Some simply use it as a sweet condiment, spreading it on buttered biscuits or cornbread, or as a dunk for slices of fresh pineapple or frozen banana. “A little drizzle is good on peanut butter,” calliope_nh says.

These chewy molasses squares are a “sweet treat with a purely molasses flavor,” says Becca Porter, who thinks they “really are incredible!” And this granola recipe “is awesome for molasses lovers – like a gingersnap for breakfast!” says julesrules.
