Hello you guys,
finally I found out how to make my own raw bread at home with the use of my oven. I’m so thankful for it because now I am having a healthy and delicious alternative for my bread cravings. It’s much cheaper than any raw bread or raw crackers that you can buy in a store and you can eat it fresh and warm out of the oven 🙂 As I’ve been reading a lot about gluten lately I am noticing how much better I feel when I don’t eat products with gluten inside.
I tried out a few varieties until now and found out that I really love the taste of sesame seeds so I put a lot of them. They are rich in calcium and iron and are beneficial for strong bones. Also I add some shredded and dried coconut for the texture. I feel it makes the bread much more chewy and tangy. Also sprouted buckwheat has a nice nutty flavour and is amazingly healthy. You can experiment with your seeds and nuts as you like and create your own bread recipe. I usually always add sprouted sunflower seeds and soaked flax seeds because they hold the dough together the best.
well go go go try it out 🙂
- 1/2 cup soaked & ground flax seeds (minimum 10 min.)
- 3/4 cup soaked sunflower seeds (minimum 8h) or 1 c soaked buckwheat (minimum 8h)
- 1/2 cup dry sunflower seeds
- 3/4 cup sesame seeds
- 1/2 cup coconut flakes
- dash of himalaya salt
You can also add some mashed banana if you like. simply throw everything into your food processor and blend for 2-3 min. You’ll have to stop occasionally to scrape down the sides and blend again. The dough should be sticking together now but easy to spread on the parchment paper. Spread it out evenly not thicker than 7mm. Heat your oven on the lowest possible. That should generally be accurate to not cross 40°. If you have an oven thermometer that would be perfect. I didn’t have one but I came across the tip that If you can stick your hand inside the oven and it doesn’t feel uncomfortable too hot then it won’t do any damage to the food either. SO the big trick is that you leave the oven door slightly open to prevent the oven from getting too hot. I used my metal grater for that purpose as you can see on the picture. So if you got your bread in with the door open, check with your hand after the first 10 min. and if you feel it’s too hot you’ll just have to adjust the oven door slightly.
Baking time is 1 h but usually I take it out after 50 min because I’m mostly impatient and I don’t mind the dough being a little damp.
Btw it tastes delicious with avocado, fresh spinach, and tomatoes. You can also make a pizza out of it and top it with mushrooms peppers and sweetcorn. And I also already used the bread as a cookie cake crust where I spread maple syrup all over it.
Well I hope you enjoy this little recipe as much as I do and it improves your eating habits to the better 🙂
