Although molasses is an extremely healthy sugar substitute that has been a staple in the American diet since pilgrims first visited the continent, it is certainly an acquired taste.

Depending on the type of molasses you’ve tried, you might find it too sweet, too sour, too sugary, too rich, or simply just too difficult to obtain in the region in which you live.

Fortunately, there are several substitutes to consider.

Some of the substitutes are better-known than others, but they all have the same qualities in common, namely, that they’re pleasant-tasting and contain a thick consistency that lends them well to desserts and sweeter dishes.

Molasses, or black treacle, is a viscous product resulting from refining

sugarcane or sugar beets into sugar. Molasses varies by amount of sugar, method of extraction, and age of plant. Wikipedia

Barley Malt Extract
Like honey, barley malt is a golden-colored, sweet, thick liquid that is used to sweeten and improve the tastes of foods such as bread, ice cream, baby foods, breakfast cereals, and bagels.

It is also used as a sweetener for tonic beverages, and I don’t think we need to elaborate on barley malt’s key role in the brewing of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beer.

Barley malt extract is a great substitute for molasses because, aside from its parallel aesthetic qualities, it is also nutritious.

An easily-digestible protein that is high in amino acids and vitamin B, as well as a stool softener that is used to treat constipation in children, barley malt extract can function as a standalone nutrient supplement as well as an important cooking ingredient.

Cereal grain
Malt is germinated cereal grains that have been dried in a process known as “malting”.

The grains are made to germinate by soaking in water, and are then halted from germinating further by drying with hot air. Wikipedia
