This recipe was inspired by my Raw Honey Oat Bread that I created many years ago. I increased the measurements, omitted the Italian seasoning, replacing it with cinnamon and changed up the flours I used. The end result was perfecto’.
You do not have to knead this bread but trust me, you NEED this bread! hehe Raw honey is like liquid-gold to me. It is this all-natural sweetener that gives this bread a slightly sweet flavor. Did you know that honey supports Bifidobacteria which is present in our gastrointestinal tract? This is essential for efficient digestion and good health. Honey contains pre/pro biotics that help the growth and activity of Bifidobacteria because it is an alkaline-forming food, and is similar to ingredients found in fruits. It doesn’t ferment in the stomach and it can be used to counteract indigestion.
But here is something even more interesting that I read about honey… They make honey infused bandages called Medihoney. It has been known to close some chronic wounds that have defied modern drugs, but also acts as a protective barrier against secondary infections. I have slathered honey on my bread before, but never on my scraped knee, I am going to remember this for my next unplanned trip. :) And trust me, I am known for tripping on flat ground. Bob loves to tease me by grabbing my elbow as we walk down the street… “ Be careful angel, the ground is flat.” lol
Anyway, back to this heavenly bread… there is something unique and wonderful when it comes to the smell of bread and even though this bread isn’t baked in a conventional oven… the “baking” that takes place in the dehydrator emits the most incredible aroma. Aaah EAU DE bread! Bob asked/told me to put the dehydrator in our bedroom so we could smell it all night. hehe I came “-“ (this) close in doing so. If you have family members who are still new and unsure of raw foods this recipe will win them over even if you have to toast it! It won’t be raw after toasting but it will have been made with much healthier ingredients than store-bought and also made with your love. Can’t beat that. I served this with Raw Raspberry Basil Date Jam.
