Some years ago Deb Davis in CO gave me the following recipe for Cow/Goat Cookies. I now make them to have on hand for people to feed the cows when the come to visit….
- 12 cups sweet feed, COB, or other grain mix
- 2 cups bran (oat, wheat or both)
- 1 Tblsp salt
- 4-5 cups molasses (5 if using a plain grain mix)
- 2 cups hot water
- 1-2 cups dried apples and/or carrots, chopped fine
Mix all ingredients, refrigerate one hour.
Using a tablespoon, scoop cookies onto lightly greased cookie
Bake at 275 for 45 minutes, turn cookies and bake an additional
Keep in a cool dry place or can be frozen.
I have found the Bran Flakes cereal works the best rather than
the bran. Baking them on Parchment Paper on the cookie sheet keeps
them from sticking.
