Carob "Mock-lates"

Carob Mocklates

I originally found this recipe on ThePaleoMom.com and made a few tweeks. So easy and delicious!

Ingredients:

2 cups extra virgin coconut oil
1 cup carob powder
2 Tbs. Grade B maple syrup (or honey, or a few drops Stevia), or more to taste
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts (raw or lightly toasted)
1/2 Tsp. vanilla extract
Teeny pinch salt

Method:

Place the coconut oil in a food processor and whip until smooth (about 2 minutes).

Add remaining ingredients EXCEPT the walnuts (and continue to whip until smooth and well-combined (you might need to scrape the sides of the bowl a couple of times).

Take out the blade and stir in the walnuts.

Spread into a 9"X9" baking pan, or put into silicone molds like the heart-shaped ones I have, and chill in the fridge for at least an hour. 

If using a baking pan, cut into a squares and enjoy!

*Store in the fridge or freezer!
