Brownie Balls or Bars
by Rod Rotondi

 

 


Editor’s Note: These brownies are so easy to make and very healthy. You don't have to avoid treats over the holidays or any time of year. Indulge in this tasty healthy alternative! The good news is that you don't need to stop at one!

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.

About the Author


Tireless traveler and culinary eclectic, Rod Rotondi has used his unique experience and perspective to translate world Organics into delicious and affordable raw, organic and vegan offerings. His three Los Angeles area Leaf Organics restaurants, which are set for national franchising, are leaders in the raw food and green movement. Rod’s burgeoning wholesale business, offering an array of raw and organic entrees, wraps, desserts and drinks, is prominently featured in So Cal at such retailers as Mother’s Markets, Rainbow Acres, Erewhon and Whole Foods Markets. And seeking to enlighten the public at large, this socially conscious entrepreneur is also working on a series of “Raw” uncookbooks, a DVD series and a television show.

Changing the world one bite at a time has become Rod’s approach to social activism. “Everyone has control over what they put in their mouth and these choices make a huge difference for our shared environment- our biosphere, as well as our individual environments- our bodies! Choosing organic, vegan raw foods is not only supporting our individual bodies with optimally nutritious foods, but supporting the growth of the whole organic and vegan industry- basically, our health and the health of our planet.” His restaurants are also some of the greenest in the world, recycling and composting all materials, using biodiesel in the delivery vans and utilizing compostable to go containers.
