Carob powder is the roasted, ground pulp (or kibble) that surrounds the carob beans, aka locust beans, within the pod. Part of the pea family, carob trees (Ceratonia siliqua) originate from the Mediterranean. Carob has a naturally sweet taste that is quite earthy. Although carob is often used in place of chocolate, the flavour is much milder and does not have the bitter notes of cacao. This roasted carob powder is full flavoured with a deep, rich brown colour, sweet aroma and fine texture. Enjoy it in beverages, raw treats, confectionery and baked goods.

How to Use

Carob powder is delicious in hot or cold beverages. Add a spoonful to smoothies, or dissolve in a little warm water before adding ice and your favourite chilled dairy or plant milk. For a substitute to hot chocolate, simply replace cocoa with an equal amount of carob. As carob is naturally sweet added sugar is not necessary, although a dash of honey, coconut nectar or maple syrup does add extra flavour.To create a lovely non-dairy chocolate substitute, combine carob powder with an equal amount or coconut oil, with a dash of maple or coconut syrup. Dip fresh fruit in melted mix (try banana, mango and strawberries), stir through mixed seeds and chopped nuts and spoon 'clusters' on to grease proof paper to set; or add dried fruit (Inca and goji berries are great) and set in a slab.This raw carob powder is also wonderful for raw food treats and home-baked goods. To use carob powder as a replacement for cacao powder in recipes, substitute 1:1. If replacing solid dark cooking chocolate, use 2-3 times as much carob powder by weight.
