I love these Sunspire [no longer available] (nice website) [gone] Vegan Carob Chips. Use these carob chips instead or Google it, I found a bunch of them.
I use them for everything, cookies, chocolate hazelnut biscotti (Stay tuned for that one!) cake, anything that calls for chocolate chips and beyond. If I have some too long I usually end up eating them by the fistful.
They make better than chocolate chip cookies.
