Healthy Horse treats- DIY

Everyone loves cookies, horses are no exception. My horse will do just about anything to get these homemade horse treats. Ive listed several, so you can choose by what you have on hand. My son and I have made these cookies many times and they are very popular in the barn, once Justin even tried one because they smell soooo good. (a little too salty, but he would have eaten it anyway.) The cinnimon and apples smells divine in the kitchen. I like to make several batches and keep the extras in the fridge. You will have fun finding your horses fav cookie from this collection of healthy horse treats. Beware as they may cause spontanious displays of tricks like bowing, counting and rolling, whinnys and other forms of cute to get your attention. Also if your family is anything like mine they will be saying ("where are the people cookies?) So go ahead and make them a batch of oatmeal cookies and maybe they will do some tricks to like help with the laundy, dishes or stall cleaning? Hey I can dream right! Enjoy!

Salt-1/2 Cup Mix all together to form a cookie like ball and drop in muffin tins by large tablespoon-should cover bottom of tin about 1/4 full, to help hold shape and cook up nice and crunchy. Bake 15 min at 350.I wanted to make a healthy/tasty cookie to add in other nutritionals such as biotin or msm. the loads of flax and soy are great for hair coat and added fat for hard keepers, also lots of salt to encourage drinking in the heatI will make again and add brewers yeast,msm,and biotin hoof formula,for an older equine of mine. Have fun and play with this recipe, even the mostpicky eater will go nuts over these cookies. Nancy


1 cup carrot grated 1 apple grated 2 Tablespoons corn oil 1/4 cup molasses 1 tsp. salt 1 cup rolled oats 1 cup flour Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheet. In a large bowl, mix carrot, apple, corn oil and molasses together. Then fold in salt, oats and flour until well mixed. Spread dough out in one big piece on the cookie sheet. Score dough with a knife to make it easier to break apart after baking. (Or try rolling dough out and cutting shapes with cookie cutters) Cook for 20 minutes or until brown. Let cool, break apart and serve. I made these for my horses and they Loved them, so did our dogs! I doubled the recipe and turned them and cooked another 20 minutes so they were nice and crunchy. Super easy, fun and your horses will have a great healthy treat. Best Wishes to All My Horse Friends,Nancy
