These are no-bake brownies that have carob powder instead of cocoa. They're much healthier than regular brownies. Good for hyperactive children and very easy to make.

Wow this recipe was so good! I made some slight modifications though. I added raw coconut and flax seed in place of sesame seeds. Thanks for the tip. But to keep them from crumbling I added raw almond butter. Then after I pressed it all in the dish I poured a 1/2 cup of distilled water over the top and stuck in the freezer for 15 minutes. YUMMY for a starting raw foodist. Read More

As a healthy alternative bars are amazing! However if you're just looking for whatever tastes the best these probably aren't for you. The recipe can use some changes: I replaced the carob with cocoa replaced the oats with granola replaced a portion of the nuts with shredded coconut and added 4 Tablespoons peanut butter and 1/4 cup water.

Yuck! All I can say is Yuck. My 10 year old begged me not to ever make it again. I could stomach it with a ton of honey but plain is horrible Read More

I really liked these. I used almonds instead of walnuts grinded in the blender with the sunflower seeds. Also i used regular chocolate because I had no carob on hand. I also added some peanut butter like others suggested. Read More

These are great. Our little girls even love them! This is a great recipe to start with the possibilities ARE truly endless. Definitely NOT a BROWNIE reminds me more of an energy bar. We've substituted oat flour for all of the carob added some protein powder and coconut and they were amazing. Get Creative-these are so good. We make this recipe frequently. Read More

These would actually be healthier with cocoa. Carob has a lot of fat in it when we were kids my mom was a health nut and basically ruined our childhood with that nasty stuff it wasn't until we were grown and it was too late that they started reporting that carob wasn't very good for you. Read More

Amazing. We loved them. My daughter even burned the sesame seeds and put them in anyway (definitely NOT recommended) but they were still excellent and I can imagine variations and possibilities. Rice syrup is a super substitute for honey too. Read More

I really liked this recipe. I modified it to my own taste a little cashew butter flax seeds less walnuts some rice crisps in the end. The biggest flaw I see is calling it a brownie its a little misleading to me it seems more of a Carob Chew.. Read More
