Apple Oat Bread

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

I have to admit that this recipe turned out very delightful.  It has more of a chewy bread texture so don’t be looking for the crunch of a cracker or the fluff of Wonder Bread. :)  The sweetness from the raisins brings a perfect balance in this bread.  You could easily make a raw jam or almond butter to spread on it but my husband prefers it just as is.

Ingredients:

  • 2 organic apples peeled and cored
  • 1/4 cup raw oats, ground to a flour
  • 1/2 cup ground flax meal
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice (juice of half a lemon)
  • 1/3 cup raisins (optional)

Preparation:

  1. Ground flax seeds – the best way to do this is in a coffee grinder that you have specially for your raw flour/powders.
  2. Process your oat in the food processor into a fine powder first, then add mix all ingredients until well incorporated.  Set the powders aside in a separate bowl.
  3. In your food processor blend the apples and lemon juice together.
  4. Add in your ground oats and flax meal.  Process until nice and creamy.  Now add in your raisins and blend till mixed well.  Allow the batter to “rest’ for about 10 minutes so the flax meal can help absorb any liquid.
  5. Spread onto teflex sheet that came with your dehydrator.  I made mine on one tray making it nice and thick.  Score into whatever shape you desire.
  6. Dehydrate at 145 degrees for 45 minutes, reduce temp to 105 degrees for about 24 hours, flipping it at the half mark onto the mesh screen.  This won’t crisp up so be aware.
  7. Store in a glass container in the fridge to give it its longest shelf life.

I took a picture of it just before it went into the dehydrator.  I wanted to show you how thick it looked.

    Amy:
    loved this recipe, however I could not getmine to look as pretty as yours, how did you get your’s to set up so squared on the teflex sheets? Mine was sticky a bit I couldn’t seem to get it shaped nicely,
    I’d like to make more to serve for a get to gether we are having but I want it to look nice.
    Mine tasted great but look ahhh.. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
    PS I love your sight & recipes, It is helping my familymake that switch over closer & closer to total RAW, I orderedmy excaliper thru your sight so I hope you ended up getting credit for the sale, cause it sends you to Amazon. But I love it.

      Good morning Jodi,

      I need to ask a few questions so I can better help you here. When you say that yours didn’t look as pretty was that during the prep stage or after when you served it? Did it hold its shape once dried? Did you dry it as one large sheet, then cut it into the desired size? Was the batter to wet as you were putting it on the dehydrator sheet? Please keep in touch and lets see if we can trouble shoot this. :) amie sue

    I loved this recipe ! But my kids don’t really like the taste of the flax … Do you think it would be possible to replace it with hemp seeds ?
    Thank you !

    • amie-sue says:

      Good morning Jenny,

      If possible, don’t omit it entirely…. the flax adds to the texture and how it holds together. Can you try mayb 2 Tbsp of flax and 2 Tbsp chia seeds… or if you are totally against it, due all ground chia. Hemp seeds would taste fine in it but it doesn’t “do” what flax does. Does this help? Have a wonder weekend. amie sue

    • Jenny says:

      Thank you, i’ll try with half chia and half flax. We’ll see what my kids think about it !

    The good news is that I actually made them correctly and they are wonderful. The bad news is that I have seven people in my family and what took me two days to make because I don’t have the best dehydrator went in minutes. So, here I go again. I’m going to times the recipe by seven (I’m not kidding).

    Can it be done on the oven?

    Thank you in advance

    • amie-sue says:

      I don’t know Rodrigo, I don’t bake my raw recipes here on this site. You can try but risk the loss of some of the health benefits of keeping it raw. If that isn’t an issue, put the temp at the lowest setting and keep the door cracked while you back it. Keep an eye on it though. Good luck, sorry I can’t help much in this area. amie sue

  5. Rodrigo Coutinho says:

    Thank you very much for your quick reply. I’ll try that.

    I have just made this, its in the dehydrator right now but I am wondering if I got the measuring right…. It is a very small bread right? I managed to get it really nice and square like yours but its quite small.. about 15 x 15cm and quite flat. Is that the size you have in your pictures? I thought it was going to be the size of the dehydrator mesh…
    I can tell this is going to be delicious! Perhaps I should make another batch straight away… Thank you! I am new to raw foods and yours is the best page I have seen so far (and I spend a lot of time researching!) so well done. :-)

      Hello Monica…

      Yes, the bread recipes make smaller loaves. Not as big as a standard loaf I would say. Thank you so much for your kind words. :) I hope that you find much inspiration here. Have a blessed evening, amie sue

  7. Monica says:

    Hi Amie Sue, the bread was divine, thank you. :-) I will be making it again very soon but will double the recipe. :-)
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Monica

    • amie-sue says:

      That is great Monica. So glad to hear that you liked it. :) I know when I make the raw breads, they don’t last long and I am not pointing fingers (Bob) haha Have a great weekend, amie sue

  8. Monica says:

    Hi Amie Sue, I have made this bread again and its even better this time as I have doubled the recipe. The only thing is that I am leaving it in the dehydrator for 24 hours, I took it out at about 17 hrs as it looked and tasted pretty ready to me.. I have shared your recipe on our Juicing Page on Facebook (Soul Juices) hope its ok. I mentioned Nouveau Raw and posted a link to your site under my pics.. Yes I took pics of the bread making process. My final pic looks lovely (check it out on FB), HUGE thanks for inspiring me, I am loving this new raw food adventure. :-) x

    Correction: I meant “The only thing is that I am NOT leaving in the dehydrator for 24hrs”…

    • amie-sue says:

      Good morning Monica,
      I am so glad that you are enjoying this recipe. That is just fine to share it on FB. :) The time for drying will always vary depending on how much moisture is the ingredients and of course what a persons preference is. Have a wonderful weekend, amie sue

    Hello! Would it be possible to make this bread with 1 apple and 1 banana? I suppose I’d have to adjust the flax-oat ratio right?

    Love your website, so inspiring even if I only occasionally experiment with raw food it’s divine each time :)

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello Gabrielle,

      You bet you can. You might not need to monkey around the with other ingredients. The banana will also sort of bind things together. Again remember that the outcome will be on the flexible side, even more so with the banana. But it should taste yummy! Keep me posted if you give it a try, Blessings, amie sue
