I can't believe this thread is over a year old. I just got a dehydrator and this is the first thing I am making. Too early to tell how it will turn out but I have high hopes.
This recipe is the best! It's more like a cracker than a bread, but still yummy, especially warm out of the dehydrator. This is the only recipe I make all the time. A real favorite!

Maybe it's the onions that are giving you a headache? If they are very strong they have a lot of, well what is it, aromatic oils? I'm not quite sure but some people have a strong reaction to onions and garlic, esp. if it's in such a high concentration.
I can eat onions by the bulb as they are, I don't mind. But I have a friend who cannot sleep after eating garlic and gets a headache if she eat's "strong" onions (with a lot of flavour and spice, I mean).
Every day is a new day - embrace it!
I had the same problem with the oil with mine. I used what the recipe called for, but it was so oily that it took days to dry out. Next time I will use MUCH less oil.

I also added a little honey which was a nice touch and took down the bitterness/richness a bit.
I did something similar, I cut the oil in half and used half oil half water. It dried much quicker and was still so yummy it was hard to keep it in the dehydrator and not eat it all before it came out!
My dogs love these. One thing I love about raw food is my dogs don't beg for my dinner, but with these, they did. I offerred one of them my sandwich thinking she wouldn't want it, would sniff it then stop begging, but she took the whole thing out of my hand and ate it. *Cries*
Smells so Good!!!!
I have this in my dehydrator..yummmm... ... I have an old nesco type that I am using that has three trays. I made the dough into slice sized pieces. The recipe made 15 pieces.. and filled it up just right. I cannot wait till it is done..it smells so good and it is so easy to make.even with the little mini cuisinart I have.

I too have a batch of it in my dehydrator. As I was preparing this earlier today I was wondering how many others were making this and also wondered how many times this HAS been made. It is so good. Since it's just me, I cut mine and freeze it. So easy to grab a slice and create a goodie and go! It's good stuff!!!
And yes, my house smells so good. It's really cold here in MD today and it's a comfort smell. My postal carrier dropped a package off to me and when I opened my door, the smell wafted out, I know she could smell it!
It is so yummy! My mouth is watering thinking of a 'mater/avo/sprout sandwich!!!
That is such a yummy idea... I love tomato sandwiches. :) Do you use any of the raw mayo recipes on your sandwiches? I am just getting back into Raw and am trying to get the staples and raw condiments made...
I am so HUNGRY!!!!!! And I just put it in the dehydrator....lol....
"...forever is composed of nows..."
Oh yeah! Check out this thread. This is absolutely yummy on the bread either alone or with tomato/avocado/sprouts.
But quick! Go fix yourself a green smoothie and drink that to help settle that longing!
And yes, I've made the raw mayo and used that. Also very good!
We should keep this thread on the first page for the benefit of new members. There are so many great hints here.
I have tried out a lot of the variations people have recommended here. All good.
Yesterday I made some and put a bit over half of the diced onions in the FP with the Bragg's and oil. When I added it all to the dry ingredients, I found that I didn't have to thin it with water. It was a bit heavier batter than usual, but I thought I would just give it a whirl anyway.
It is very interesting what the addition of water does (to the spreadability of course), but also to the finished product! Because it was a heavier batter, I wasn't able to get it spread as thinly on the sheet. But even so, they did actually dry a bit faster than my other batches with water and it was so "short" from the oil that it was almost kind of crumbly. The water activates the jell on the flax seeds and binds it all together a lot more, resulting in firmer crackers. Without the water, the crackers were really crunchy. Delicious. Not the thing to try to spread anything on or use for dipping. They are too short for that. But to just eat as is, they are very good.
I used the combination of ground and whole seeds that Madmel posted. I have done it without oil and Bragg's like she said, and that is another thing again. They are milder, kind of firm, but still crisp. Very very good. However I always make some with the other stuff as I really like having a saltier version too .
Have a great day!
This was the very first recipe hubby and I tried in our new Excalibur dehydrator and we loved it. Actually we made pigs of ourselves the first time, it was so good. We're making more of it tonight.
I think I blew my first batch. It wasn't good - and if so many love it, I've got to be able to figure this out.
I used pumpkin seeds instead. We didn't have sunflower seeds. That in and of itself might have been the downfall. I also used tamari instead of nama b/c I haven't found it yet (I know I can find it online). Finally, I think I might have left it in the dehydrator too long.
Boo. Cause it SMELLED so good!! Will try again.
live out loud.
Raw since 1/5/07.
Many unwanted lbs. gone - guesstimating 45-50.
It's not my diet. It's my lifestyle.
