Carob flour or powder is a great cacao alternative. It’s made from dried, roasted carob tree pods, it looks a lot like cocoa powder, and if you’re trying to cut back on the amount of sugar you consume, you can use carob powder as a natural sweetener in baked goods. It has a unique and slightly sweet taste and is rich in fiber, calcium, copper, potassium, manganese, and vitamins B2, B3, and B6.
