Carob Cookies


Carob has become a popular chocolate substitute also known as 'healthy chocolate'.
Although it has a slightly different taste than chocolate, it has only one-third the calories, is virtually fat-free, is non allergenic, has abundant protein, and has no oxalic acid, which interferes with absorption of calcium.
Carob has excellent nutritional value. Along with up to 80% protein, it contains Magnesium, Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, Potassium Manganese, and the vitamins A, B, B2, B3, and D.
