This is another option for those who cannot eat chocolate. Carob is dark and rich, and sweet. It looks like cocoa, but does not really taste like chocolate, in my opinion. However, carob is good in its own right and these have a very pleasant flavor. These are made very similar to my Butterscotch Brownies.

You can normally find carob powder in the baking section of major supermarkets and health food stores.
