This is a recipe adapted from the book "Everyday Raw" by Matthew Kenney. In the original recipe he uses raw cacao powder, made from raw cacao nibs (raw chocolate).
This was a fun recipe to make. It takes a little time to get the chips made, but the effect overall was worth it. We later used them to make double carob chip cookies. Yum!
Homemade Carob Chips
(Ready to go into the dehydrator)
1 cup maple syrup
1 cup carob powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Place all ingredients in Vitamix and blend until smooth. You may need to add some water a little at a time to get the blades to move freely. Place mixture into a piping bag (I used a zipper type quart bag, and then cut a corner off) and pipe out small chips onto a teflex sheet. Dehydrate overnight at 118 degrees. Keep in refrigerator in sealed container until ready to use. Makes about 2 cups or more.
