Used two whole eggs, and 100% whole wheat flour, no white flour at all. The brownies were VERY moist, really good, and the chocolate lovers in our house even enjoyed these! Bake time was about 45 mins. My favorite dessert ever.

The recipe as is, isn't worth making again ( original score of 3 stars) unless you have dietary restrictions. However, after implementing ideas left by other users such as; two whole eggs and I added specialty chocolate. After that, I can say yes!!! It's the best!!! Its moist and substantial. I made double the recipe to help it fill the pan. Thanks everyone! final score 5 stars!!!

Excellent brownies made with stuff you have around all the time. I used special dark cocoa powder instead of carob and 2 whole eggs (batter was too dry otherwise)Sure took care of the chocolate craving!

Delicious and addictive! I was thrilled to find this recipe with carob. I made some alterations: whole wheat flour vs. all-purpose, 2/3 cup brown sugar instead of white, and added 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

absolutely amazing! came out very chewy and sweet, i needed to cook it for about 50 min thou and the carob colored the mouth black so don't eat to many :) but they taste very good and rich!

These brownies are easy to make and they bake in no time. All my kids loved them and asked me to make them again. I used Earth balance instead of butter. I have also made these brownies with coco powder and they are great, I prefer the carob. Very chewy and will cure a chocolate craving.

That was really good. I have had carob powder in my cupboard for years and never got the perfect recipe to use it in. Finally! Also, it was perfect, because I had 2 leftover eggwhites that I needed to use up. I did use 3/4 cup sugar instead of 1 cup, and it still came out really sweet. I also used carob chips instead of walnuts, as I did not hav any. Came out sooo good! The only thing I would say, is that for some reason, I felt that the batter was too little and it did not rise at all, so I had a very thin brownie. I wonder if everyone got that result. They tasted perfect though! Rich, chewy and so easy to make. Baked 30 mins, as the recipe asks and that was enough.
