No-Bake Salted Coconut Molasses Bars & More Recipe Contest Winners

Take me to the recipe

no bake salted coconut molasses barsThis is a day for winners.

With yesterday’s election, and today’s media and water cooler buzz, I thought it was a fitting time to announce three additional Canadian champs – the bar recipes that came out on top in our recipe contest with members of Food Bloggers of Canada. You can click through to each blogger’s website for the recipe.

The grand winner:

Coco-lassies: No-Bake Salted Coconut Molasses Bars

Created by Margaret at Kitchen Frau blog

A favourite of those who can’t resist the chocolate-coconut combo. This is a treat that feels healthy and decadent at the same time and somehow manages to not taste too coconut-y (thanks to the tang of the molasses that balances the coconut.)

Second place, by barely a flake of coconut (one point behind the winner):

Molasses Carmelitas

Molasses Carmelitas 3

Created by Jenny of The Brunette Baker blog

For those who love to indulge in chocolate and creamy caramel. These bars are rich, over the top and irresistible. The texture is delightful – a little crumbly on top, soft caramel in the middle and lots of chocolate in every bite.

Third place:

Molasses & Ginger Chew Granola Bars


Created by Sam of the blog It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken

A deceptively simple bar that’s full of surprises. If you like a classic granola bar with a little oomph then this is the bar for you. Generous on the candied ginger this bar has a clean wholesome feel and the sort of texture that keeps you nibbling away until half the pan is gone.

One more thing…

    I wrote to say that I cannot see the BAR recipes, just the pictures so that I can print them and cook them. Still no reply. So, once again – “what can I do to get the recipes – love to make them.

    Best regards. Norma
