So you asked for it and I’m FINALLY providing the recipe. It took me a while because, well, I had to write it down. Which required me making them again… The recipe is rather flexible. So, modify if necessary. I do! (If I’m out of an ingredient, I just use something else or a different quantity. It works!)
3 cups oat bran
1 cup flour
1 quart sweet feed
2/3-3/4 of a 29oz can of pumpkin
1 cup molasses
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp pink sea salt
Grate/shred the carrots. I threw mine in the food processor because I’m lazy and it’s super easy.
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.
Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl. If you have a stand mixer, you may wish to use that.
Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing throughly.
Fill mini muffin pans [I like the silicone ones, they make removal super easy. I use these] to the top (packing tightly). The muffins don’t rise so no need to leave room. I fill with a regular spoon.
Bake at 300* for 60-70 minutes. Cool on rack.
They ARE shelf stable, but I found that after a couple of weeks, I like to refrigerate. I leave mine a little soft so I can stick a pill in the top so they could probably be cooked a touch longer due to the pumpkin. After 3+ weeks, they start to go with the moisture content. But, they do keep longer in the refrigerator.
Makes ~7 dozen. You can cut the recipe to make less.
Yum!! I wonder if my Gemmie would eat these. I may have to experiment. She ONLY likes carrots but this has a lot of carrot in it so she may overlook the other flavors.
