    Elzet, I just tried it with butter becausei can eat coconut oil. It was too salty, so you could probably use unsalted butter, or ghee made from unsalted butter if you can’t have butter. And Palm oil might also work because it doesn’t have much flavor.

    If you want it to seem more like chocolate you can use 6 oz raw cocoa butter instead of the coconut oil. Melt it under very low heat then add in everything else. It will firm up like a chocolate bar. Also, a sprinkle of a natural salt on the top of the bark is great too.

    sure appreciate your recipe for carob bark; & would love to see more carob recipes. Thank You, Draxe
    P.S…..I’m currently using your leaky gut formula, but struggle with diet selections since I live in a very rural area of Nevada…i.e. Medjool dates, is there a simple alternative.?

    • Valentina Sounds on

      Apple sauce is a great alternative to medjol dates. Any other “gummy” dried fruit will do, like raisins, apricots, but it will change the taste.

    I thought carob is a sugar and not keto friendly… I believe it’s on your list of things in your book to avoid if doing Keto, I’m just a bit confused…

      Carob powder is not a sugar. It is a cocoa substitute. My husband is on keto and loves the carob brownies I made. I am going to try the Carob Bark soon.

    I made this twice, the first time a double batch and all three batches came out the same with the surface turning white from the coconut butter
