Carob raisin clusters
I do so love carob chips! It brings me right back to some time in my childhood when my Mum was on a fad diet (it was the 80's, who wasn't?!) and she was trying to convince herself carob was a viable substitute for chocolate. Well, it isn't BUT it IS great all alone with no excuses. Today, I melted some and added a tiny bit of coconut oil, raisins, chopped peanuts and sunflower seeds for a snack. I LOVED IT! My kids, though, not so much. One actually spat it out, the rest just didn't eat more than one bite. I recommend you go to your nearest bulk food store or health food store and get a tiny amount - you will either love it or hate it. It's safe for dogs if you want to make a treat for Rex too. I've got to go now, my dough has risen.
