Lots going on in the Capital Cow-house. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, we’ve had dressage on the brain. And we are praying for spring.
After a very wintry day and two successful dressage tests, here’s a new seasonal recipe. Your horse won’t complain if the Easter bunny hides these at the barn…
- 1 c rolled oats
- 1/2 c natural peanut butter (Find a brand with only one – yes, 1 – ingredient. Peanuts. Pure and simple)
- 3 tbsp honey (A native Floridian, I chose Orange Blossom)
- 1/4 c water
- Jumbo nonpareil sprinkles
Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Grease muffin tin. Blend oats, peanut butter, honey, and water thoroughly in food processor. Drop spoonfuls into each muffin tin. Press the mixture flat into each muffin well. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove tin from oven and increase temperature to 300 degrees F. Press nonpareils into the surface of each “nest.” Return the tin to the oven and bake for 15 more minutes. Let cool.
Your mouth will water when you smell these treats. And your horse will rob them from your pockets. You’ve been warned!
