I’ve been playing with bread recipes again. One of my favorite raw breads is the Mediterranean Almond Bread recipe I found on the Gone Raw website. I love the savory, herby flavor of this bread. This is a riff on that recipe, my raw mediterranean almond loaf bread.

Since I discovered the wonderful spongy texture that psyllium gives raw bread recipes, I have been wanting to modify that almond bread recipe to a loaf. I think you will agree this is a success!

For those who have nut allergies, the almond flour can be replaced with coconut flour or even chickpea flour (since it is a savory bread). You will have to play with the proportions of liquid to dry ingredients because all non-grain flours have different characteristics. In particular, almond have fat that help to keep the bread moist, other flours may need additional fat to create the right texture.

  • 1 zucchini, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 apples, cored and roughly chopped
  • 2 T fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 c extra virgin olive oil, use less if sun-dried tomatoes are in olive oil
  • 1/3 c sun-dried tomatoes

  • 2 t dried marjoram
  • 1 c almond flour
  • 1/2 c flax seed, ground
  • 3/4 c psyllium husk



Process the olive oil, sun dried tomatoes, zucchini, apple, lemon juice, salt and dried herbs until thoroughly mixed.


Add the almond meal and process again until a batter is formed.


In a bowl mix the batter with the flax meal by hand. Add psyllium 1/4 c at a time just until the bread holds together when pressed.


When mixed, process the whole batter in the machine again in small batches to achieve a light fluffy texture.


Press dough together until it forms a small loaf. Rub surface with olive oil to prevent cracking.


Dehydrate for 1 hour at 145F to form a crust.


Dehydrate for 10 hours or more at 115F or until bread feels light in your hand.


If you are not going to eat the bread within 3 days, slice, freeze and dehydrate for 15-20 mins at 145F when ready to serve.
