Special Note:  Horses should not be fed peanuts, because they cannot digest them and it clogs their intestines. According to one vet, peanut butter will not hurt them.  Please use your own judgment or check with your vet when in doubt.

1 tbsp. wheat flour
1/2 tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 tbsp. honey
1 shredded apple (not the seeds-these are poisonous!)
1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles
Crushed mints, golden raisins, some shredded carrots, grain, or a favorite treat inside also make these treats irresistible!

In a large bowl, mix the oatmeal, water, and honey. Put the mixture in the microwave for about 2 minutes. In a separate bowl, mix wheat flour, brown sugar, shredded apple, and extra ingredients. Combine the contents of both bowls, and put this mixture in the microwave for about 2 more minutes. Heat the oven to 375 degrees, and depending on oven they should finish cooking in 10 minutes. Then add sprinkles, and let cook for 5 more minutes to get them crispy. Italics loves these treats, she even gives me kisses after! From Katie Blackwelder
