Holiday homemade horse treats

The website where I got the recipe for my holiday homemade horse treats has been taken down, so I am posting the recipe here.

Here goes:

1 cup flour
1 cup Grape Nuts cereal
¼ cup light corn syrup (Karo)
¼ cup water
2 tbs oil
1 tbs peppermint extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Shape into balls (you will probably need to use your hands for this) and bake 15-20 minutes or until crispy.

The original recipe called for food coloring, but I left it out, which is why they look a little bland. I figured my horse doesn't care what they look like, just what they taste like — and he loves them! He is usually very well behaved, but he'll mouth me and even follow me into the tack room looking for more. I can see why, too — they smell very fresh and minty, even to me!
