I love carob also called (Ceratonia siliqua) and it’s commonly substituted in place of chocolate for people who may be sensitive to chocolate or who prefer to avoid its naturally stimulating effects. For a 100 gram serving, carob has 4 grams of fiber, 360 mg of calcium, and 850 mg of potassium. These are a delicious fun treat, dessert or snack on the run as it includes healthy fats and protein from the addition of nuts. For an even more chocolaty taste, you can easily substitute the carob powder with cacao powder. For more Smart Sweet recipes, see our list of healthy desserts.
