I'm wondering if anyone on this forum has tried to make carob or honeylocust bars before. I've seen one recipe for carob bars in an online video, but it uses coconut butter (not coconut oil), so the recipe would not be good for anyone wanting to find an entirely locally grown substitute for chocolate. Most other recipes I've seen call for pre-made carob chips, so they're not an option for anyone wanting to use his own carob powder.
I'm hoping someone here has an alternate recipe for carob or honey locust bars that uses an alternative binder to hold the bars together: maybe tallow, lard, ghee, or butter.
By the way, I am currently planning on making honey locust powder from a full bag of honey locust pods I've collected this Fall.
