My creamy not-ella carob butter—a decadent high-protein treat!
This was one of the top recipes favored by my recipe testers. What’s not to love? It’s creamy, dreamy, and rich. One tester’s only complaint was that she couldn’t stop eating it straight from the jar! This recipe is migraine-friendly because I use sunflower and hemp seeds instead of hazelnuts (all nuts can be migraine triggers). Carob instead of cocoa powder (chocolate can be a trigger). Stevia instead of sugar (sugar is inflammatory and migraine is an inflammatory condition). A small amount of coconut oil adds rich creaminess. Coconut oil is rich in MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides), which are excellent for the brain. This is also shelf-stable, meaning it doesn’t need refrigeration. So you can keep a jar in your desk at work and enjoy it on apple slices or gluten-free crackers when you need a snack.
