Ok, I have bought a huge thing of molasses to try to get more iron in DD's diet. We have not had her iron tested, but she has been a bit more picky, but last night did eat a bowl of black bean soup. I tried some gingerbread molasses muffins from PPK yesterday and they were NASTY (first bad recipe from her in a long time!) and tossed them in the trash. Going to try some bran muffins today. Any other ideas of what to do with molasses? 1 tbs has 15% of daily iron! Though that amount varied by brand i looked at in the store.
i'm not help, but i'm looking for good recipes too. i bought a huge jar of it to get more iron in carlos's diet. (he was low at 9 months, but i thought that was a stupid time to test him anyway). since then i'm obsessed with the iron content of foods for him.
i still would like a good molasses cookie recipe.
i ended up making swedish pepparkakor cookies yesterday. i cut them out in halloween shapes. super cute. carlos seems to like them. i made them thicker than i did last year at xmas because they were very crispy like (i guess) they're supposed to be traditionally. but now that they're thicker, they're softer and he's not having a hard time eating them. the recipe i used calls for 1/2 cup of molasses. i bought a mild flavor molasses and i think next time i'd use a bolder flavor one for these cookies.
I use molasses in baked beans, and lots of muffins. I also use a bit of it instead of brown sugar in things like pancakes if I want that flavor but don't want sugar in them.
Thank you peimum for my siggie
