These carob muffins follow a simple recipe yet they’re soft and flavorful. The basic muffin base is easy to make and it can be flavored with a variety of mix-ins. For this recipe, we are using blueberries but feel free to use your preferred fruits such as strawberries and figs. The raw carob powder lends these carob muffins an indulging light flavor profile. However, if you’d prefer a more defined carob taste, please feel free to use the roasted carob powder from The Australian Carob Co.
