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.

I just made this last night. It is super good! Love it with my green smoothie. Thank you!

Just finished dehydrating, and they are absolutely wonderful!

I live in Hawaii and am wondering how long something like this will keep for and the best way to store it.

I’m going to make this tomorrow and plan on slicing into portion sizes, then stacking most of them in a freezer ziplock after wrapping them in wax paper. I live in Florida, and these have to at least be kept in the fridge.

That’s one of the few downfalls of raw foods: every other living thing (including mold and bacteria) think it’s good food too!

Hi Susan: do you soak the almonds and sunflower seeds??

Love your recipes!!!

I am very impressed with this recipe!
I made a small amount of Macademia nut butter and it made the flavor burst.
Then I tried a small bit of mac nut butter with a drop of agave and WHOO HOO! Love in every bite!
I must confess I made a small piece with just butter for my husband and snitched a bite and it was very good too.
Might I say “Well done Susan”!

This looks amazing,I am going to try it in the next few days.
Just wondering what is the best way to store it?
And how long can you store it for?

Is there anything I can substitute for almonds !? I am nut free-gluten-dairy free! I know what a booze.

Hi there. We are a nut free house due to allergies. Could the almonds in this recipe be substituted with something else? Maybe pumpkin seeds? Thanks :)

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

Emily January 20, 2014 at 5:33 pm

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