Cornmeal may be raw, definitely if you make it yourself. Rice is not raw. How about fine almond flour or coconut flour?
It depends on the recipe - is it sweet or savory? Could you use a sweetener like agave nectar or maple syrup to hold it together? A banana?

How about Chia seeds or flax seeds, both hold things together. Even ground they may work.

I would take almond flour (made from almond pulp you get from making milk....then dehydrate that and grind it into flour)
Use about 3 parts almond flour to 1 part ground flax seed....then liquid of some sort...if you are dehydrating a bread...
It would really help if we knew what you were doing??

If u dont have any pulp just use almonds and grind them up. I did this long before I decided to do Raw. It makes great flour along with other nuts. I would think there would be some seeds that would work great as well. Find one that is maybe lower in natural fats and then mix several dif kinds.
Flax seed works great but I did not care for the texture it gave breads. The thing is i made onion bread using flax seed and did not like it so kept it in the frig for about a week and the onions have mellowed out along with the flax. Now i love it.

I would just buy some raw quinoa and grind in the dry dry blade of a vitamix, or do the same with oats, buckwheat....just use a real flour :)
Or sesame seeds!
