I don’t know about you but that title just makes me all giddy inside. Carob + almonds = heaven, in my opinion.

Not too long ago I would have thought you were crazy if you told me I would have a love affair with carob one day. I was a dark chocolate lady all the way and carob totally grossed me out.

When I started to realise my occasional poor sleep and crazy wired head space were due to my chocolate intake, whether it be raw cacao powder or the roasted, creamy 85% kind, I decided to give carob a proper shot.

As if I would ever go without dessert and sweet treats! Pfft to that.

After trying it countless ways, in avocado puddings, smoothies, with berries in ice cream , with coconut in bite size desserts and endless other ways, I was a total convert.

Today I am the biggest carob lover of them all.

The moral of the story: if you don’t feel good on chocolate, pretend you like carob until you do wlEmoticon winkingsmile2 Easy Raw Vegan Recipe: Carob Almond Love Cups.

Today I have another carob recipe to share with you that I totally adore. It’s fun, easy and quick to make and you may already have the ingredients on hand – they are staples for most clean eating kitchens.


Carob Almond Love Cups

Why Love Cups? Why not I say!


3 tablespoons of carob or cocoa powder (use raw if you want these raw)

1 tablespoon of coconut oil

10 tablespoons of pure water

4 dropperfuls of stevia (or more to taste)

¼ teaspoon of cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

20 raw almonds (ideally soaked and sprouted or fermented but just raw is fine too)


Melt the coconut oil if not already liquid in the oven or over the stove. Place in a bowl with the carob powder, water, stevia, vanilla and cinnamon. Stir well until smooth and there are no chunks of powder.

Add the almonds and stir once.

Place mini cupcake/muffin cases on a plate. Using a teaspoon, drop a spoonful of the carob/almond mixture into each muffin case.
