Horse oatmeal treats
- 1 cup Molasses
- 2 and a half cups oats
- 2 Tablespoons Oil
- 1 large Carrot
- 1 large Apple
How to make
Start by shredding the carrot and apple in a bowl
Add all the other ingredients and stir thoroughly. Make sure the oats are covered in molasses.
Now pour the mixture into a greased baking pan. Use one of about 9”×13” in size. Also, to make it easier to take out the treats after, use parchment paper on the pan instead of greasing.
Pat the treats down with a spoon or your fingers so they are flattened into the pan.
Bake for 40 mins at 400 degrees. Or until the treat gets crispy.
Remove from the oven and let it cool completely. When the treat is cool, you can break it into smaller pieces and thrill your equine family members with your gift of love.
The ultimate horse cookie treat
- 1 carrot
- 1 apple
- 1/2-3/4 cup flour (or make your oat flour by throwing some oats into a blender/food processor)
- 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil or coconut oil
- 2 cups oats
- 1/2 cup molasses (or honey)
- 1 tablespoon water (optional)
How to make
First, preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
Next, grate the carrot and chop the apple into fine slices.
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. It should form a dough you can squeeze in your hands without it falling apart. Feel free to tweak the ingredients to achieve this result.
Prepare a greased baking sheet.
Roll and press the dough into balls using your hands. You can use more flour or water to reduce stickiness.
Bake for about 28-32 minutes until golden brown. Check them often so you get the best results.
Once ready, cool and give your 4-legged one this delicious treaty. Leftover cookies can be stored in a sealed jar and refrigerator for up to a week.
