Carob Bliss Balls

I have a confession to make.

I love carob.

Please don’t judge me but i’d choose carob over chocolate any day.

In case you haven’t converted to carob just yet, it has an earthy, caramel type flavour and variety of health benefits.

Carob is actually part of the legume family so it’s closely related to peas, beans and lentils.

Carob is a source of dietary fibre which keeps bowels healthy and also boosts the immune system. It also contains a variety of B-vitamins for energy transport around the body and cell rejuvenation and repair after exercise and physical activity.

I like a teaspoon of carob powder added to my morning breakfast bowl but one of my favourite ways to consume carob is in these bliss balls.

They may not transport you to a blissful beach but they will deliver a state of bliss; if even for a moment.
