Blackstrap Molasses Cookies

Blackstrap Molasses Cookies

These are great for lunchbox snacks. Unlike refined sugar, blackstrap molasses contains essential vitamins and minerals — boasting a number of powerful health benefits. Molasses has a moderate glycemic load of 55, which makes it a better choice than refined sugar, especially for people with diabetes. It contains high levels of vitamin B6 (34% DV), manganese (77% DV), magnesium (61% DV), potassium (42% DV), iron (26% DV), calcium (20% DV) and selenium (25% DV).

And did you know….. Blackstrap molasses also promotes the growth of healthy tissues, so it serves as a natural wound healer. Consuming blackstrap molasses accelerates the healing time of cuts, wounds, burns and signs of acne — helping you maintain clear and healthy skin.

This is my preferred sweetener because of all the above benefits but remember, it is a sugar so use as an occasional food if trying to manage weight and blood sugar.
