carob-coconut candy bars
A yummy raw alternative to chocolate candy bars. These are soooo creamy and buttery yet solid like a real candy bar. You can use cacao powder instead of carob (or half and half) for a more stimulating experience. I personally can’t handle too much cacao and I actually love the taste of carob. If you use cacao powder, add more sweetner (you can use agave) as cacao doesn’t have a natural sweetness like carob does.
½ cup melted cacao butter
2 tablespoon coconut oil
.33 cup carob powder
½ cup ground nuts
¼ cup goji berries or raisins
¼ cup shredded coconut
1 pinch fine sea salt
This recipe works best if you mix all ingredients in a bowl placed in warm water (keeps it from setting before you’re finished).
1. Melt cacao butter in a bowl placed in warm water. Measure the cacao butter after it is melted.
2. Add the coconut oil and stir until dissolved
3. Add carob powder, nuts, goji berries, shredded coconut, sea salt and stevia to taste (depending on your love of sweetness)
4. Pour the liquid mixture (it’ll be chunky if you added all ingredients but still a bit runny) into an ice cube tray or chocolate mold. Refridgerate for a few hours to set (or put in the freezer if you’re impatient). ENJOY!
