Bake a batch of these to give to your horse as a special training treat.
Cook a bit longer if you want a drier / crunchy treat.
- 1 cup quick oats
- 1 cup oat bran
- 1/2 cup flour
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 1 cup molasses
Preheat oven to 350 ºF (180 ºC).
Grease a square baking tray (about 9 inches x 9 inches).
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.
Mixture should be sticky but not wet. If wet, add more flour. If the mixture is too dry, add more molasses.
Spread mixture evenly in the tray.
Bake for 20 – 30 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow the mixture to cool for 5 to 10 minutes.
Cut it into small squares.
Put the squares in an airtight container for storage.
UPDATE: In the middle of a very hot summer in Australia I found out (the hard way) that these treats can become sticky. Best used on cooler days 🙂
