Yield: This recipe yields 18 squares and can easily be modified to make more.


1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons carob powder
1-1/2 cups white sugar
3 eggs
1-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup carob chips


1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease the pan.
2. In medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Remove from heat and immediately stir in the carob powder. In a large bowl, beat together the sugar and eggs. Stir in the melted carob powder mixture. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the batter. Fold in carob chips if desired. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
3. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top has crusted over. You want the tester to come out a with a little batter on it, not completely clean. Cool for a few minutes before cutting into bars.


I actually used the “Perfect Brownie Pan”I got for Christmas a couple years ago.

Too Much Sugar
by: Lemon Head

Everything is great, but that is too much sugar for a dog. Dogs aren't gonna care if its sweet or not. You can either add way less sugar or not add any sugar at all. They will still love it though!

Chef's Comments ~ You're right, dogs don't need extra sugar in their homemade dog treats. This recipe looks really good for two legged family members.

This recipe could easily be altered to better suit a dog. One way would be to replace half the amount of butter with unsweetened applesauce. Next, omit the sugar and salt.
