Delectable Carob Fudge

By: Meredith Deasley, RHN – Aurora, ON

Carob is a great substitute for cocoa if you are looking to reduce your chocolate consumption. It is similar in taste and appearance to cocoa, yet is caffeine-free.


  • 1 ¼ cups  maple syrup or fruit concentrate
  • 1 cup  sesame tahini or nut butter (or use ½ cup of each)
  • 1 ¼ cups  carob powder
  • 1 cup  sesame seeds or shredded coconut
  • 8-14 drops  peppermint extract
  • 2 TBSP  arrowroot powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Heat the nut butter and maple syup on low to medium heat until hot and soft.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients.
  3. Press the mixture into a lightly oiled 9 or 10 inch glass pie plate or similar pan.
  4. Press extra sesame seeds or coconut on top.
  5. Chill thoroughly in fridge.
  6. Cut and serve.
