2 cups quick-cooking oats
2 cups cornmeal
1 cup flour
1⁄2 cup sugar
1 cup lard (I use bacon grease)
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
Melt the lard and peanut butter together, either on the stove or in the microwave.
Combine all of the dry ingredients.
Add the dry ingredients to the melted fats.
The original recipe suggests pouring into a square pan about 2 inches deep, or spreading onto tree limbs. I just put it into ziplock containers and scoop it out as needed to fill a screen type of feeder (See photos). I use my cookie scoop to take it out, but then mash and break up the scoops, because otherwise the squirrels can come and take a whole scoop at once, way too easily! I don't know if it would hold up well in cake form, as I haven't tried that, but it defintely doesn't melt or make a gloppy mess.
