The people of Rohan value their horses above anything, and when you want to treat your horse right, what better way than to serve them up some cookies and oat mash! Below are recipes for ‘Rohan’s Best Horse Cookies’ and ‘Steamy Oat Mash for the Weary Traveller’, both good enough to feed the horses of the Rohirrim!

Rohan’s Best Horse Cookies

1 3/4 cups of mixed grain (like a corn, oats, and barley blend)
1 1/2 cups of flour
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
3 tablespoons of dark corn syrup
A beaten egg white from 1 large egg

Preheat your oven to 375°F. Combine the grain and flour in a bowl and mix thoroughly. In another larger bowl, combine the applesauce, brown sugar and corn syrup. Stir in the egg white and then the dry mixture. Combine well. Drop spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheets, leaving about 2 inches between each. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until they’re dark brown. Remove to a rack and cool.
*This recipe makes about 25 cookies for your horses to enjoy!*
