This recipe came about after I craved something sweet but still wanted to feel as if I was being a good girl! If you’ve read my recent post Diary of an Intolerant Mum: The Test Kit, you’ll know that I’ve had to cut out dairy and various other things from my diet. This factor contributed to my urgent craving. I had recently brought some Carob Flour from Foods You Can and at the time was both excited to use my new ingredient but also scratching my head as to what exactly I could use if for. I had a create splurge in the kitchen, these are my favourite bursts of energy, when I’m not quite sure what I’m making but my gut tells me it’s going to be good. I didn’t disappoint myself this time! These are deeply rich in flavour not too sweet and two’s enough to bury any craving.
