Well this got me rather excited, and seeing as we had molasses in our cupboard for some unknown reason (actually it was for a cake I never made...), I decided to add some to my porridge this morning for breakfast to see what it would taste like. And it tastes pretty yummy! I only added a teaspoon as it was just an experiment but I could have easily add two. It was a deeply sweet ginger taste, yummo!
I also add a teaspoon of chia seeds to my porridge, which she mentions is also high in iron (woo!) and that we of course need vitamin C to help absorb the iron. Hello raspberries!! :)
So here was my breakfast this morning, with a teaspoon of molasses. You can see the oats are a slightly darker colour.
And here's the molasses...
As a vegetarian I think it's very important to consume iron rich foods so I'll continue to add a teaspoon or two of molasses to my porridge everyday! And the smoothie she made looks pretty awesome too, I'll definitely try it out :)
Have you ever tried molasses?
P.S. Happy Spring everyone! Bring on the warmer weather!! :)
