Alibar’s Bon Bons: Soft Horse Cookie Recipe
Alibar’s Bon Bons
My mom’s recipe, created especially for our dearly departed Alibar. These treats are chewy, which was perfect for his bad teeth and they were his favorite treat of all.
One bottle (12 oz.) molasses
One jar (23 oz.) applesauce
One cup rice bran or corn oil (can add more)
Six cups old fashioned oats
Three cups whole wheat flour
Mix all ingredients together. More flour or oats can be added if dough is too wet or sticky to handle. Roll into meatball sized balls. Dough will be sticky – spray hands with Pam or water to keep dough from sticking to hands. Place on ungreased cookie sheet one inch apart. Bake in 300 degree oven for 1/2 hour – up to one hour until firm. Don’t let them brown. Remove from sheet while warm with spatula. Cool before storing. Store in a cool place or refrigerate- these treats spoil quickly in warm weather. This recipe can be doubled. You can also add extra oil or molasses – then increase the oats and flour to make a firmer consistency. You can use sweet feed in place of oats. Grated carrots or bran can be added, too.
