    Directions:

    Mix carob or cocoa powder and Stevia Blend into almond butter until it is stuff. Roll into 10 little balls and then roll those balls into coconut until coated.

    Caution: Carob is not allowed on the diet and don’t even attempt to eat something like this until 6 months into the diet or until you are basically “symptom free.” Almond butter contains molds which can feed candida. Making fresh almond butter is best because it contains less molds.

    Raster how about cacao powder. It has no caffeine in it like carob or cocoa powder. I think it would be a better choice. Cacao has no caffeine in it and has a lot of antioxidants. It would be great for our immune system. I still cannot find anything bad with it. Check out this website:

    I found some other websites too. It looks like it does not have caffeine in it but Theobromine, which is easier on the nervous system than caffeine(some website say this others do not). It seems like their is different view out there. “There has been some debate as to whether or not caffeine really exists in chocolate. Some scientists believe that it is the theobromine which is solely responsible for its caffeine-like effects.”

    Just interesting information that I thought someone might want to read up on. I really do not know what to believe since one websites says “Cacao usually contains about 1% theobromine. Theobromine is an effective anti-bacterial substance and kills streptococci mutans (the primary organism that causes cavities). Theobromine is a chemical relative of caffeine but is not a nervous system stimulant. Theobromine dilates the cardiovascular system making the heart’s job easier. This is one of the major reasons why cacao is an important part of a heart healthy diet.”

    Pretty much I am confused what to believe. lol

    Thanks

    Sorry guys for posting wrong information. I am just in the process of learning about much of these things. There is not really a difference between cocoa or cacao. They are just different names to represents the almost the same thing. However, some people think “cacao powder is much better for you, the main differences being that ‘cacao powder’ specifically refers to raw, unsweetened powder. ‘Cocoa powder,’ on the other hand, may still have a very small amount of cocoa butter present to enhance the flavor subtly.”

    I haven’t tried the recipe or am planning on it, but if you have a birthday or a special event, this might be a good item to have once every few months. You are welcome to make your own alternatives of this recipe of course.

    Not everyone is completely hardcore on the diet so just wanted to share a possibility for later in the diet for others to aspire to.
