Hi everyone! My apologies for being absent for a while. I recently took a Drivers Ed class and that left me unable to blog for a while since I was constantly studying. But, since I’ve finished that class, hopefully I can resume my regular blogging ways. Anyway, on to the main intent of this post. Vegan carob fudge brownies. This is a well liked recipe originally posted on my previous blog. To view it, copy and paste the link provided: http://www.rosesnaturalsolutions.blogspot.com/2014/09/frosted-carob-fudge-brownies-vegan.html For those of you who aren’t familiar with carob, it’s supposed to be a replacement for chocolate, since it contains no caffeine. Although it doesn’t taste quite like chocolate, it does taste quite yummy!
And, for those of you who would like to know the health benefits, carob is said to possibly help prevent cancer, also improving digestion and lower cholesterol. So there you have it, a couple benefits of carob. Now, on to the recipe!
Carob Fudge Brownies
First, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1 cup coconut palm sugar
1 1/8 cup einkorn flour
1/2 cup carob powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup of coconut oil
1 tsp. of vanilla extract
1 cup of water (I prefer to use filtered water)
First things first. Using a medium sized bowl, mix the carob, flour coconut sugar, baking soda and baking powder. Melt the coconut oil until it becomes liquid. Using a separate bowl, add vanilla extract, water and coconut oil. Add the liquid mix to the flour mix. Stir well, leaving no lumps. Pour in a 9×13 inch pan, and bake for 25-30 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Frost brownies once cool. Note: recipe for frosting is provided below.
1/4 cup coconut oil (Not melted)
1/2 cup carob
1/8 cup wat
2 tsp. water (or until you reach desired sweetness)
“Cream ” oil and carob. Then add the honey, mixing with an electric mixer. Lastly, add the water. If frosting comes out too thick, add a little bit of water.
