Instructions

  1. Add beans, dates, and vanilla to Twister jar and blend on a Low speed for 15 seconds, then a High speed until beans and dates are blended into a paste. This may take up to 2 minutes.
  2. Add oil, cocoa, and sugars to jar and blend again on a High speed until all ingredients are incorporated. Turn lid counterclockwise during blending.
  3. Press into 8-8-inch baking pan and chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  4. Cut into 1x1-inch cubes before serving.

Notes

To make in FourSide or WildSide+ jar, use 3-4 tbsp. of a liquid sweetener in place of dates (like honey, agave, maple syrup) or date paste, put all ingredient into jar and blend until combined. Start on a low speed and gradually increase to a high speed. You may need to stop blending and scrape the ingredients back down to the blade.

You can omit brown sugar and powdered sugar and use other sweeteners in their place. You may want to experiment until you get the right taste (about 4 tbsp. of honey/agave and 1/2 tsp. stevia work great!).

 Add your favorite nut or sprinkle with coconut flakes for an extra special treat!

    This recipe is made using our Twister jar which has a Patented Twister lid with tines so, when you spin the lid, the tines force the ingredients on the side of the jar back down to the blade. You can learn more about the Twister jar here: http://www.blendtec.com/jar…

    what do you mean about turning the lid during blending?

    My blender doesn’t have speed settings like 3 and 7. What are the settings that I use for a Classic 570 (Costco) machine?

    How much would I have to scale this down for the Mini Twister Jar?
