I can’t eat chocolate at the moment because it gives me insomnia and other issues. So, since I didn’t have carob chips, I decided to put carob powder in a cookie mix instead of cocoa powder. They turned out well. I really enjoyed them as well as my kids, and that’s saying something!
- 2/3 cup Butter*
- 1 cup Sucanat
- 2 Eggs, medium size
- 1 tsp. Vanilla
- 1 1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
- 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
- 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
- 1/4 cup Carob Powder
- 1/2 cup Nuts, chopped (optional)
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream together butter, sucanat, eggs, and vanilla. Add flour, salt, baking soda, carob powder and mix well. Add nuts if desired. Drop dough by the tablespoon about two inches apart on a greased cookie sheet or parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes. Cool for a minute or two before moving to a cooling rack. Enjoy!
Makes approximately 1 1/2 dozen cookies.
*Coconut oil can be used, but the cookies are much more flat.
