I finally tried them b/c I just got a Vita-Mix.
I almost wept from joy during my first bite. :D
I did a bit of a variation and it seemed to work well. I'm bringing them to my raw pot luck tomorrow night and will be sure to tell everyone it is her recipe.
Here's what I did...
1 cup walnuts
1 cup dates
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
1 T coconut butter
1-2 t water
blend in Vita-mix
took mixture and rolled into balls - like a truffle
rolled some in coconut flakes
I think for tomorrow I will roll some in the cacao powder too.
Thanks RP and have a wonderful December - you RAWK and are such an inspiration to all of us!

I bet that dried raspberries or cherries would be good in these, or nuts.
How about making a holiday assortment of truffles?

Excellent idea bittersweet!
Get a decorative box and some tissue paper or celophane type paper and put in the truffles
-rolled in cacao
-rolled in coconut
-rolled in chopped nuts
-mixed with dried fruit or rolled in chopped dried fruit
Any other ideas?

I think you should seriously consider starting a business and selling these brownies in different flovours. I can be a huge success! I can help you with logo/package design.

Do you use a food processor or Vita Mix? I read both in this strand and since they are supposed to be more on the dry side, I assume a food processor??

when I made my first batch of these little delish treats, they came out a bit dry. Now I add a bit of agave and coconut oil while mixing up the dough and roll them in coconut flakes or almond meal. The coconut oil gives them a nice flavor too and together with the agave just the right feeling of moisture. They are soooo GOOD! But I can't eat more than one or two, they are really rich. If I have three, that's a complete meal substitute to me.
I've made these twice so far and am loving them. I used the above recipe but used 2 T coconut oil (not sure if that's the same as I have heard of a solid butter) and no water. I then roll in coconut flakes. Yummy! I put them in the fridge for a bit to harden up and they are very very rich. I use the cacoa powder, not carob.
eta: I don't have a vitamix but I do have a K-tec total blender which is another brand of high powered blenders. Not sure what the difference is between them but I would NOT try this in my K-tec. I make it in my food processor. I first grind the walnuts, then add the rest of the ingredients. You'll have to scrape the sides a few times to make sure it blends up nicely. Super easy and super fast!
