Tower O’ Power!
I got me some more bread making done this week, and this time I switched up the ingredients to make a new recipe. It’s pretty darn tasty, even though the recipe still needs some perfecting. But it’s a good start!
Cinnamon Carrot Raisin Bread (Raw):
- 4 cups shredded carrot
- 3 medium fuji apples, diced
- 1 1/2 cups walnuts (soaked, drained, rinsed)
- 2 1/4 cups sunflower seeds (soaked, drained, rinsed)
- 1 cup flaked or steel cut oats
- 3/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil (melted)
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 teaspoon himalayan sea salt
- 2 cups golden flax seeds
So you are pretty much going to follow the same method (that I just so happened to do a step by step photo post of!) as in the savory raw bread. Feel free to check out that post for a clear idea of what to do when it comes time for making bread!
- Use your food processor to chop the carrot, apples, walnuts and sunflower seeds to a uniform size, think the size of rice. Transfer all of the ingredients to a huge bowl.
- Make oat flour out of your flaked/steel cut oats by using your favorite blender to process them into a flour.
- Add the oat flour, extra virgin coconut oil, pure vanilla extract, cinnamon, raisins, and himalayan sea salt to the huge bowl that the other ingredients are hanging out in.
- Time to make flax meal! Add the flax seeds to your blender and process into a meal-y consistency.
- Add the flax meal to the huge bowl, and mix very well. Work quickly, because as the flax gummifies it will be harder to mold your bread.
- Transfer to three teflexx lined dehydrator trays, and follow the instructions on the savory raw bread post so that I don’t have to attempt to explain how to flatten out the dough and what not.
- Dehydrate at 105 degrees for 8-12 hours.
- Flip the bread over and then dehydrate for another 4-6 hours on the other side.
- Keep in mind that the less time in the dehydrator, the more bread-like it will be, whereas the more time in the dehydrator, the more cracker-like it will be. I recommend setting timers!
Yay for sweet bread!
