Easy Carob Almond Freezer Fudge + Frosty Recipe

166 comments

carobfreezerfudgevegan

Oh do I have a fun treat for you today. It showcases one of my old favourites – carob. Have you tried carob powder before? The pods of the tropical carob tree contain a sweet pulp which is dried, roasted, and ground into powder form. Carob is caffeine-free and contains antioxidants as well as calcium, iron, potassium, and fibre. I love mixing a spoonful of it into my vegan overnight oats, banana soft serve, homemade almond milk, or tossing some into a smoothie for a natural sweetener. I usually buy it in bulk from Bulk Barn (a great way to sample it if you are on the fence), but certain brands like Bobs Red Mill also sell it by the bag in many grocery stores and you can also find it online.

Here’s the kicker –

carob powder is naturally sweet which reduces the need for a lot of added sweeteners in a recipe – a total bonus if you ask me. If you can get over the fact that carob doesn’t taste like chocolate, you are golden. Some people say carob has a flavour similar to dates. I think that’s a better comparison, but you really just have to try it for yourself!

The makings of freezer fudge…

In this recipe, I paired carob with a touch of cocoa powder to add some chocolate flavour. You really can’t go wrong when these two powders are combined as you get the sweetness from the carob and the rich chocolate flavour of the cocoa powder. Of course, if you want to skip the cocoa powder all together you can do that too. Or if you want to use all cocoa powder you can try that, although you’ll need to add more liquid sweetener to the recipe to make up for carob’s lost sweetness.

I worked off my favourite Seductive Raw Chocolate Walnut Freezer Fudge and this carob variation was born. This recipe has a fraction of the added sugar (about 75% less), but I promise you won’t notice anything is missing. Now that’s my kind of treat. Best of all it takes 10 minutes to whip up and only another 20 minutes to set in the freezer. The only downside is that the hubby keeps eating it all on me!

Carob Almond Freezer Fudge

Vegan, gluten-free, no bake/raw, refined sugar-free, soy-free

Ready in 30 minutes, this carob freezer fudge is low in sugar while still tasting quite decadent. Feel free to change up the nut butter, sweetener, and mix-ins as you see fit. The coconut oil is necessary in this recipe though as it helps solidify the fudge when chilled. It melts quickly so be sure to enjoy it straight from the freezer and don't let it sit on the counter for more than a couple minutes.

Yield
10 large or 16 smaller squares
Freeze time
20 minutes
Prep Time
Cook time
0 Minutes
Total Time

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup creamy natural almond butter (roasted or raw are both fine)
  • 1/4 cup carob powder, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
  • 2-3 tablespoons pure maple syrup (or liquid sweetener of choice), to taste
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free rice crisp cereal (to add crunch - optional)

Directions:

  1. Line a very small loaf pan (4" x 8") with plastic wrap for easy removal.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl until smooth.
  3. With a spatula, scoop the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth out.
  4. Freeze for about 20 minutes, or until solid.
  5. Slice into squares and enjoy! Store leftovers in a container in the freezer as it melts quickly at room temperature.

pssst – Bonus recipe alert! Carob powder makes a healthy “frosty” too. Just blend 1 large frozen banana, 1 1/2 tbsp carob powder, 3/4 cup almond milk, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 tsp cocoa powder, 1 ice cube, and 1 tbsp chia seeds until smooth, icy, and thick. Absolutely delish! It reminds me of the Wendy’s frosty drinks of my youth.

If I only have cocoa powder, can I use that instead of carob powder?

Reply

5 Angela (Oh She Glows) August 5, 2014

You sure can, but you’ll probably need to add more sweetener to make up for the bitter quality of cocoa powder. Just add to taste and you should be good!

I used cocoa instead of carob and chopped pecans instead of the rice crisp cereal with no more sweetener than 3 T of maple syrup, and it was delicious!

I love the taste of carob! I have gestational diabetes so I won’t be eating these for the time being (although if I left out the rice puffs and paired it with protein it might work…not worth the risk though), but I’m pinning these to whip up for when I get some kitchen time at some point post-partum…they look amazing.

Carob? Never heard of it! Eager to give it a whirl.

Love how your husband was gobbling this fudge down….translation, this IS really good. Because one thing I’ve learned, men do NOT fake it, when I cook something not so great….my husband can’t tell a lie. His eyes say it all! Love the idea of the gluten free rice crispy for that crunch factor, gotta have it =)

Wooah Ange, this sounds unreal! Love the simplicity of it and the low sugar content too! I really enjoy carob but haven’t had it in a while. I used to swirl it into Greek yogurt with some cocoa powder and cinnamon – so so tasty. Sounds like you need a new hiding spot so that you can keep some of the fudge for yourself! ;)

Carob… I really wanted to like it but I tried it literally one time after I got it from the health food store. No matter how much sweetener I added I couldn’t get over that ‘weird’ – I’m not sure how to describe it – taste. However, your recipe looks so promising I’m tempted to try it again. Yet I’m still scared…

I have never tried carob powder. It is one of those things that is on my list to try. I like that it is naturally sweet. I didn’t know that.

These look fab, especially with the addition of cripsy rice cereal. It reminds of the cripsy cakes I used to make when I was younger.

Carob always takes a little bit getting used to, but you’re spot on- it tastes NOTHING like chocolate! That’s like when people say that cauliflower “rice” tastes like real rice. Um no, BUT that doesn’t mean it’s not awesome in it’s own right. That being said, I think there’s a lovely little nook where carob and it’s tasty-sweetness belongs and this fudge puts a brilliant spotlight on it :)

I have to update… I’ve made these twice now! They are so, so rich and delicious. The 1st time I used 2 tbsp of maple syrup. The 2nd time I only used one (and I’m thinking of using none the next time around… They just seem sweet and rich enough without the need for added sweetener). I also added some chopped up raw almonds to the batter and then sprinkled some course sea salt on the top. Oh my goodness. Addicting!

I picked up Bob’s Red Mill Carob Powder – reader beware – it can make quite the mess! I’m not sure if it is because the powder is super fine, but I realized fairly quickly that I wouldn’t be able to store it in the original package for too long without everything in my pantry getting a fine dusting of carob!

I’m super excited about this recipe! I recently purchased raw cacao powder, so I think I will add that in along with the cocoa and carob powder. I’m finding with pregnancy that my chocolate cravings are becoming more of a daily thing than a “monthly” thing lol.

Hi Angela,

Oh. My. Drooool! Just made these and they are awesome!

I have to say, though, that I made some swaps to what I had on hand and to alleviate some pesky allergies I have. I used half the amount of cocoa powder and subbed in some instant hazelnut coffee powder for the rest. And I used chopped hazelnuts instead of the rice crisps.

The great culinary tragedy in my life is that I have developed an allergic reaction to cocoa. If the cocoa concentration is too high or I have eaten too many other foods that I have an intolerance for (the list is looooong and hard to avoid consistently without going insane) my face breaks out in an angry rash – so much fun! :(

In this tragic turn of events I have been experimenting with carob powder, but I have found it very, very hard to balance. In fact this is one of only two recipes where I feel like I’m eating chocolate and not a substitute.

So anyway.. This long rant was basically just to tell you: Thank you for sharing your amazing recipes and teachings :)

Love Kikki

Both of these recipes are fantastic!

I made the frosty today and it is irresistibly delicious! I even added 3 tablespoons of hemp seeds for protein and couldn’t taste it a bit.

I made the fudge a week ago and we’re both hooked. It is very yummy but much richer than I am used to and is strictly for nibbling. Is there anyone who thinks 1/4 cup applesauce could be subbed for 1/4 cup of the coconut oil? Would that ruin the texture when it froze?

I whipped these up in about five minutes flat. I used cocoa powder because I couldn’t find carob powder (wah wah wah!).

They were A. MA. ZING. Thank you!

I made them with refined coconut oil and loved them, I’ve added a lot more of the brown rice puffs to make it less fatty. Then I tired them with virgin coconut oil and hated them, they had a very strong aftertaste. I’ll stick with non virgin coconut oil.

Reply

107 Mara September 4, 2014

I think the quality of the coconut oil make a big difference. I find a lot of the cheaper coconut oils are often rancid from sitting on grocery store shelves for too long. Go for a slightly more expensive brand of extra virgin coconut oil. It should have no after taste at all.

Aaaah, finally something to do with that left-over carob powder in the bag of my pantry… :) I prepared it last week and had to hide it in little portions in the back of the freezer. (Whenever I hear a cheer from the kitchen, it’s a sign that another batch was found…)

I went with only one spoon of sweetener and puffed amaranth instead of rice crisps.

I needed to make a quick dessert for my kiddies. They loved helping me make these (and eating them too of course) with a couple of adjustments. I added about 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, only did 1 tbsp of carob and 2 tbsp cacao and a few drops of stevia to sweeten it a little more. Still very dark chocolately in taste with a kick of sweetness. Yumm!!! Our dessert for the next few nights. Thanks for the quick recipe!!

I used peanut butter in place of almond butter and doubled the recipe since I was making for a group BBQ. I was nervous about the plastic wrap, but it worked perfectly and didn’t stick :) these we such a hit!! The rice crisps added a great crunch. No leftovers sadly!

This was so super easy to make and I already had all the ingredients! I used cocoa powder instead of carob and I left out the rice crisp cereal (because I didn’t have any!) so it was just straight fudge! I’m not a huge coconut fan but I didn’t mind the flavor in this. It’s super silky and creamy and chocolatey!

Oh my goodness! This is so good. I gave up chocolate several months ago and have been using carob in everything. So I was thrilled to see your recipe. I just didn’t add the cocoa powder. This is the first freezer fudge I have ever made and I love it! The first time I made it (3 days ago) I used peanut butter, so yummy. Today I made another batch using cashew butter. Next time I’ll try the almond butter. Very dangerous. I want to eat the whole batch!

I have never used carob before, but I made these without the cocoa and they are very decadent and rich. They satisfy my sweet cravings for chocolate for sure. I will try it with cocoa next time. I can’t imagine them without the rice crisp cereal! This was quick and easy.

Another winner, Angela! I love carob, but haven’t used it in ages. This is a great recipe.

I actually substituted cocoa butter for coconut oil, and the mouthfeel is so amazing!

I just ate way too much of the batch on my own, but will be making these again for sure.

I used 2 T maple syrup, 1/4 c. coconut oil (by accident, but it worked), 2 T. of chia seeds and a handful of crumbled vanilla chex cereal. I froze for about 30 min and it was the perfect texture and sweetness. Thank you!

I grew up eating my grandmas delicious carob fudge during the holidays, it is still hands down my favorite dessert ever. Tasting carob inevitably reminds me of her. It took me years to start liking chocolate, and to this day I still prefer carob. I can’t wait to trythis recipe. Did you use raw or toasted carob powder?

I’m allergic to casein and was looking for a dairy-free alternative to Crunch bars. The ones I’ve seen in the store have been a bit pricey and smaller than a typical candy bar. These were even better! I had to wait until I got a chance to buy the carob powder at DeKalb Farmers Market on a trip to Atlanta, since a lot of things are cheaper there. I didn’t have almond butter, so I used peanut butter instead.

Thank you so much for this fudge recipe. I cannot eat chocolate– it is a migraine trigger. This is the first totally non chocolate dessert that I find really is chocolatey that I can eat a whole bunch of without worry! I don’t use any cocoa in the recipe, just keep it all carob. Thanks so much for giving me an easy, delicious and indulgent treat option.

I made these on the weekend! So quick and easy!! Delicious. I didn’t have any carob so I just used the recommended measurement of cacao powder. They tasted a little like chocolate crackles (Aussie treat) but not as sweet. My friends loved them. Will definitely make them again :)

Greetings! Thank you very much for this recipe: it is too delicious! Little rough when you don’t have a gall bladder, but worth it :). Subbed in a salt free roasted smooth sunflower seed butter for the almond and it was fantastic. Used the full amount of maple syrup and salt, with raw cacao powder: salty sweet to the max :).

Hi Angela! I rate this as a 10! I have been trying to get off Chocolate, because of the double amount of caffeine (caffeine & theobromine). This is perfect! I did change the recipe a little, though, I left out cocoa, used honey, instead of maple syrup, increased peanut butter to 1/2 cup, and added 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes.
Sooo Delicious!
P. S. Love all your recipes! Keep posting new ones!

(Avoids coconut like the plague) so, more for me! I used agave nectar as it’s all I had in the cupboard, but it worked great! Will try maple next time to see how it tastes. Thanks for the recipe!

This recipe sounds great but so many of these clean food recipes use almond butter or a similar nut butter. What could I replace it with so people who are allergic to nuts can enjoy these. I think tahini would be far too over powering.
Does anyone have any ideas please?

I just made your carob frosty. Oh my! Thank you so much! This might become my new dessert. I added a couple of Medjool dates only because I had started making another recipe and then discovered I didn’t have all of the ingredients. But, Yum! I didn’t have frozen banana and I can’t wait until next time to freeze my banana first. I might let it sit a bit, too, to let the chia gel, if I can wait that it is. I appreciate the carob recipes, and look forward to trying the fudge.

Dear Angela,
a few days ago I made this fudge – it’s delicious! (I’m from Germany and don’t use a cup to measure so I took way too much rice, but still it was very tasty) I’m so happy I found this recipe because I try to eat as less cocoa as possible. I suffer from neurodermatitis and quit eating sugar, milk, wheat and spicy things. Thank you for your recipes and your inspiring work!

I’ve never made a recipe comment before, but I had to express my gratitude for this one! I’m recently on an anti-inflammatory diet for health reasons, mourning the loss of chocolate and sugar in my life, and have been struggling to find dessert recipes that aren’t just like “heat up an apple and pretend.” I took one bite of this freezer fudge and almost wept with joy. Thank you.

For folks in similar situations: I left out the cocoa powder and subbed 2 tbsp brown rice syrup for the maple syrup. Had never tried carob before, but the effect was plenty chocolatey for me.

I made this this morning, but instead of using coconut oil, I used coconut butter that I’d made from dried coconut. It seems to be staying solid in the fridge, and I’m fairly sure it’d be ok at room temperature. Though I doubt it’ll be around long enough for me to test the theory.

165 Samia June 21, 2016

Many thanks for an incredibly delicious dessert recipe. My substitutions were as follows:

*I poured the mixture into muffin tins lined with paper liners.

*I used peanut butter instead of almond butter (it’s cheaper).

*Instead of rice krispies, I used Nature’s Path Amazon flakes, which I crushed with a rolling pin.

*I used refined (tasteless) organic Spectrum coco oil.

But the basics are there, and thank you so much!!!
