Raw Apple Walnut Bread

I found a delicious recipe for savory onion bread on Kristen's blog and have since modified it several times for delicious new treats. My current favorite is this delectable Apple Walnut Bread. The best part is that it has SO much added nutrition! I just had to share it with all of you : )

2 lbs. net weight, peeled and cored apples
1 lb. net weight, zucchini
6 oz. grated carrot
3/4 cup walnuts, ground coarsely
1/2 cup hemp protein powder
3/4 cup chia seeds
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. cardamom
1 tsp. alcohol-free vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup agave nectar or date paste

Process apples and zucchini in food processor until they are medium to finely chopped. They can be fairly fine but you don't want to process them until they are mushy or watery. Place them in a large bowl with remaining ingredients and let stand for 5 minutes so the chia seeds can soak up any of the excess moisture. Spread to about 1/2 inch thick on two dehydrator trays with paraflex sheets. Dehydrate for 1 hr. at 130 degrees. Score into 9-16 pieces per tray then reduce temperature to 105 degrees and dehydrate for another 8 hours Flip bread onto mesh trays then dehydrate for another 6-8 hours depending on how soft you prefer it to be. I like mine softer so I turned the temperature down to a little under 105 and dehydrated it about 8-9 more hours on the last round. I store mine in the freezer and eat it plain or for a special treat I put some of my Lemon Cashew Cheez on top, yum!
