I found this video which shows how to make a raw brownie and it has a few of the same ingredients:

Now I can just play around with the remaining ingredients and see what I come up with.

This has some of the same ingredients. I say you should just start some experiments.

Yup. I also found a recipe for the icing -- which apparently is where the avocado and coconut milk come in.

I bought pecans and dates at Whole Foods on Friday but didn't have time to experiment over the weekend. Maybe this week. (They were out of walnuts.)

I've made this a couple of times now, replacing the almonds with pecans (personal preference, I hate almond flavor. ( Due to a spoiled Almond Joy bar that I was forced to eat as a child.))

In fact, I'm making a big batch to take to my MIL's for Thanksgiving.

How were the raw, gluten-free brownies? I'm guessing they didn't taste like or have the texture of real brownies but were delicious in their own right (nuts and dates--what could be bad?!).

Exactly! I found that the quality of the dates made a big difference. The first trial batch I made I just used regular California dates. The patch I made for Thanksgiving I used organic Medjool dates; they were softer and sweeter and the brownies came out great. The trial batch was good; the Thanksgiving batch, heavenly.

They do have a bit of a raw taste to them for the first bite but after that they are just intense chocolate goodness.

Actually, the ones I get at The Plant taste like brownies. I wouldn't have known if I hadn't looked at the ingredients.
