fudgy carob brownies like the ones from Crumb's Bakery in Athens, Ohio. Made with healthy whole wheat flour and adapted from a recipe in How it All Vegan.

This recipe confused me. The quantity of batter just seemed too little for an 8 X 8. I baked it in an 8 x 4 and had enough left over for two muffins, and the suggested baking time turned out to be correct, so I don't understand how it could possible fit an 8 X 8 and be of reasonable thickness. I also added one egg and found the texture to be very nice that way. Used a mix of honey and agave and it was way too sweet to my taste. Made it impossible to taste the carob or vanilla flavors. Next time I would try 1/2 cup instead of 3/4, or maybe even less.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all of your flours, baking powder, salt, and carob powder.
  3. Add in the honey, juice, oil and vanilla and stir just until combined. Don't worry if there are some lumps - it's okay!
  4. Spread into a greased 8*8 inch pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick or knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
