Treat of the Week - Winter Waffles
You may be wondering why I'd post a recipe for Winter Waffles when it is the last day of March!
It may be the beginning of spring, but winter is still trying to hold on as long as it can. We had nice warm sunny weather the first couple weeks of March. But then last week the storms returned, and we had lots of rain all week. This Tuesday night and Wednesday it decided to snow, and now we have several inches of snow on the ground!
So I think it's appropriate to make Winter Waffles as a last farewell to winter. I don't think your longeared buddies will mind on a cold snowy day! You might even like to eat a few.
4 Cups Rolled Oats
1 Teaspoon Salt
Thoroughly mix the rolled oats and salt in a mixing bowl. Then stir in enough water to make the oats a little soupy, but not too runny. Spoon this waffle batter into your oiled waffle iron, and let bake for 10-15 minutes. The waffles should be crispy on the outside and soft inside. Let cool to a suitable temperature. Then serve.
Your longeared buddies might enjoy this treat topped with a little all-natural applesauce and a few strawberry slices like we have done in the photo above.
Only serve one or two waffle squares per donkey or mule at one time. You don't want them to get too much oats to eat at one time, but they will enjoy a small treat!
Have an idea you'd like to see discussed in a future article?
