Rated 5 out of 5 by Foxtop from Modified recipe but results are AWESOME I didn't have the recipe handy so went from memory so mine is a bit different, but the results are fabulous. I put in raw almonds first and blended them until well crunched up but not powdery fine. Then added raisins, dates (probably more dates than called for--I didn't measure), and semi-sweet chocolate bits. Blended on low with tamper until product came together well. Comes out of container easily. I formed portions into balls as shown and wrapped each so they'd be handy to grab and go. So delicious, it's hard to eat only one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Reka from A simpler version-very sweet and tasty My first recipe with the dry container. Very simpe recipe, very clear instructions, thanks! I did not have vanilla extract so used rum extract. Also did not have dates so used 3 cups of raisin, did not have walnuts so used 2 cups of almonds, and 1 cup of shredded coconut. Also did not find cocoa powder so added 1/4 cup of cocoa-coconut oatmeal instead. The result is perfect, and it was made so fast! this machine is awsome saves me lots of time. Also the cleaning program is great, although I found it strange that it did not stop after 1 minute like the first time, but ran for about 4 minutes, after which I shut it off manually. I do not know if it is normal, however the container was perfectly clean, even under the blades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MD12 from Very tasty - also with a tiny modification I omitted the walnuts. I added 10g desiccated coconut and 1 tablespoon cacao powder. Taste delicious!
