    Thanks Emz  

    I had forgotten all about this recipe and your comment brought it up again.  I made them today - they cooked for 15 minutes fine but I ran out of brown sugar so only put in about 3/4 of the amount.  They tasted great.  I will definitely decrease the sugar by more next time to see how low I can get it.

    Thanks for this recipe. This is the first carob thing I've enjoyed. For anyone who hasn't tasted it, don't expect it to taste the same as cacao. I used 70g weetbix as that is what I needed to use up, so reduced flour to 130g. Had to take out of oven after ten mins as they were losing shape but taste oh so delicious. I wouldn't make any other changes though might reduce sugar if giving to kids more regularly. I also kept a couple aside and refrigerated instead and they were great as bliss balls.  Thankyou again.
