But do you really know how nutritious they are?

Raisins contain numerous nutrients and minerals that can provide relief from gastrointestinal problems, arthritis, kidney stones, heart disease and whole lot more. They are also loaded with high levels of catechins which are antioxidants that search for free radicals in the blood.

Here’s a full list of the ingredients you will need:

  • 200 grams of raw almonds
  • 100 grams of raisins (or dates)
  • 60 grams of flaxseed
  • 60 gram of psyllium husks
  • 25 grams of chia seeds
  • 200 grams of chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic

Directions:

Add almonds, psyllium, flaxseed, and chia seeds to a food processor and mill until you have a flour like consistency.  Put onion, garlic, lemon, sun-dried tomatoes, salt and any optional seasonings in a blender and mince for 7 seconds at high speeds.

Mix wet and dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and knead until you have a dough like consistency

Mold the dough into a large ball. Once the dough is compressed and holds together well, divide the dough into three small loaves. Place the dough into baking pans coated with extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil to keep from sticking. Press them firmly into the pan to prevent them from cracking or flaking. Then place the finished dough into an oven.

Make sure that all three loaves are placed on a raised cookie rack to help them ventilate while baking.  Set the oven at 100°C and bake for 3-4 hours.

Let the bread cool for 15 minutes and enjoy. This recipe can also be enjoyed raw as it does not use eggs or milk.
