Carob is my new best friend! I’ve given up cacao for a while so I spent some time today experimenting with carob. And I just happened to make some magic this morning in the kitchen.
Raw Cashew Nut Carob Cookies
3/4 cup cashew nuts
1 Tablespoon of cashew nut butter
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup carob
1 Tablespoon of honey or maple syrup
a pinch of salt
Combine all ingredients in a food processor until well combined. It’s okay if the cashews are still a little chunky! If the mix is too dry, add more cashew butter or a little water but you don’t want it to be too wet either – you want the dough to be firm and sticky enough to mold into cookies. Shape dough into cookies shapes or roll into balls.
