I've only made this recipe about 3 times in 3 years but it has to be by far the best raw bread I ever had, it's texture is very similar to SAD bread and the taste is great.
2 cups sprouted rye
1 1/2 T minced garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup carob powder
1 T caraway seeds
1 1/2 t celtic salt
Process all ingredients in food processor and puree. Form into a bread about 1 1/2 inches tall (I normally do about 3/4 inches tall) and dehydrate for 13-17 hours (I normally find it take at least 24 hours or more even if I make it 3/4 inches tall).

Well mine was still quite moist after 24 hours so I cut my bread into about 3/4 inch wide "slice" so I end up with 3/4 x 3/4 inch bread sticks, they will dry faster that way.

I am really looking for a raw bread. I am going to try this as soon as I get some sprouted rye. Why form it into a loaf? Could you not spread it out 1/4 inch thick and cut into 4 slices so you had a decent sized slice? I have seen several breads that say to do what you did and so I am wondering if there is a reason for it.

I think it may be so the bread can form a crispy crust around and stay soft in the middle, if it's done flat in 1/4 inch thick bread you'd only have crispy crust, I guess it depends on the texture you want, I like that this bread stays soft in the middle that's what makes it very similar to SAD bread.

Ahh true enough. A crust is nice. So I will try what you suggested and cut it in to slices to dry for the last bit. Thanks.

Ooohhhh...sounds awesome. I've been wanting to try some more 'bread'-like recipes lately. Thanks for sharing!

I made this once several years ago, before I had much experience with the dehydrator and it fermented before it was dry and was horrid. I would suggest starting the dehydrator at a higher setting for the first few hours and then turning it down for the remainder of the time till dry. Will have to try it again. Thanks~

I don't use the starting at a higher temperature method because I always have multiple things in it at once so if I start at an above raw temperature the things that are already dry will cook.

That makes sense. I'll make sure this is the only thing going. Would hate to ruin another batch by having it ferment again. I love the taste of rye.

I've never had anything ferment, what temperature do you use? I have mine at 105 all the time. Maybe the air is more humid also where you are.
It's definitely humid in Florida! I have to do the same thing, Glimr.
