Sacred Challah

Ingredients:

2 C almond flour
1 1/2 C coconut water or raisin soak water
3/4 C golden flax seeds, ground
1/2 C raisins, soaked
2 t cinnamon
1 1/2 t Celtic salt
1 t nutmeg or pumpkin spice
3 grains buckwheat, soaked
1/2 C flax seeds, ground for cutting board
Optional:
1 apple, shredded
1/2 C almonds or pecans, soaked and finely chopped
1/3 C raisins, soaked

Directions:

Process raisins in a food processor with the “S” blade, transfer to a large mixing bowl and mix in cinnamon, salt and nutmeg.  Slowly add the flax meal, almond flour, buckwheat grains, and water. Add additional flax meal if consistency is not doughy. Form into two loaves and dehydrate at 145 degrees for 2-3 hours and then 115 degrees for 2 hours or until desired moisture is obtained. You can also separate dough in to three equally sized balls, roll into three strands, pinching them together at the top to hold. Braid the three strands until the end and then stick the ends under the bread and pinch together. Place on a dehydrator sheet and dehydrate for 2-3 hours at 145 degrees until the bread is a little crispy on the outside.  

Optional:

Glaze the outside of the bread with a few drops of olive oil before dehydrating. Or when bread is done, use a coconut cream icing.
