Recipe: Brownie Balls or Bars

Recipe: Brownie Balls or Bars

Caution! Seriously addictive! These are sort of a cross between a Tootsie Roll and a traditional brownie.

Makes 24 balls or bars

2 cups chopped dates
1/2 cup carob powder
1/2 cup cacao powder
2 cups ground Brazil nuts
1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup grated fresh coconut for garnishing (may substitute dried)
Cacao nibs and/or goji berries for garnishing (optional)

1. Combine all the ingredients except the coconut and garnishes in a food processor and process until smooth.

2. Roll the dough into w-inch balls. Roll each ball in coconut, then in cacao nibs, if using, then press a goji berry into the top, if using. Place the balls on a baking sheet, and chill them for 2 hours. Alternatively, you can spread the dough about 1/3 inch thick on a baking sheet, sprinkle with dried coconut, and press in cacao nibs and/or goji berries, if using. Slice into bars and chill them for 2 hours. To extend the shelf life of the balls or bars, you can dehydrate them for 4 to 6 hours,until only slightly moist.

I just made these this week, very good. I had to play around with the amount of almond butter, maybe it was the type I used, but otherwise very easy and quick to make. Thank you for the recipe.
