i thought they were ok. i love carob, but they seemed greasy with the peanut butter and the coconut didnt stick to the outside really great. they seemed to get stiffer as the hours have gone by. my 12 year old who loves sweets/pb said "mom they are a little too sweet, i think im going to get sick."
I have been looking for a sweet something to satisfy my cravings that isn't horrible for me, this is it! I used honey and substituted the sesame for Flax seed. The secret to getting the coconut to stick is to let the mix cool for a bit then roll them into balls and roll them in your hands with the coconut, a little pressure make the coconut stick. I compare these to truffles, you only need to eat 1 or 2, they are very sweet, I think you could cut the sweetener in half if you want.
Yum. We made ours with agave nectar, but no coconut. They are very rich, some hot tea or cold soy milk was a good accompaniment for us.
I can't eat chocolate and these are the next thing to it. Great recipe and satisfied my chocolate urge.
I have been looking for something like this to have a more wholesome sweet snack. When I get those chocolate and sugar cravings now I can eat one of these and they taste great. I used all organic ingredients.
Yummy, healthy, easy to make! I halved the recipe. It's been a while since I used carob and I was so pleased these tasted so good! Thanks!
A refreshing carob treat. So easy and delicious warm. Can't wait to taste them cold (they SHOULD be kept in the fridge, right?) Fudgey, reminicent of rasin. Fine w/out the coconut (or even sesame). I even gave it to the baby, he spit it out though, but its healthy enough... Even my daughter ate a couple...even my hubby ate them! ps, subed sesame seed paste for the pb and seeds...it works as well, but was quite rich and too sweet.
I made these with all natural chunky PB and honey, and I mixed the Bakers Coconut in because it wasn't sticking to the outside. Three stars are for how healthy they are, another because they are tasty and the fifth star is because my pickiest eater said to give them 10! (made for 'Please Review my Recipe')
