Well, I also used only one sweet onion. I sliced it very thin with the mandoline. It turned out dense and chewy......not sure it won me over. Will have to play with it.....more than one onion and some spices. I used another poster's idea and used 1/4 c agave with 1/4 c EVOO so it wasn't as oily as some were saying. But still not where I would've like for it to be.....
Was thinking it would be a good sandwich bread for nut butter and apples and sprouts and carrots....may have to go make that now....
As I posted, batch #1 wasn't that good due to the fact that I used too much flower. I used 1 cup each of the seeds, grounded them down and used THAT flower...way too much. Also I only used 1 onion. Not much flavor.
Batch #2 - Used the correct amount of flower and 3 onions. Onions were "diced" using FP disc. This batter was much more wet.
Dried for 8 hours, then flipped. I should have just flipped it onto the mesh screen, but kept it on the paper. 4 hours later, I decided to remove it from the paper and keep on the mesh screen. Dried for another 8 hours (20 hours total). Came out perfect, just like bread. The only problem was that for 20 hours my house smelled very good while the onion bread was drying. Unfortunately when I got up in the morning to take it out, I was kind of tired of the aroma and I didn't want any bread at all.
Kind of like the fruit vendor who works all day cutting fruit and then goes home and doesn't even want to look at fruit.
Oh well.... maybe this afternoon.
Updated 10/4 - Okay had a chance to try the bread on Sunday. Fantastic. Addicting. Only problem is I am on a 3 day juice fast which started (unexpectedly) Sunday night. Wasn't going to do the fast until next week, but it just happened this way. Now I get a chance to stare at the bread. The smell is still in the house too. First juice fast ever and my house smell's like food heaven... I'm my own worst enemy.

I'm starting out on raw food slowly. I've made flax crackers before and they were too crunchy and too flax-y tasting for me, and really turned me off to making crackers. This onion bread is perfect! Thank you so much for posting this! I don't have nama shoyu, so I used regular soy sauce instead, some ingredients I just have to sacrifice for my budget, but once I'm making more money it will totally go into what I put into my body. My house smelled awesome too while it was dehydrating. It did take me a little longer to dehydrate, so I left it on overnight (I don't have a fancy dehydrator, I have one that I got a Kohl's and was inexpensive and it's kind of cheap, but it works for me). I also recommend eating them with a napkin or washing your hands with good soap afterwards, because I ate them with my fingers and my hands smelled like onions, hands and the breath!! I liked it, but I'm sure my studio mates didn't!! :)

Reason: Editing to add photo!!
two and a half pounds is like four large onions! LOL sound like a lot though.
also, I use Bragg's Liquid Aminos, rather than soy.
This post reminded me to make some onion bread....I haven't made any in over a year. It seems like the best way I've found is to slice the onions on a mandolyn very thin (tastes better to me) instead of chopping the onions. I've got a ripe avocado to put on it and also some chopped portobello mushrooms marinating in nama shou/garlic/evoo.
I just did the onion bread from the book Rawvolution, it's nearly identical to this, the only difference seems to be this one makes a larger batch and the proportions are likely a bit different but it's the same ingredients and similar ratios.
It's the first time I use my dehydrator in over a year, the house had been in renovation and anything that had a fan got caked in renovation dust so needless to say I couldn't use it for a long time.
Im glad I found this recipe. Im going to try it this week. Yum I love savory foods.
I've got this recipe in the dehydrator right now. First time since last winter I've used the excalibur, feels good to have it on.
I trudge the road of happy destiny in the sunlight of the spirit!
