The Chefettes' Breakfast Bread

THE CHEFETTES BREAKFAST BREAD
Contributed by Nancy Riedesel & Sheri Yohe (The Chefettes)
 

Ingredients: yields 1 loaf
2c.     raw almonds, soaked and dehydrated
½ c.    chopped zucchini (1 medium zucchini with skin)
1 ½ c. zucchini (peeled, quartered)
¼ c.    raisins
¼ c.    honey
¼ c.    water
¾ tsp sea salt
¼ c.    flax meal
¼ c.    psyllium husks powder
1 c.     oat flour
       Toasted coconut or ground flax for topping the dough
 
Directions:
  1. Place first two ingredients in a food processor and process to a very small nugget size. This is to give it texture. Remove from food processor and place in a separate bowl.
  2. Blend the 1 ½ cups of zucchini, honey, raisins, water and salt in the food processor and process until everything is well combined and broken down.
  3. Add in the almond/zucchini mixture, flax meal, psyllium husks and oat flour. Process until everything is well combined. If the mixture is too dry add a little water, no more than 2 TB at a time. You want the batter to stick together when you pinch it.
  4. Remove the dough and form a bread loaf with your hands, 4 inches wide by 3 inches high by 7-8 inches long, on a mesh dehydrator sheet.
  5. Sprinkle the top of your loaves with flax meal and/or toasted coconut, and press it into the loaf to give it that fresh baked look.
  6. Optional: lightly coat the top of the dough with honey before sprinkling with flax and/or coconut.
  7. Dehydrate at 145 degrees for an hour to create the crust. Set a timer so you don’t forget!
  8. Remove the bread and cut it with a serrated bread knife to the desired slices about ½” thick and lay them individually on the mesh screen.
  9. Continue to dehydrate at 105 degrees for another 8 hours, depending on desired dryness.
Storage and Serving Tips: 
  • Store this bread in an air-tight container, in the fridge, for 3-5 days.
  • The more moisture that is left in your bread, the shorter the shelf life.
  • Therefore, shelf life will vary with your drying technique.
  • This is a fabulous bread to use with nut butters and jam for breakfast.
  • Keep in mind, the whole purpose of eating a raw diet is to eat foods at their peak of freshness, so don’t expect this bread to have a long expiration date.
