Carob Brownies

Carob beans, also known as locust beans, have been used for thousands of years, for everything from celebrating religious holidays to fodder for animals. Carob powder can be used like coco powder in recipes but it is not chocolate and if a chocolate taste is anticipated, one is likely to be disappointed. Yesterday I made carob brownies and ate them with Greek God yogurt. It was just a standard brownie recipe so I won’t bother writing it down. Carob is slightly sweet so I used a bit less sugar. I ground up almonds and substituted almond extract for vanilla. They were incredibly good.
