When I went to nutrition school, we studied the raw food diet, and I was very intrigued! I went to the bookstore and bought all of the raw books I could find, and then came home and got “cooking.” The breads and crackers looked so delicious, so I dove into those first. Raw vegan onion bread was the first one I made, and I became completely addicted to it! I would bring some to work and end up eating all of it within an hour of getting to work, so much for my 16-hour shift snacks!
Years later, I wanted to recreate this recipe and could not find the original anywhere! Then one day, my recipe card fell out of a book that my 2-year-old was playing with! It was a sign – these must be made again. I made some tweaks and even started adding carrot pulp. Deeeelish! I hope you enjoy them too! Make a double batch; you will be glad you did!
I use this bread for sandwiches. I also break it up into smaller chunks to use as crackers. You can even crumble them on top of salads and add them to soups. Such an amazing savory flavor!

- In a food processor, slice the onions using the disc (you will get some small pieces, and some small slices).
- Process the flax seeds and sunflower seeds in the food processor so they are nice and ground up.
- Pour in the olive oil and aminos (sorry, dark photo!).
- I also like to add carrot pulp to my crackers when I have some leftover from juicing, I adjust the liquids in the recipe accordingly.
- Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, stir until well mixed.
- Spread evenly on a dehydrator tray, using the silicon sheets, to about 1/4 inch thickness.
- Dehydrate at 110 F until done to your likeness. I like it more pliable for bread, and crunchier for crackers.
- When done, slice into large or small squares. It can be raw vegan onion bread or crackers.
- Serve as you would with your favorite spreads, or use it as the “bread” in sandwiches.
- I store them in a large plastic bag in the cabinet, but they can also be stored in the fridge.
