CAROB

These glossy gummy hearts look like chocolate, but they are made of carob. Carob is naturally sweet, and has a similar taste to chocolate. Every dog mom knows that chocolate is bad for dogs, but carob is a great, healthy alternative.

I prefer to use carob powder, rather than carob chips. It’s easier to incorporate into recipes, as you don’t have to melt it first. Of course, if you plan to make carob-chip cookies, the chips would be better, but for gummies, powder is definitely the way to go.

I suggest that you use powdered carob for gummy dog treat recipes. You don’t have to melt it first, so it saves time and reduces work!

BUY CAROB

IS CAROB GOOD FOR DOGS?

Carob comes from the bean pods of the carob tree. It is low in fat, gluten- free and caffeine-free. It offers great health benefits to dogs (and us), including:

  • Vitamins B2, B1 and A
  • Calcium, magnesium and iron
  • It’s a good source of fibre
  • It contains pectin, which helps to flush out toxins

HOW TO USE CAROB IN DOG TREATS

You can buy carob in drops, or in powder form.

The drops are great for adding to biscuit and cookie dough. They’re not great for making icing and changing the colour of your dog treats though, since that would require melting the drops.

Instead, you can sprinkle a little carob powder into your recipe to add colour (and of course you get the health benefits too!).

Here are a couple of other recipes that use carob, that you can try too:

INGREDIENTS

GELATINE

Gelatine is a necessary ingredient in this recipe – it’s what makes the liquid turn to jelly. It’s important to use gelatine that is unflavoured and unsweetened, otherwise you may be introducing ingredients that could be harmful to your pup.

I highly recommend that you use an unsweetened, unflavoured gelatine like this one

BUY GELATINE

  • 150ml liquid: this could be milk, whey, kefir or bone broth. I used bone broth for this recipe
  • 12g gelatine: add more for firmer gummies, and less for softer gummies.
  • 1 heaped tsp carob powder

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Step 1. Put 60ml of the liquid into a bowl and sprinkle the gelatine over the surface. Sprinkle the carob powder over the surface. Leave it to sit for 5 minutes while the gelatine absorbs the liquid.
  • Step 2. Heat the remaining liquid in a saucepan and heat it to almost boiling.
  • Step 3. Pour the hot liquid into the gelatine mix and whisk until it’s smooth.
  • Step 4. Place the silicone mold on a baking tray to give it stability. Pour the mix into the molds.
  • Step 5. Place the mold in the fridge and leave it to cool for a couple of hours until set.
  • Step 6. Pop the treats out of the mold once they have set and store in them in a container in the fridge. They’ll keep for about a week.

You can also freeze these treats for later use. When I make a big batch of gummies, I leave some in the fridge for use over the next few days, and I store the rest in smaller bags to take out in future.
