Carob Powder comes from finely ground, dried and toasted pods of the carob tree. It is a healthy alternative to cocoa that's low in calories and contains no fat. Carob is an excellent substitute for chocolate or cocoa powder in cakes, cookies, and candy. To substitute Carob Powder for cocoa, replace one part cocoa with one and one-half to two parts carob by weight. To substitute for chocolate, use 3 Tbsp. Carob Powder and 1 Tbsp water in place of each square of chocolate.
