Raw Gluten-Free Pumpkin Raisin Biscotti Recipe

Come’on pumpkin let’s get uncooking!   This morning I woke up ready to play in the kitchen.  For the past few days I have been moving a baggie of diced pumpkin from one end of the fridge to the other.  I kept telling myself that I needed to do something with it and this morning was the time.

This recipe could be spread out to make crackers or bread sized slices as well.  This is my favorite time of the year.  As I was working away in the kitchen this morning making this recipe I had Christmas music pumped through out the house.  Happy Holidays!



  1. Combine the almonds and sunflower seeds in the food processor, fitted with the “S” blade, and process until finely chopped.  Transfer to a medium-sized bowl.
  2. Add flax and cinnamon, pumpkin spice to your bowl and mix until well combined.
  3. In the blender or food processor process pumpkin, carrots, apple, and dates until you get a puree.
  4. Stir wet ingredients into dry.
  5. Add raisins.
  6. Pour your batter on the cutting board and shape into a loaf (as seen below) Slice into 1″-1 1/2″ slices and shape into a biscotti shape. Dehydrate for 1 hour at 145 (F), reduce heat and continue to dehydrate at 115 (F) for 6 hours.

Culinary Explanations:

  • Why do I start the dehydrator at 145 degrees (F).  Click (here) to learn the reason behind this.
  • When working with fresh ingredients it is important to taste test as you build a recipe.  Learn why (here).
  • Don’t own a dehydrator? Learn how to use your oven (here). I do however truly believe that it is a worthwhile investment. Click (here) to learn what I use.

  1. Just a question about the puréed pumpkin: is that raw pumpkin placed in the Vitamix with a little water to blend until smooth? Or do you purée it simply in a food processor with the steel S-blade? Really love your recipes: they are fresh, new and different from other raw food sites which can be quite unhealthy with high fat content from over-use of nuts.

      When I made this “biscotto” I just used a sugar pumpkin. Threw the flesh in the vitamix and made the puree. You might have to add a small amount of water and even possible that you might need extra sweetener. It all depends on the ripeness of the pumpkin. The joys of using fresh produce. :)

      • Thank you Amie-Sue, I’ll try it that way. It looks delicious. I’ve got abundant almond pulp at the moment, as well as carrot pulp, so I’m going to make a few recipes from your site now. You are an inspiration!

          Your welcome Laurinda! Please let me know how it turns out. I wish I had an abundant amount of almond pulp!! I have so many recipes that I want to test but don’t have enough pulp. I have even dreamed of finding a place that makes nut milk and wonders where they can ship their pulp to instead of throwing it away. hahaha Always good to dream? :)

    How long do these keep, Amie-Sue, do you know? I’m guessing a few weeks at room temp, thanks to the raisin and dates . . .

    • amie-sue says:

      Hi Mama,
      At room temp, I would aim for 1 week, but it all depends how far you take the drying process. The more moisture in a food, the shorter the life span.
