Frosted Carob Fudge Brownies (Vegan)
These carob brownies are delicious! They're great for people who can't (or don't) eat chocolate. Carob is completely caffeine free! While this doesn't taste exactly like chocolate, it does have a similar taste. This is also great for vegans, since it contains no dairy.
According to a Poll in 2003, it may help prevent certain types of cancers. Carob can also improve digestion and lower cholesterol. It is also low in gluten and sugar! Carob is a flowering shrub belonging to the pea family. Carob is also known as John's Bread or locust bean.
