What I've been doing lately that works very well is diced sweet potato as a thick stew with carob, ginger, fennel seed, clove and cinnamon. Optional cayenne, fenugreek, olive oil or ghee. Makes a great 'base' (could probably make a large batch, puree and freeze or refrigerate.)

Options include stew meats/poultry, firm veggies, quinoa, onions, beans/legumes. For a sweeter stew add chopped fig (dry).

Turns out to be pretty versatile as a main dish/side dish option rather than dessert.

My mother used carob a lot when we were growing up.  One of our favorite breakfasts was carob milk, made with fresh raw milk from the dairy down the road (not knowing then that half of us were allergic to it), carob powder, honey, vanilla, and a homegrown egg.  Delicious.  Now I make it for my children using safe alternatives, of course, and they love it too.  My mom had a carob fudge recipe once upon a time, but she can't remember now what was in it or where the recipe came from.  Does anybody have any ideas about how to go about making something like that?

Can you buy locust bean gum by itself?

Not. In general, gums are not okay, but there are exceptions.

Ribbit I found one that sounds like the one you described

Carob Fudge

1 c. pure maple syrup

1 T. carob powder, sifted

1/8 t. sea salt

2/3 c. soy milk

1/2 t. vanilla

1 T. soy margarine or butter

1/2 chopped nuts

Combine syrup, carob powder, salt and soy milk in a deep pan stirring until ingredients are blended. Cook over medium-high heat until soft ball stage (tiny drops of the mixture will form tadpole shapes when dropped into cold water.) Remove pan from heat, add vanilla and margarine, stir until mixture is smooth. While still warm, add nuts, stir, and pour mixture onto a well buttered plate. Cut into square before the mixture completely harden ( this one doesn't have the gums, so thats good news)
& I'm sure you can change the maple syrup for agave nectar, if desired to do so.

I seen carob and heard about carob in the past, but I didn't know it was so good for us. I think I will stop off at my bulk barn and pick some up today. The carob fudge sounds delightful thanks for posting it.

That carob fudge sounds delicious.  I might have to try and make that.  Maybe that will soothe the savage carb/chocolate beast!

I put carob powder in my favorite muffins. Also, in my breakfast drink. I agree that it is very good for making the stomach feel "healthy." You really notice things like that after having a stomachache for decades. And, like others, I love Carob Extract simply drizzled over nuts! Delish!

Even though carob is superfood for me and never tried.
It is time to eat it now to gain strength after surgery.

Please advise me on raw carob powder vs roasted carob chip.
Which one would be more beneficial?

Raw carob powder is likely the purest source and roasted carob chips (although I'm not sure of the specific product) might contain a lot of additives you might not find beneficial.

Here's a way to make carob chips using just carob powder and coconut oil, unsweetened for
this recipe, but you could add any compliant sweetener of your own choice.
http://sketch-freeveganeating.blogspot.com/2010/12/homemade-unsweetened-carob-chips-vegan.html

I found this recipe in my files...I can't have coconut so I think I substituted ground nuts....haven't made it
in a long while..I think sesame seeds or sunflower seeds would be fine too.

1 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
2 teaspoons carob powder or unsweetened organic cocoa powder
1/2 cup raisins
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, divided
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (gluten-free, if desired)
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup finely chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, etc.)

Method:
Mix peanut butter, honey and carob or cocoa powder until well combined. Stir in the raisins and 2 tablespoons of the coconut. Stir in chocolate chips. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

Place remaining coconut, sesame seeds and nuts into 3 separate bowls. Using a spoon, scoop small heaps of the peanut mixture from the bowl; roll into 1 1/4-inch balls. Rolling is easier if you form a rough ball, roll in coconut, and then continue rolling into a more perfect shape. Roll each finished ball in more coconut, sesame seeds and chopped nuts. Arrange the balls on a plate, cover loosely and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Wow, all these recipes, sweet and savoury, sure sound delicious! thanks for the creative ideas ladies and gents - impressed!  

[I've recently bought some carob powder, so was interested in this post, because it would be a low fat alternative to made-up carob bars (Rh- A  nonnie can't do sugar or fat ). I've been adding it to a little raw cacao to make a little stimulating drinkie.  ]

I love carob. It is delicious stirred into tahini with a little beet syrup. Yummy! I just had a heaping half teaspoon of carob, a few drops of agave on it with a teaspoon of peanut butter! Why should we crave junk when we can eat like a prince/princess!! (I keep sifted carob handy in a spice jar.)

When I get really exhausted, sometimes I'll just stir a Tb of raw carob powder into a short glass of water.  It's not gourmet or anything but it does an amazing job of giving me a quick pick-up.
