Treat of the Week - Apple Molasses Cookies

If you are like me, you are always looking for great new treats for your mules and donkeys (and for yourself). So I thought I would post a new treat recipe and review every week. Here is the first one.

These Apple Molasses Cookies are simple and easy to make. My donkeys gave them 5 Stars on the taste test. Even my gelding, who is a pretty picky eater, was begging for more!

These cookies are also human edible, and are a great healthy snack. They are soft, with little bits of juicy baked apple throughout. If you prefer sweeter cookies, you can add a little sugar to the dough to sweeten it to your taste.


Apple Molasses Cookies
2 cups Rolled Oats
1 3/4 cups Diced Apple
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 tablespoons Molasses
1 cup Hot Water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients thoroughly.
Spoon dough onto non-stick cookie sheet.
Bake for 8 minutes.
Remove from cookie sheet, and put on plate or cooling rack to cool.

This recipe makes approximately 24 cookies.
