Bringin’ Carob Back – kicking off this fun month of carob sweets and treats with a delicious collection of carob recipes from a talented group of bloggers and creators!
Quite possibly my favorite month of the year – I love what October smells like. Crisp, cool days, with a smoky cozy feeling in the air. Warming scarves, boots, fun sweaters… and Halloween. I love Halloween.
October, at least for me, is really the beginning of the holiday season, and treat making, really. From Chocolate Skulls filled with Ginger Wasabi to a Haunted House made from Protein Cookies, I love Halloween.
I cannot wait to show you what I have made for Halloween this year! So many fun things already, sweet and savory. Some of the sweets (and quite possibly a savory!) will be made with carob, the unsung hero bean that often acted as proxy for chocolate in our house when I was a kid.
Carob has a unique and naturally sweet flavor unlike any other, and brings benefits – high in calcium and fiber, low in fat, and packed with antioxidants. It comes in powder and chip form, and is very versatile. and tasty – very tasty.
My dear friend Tess loves carob just as much as I do, and we’ve been talking about it for a while. For the month of October – just in time for tricks and treats – Tess and I are Bringin’ Carob Back. We will both be sharing our recipes, tips and tricks (treats!) with you all month long. Today I am kicking things off with a Carob Collection – some of my favorite bloggers and their carob recipes – I want to make each one.
do you like carob? which recipe would you make first?
