Carob Nutty Cookies

Have you ever wondered if there’s something crunchy, delicious and so simple you can bake it in 5 minutes? If yes, keep reading..I’ve got you, lazy bakers!

One bite and you’ll feel heaven in your mouth….

The first time I made this recipe was a year ago and everyone at home loved them. Somehow with all my experimental baking,  I forgot about them.  Yesterday, while I was doing some spring cleaning in my files, I found this old recipe of mine and I decided to do it again. It was so worth it! It was hard to take the photos while everyone was eating them out of the oven. I had to bake another batch just so I could show you the end result…family!

Well, take a good look at them! Don’t fool yourself, these cookies aren’t just another recipe of chocolate cookies. They’re something slightly different and darker…. Carob.

It has a deep brown color and a delicate aroma. I’m sure if you give it a try, you will love it as much as I do…The secret for these cookies is not only the carob but the combination of the nuts and the lemon zest ….You’ll be wowed by how well they match!

It’s both a delicious and an easy option for Easter!
