Return of the Posts

After not posting for eons, I finally got free and had the urge to make something. So I whipped out my food processor, some walnuts, carob powder, and raw agave, pulsed it up, then rolled the little truffles into raw cacao nibs or coconut. Delicious!

Exhibit 1: Cacao Nib Rolled
 Exhibit 2: Carob Powder Rolled
Exhibit 3: Coconut Rolled

Don't they look like little truffles or doughnut holes?

After last post's foray into raw chocolate, I did some reading up on carob and found that it is a natural emulsifier, which explains why the coconut oil did not incorporate into the carob powder. Bummer, but good to know. The raw chocolate will have to wait.
