Gingerbread Bars with Kefir Frosting

Molasses gives these bars their rich flavor. Molasses is a rich source of nutrients, and it contains a number of essential minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, manganese, potassium, copper, iron, phosphorous, chromium, cobalt, and sodium. Blackstrap molasses is the type of molasses I use since it has a low glycemic index. This means the glucose and carbohydrates are metabolized slowly, demanding less insulin production and stabilizing blood sugar.
