Carob Chip Cookies


WAY better than any sugar-filled, butter-based chocolate chip cookies.  I was on the hunt for vegan chocolate chips, but we stumbled across Carob ones instead, which instantly enticed us.  Being snowed in this weekend was the perfect time to make these, and it was tought to ration them out, especially since Jim was begging for more every 5 minutes.  I don’t blame him-they’re completely addictive and really sweet.

1 cup unbleached organic white flour

3/4 cup Carob chips (or any kind you want, really)

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup olive oil

1/3 cup pure maple syrup

3 tbsp carob powder (cocoa power is fine too)

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp sea salt

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Mix together all ingredients except olive oil and syrup
  • Slowly add in oil and syrup and stir again
  • Shape into balls, place on baking sheet and flatten
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes
