Carob Frosting

This works well on cake or brownies. Recipe adapted from Christopher Nyerges, the author of Guide to Wild Foods. A little information about carob:Today it is nearly impossible to avoid white sugar in any pre-processed or restaurant food. But not more than a few centuries ago, one of the major food sweeteners in the world was a type of healthful "chocolate" that grows on trees. It is believed that the fruit of this "chocolate" tree was used to feed Mohammed's armies. This fruit also sustained John the Baptist during his sojourn and meditations in the wilderness (Bible, book of Mark 1:16), and provided food for the Biblical prodigal son (Luke 15:16) who was hungry and without money. Spanish Civil War children who ate this fruit during the 1930s were able to remain free of malnutrition. As recently as WWII, isolated military troops and their horses on the island of Malta, and people in villages in Greece, credit their survival during the German occupation to the use of this "chocolate" tree's survival food. This "chocolate" tree is the carob tree (Ceratonia siliqua). The carob fruit is a dark brown, flattened leathery pod (or legume). Carob is a native to the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea, and is common in the Middle East. These are the areas where the best commercial carob is grown. The trees propagated there from root stock produce the superior carob fruit. Southern Californians and Arizonans know the ornamental carob trees which are so widely planted as street and park trees. Each leaf is alternately arranged and is typically pinnately divided into six to ten round glossy leathery leaflets. Each pod measures about 1½inches broad and four to 10 inches long. Carob powder (or flour) is produced by a continuous process of drying, grinding, and roasting the pods. The resultant flour has a versatile array of uses for those who have rediscovered carob's secrets. - Similiar recipes

Carob Peanut Butter Syrup

This recipe was posted in response to a request for recipes using carob. It comes from the cookbook "The Ultimate Recipes for Fitness", and looks like like a divine dessert. It can be served over ice cream or frozen yogurt, as a dip for strawberries, or can be folded into whipped topping and served as a mousse. I'm sure you could subtitute cocoa powder for the carob if you so desire. Prep time is an estimate and does not include time to chill. - Similiar recipes
Fruit Chewy Cookies With No Added Sugar

Fruit Chewy Cookies With No Added Sugar

These are a slight variation of a lovely cookie from a great diabetic cookbook called "Sweet & Natural: Desserts without sugar, honey, molasses or artificial sweetner" by Janet Warrington. I found this cookbook at a thrift store and have been meaning to try something from it. This is my first try. The original recipe lists carob powder as an optional ingredient. I decided to use it, but had to use cocoa powder as that was what I had. So feel free to leave it off. When you look at these cooled cookies the dates look like chocolate chips and my kids were slightly dissapointed when they realized they were fruit, but the enjoyed these a lot. A nice little fruity cookie which is quite sweet without any added sugar. Also, if you have over-ripe bananas which have not been frozen feel free to use those. I just have a bunch of bananas in my freezer. - Similiar recipes

Dairy Free and No Cook Chocolate Pudding

This recipe is so simple and easy?it takes only a few minutes (not including the coconut whacking). You can substitute carob for the cocoa, as regular cocoa powder is usually ground from roasted cacao beans and therefore not really raw. If you are using a Vita-Mix blender, you can add a bit of raw cacao beans to the blender in place of some of the cocoa powder, for a bit more intense flavor. You won?t believe that there is no cream or milk in this pudding. Very creamy and smooth. People are always shocked that there is no dairy in it. - Similiar recipes
