Recipe Directions

1) Pour all ingredients in a food processor with the S-Blade attached and mix until mixture is smooth (won’t be wet) and starts to ball up.

Note: In my case, it did not ball up completely, but that is ok. The food processor just could not mix it any more, then it was ready. Do not add more liquid than what required by the recipe because it will turn out to be wet instead of smooth and dry.

2) Remove mixture from food processor and press into a square or round glass or plastic dish.

3) Freeze until firm, but not frozen (about 45-60 minutes), and then slice.

It keeps refrigerated up to 3 days or frozen for about a month.

Jirizarry's Thoughts

By jirizarry

(Adapted from www.therawtable.com) I found the original recipe at www.therawtable.com but I adapted it. I used carob powder (no cocoa) and added maca and mesquite powder for an extra rich flavor. I was amazed by the result when using carob, mesquite and maca powder. It is like a carobe brownie mixture. It is delicious, sweet, not to sweet, and creamy flavor. One even does not notice it contains raisings. I found this mixture also could be used as a pie crust. I was hesitant to use walnuts, as the recipe calls for, because I find then to have a strong flavor, but it does not taste to walnuts at all. The flavors of this recipe blend very well into a one flavor mixture.

awesome. I didn't have any other powder but the cocoa so that's all I used. I used maple syrup instead of agave, didn't have any. but turned out GREAT! Sweet dark chocolate gooey greatness!

Your welcome. I use maca in shakes, cakes, pies and in everything I want to have a creamy flavor or to make mixtures thicker.
