What’s your thoughts on substituting carob for the cacao?
March 24, 2022
Carob powder, also called carob flour, is a cocoa powder alternative. It’s made from dried, roasted carob tree pods. Carob powder is often used as a natural sweetener in baked goods. It’s sweet and has a unique taste. Both Cacao and Carob have good nutritional profiles and taste somewhat similar. Like all edible plants, Carob is safe and healthy to consume. :)
