Cacao (Carob) Mint Cremes

Jump to recipe

This is a great tasting healthy version of traditional chocolate mints. The recipe originally came from Everyday Raw Desserts by Matthew Kenney. I made a point of trying it out first, especially since I wanted to offer you something festive feeling like chocolate but without chocolate (cacao), especially for those sensitive to chocolate, including myself, this holiday season!!! Note: to make this a lower FODMAP recipe, replace cashews with walnuts or pecans!

Here is what I changed: obviously, there was chocolate maple glaze in which I used carob powder instead cacao. Since carob is sweeter and does not have the bitterness of cacao, the cremes came out really sweet. You may love it just that way. Being Polish, I tend to find all American desserts appallingly sweet, even the raw/vegan ones. So next time I make it, I will personally decrease the # of sweetener.

If you would like to learn more about health benefits of carob versus cacao, visit a different recipe blog where I explain more details about the difference:
