      We added 1/2 cup of walnuts to this one to give it a bit of crunch. Delicious!

      I too didn't find the molasses flavor to be too strong (though we too love molasses). I thought these were dense but had lovely flavor and texture. My husband has raved. My picky eater (age 4) wasn't a huge fan, though he took a few bites. I used regular oats (not quick cooking) and found that I had plenty of texture for my taste. Yum. Thanks!

      Now, we love molasses, but these are delicious! I used mostly blackstrap (used up the last of it, so did have to top it off with some barbados), but I didn't find it terribly strong. I think that the oaty flavor and texture helps the molasses flavor from being overwhelming. I think the carrots probably help sweeten it up too, although they are pretty much undetecible in the dish. I love all the healthy things in here! Mine is actually a tad cakier and crumblier than I might like, so next time I will try this with whole wheat flour- I think it might be more delicious and even healthier, to boot! I only added half the amount of salt required. Next time I might add some nuts too- I found myself craving a bit more texture, but that might just be because of the cakiness. The oats give this nice little chewy bits, but honestly, next time, I might try putting in the 1/2 cup water as 1/2 cup warm water and letting the oats soak a bit. Just to try! I love the dark flavor of this with the bits of raisins and the pretty pale oats! We loved it! Thanks for posting; I will make again!
