Pomegranate Carob Bites (Paleo, AIP)

Author: Michele
Servings: 9 Bites
A decadent treat that is AIP-compliant and super easy to make. Enjoy for the holidays or any time when you just need that something sweet. Paleo, AIP, Vegan
Prep Time 10 mins
Total Time 10 mins


  • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil (melted)
  • 1/2 cup Carob Powder
  • 3 tbsp Maple Syrup (room temperature best)
  • pinch Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Bean Powder (optional)
  • 1/2 cup fresh Pomegranate Arils


  • Place 9 paper liners in a muffin baking tray. You can alternatively use a silicone mold if you'd rather (no need for paper liners then)
  • Mix all of the ingredients together except the pomegranate arils in a small bowl or measuring cup until smooth. Stir in the pomegranate arils.
  • Spoon the mixture evenly between the paper liners.
  • Refrigerate for at least an hour until hardened. Keep refrigerated. You can also freeze them at this point (let sit at room temperature for a few minutes before eating if frozen). Enjoy!


If you use cold maple syrup the coconut oil might seize up a bit. This is ok, it's just not as aesthetically pleasing as when the mixture is smoother.
You can also use honey instead of maple syrup.
