Chatfield's Carob Powder and Carob Chip Brownies

NOTE .. Although I was sent these product/products free of charge, I was not paid for my review.  All opinions are my own.

I love Chatfield's Carob powder and their Carob Chips are to die for. They taste more like chocolate than any brand I have tried.

Chatfield's Carob Powder contains roasted carob powder.....thats it.... And if you have an obession with chocolate and are not able to eat it for health reasons, Chatfield's Carob is going to ring your bell. I don't even miss chocolate since I started using this Carob Powder a few weeks ago
I use the Chatfield's Carob powder in my creamy buckwheat for breakfast, it tastes almost like coco wheats. I personally think it tastes even better than coco wheats.

I gave my Husband a few Chatfield's Carob Chips to try and he loved them. This is coming from someone who does not like eating healthy.
Now....for the recipes.


Flax Meal Brownies Made With Chatfield's Carob Chips
2 Cups Flax Seed Meal
1 Tablespoon baking powder
20 Single serving size Stevia
5 beaten eggs
1/2 Cup water
1/3 Cup oil
1 Cup Chatfield's Carob Chips ( I used more because I just love these)

Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare pan (a 10X15 pan with sides works best) with oiled parchment paper or a silicone mat.

1) Mix dry ingredients well
2) Add wet to dry, and combine well.

3) Let batter set for 2 to 3 minutes to thicken up some (leave it too long and it gets past the point where it's easy to spread.)

4) Pour batter onto pan. Because it's going to tend to mound in the middle, you'll get a more even thickness if you spread it away from the center somewhat, in roughly a rectangle an inch or two from the sides of the pan (you can go all the way to the edge, but it will be thinner).

5) Bake for about 20 minutes, until it springs back when you touch the top
6) Cool and cut

  2. Hi Kathy,
    Thank you! These brownies were very good. Even Hubs loved them.

    If you click on one of the links in the post, it will take you to the Chatfield's site. There is a link there to CONTACT. You can give them your zip code and ask the nearest store to carry Chatfields, or you can click to buy online.

  3. After looking at your brownies, I went out and found Chatfields Carob powder. I tried your recipe last night and they are so good. I can't believe how much this tastes like chocolate. I also made myself a glass of chocolate rice milk to go with my brownies. So good!!

  4. I love your carob recipes and am new to the candida cleanse.my concern with the chips is that when i went to the chatfields site the ingredients contain beet sugar and i'm wondering if this would not be ok since any kind of sugar is a no no..also they contain soy lecithin and i've read that soy is a no no as well..maybe i'm being too paranoid? ha..this is a hard road,especially in the beginning..:)
    i love your site btw!

  5. Angela,
    They do have the chips with beet sugar but they also have Unsweetend Carob Chips with no sweetner added. The chips have about 5 carbs per serving.

    You are right, this is a hard road. I still have to watch everything I eat like a hawk.

    I do use the soy milk sometimes. I also use unsweetened coconut milk.

    Don't you just hate having to read labels all the time? Kinda sucks to be us.

    can you use butter instead of oil? if so how much?

  7. I haven't tried using butter but I am almost positive you can. I would use the same amount if I was doing it.

  8. thanks terry! i'll try the unsweetened chips..do they taste a little like chocolate even when unsweetened? just curious:)also,i have a bunch of almond flour,do you think i could substitute that for flax meal or should i just buy the flax meal? i've spent soooo much money on food and ingredients since i started my cleanse,it's crazy how expensive getting rid of candida is,when all of the food i ate to get this way was so cheap.ha..

  9. Angela,
    For your first question. Nothing tastes like chocolate except real choclolat.....but it is a close second and I have learned to really like the taste. I just kind of tastes like chocolat..... I guess I am not explaining it very well.

    I don't think the almond flour would work in place of the flax meal. I buy flax seeds and grind them myself, I am not sure if it is cheaper but I think it might be.

    I know all to well how expensive it is to get rid of candida.

    I don't know what antifungal you are taking.... if you are doing it with herbs, I found something that works really well. I tried cayenne pepper and it seemed to work better than the pau d arco. I also used tumeric which worked well but not as well as cayenne. I have been going to do a post on using cayenne pepper but haven't yet. You may not be able to tolerate it so be careful.

    My sister used real garlic, she went around smelling terrible. When we were going to be around her, we had to tell her to stop. You would not believe how bad she smelled. LOL it was cheaper though.

    Oh....before I forget. The flax gets really thick and you have to almost form it on the parchment paper.

  10. Oh Angela,
    I just used the cayenne pepper that I bought at Sams Club and I found tumeric in bulk somewhere.

    It was really cheap compared to buying antifungals.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Thank you so much for all of your help and advice! You are amazing! I am already feeling so much better after only 4 days.. Haven't had any die off as of yet.. I am taking CandiGone which has antifungals in it but I have heard of drinking cayenne pepper in hot water with lemon juice and I may try that as well...We have a weekly Saturday farmers market here starting in October and it's a great source for organic,local,low coast veggies and such so when that starts things will get a little easier..
    Thanks again! I t is SO nice to have someone to talk to! My husband is working out of town for 3 months so I'm doing this alone,which in some ways may be easier because if he were here I'm sure he'd still be buying Doritos and Reeses for himself.haha.

  12. Angela,
    You may laugh, but I took about 1/4 or so teaspoon of the cayenne pepper and ate it just like that. Believe it or not.... I think it was healing my stomach.

    I will have to get the recipe from my sister that she makes for a cold. She drinks it like tea. She says it really works when she has a stuffed up nose. I think it had cayenne in it also.

  13. I may try just doing that then..i'm not too scared:) i'll let you know how it goes..i bought some oil of oregano today as well..
    I also got carob powder today that listed only carob as the ingredient,but when i looked at the nutrition info it says it has 3 grams of sugar.i'm thinking in moderation that will be ok but i'm wondering if you waiting a certain amount of time into your cleanse to eat carob?

    ReplyDelete
  14. P.S. I promise to stop asking so many questions! LOL

  15. Angela,
    I was also worried about the 3 grams of sugar (I think that is per tablespoon) in carob. I didn't use it until I was able to start on the fruit.
    Good Job buying the oil of oregano. It really worked for me....Hope it works a well for you. If I remember right, you don't have to worry about your body becoming immune to oil of oregano.
    Oil of oregano will also help kill any parasites you might have.

    Please.... DO NOT FEEL YOU ARE ASKING SO MANY QUESTIONS!!!
    If you live in the US and would like to talk by phone, let me know. I know how depressing candida can be. We need to help others get through this.
    There are so many people out there trying to rip us off that it gets frustrating.
    Talk to you later.. Terry

  16. Thank you very much for the help!I'm fighting the urge to make carob anything right now,because of the sugar content but it's really hard to resist!
    oil of oregano is going great so far and i made a cayenne and lemon water drink today..only burned for a second:)

  17. Angela,
    How much longer before you can get back on the fruit? 3 weeks can seem like a year. I think I was off fruit for a few months. I was really afraid to try it again.

    I loved the oil of oregano. I think it worked the best of anything I used. I am going to use it if I get the flu or sore throat. They say it works like an antibiotic.

    The cayenne will help heal your stomach if you have leaky gut. I either have leaky gut or food allergies and maybe both.

    I am going next month for a scope and a colonoscopy to make sure the candida is out of my digestive tract. It can be out of the blood and still be in the digestive tract.

  18. I'm not sure on the length of time before i can have fruit..monday will be 7 days..but i already feel so much better! more energy,skin isn't splotchy on my face anymore, my halitosis seems better, i'm sleeping without sleeping aides and in general in a much better mood..these are all of the reasons i started the cleanse in the first place..well,most.there are some i didn't list.anyway.just amazed at how much better i already feel..i've read some fruits can be added in after a few weeks so i think i'll just wait and see. i'm going to see an my acupuncturist soon,if i can afford it:( and he's usually a really good guide as to how things are going..

  21. Thanks Angela,
    I hope I have good luck. With candida, it seems that I can think I am good one day and the next day I am doing terrible.

    I mostly have good days, I think my bad days might be food allergy related but I will wait and see.

  22. does anyone know if there is a definite accurate test that shows candida overgrowth and/or the extent? has anyone tried the urnie test or program by dr. biamonte? someone posted something about a colonoscopy to see candida?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Kimmy,
    I don't think there is an accurate test for candida. Most Doctors don't want to be bothered with testing... probably because they know nothing about candida.

    I had a scope of my stomach that clearly showed candida, the Doctors told me it was stomach abrasions.

  24. Just found your site. My journey began in 2001. But was only diagnosed w/fibromyalgia and chronic myfoscial pain in 2007. And then voila! I find out this past April 2011, I have candidaisis! Explains why I was not fully healing even after treatments my doctors had me on. Looking forward to following your site!

  25. Welcome to you Livingraw!!
    Candida has been a very trying illness for me, especially when I found out if you have candida, you have parasites. Now I am battling parasites too.

    How are things going for you?

  27. What an amazing and brilliant recipe! I love that you use flax meal since I am allergic to almonds, can't use coconut flour, etc.
