Today we have a sweet but not overly sweet carob chia cookies for you. It was funny how we decided on this week’s recipe inspiration from a fellow blogger. For some reason we just couldn’t decide what we wanted to make. Everything sounded good but nothing really motivating us to make until we browsed Ricki’s site for some low sugar recipe ideas. We knew we wanted to do something with carob but unsure of what. Ricki had this great carob low sugar cookie that sounded perfect!
We made some changes to the recipe to create a cookie that contains chia seeds because we just love chia seeds texture in our chocolate based baked goods
Both of those recipes we loved and were excited to try chia seeds and carob as a cookie!
