
    later in life. I want to encourage you to definitely
    continue your great posts, have a nice day!

  93. I was able to find good information from your articles.

  94. Thanks for giving your ideas. I’d personally also like to convey that video games have been at any time evolving. Technology advances and innovative developments have made it simpler to create genuine and active games. These kind of entertainment games were not actually sensible when the actual concept was first being tried. Just like other styles of technologies, video games also have had to progress by way of many years. This itself is testimony to the fast development of video games.

  95. Wonderful blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any tips? Many thanks!

  96. It’s an remarkable article in support of all the web people; they will get benefit from it I
    am sure.

  97. Hi friends, how is the whole thing, and what you wish for to say about this article, in my view
    its really remarkable designed for me.

  98. One more thing. I believe that there are several travel insurance web pages of dependable companies that allow you to enter your vacation details and have you the quotations. You can also purchase the actual international travel cover policy online by using your current credit card. Everything you should do would be to enter your current travel particulars and you can view the plans side-by-side. Only find the package that suits your capacity to pay and needs after which use your bank credit card to buy it. Travel insurance online is a good way to take a look for a respected company to get international travel cover. Thanks for giving your ideas.

  99. When someone writes an paragraph he/she retains the idea of a user
    in his/her brain that how a user can be aware of it.
    Thus that’s why this paragraph is amazing. Thanks!

  100. One other thing I would like to talk about is that as opposed to trying to accommodate all your online degree tutorials on times that you finish work (because most people are tired when they return home), try to get most of your instructional classes on the saturdays and sundays and only a few courses in weekdays, even if it means taking some time off your saturday and sunday. This pays off because on the saturdays and sundays, you will be extra rested and concentrated upon school work. Thanks a bunch for the different ideas I have figured out from your weblog.

  101. Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored to death at work
    so I decided to check out your website on my iphone during lunch break.
    I love the information you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I

  102. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Great work!

  103. When I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added-
    checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I get 4 emails with
    the same comment. Perhaps there is an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?

    deal of work? I’ve absolutely no expertise in computer programming but I was hoping to
