Molasses... a journey

So, I bought some Organic Molasses yesterday because of all of the good things I've heard about it (high in potassium, high in iron...).  Being the impatient moron that I am (hahaha), I was so excited to try it that I opened it as soon as I got home and took a taste.  BLLLEEEECCHHH!!!!  It was so bitter!  But, rather than getting discouraged about my recent purchase, I decided to make cookies out of it.  What else, right?!  Here is the recipe I threw together...

1/2 C Walnuts
1/2 C Almonds
1/8 C Rasins
1/2 C Dates
1 t Cinnamon
1 t Ground Ginger
2 T Molasses

Grind everything together in a food processor
Roll into balls
Freeze until solid (about 20-ish minutes)

The verdict??

These babies were GREAT!!!!  Molasses is an acquired taste... and with these little guys I think I'll acquire it haha!!

Happy New Year's Eve!  Make it a great day!
