Smart Sweet: Superfood Carob Squares

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

I love carob but I have refrained from eating store bought carob for years due to the processed hydrogenated oils that they commonly contain. So here is a healthy, homemade, super charged version of the old carob buttons. This is also something different from other cacao chocolate dessert treats you’ve probably tried (although you can easily use cacao in this smart sweet if you prefer). This is jam packed with nutrients and antioxidants and it’s yummy, addictive and really easy! Enjoy!
