Peanut Butter Carob Balls

As I’ve been learning to be gluten free, I have been bringing you the recipes and different ingredients I have been experimenting with.

Today’s focus was on carob, a fruit which pods are roasted. Carob is used as an alternative to chocolate. I just happened to have a bag of carob powder and wanted to experiment with it.

Ingredients

1/2 cup of carob powder

1/2 cup of honey

1 cup of crunchy peanut butter

4 teaspoons of sugar (optional)

rice flour for dusting

Instructions

Measure out the carob powder and add to a medium mixing bowl. Measure out the peanut butter and add to the carob powder. Stir the mixture until well combined.

Add the honey and mix until even.

I added sugar as I was giving this to someone who has never had carob before and wanted to mask the bitterness without compromising the flavour. This is optional and up to you.

If you have more honey I would recommend that. I just happened to have run out.

Roll into small bite size balls.

Then dust the balls with rice flour.

I personally like to keep these in the freezer to make them chewy. Again this is up to you.

Bon appetit.

      Haha! funny you should mention that. I had a half dozen left when I left for work last night. Came home and it turns out my boyfriend’s friends ate them all on me. Good news is he liked them.
