Hyper Active Brownies

These brownies gave me the hugest rush of energy. I almost got light headed from how rich they are.

1/4 cup of coconut oil melted
1/4 cup of carob powder
1/2 cup of dried fruit
2 tablespoons of agave nectar
Two handfuls of goji berries
Two handfuls of cocoa nibs
1 1/2 cups of walnuts
A few spoonfuls of chocolate sauce to coat the top

Process the walnuts and coconut oil in a food processor until very finely ground and paste like. Add the carob powder, agave. and dried fruit. Process more till thick and fudgey. Hand mix in the goji berries and cocoa nibs. Press the brownies into a small container so that the brownies are about an inch high. Cover the tops of the brownies with a few spoonfuls of chocolate sauce and spread evenly on top to create a thin layer. This will give the brownies a traditional baked look and add extra chocolate. Refrigerate till the mixture sets. The consistency should be hard and crisp on the outside and soft and fudgey on the inside. This isn't a cake like brownie but more of a warm moist brownie. Cut into small brownie bites! These brownies are dense.

My friend wanted to add that these brownies made him extremely sexually aroused. A non-raw foodist and my best sympathetic skeptic. He was floored by the varied sensations he felt eating cocoa nibs for the first time!
