Homemade Horse Treats

Every pony loves its treats. Thankfully,  this treat is tasty and easy to customize! Let’s head to the kitchen.


Ingredients-

  • 1/2 cup Grated carrotDSC_0395
  • 1 cup Oats
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1 TBS Oil
  • 1 TBS Molasses
  • 1/4-1 cup Water
  • Your horse’s favorite snack for mix-ins! We’ve pictured peppermints and strawberries; but you can also add blackberries, raisins, etc.

Preheat oven to 375.

Combine everything except water and the mix-ins in a mixing bowl. We recommend adding the oil before the molasses because it will coat the tablespoon and help the molasses slide into the dough easier. Slowly add splashes of water until it comes together as a dough. Our chef ended up adding  around a 1/3 cup to get it to the right point. If you add too much water, just add some extra flour to help thicken it up.

You can either break/chop up your mix-ins and combine with the dough or place on top before baking. If you’re adding them to the dough, go ahead and do that now.

Next, either drop spoonfuls on a cookie sheet and flatten slightly with the back of a spoon or flatten spoonfuls into a mini-muffin tin. If you didn’t combine your mix-ins, place one chunk of it on top of each treat and lightly press in.

Bake for 15 minutes and let cool before placing in a container or sharing with your equine friend!


They will keep in a container for 1 week, but we doubt you’ll have them that long!

Our chef used coconut oil and oats, but you can use whatever oil or grain your horse likes.

This recipe can be easily modified for your needs. It’s very simple to make a half batch or double the recipe for the whole barn!

The water can be replaced by applesauce, fruit juice, or mashed banana- which is perfect for a horse with low potassium. For a horse that’s a nervous traveler or scared of the vet, you can even replace with brewed Chamomile tea (read about Chamomile for horses here).
