Sometimes I like to lay off the Cacao powder, as it is a natural stimulant and if overused could make your adrenals a little unhappy. I like a break every now and then.
So I’ve been playing with Carob Powder instead, I love the taste of carob, its kind of like caramel, it;s a very unique sweet taste and I like to mix it in my sweet treats for that chocolate look!
These were delicious and named Carob Cinema snacks as I took them to the movies the other night and they are my favourite now, so I will be making them especially for movie nights, instead of popcorn!

The health benefits of Carob:
One of the benefits of carob in the diet is its effects on digestive health. Carob helps to regulate the digestion process, while serving as a natural anti-allergic, antiseptic, and anti-bacterial agent. It contains tannins that are rich in gallic acid, which give it its beneficial effects. Additionally, carob provides powerful anti-viral benefits that supply the body with essential antioxidants.In terms of other nutrients, carob boasts a significant amount of calcium.
