What’s so good about Carob powder? Carobs (which is plural because they are lots of them in a pod) are high in antioxidants, calcium, magnesium, potassium and is naturally caffeine free. Carobs also contain gallic acid – which is antibacterial, antiviral and antiseptic! Carobs are full bodied and naturally very sweet with a smooth malty taste.
How is Carob powder made? Carobs are grown on a tree and look like a big brown snow pea pod. The carobs are then separated from the pod, roasted, and finely milled. Australian quality is far superior to imported carob and is much sweeter as well.
How do I use Carob powder? Carob powder is a perfect substitute for cocoa or cacao in recipes. Adding carob in a 1 to 1 ratio in any recipe that calls for cocoa – but is naturally sweet so you should be able to reduce the added sugar! Make hot carob drinks, add to baking or icing – perfect for pancakes, muffins or smoothies.
Certified Organic Roasted Australian Carob
A healthy alternative to the classic chocolate crackle, this delightful little treat will make little tummies happy and give you the piece of mind that your little ones are getting the nutrients they need, without any nasty added sweeteners.
You will need:
1 ½ cups puffed quinoa
1 ½ cups The Wholefood Pantry Raw Almonds, roasted and roughly chopped
¼ cup Superfoods for Kids Berry Choc Chunk
¼ cup Superfoods for Kids C Berry Blast (optional)
200ml The Wholefood Pantry Coconut Oil, melted
1 ½ cups The Wholefood Pantry Desiccated Coconut
¼ cup The Wholefood Pantry Roasted Carob Powder
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Then place the mixture into cupcake cases on a tray and refrigerate until they are set.
Note: Carob tastes very similar to chocolate and is naturally sweet, that’s why we didn’t need to add sweetener. If not using carob, you may need to adjust the sweetness with brown rice syrup or coconut sugar.
