Basic Brown Bread

By Naomi Poe
Makes 16 thickish slices or 32 very thin ones

This mild bread is slightly sweet and whole-grain flavored.


1 cup water
1 cup sunflower seeds, hulled
1 apple - I prefer Rome for this
1 small summer squash
¼ cup black sesame seeds
1½ cups flaxmeal, very finely ground
½ teaspoon sea salt


In blender, blend water and sunflower seeds until smooth. Add the apple and blend until smooth. Add the summer squash and blend until smooth. Add the sesame seeds and blend briefly.

Pour into a mixing bowl. Add the flaxmeal and salt.

Spread onto two teflex sheets – spread to 3/8th inch thick or thinner, if preferred. Score into slices.

Dehydrate at 105 degrees for 4 hours, or until the top is dry. Flip over (you may want to separate them at this time) and dehydrate for another hour or so (you’ll need a bit more time for thicker slices).
