Raw Food Recipe: Cinnamon Raisin “Toast”

by Susan on February 15, 2010

When the sun doesn’t come up until late, and I wake to a house that has a winter chill, my green drink is not enough to satisfy me. I have been working on a raw food recipe for a breakfast “toast” and finally came up with one I love.

This one is made with sunflower seeds, almonds, carrots, apples and is spiked with cinnamon and raisins! My recreation of Cinnamon Raisin Toast. Healthy, hearty and tasty, you will want to be sure to include this in your raw food recipe collection. The hazelnut butter is made the same way as the almond butter. I added 2 T of oil when processing.

Equipment Needed: Food Processor, Blender, Dehydrator

Cinnamon Raisin “Toast” and Hazelnut Butter

  • 2 C Almonds
  • 1 C Sunflower Seeds
  • 1 C Ground Flax
  • 1 C Purred Zucchini
  • 2 Carrots
  • 1 Apple
  • 1 C Raisins
  • 4 Dates plus 1/2 C Water
  • 1 t Cinnamon

Place sunflower seeds in food processor and process until finely chopped. Place in Bowl. Place almonds in food processor and finely chop. Place in bowl with sunflower seeds. Add flax and stir to combine. Process carrots and apple in food processor until you get a puree. Add zucchini puree, mix. In blender, blend dates with 1/2 C water until liquefied. You can soak the dates first to soften. Add to carrot and apple mixture, stir. Stir wet ingredients into dry. Mix well. Stir in cinnamon and raisins. Spread 1/4″ thick on non-stick dehydrator tray. Dehydrate for 1 hour at 145, reduce heat and continue to dehydrate at 116 for two more hours. Flip mixture onto screen, peel off non-stick sheet and continue to dehydrate for about 4-6 more hours or until dry but not hard. This bread will should be a little soft.

This looks amazing! Could it be done in the oven though? I don’t have a dehydrator :-(

Hi there! Is there anything I can substitute for the zucchini? (allergies), thx!

Hi there! Just curious if you peel the zucchini or not and what type of apple you used?

Hi Susan!
I am getting ready to make this today and wanted to know how many dehydrator sheets this recipe makes?

Oh gosh…I wrote that recipe 5 years ago! I am thinking from the looks of the ingredient list, probably 2. Cheers!

Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to include the nutrition information in your recipes??


Susan May 14, 2015 at 3:46 pm

Hi, Megan, I haven’t found an on-line recipe calculator that is completely accurate. You can get close to nutrition facts with many of the on-line ones. All you have to do is enter the ingredients. If something seems a little off, check it against another one. Cheers!
