I am allergic to chocolate and therefore have grown quite accustomed to carob. I thought I would share how I adapt chocolate recipes to carob for anyone else out there that might not be allowed chocolate. It is pretty simple you just substitute the cocoa powder for carob powder but halve the quantity that the recipe requires.

This brownie recipes is from a cook book my primary school put together for their fete one year. It is very simple and always turns out very tasty.


200g butter
1/2 cup cocoa powder (or 1/4 cup carob powder)
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 cup flour
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Melt butter and cocoa or carob powder in a large pan. Make sure this is done on a low heat so you do not boil the mixture.

Add salt, sugar and vanilla and stir well

Stir in sifted flour

Add eggs and stir in. You will then have a nice glossy looking mixture.

Tip into a tray and bake at 180 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Once cooked let them cool a little to make them easier to get out off the pan. The recipe calls for them to be iced but I just dusted them with icing sugar. Team with a cup of chai tea and you have yourself a delicious afternoon tea!

The brownies sound interesting, but where in the world did you get that mug???


I do personal swaps.

the mug is from Spotlight. I love that it is knitted. I makes having a cup tea seem just a little bit more cosy.
