    This looks great! My only concern is the very high volume of saturated fat, almost 200 grams for 2 servings. I know coconut oil is generally healthy but that seems like an awful lot of saturated fat. Any thoughts?

    I make a similar version with cocoa and some maple syrup to sweeten. Reduce oil by as much maple ( 2 or 3 tablespoons) way to go Dr. Axe! I should have known you would have the carob version. :)

    Omigosh – Love this! I followed the recipe, using Chatfield’s Carob powder, and it couldn’t be more delicious. I may use crushed pecans instead of coconut flakes next time. YUM!

    I am thrilled with your recipe. And i am not making many changed; excellent choices. I am 100% vegan. I was very unhappy with you collagen, it did nothing for me at all. And i did take it for 1 year. I feel if it didn’t help my hair grow or my skin made softer.
    I love carob power as well as the pure carob honey. My son sent me several different ones to try out. I no longer use dark chocolate; only carob for it’s great benefits.

    Hello Dr. Axe, I am searching for a recipe for just plain carob coating. I used to buy some “home made” carob coating from a place in Mansfield, Ohio but they do not make it any longer. Then I bought it from a place in Pa. who got if from a place that made it in Chicago. Now they quit making it. So I want to attempt to make it myself. Can you help me. don

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
