Wild Moon Cottage is a small working homestead in the pristine Ozark Mountains. We have dairy goats, poultry, organic herb and vegetable gardens, a start of a tiny fruit orchard, several black walnut trees, wild berries and fields of wildcrafting goodness. We raise our own milk, our own eggs, much of our own medicine and food. I do laundry by hand, make my own vinegar, candles, soap, bread, cheese ........ For a living I am an artist and herbalist. My goal for myself and our homestead is to be as self sufficient and self sustaining as possible.

Creature Comfort Recipes

Goat Cookies

5 c oatmeal or rolled oats
2 c flour (whole wheat)
4 shredded carrots
1 T garlic powder
1 t ginger root powder
1 c raisins
2 c applesauce
1 c vegetable oil (canola or corn)

Combine all and drop by 1/2 Tablespoons on ungreased cookie sheet. bake at 250 deg for 2 hours. Remove and allow to dry overnight before storing.

I believe these could also be dried in the sun or dehydrator.








Bun Nibbles

5 c oatmeal or rolled oats
2 c flour (whole wheat)
4 shredded carrots
1 T garlic powder
1 c raisins
2 c applesauce
1 c vegetable oil (canola or corn)

Combine all and drop by 1/2 teaspoons on ungreased cookie sheet. bake at 250 deg for 1 1/2 hours. Remove and allow to dry overnight before storing.

I believe these could also be dried in the sun or dehydrator.

(I left out the ginger root because I am not yet sure if Buns can have ginger.)

You know... This wasn't at all what I was expecting from this post. I was thinking that you were posting a recipe for people cookies that could be viewed as a comfort food!At least you used healthy ingredients, though I cannot imagine eating oatmeal cookies with garlic in them...LOL!

Ha! You got me. I was thinking that I would have to make these although I wasn't too sure about garlic in a cookie recipe and then I realized they are meant for four legged animals. Your animals must really love you.
