Article Excerpt:

I can't stop making these little things! Carob makes it chocolaty without chocolate, cashew butter makes it rich without dairy, and a little flax oil adds a tasty nutty flavor and lots of good omega fatty acids.  If it these little gems have omegas, then I can consider it a healthy treat and not just dessert!  Finished off with some crunchy rice cereal and a little stevia, these are tasty, crunchy, sweet treats that are sure to satisfy!

Carob Crunchies are the perfect thing to whip up if you need a quick treat to take along to parties and potlucks.  They are also super kid-friendly and easy enough that your kids could make them on their own!  Make a batch for book club, make a batch for girls' night in, make a batch for your kids' sleepover party.  Hell, make a batch for yourself and eat them shamelessly while watching Law & Order SVU reruns on Netflix (my usual M.O.).  Late night chocolate cravings, meet your match.

Hey, these would also be great as part of an Easter basket!
