Chicken Stuffing Bread (Dehydrated)

The flavors and texture remind me of bread stuffing for chicken. To convert the recipe to 100% raw, omit the bouillon and crushed cereal. I only had tomato-chicken bouillon powder in my food bin. The cereal serves as a solid leavener, and is optional. It’s best made with fresh celery; week-old celery is almost no better than cardboard. Any commercial oat flour should be fine, but it’s just as easy to grind oatmeal in a food processor. The coconut flour keeps the bread pliable; otherwise the texture turns a little hard and brittle after a long period in the dehydrator. I finely ground unsweetened shredded coconut in a food processor to make coconut flour. The 1-1/2 hour dehydration time is at a temperature of 150°F/65.6°C. A lower temperature of 125°F/51.7°C will preserve enzymes and vitamins better, but increase the time to between 2 and 2-1/2 hours.

– 125-150°F/51.7-65.6°C

  • 1 cup oat flour, coarsely ground (see text)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour or finely ground dried coconut (see text)
  • 1/2 cup very finely chopped or pureed celery (about 2 stalks)
  • 2 teaspoons tomato-chicken or other bouillon or 1 tablespoon soy sauce or 3/4 teaspoon salt (see text)
  • 1/4 teaspoon powdered chili peppers
  • 3/4 cup puffed wheat or puffed rice squares cereal – optional
  • 2 egg whites

1. Put puffed wheat or rice squares into a small plastic bag and crush with fingers or pulse a few times in the small bowl of a food processor.

2. In a small bowl, whisk the oat flour and coconut flour until well combined.

3. In a food processor, blend the egg whites and chopped celery until mixture is thick and foamy, about 1 to 2 minutes.

4. Add bouillon powder and chili powder to celery foam to flour and pulse a few times until combined.

5. Pour celery mixture into the flour and stir until combined. Add the crushed puffed wheat or rice squares and stir until combined.

6. Scoop dough into a greased 8-inch square pan. With the back of a spoon, press dough into bottom of pan.

7. Perforate dough every 1/2 inch with a 1/8 inch skewer. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 30 minutes.

8. Dehydrate at 150°F/65.6°C for about 60 minutes. Slice into 6 rectanges. Lift and transfer upside down to baking sheet covered with a non-stick mat. Slices should be at least 1/4-inch apart.

9. Continue dehydrating for another 30 minutes at 150°F/65.6°C.

10. Serve or store in an airtight container. The last picture below is the bread without a solid leavener (cereal). It’s a bit more than half as thick as the leavened bread.
