Free Molasses Cookbooks Online

I bought a carton of Grandma fancy molasses at my grocery store the other day, and when I went to put it away; I saw a LINK to a cookbook. Of course I had to check it out, and actually ended up downloading several of the books on offer, covering breads, desserts and main dishes. I’ve already made the baked beans, the Chili Molasses Sweet Potato Wedges (link to the recipe HERE), and the Boston Brown Bread Muffins. All of them were easy, came out fantastic, and are now in my recipe file. Well worth a download.

Conflicted Bran Muffins (fibre and chocolate)

My chocolate riff on the standard All Bran muffin. They run about 130 calories each—you could drop that by using butter instead of vegetable oil (it has 20% fewer calories, who knew?), skim milk (or water) for 1%, and by replacing two tablespoons of the flour with cocoa.

2 cups All Bran original
1 ½ cups 1% milk
1 beaten egg
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 cup flour
¼ cup cocoa powder
½ cup sugar

Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a large bowl, combine the All Bran with the milk, egg and vegetable oil. In a 2 cup measuring cup, combine the flour, cocoa, and sugar. Add the dry ingredients to the All Bran mixture and stir until moistened—don’t overstir.

Drop batter into muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes.
