Suggested Use

Use in place of cocoa powder in your favorite recipes for delicious natural chocolate flavor without the fat, caffeine or theobromine found in chocolate. Carob isn't as rich as chocolate but it's actually sweeter. When cooking with Carob substitute 1.5 to 2 parts Carob Powder for every 1 part cocoa powder called for in a recipe. Due to Carob Powder's sweetness you may need to decrease the amount of sugar used.

  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. liquid vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup NOW Real Food Maple Syrup
  • 4 tbsp. milk
  • 3/4 cup non-instant milk powder

Fair Substitute for Cocoa Powder

Posted by Reviewer2509874 on Jun 05, 2009

Substitute for cocoa in chocolate cake. Use a full cup for a 2-layer cake if you want that sinfully-rich effect. However, be prepared to really play with a classic cake recipe to get a chocolatey flavor. Use less sugar, because carob is sweeter than cocoa. Add acidity and bitterness, because believe it or not, part of what chocoholics love about chocolate is that it has very complex components like that. I add sour cream and a tablespoon of instant coffee, then blend super-well. Remember, you can always use decaffeinated coffee.

rancid

Posted by Reviewer2492424 on Feb 28, 2012

I added stevia and milk but it was rancid -- had to throw out the entire bottle. I like Now Foods products, but after literally gagging on this one I'll definitely never buy this product again.

Great flavor

Posted by Reviewer2392378 on Jun 07, 2010

I love carob, and I was very impressed with this brand. If you expect carob to be the same as chocolate, it's not. It's much more "malty" and can be substituted where you'd use cocoa powder, but definitely isn't the same. I actually prefer carob to cocoa (no caffeine jitters!) and would definitely buy this brand again.

This does not taste good

Posted by Reviewer1036837 on May 08, 2011

I use a tiny bit when making chocolate, but you don´t need this. Tastes aweful on it´s own.
