    MissLinguist's Note:

    I got a Fabe's Organic Chocolate Raw Life Bar, and it was delicious. I tried to recreate it with this recipe, based on the ingredient list.

      Excellent, I was surprised it tasted that good. Most raw foods I make are just okay to pretty good...but this is excellent! I made two batches, spread out in a pan, sprinkled chopped walnuts on top to look more like brownies. They still taste more like chewy fudge, than a brownie but that are great! I would make again in the future when wanting something chocolate. And would recommend this recipe for anyone looking for a raw food dessert or not wanting refined sugar, dairy or flour in their brownies.

      Great treat for a chocolate craving! So easy to throw together in the processor, and a very forgiving recipe - substitutes don't seem to hurt the end result at all. I used a mix of different nuts and added just a bit of vanilla. Made bite size balls (well, MY bite size!) and ended up with 17 of them. Thanks Miss!

      Although it's not like grandma's brownies, it does curb the cravings for sweets and what's better than chocolate? I did alter it a bit, I used raw cashews (I had them on hand) and prunes instead of dates (again on hand) oh and instead of carob, I used 5Tbs of cocoa powder (again used what I had available). There is a lot of potential for wonderful additions to this recipe, next time I am going to try adding some cherries cuz we all know they go great with chocolate ;) I did coat the balls (mine were a tad too fudgey to treat as bownies) with coconut but am looking forward to more experimentations in the future. Thank you for giving me some more inspiration in the kitchen!
