This offer ends tomorrow, Tuesday March 6 @ 6pm Est. so act fast to receive your free carob powder. Click here for details.

She told us the inspiration for creating this recipe was having this 'wonderful carob to play with', & also 'celebrating 9 years of eating organic, live foods' this week....

Recipe Courtesy of: Lynn Asch
5 Tbsp. raw, organic coconut butter

2 cups raw, organic shredded coconut

1 cup truly raw carob powder

1 cup raw, organic hemp seeds

1 cup chopped raw, organic Medjool dates

1/2 cup raw, organic cashew butter

1 tsp. vanilla bean powder

pinch of sea salt

     Gently melt coconut butter till it just dissolves, and set aside.  Put coconut into food processor, and process till finely cut.   Pour it into a mixing bowl.  Add the carob to the coconut and mix well.

Add the hemp, dates, cashew butter, melted coconut butter, vanilla and salt to the processor, and buzz till it forms a smooth paste.  You may have to stop and scrape it down a few times to do this.

Then add the paste mixture to the coconut and carob in the bowl and mix well till it's all combined.  It'll be sticky.

Put it into an 8" or 9" square (or round) pan that's been lined with waxed paper, and pat the mixture down so the top is even and smooth.  Cut it into the shapes you desire with a spatula, cover the pan and refrigerate for several hours, or overnight.

When firm, pop out as many as you want at one time, keeping them cool. ENJOY!

To health & delectable foods that taste great & are good for you!

*Please mention FREECAROB16 when ordering. This offer is good for the 16 oz. Truly Raw Carob Powder only.*
