I like these but am not a huge fan of the vegan carob chips and can't find non dairy chocolate chips. Any other suggestions. The carob chips just seem to have a very strong taste. Is there more than one kind?
If you live near a Whole Foods, have you checked there? They sell a 365 brand of vegan chocolate chips , some of them sell the Sunspire brand of grain-sweetened chocolate chips, and some of them have a brand of vegan, gluten free chocolate chips (which are usually with the gluten free stuff and not the chocolate chips).
Our local co-op had the chips but I'm having a hard time finding the maple sugar. I used raw cane sugar and they were real good but kind of gritty, maybe I need to let the sugar dissolve a bit more next time. What the heck it's Christmas, I'll make some more right now!
I use the grain-sweetened Sunspire ones, as well as their nondairy version that is not grain-sweetened. I have actually seen some popular name brand semi-sweet chocolate chips that are vegan in the regular grocery store. Just check out the labels.
Just a little fyi, that I didn't mention in my earlier post - depending on how far you want to take vegan, most cane sugar is not vegan. So, some chocolate may not have dairy, but cannot technically be labelled vegan because the cane sugar isn't.
I've found that you don't really even need the sugar for these. I made it one time and completely forgot to add it, only to be pleasantly surprised when I liked them better! I guess that gives it a more salty/sweet combination.
