It’s widely known that chocolate is extremely toxic for cats and dogs. Luckily there’s carob, a sweet fruit that’s been used as a chocolate substitute for decades. Compared to cocoa, carob contains twice the amount of calcium and is fat-free. Carob is known to treat diarrhea in dogs and cats and is known to improve digestion and lower cholesterol. Cover and refrigerate the carob bars for up to two weeks.
3/4 cup Unsweetened Organic Carob Powder
1/2 cup Organic Frozen Blueberries, unthawed
1 cup Unrefined Organic Coconut Oil
2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
Microwave coconut oil for 10-15 seconds or until melted.
Combine carob powder, vanilla extract, and coconut oil in a large mixing bowl, whisk together.
Fold in the unthawed blueberries and set aside.
Pour the carob mixture into a silicone candy bar mold.
Place the mold into the freezer for 30 minutes.
Set out for 5 minutes and serve.
