Super Amazing Carob Brazil Nut Fudge

This is my take on a recipe I found in Gabriel Cousen's book Rainbow Green Diet. His recipe was different from mine, but the idea is the same and it works really well. Try this for am amazing sweet treat that is sweetened only with 2 dried apricots. You might think like I did that this couldn't possibly be sweet enough......wrong! This is perfectly sweet enough, however, if it doesn't taste sweet enough for your palate add a drop or two of stevia.

Divine Carob Treat

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/2 cup Brazil nuts soaked for at least 5 hours
2 dried apricot -- soaked with nuts
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/8 teaspoon african bird pepper or cayenne
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup carob

Place all the ingredients in the bowl of your food processor and blend together.

Once its all blended and smooth, place into a brownie pan and smooth it out and then cut into small squares.

Place it in the fridge or for even quicker setting the freezer. In the freeser it will take about 5 - 10 minutes to set and in the fridge mabe 30 minutes.

Carob is a legume. It tastes almost exactly the same as chocolate but is more healthy and has non of the caffeine that chocolate has.. Carob is high in vitamin B1 and B2 and also is high in vitamin A. It is said to relieve diarrhea and also help with nausea and vomiting
