  • Carob powder – 1/4 cup (25g)
  • Cacao powder – 1/4 cup (25g)
  • Maple syrup/honey – 1/4 – 1/2 cup
  • Tahini, hulled – 1/4 cup (70g)
  • Coconul oil, melted – 1 tbs
  • Filtered water – 1 tbs


  1. Place all ingredients in a medium sized bowl, and using a hand-held blender, blend until a smooth consistency is reached.
  2. If it is too thick add an additional tablespoon of water and keep adding until desired consistency is reached.
  3. Use a spread on toast or as a filling in scrolls and muffins and biscuits.

Tip: If you substitute carob powder for cacao powder you need to increase honey or maple syrup.
