    It turns out sticky sweet molasses can actually be good for you!
    Look for the blackstrap variety. 🙂
    And today a chunky little molasses bar is the perfect get-up-and-go treat!

    I’m not a fan of dried cherries or cranberries and since you can add or sub what you want, I’d sub in dried blueberries and chopped dried figs…maybe add chia seeds too!
