I was browsing through our wonderful local bulk foods place this morning, and came across something interesting: carob molasses. I remembered hearing about it some years ago, but never had the chance to try it. Since carob is a diamond superfood for Gatherers, I bought a jar and brought it home. It's pure carob and water, nothing else. The taste is really good--sort of a blend of regular molasses and mild blackstrap with a hint of chocolate or cocoa, and sweet without being overwhelmingly so. I'm going to try it in my baking and see how it does.

I did a google search for 'carob molasses' and lo and behold, Amazon.com sells it through their grocery! They also had the cheapest price, about $5.50USD per jar for three jars.

Anyone else ever try carob molasses? If so, what did or do you think of it?

Just used a small amount in a batch of raspberry oat flour muffins. The carob molasses gave the muffins a really lovely malty-chocolately flavor--very mild, but the taste went well with the fresh fruit and the mellow oat flour. It also made the muffins brown beautifully. I'm hooked!

Thanks Lola--I should have asked Yaman about it

Brighid,

Carob molasses is one of my favourites. I just love it. Try it with tahini, excellent snack/dessert.

Cheers,
Yaman

It's worth waiting Lola'cim

In the meantime, maybe almond butter can be a good alternative for tahini
