If you are looking for a healthy but decadent tasting treat, these carob balls are just the thing to make and take very little time to prepare besides. They are rather like a truffle, only denser as these little balls of bliss are made with peanut butter, honey and carob powder. Naturally sweeter than chocolate or cocoa, carob powder is made from the roasted and ground pods of a tree native to the Mediterranean region commonly known as the carob tree. Though carob is a member of the legume family, I'm not sure if the benefits of carob are any holier than the virtues of good quality dark chocolate or cocoa … but I do know I always lament the passing of the last carob delight of the batch.
