Recipe Directions

1. In the food processor, puree the dates and then add the coconut oil. It is hard to get a good puree, but it doesn’t need to be perfect.

2. Then add the coconut to the puree and continue processing.

3. In a bowl, mix everything else with the mixture.

4. Roll the balls in the nuts.

Carob is not chocolate. The name of the recipe is confusing. :( I've bought raw carob - yes, it's with flour at the health food store. If you use raw cacao powder, start with a little & add it to taste, because cacao is very bitter & needs a lot more sweetening than the same amount of carob would.

No!!! Don't refrigerate!!!! They get all hard and they lose flavor.

No offense intended, jessca - I was clarifying for whoever asked if carob is raw cocoa. Thanks for the recipe :)

carob, chocolate. whatever. all i care about is the brown bitter flavor. and carob doesn't cause your cells to make epinephrine and cortisol so it wont keep you up at night.

I'm sure cacao would work just fine; this is a very loose recipe. I think I actually may have used more like 4 tablespoons of carob, I wasn't measuring. Maybe try 2-3 tablespoons cacao and see how that goes?

marionavalleygirl: carob is a chocolate substitute. i think its caffeine free. its not always raw, you have to check. you could use cacao too if you like. the best way to buy carob is in bulk at a healthy food store, otherwise you'll be paying a lot.

hey jessica, could I use fresh ground cacao powder in place of the carob? I know carob is rather mild in comparison and I'm wondering about adjusting the quantities...

This looks very good and I have everything to make this but the carob powder. I never bought it before. I looked online and it's $20-ish. Is this a raw version of cocoa? I'll check my natural health food store down the street for carob; in chain grocery stores is it usually by grains and flour or (?) Thanks!
