A deliciously soft and chewy carob cookie that’s 100% FAILSAFE/RPAH friendly and easy to make. Make a batch today and enjoy having a sweet (and safe) treat.

  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (or vanilla extract)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cup flour (gluten-free or regular all-purpose)
  • 1/4 cup carob powder
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F/180°C. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner and set aside.

  2. In a medium to large mixing bowl, combine the oil, sugar, egg, and maple syrup (or vanilla extract) and blend until smooth.

  3. Add in the flour, carob powder, baking soda, and a salt and mix until it forms a thick dough.

  4. Take 2-3 tbsps of dough and form into balls. Place cookies a few inches apart on your prepared cookie sheet and flatten slightly with your hands.

  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes (9 was ideal in our oven). They harden as they cool, so don’t overcook. It will come out of the oven looking soft and undercooked but this is a TRICK. Let cool for 2-3 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
