Carob Chip Brownie Cookies

I found this recipe on a blog my daughter introduced me to, called Snacking Squirrel and I have to say it sounded really interesting. I love carob, but I had never used the Mori Nu before so I was in! Mori Nu is one of the lines I manage, and I handle it all the time, but just never made the plunge. Am I glad I did. These are so deelish, so majorly low in cals and fat, and tons of protein. Hello, my leetle friend. You and I are going to be spending some time together!!

The original recipe is from here:

**The texture is kind of creamy on the inside, but crisp & chewy on the edges. The are strangely awesome!**
