With little effort I soaked, blended and molded the bread into a small yet beautiful little loaf. I turned the dehydrator on for the night and by this afternoon we were making a sandwich with 100% raw, gluten-free, vegan, and kosher sandwich bread. It was absolutely delicious and turned out better than I’d hoped for. You will hardly believe it is raw!

How to Make Raw, Gluten-Free Sandwich Bread [Vegan, Gluten-Free, Raw]





4, 2 slice servings



  • 3/4 cup, plus 1 tablespoon raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup flax meal
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 3/4 cup onion, quartered
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon onion flakes
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning


  1. Place almonds and raisins in a bowl, cover with water, and soak while preparing the other ingredients.
  2. Add flax seed and chia seeds in a blender or food processor and blend for 8 seconds.  Place in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Put onion, garlic, vinegar, salt, and any optional seasonings into the blender.  Mince for 7 seconds.
  4. Drain the almonds and raisins, add to blender with the onion mix and mince for 10 seconds. Push down sides with a spatula and repeat.
  5. Kneed and work in the flax and chia seed mixture.
  6. Press the dough into a large ball, press into a loaf firmly to prevent cracking. Opt to brush with raw flax oil and a sprinkle of herbs and seeds.
  7.  Dehydrate at 115°F for 15-16 hours. If using an oven, place the loaf on a raised cookie rack to ventilate while baking at 200°F or the lowest temperature for 3-4 hours.
