One thing we like about this recipe is that it is really simple and made with ingredients that most of us have on the shelf. If not, check out our resource page.

We were very pleased with the results of this bread, it came out a little cheezy with a lovely pepper flavor!

We used the spices cardamom and cayenne for something a little different, and we like those flavors for this bread.

Please feel free to use any spice of your liking.

Ever since getting more into raw foods and playing with our dehydrator we have come up with so many versions of breads, crackers and biscotti among other snacks. You can see our top recipes in  our cookbooks. 


Raw Pepper Sunflower Bread Recipe

Raw dehydrated pepper sunflower bread. A fun and healthy way to enjoy sunflower seeds making “cheese sticks” with them that are dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, and grain-free!

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 2 cups sunflower seeds, grind into flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup flax meal (grinded flax seeds)
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 pepper (we used an orange pepper)
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. Place all ingredients, except water, into a food processor (or a blender would be fine too) and puree till combined. Slowly add in water till everything looks combined. Bread batter will be thick and a little sticky.
  2. Spread the pepper sunflower bread batter onto a dehydrator sheet and shape any way you would like.
  3. Next, place into dehydrator at a temperature of 110 degrees. Let dehydrate overnight, or till you reach your desired texture for your bread.
  4. **we left ours to be a little soft and moist in the inside

What if I do not have a dehydrator? Can I bake it? Yes

Follow the same directions to make the bread and spread onto a lined cooked sheet. Spread into any shape you would like. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes. Or again till desired bread texture is achieved. Depending if you want it really crispy or a little soft.

Store bread in the refrigerator!


  • can replace sunflower seeds with any nut you would like
  • can replace spices with any of your preferred seasonings
  • can replace pepper with a tomato or zucchini
  • can replace tahini for a nut or seed butter


Till next time,

Would love to hear/see more about your BodyRock progress. I love BodyRock and done a few of the workouts, but was always curious as to what results I would get by sticking with it more consistently.

Pure2 March 31, 2011 - 7:59 am

Yes Erika we will do a review soon!

Gayla April 10, 2011 - 5:09 pm

Is that one orange bell pepper, or some other kind of pepper? Beautiful recipes! I love the site. Have tried many of the recipes, and even shared them successfully with my non raw family. Thanks!

Pure2 April 10, 2011 - 7:03 pm

Gayla – thank you for sharing! yes orange bell pepper, but could use any pepper.

Kathy June 7, 2011 - 2:20 pm

My only problem is, it’s sticking to the parchment paper…
This is the first raw recipe I tried though:)

Meagan June 8, 2011 - 7:00 pm

LOOKS GREAT. I wish I had a dehydrator!

Kiki April 3, 2012 - 2:33 pm

This looks scrumptious, quick question here. I do not own a dehydrator and would have to use the oven method however, couldn’t I put this in my over at the lowest setting, or do I have to bake at 350 degrees if I use the oven method? I’m fairly new to the raw food lifestyle and I want to be sure that if I bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes that this bread will still be considered as “raw”. Thanks so much for your help!

Lori and Michelle April 3, 2012 - 4:51 pm

Kiki – oh yes you can put oven at the lowest setting and let bake slowly. just will take a few hours. hope this helps.
