You can blend the brazil nuts first with water in a food processor if you don't have a strong blender, then add your dats, raisins and carob or you can sub raw cacao nibs. Sweet limes are similar to lemons/linmes however they don't have that sour mouth puckering affect, they are rather sweet, like the name! All the seeds can be blended if you prefer a smoother consistency, I just like to have the nutty pieces in there. I can't remember off the top of my head what size the pan is is, but it is non stick and about an 1 1/2 inches deep, and maybe 7x12?? I'll have to check when I ge home and let you know.

I forgot to ask a few questions: What are sweet limes? How do the Brazil nuts process with the other ingredients? What I mean, it seems that it would be difficult to blend those ingredients to a uniformly blended mixture. Does it easily process? Can the walnuts and sunflower seeds be soaked and some of them blended into the mixture? What size/type of tray do you use?

This really sounds good. It reminds me of the brownies from Glaser Farms in Miami, except those don't have hemp or flax seeds. They are delicious. I hope these are as good. Thanks for sharing!
