And don’t forget dessert:

Spiced Carob Cookies – more spicy goodies for the holiday season. Mix in some honey or a vegan sweetener and go to town. Oh, and they’re grain-free.
Avocado Carob Mousse Pudding – avocados are also in season, so this is a definite one to try. Dates, honey, disguised avocado…what could be better? We’ll be cranking this one out this week.
