Horse Treat Recipes
Horse Treat #1
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. Horse Treat muffins
In a large bowl, combine the following:
4 quarts sweet feed 2 cups bran or bran cereal2 cups oats (I used Quaker oats from grocery store) *optional 1 can frozen apple juice concentrate 5-6 carrots, chopped (I use my food processor) 3 apples, chopped (optional) 2 cups raisins (optional) 1 jar molasses 1 jar Karo corn syrup5 eggs 2-3 cups corn oil 2 tablespoons baking powder
Add flour and water, alternating until you have a cake like batter that is very chunky.
Spray muffin tins with an oil and drop by spoonfuls. They will rise a little, so don't overfill. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-15 minutes. Cool on a paper towel.
Or you may pour batter into a large baking pan (well-greased!) to make cookie bars. Bake until center is dry and firm (probably 30-60 minutes, depending on your pan and amount of batter). Let cool overnight or for several hours. Cut into squares.
Carrot and apple horse cookies.
1 cup sweet feed 2 cups bran 1 cup flax seed 4 large carrots, shredded 1 cup molasses 1/2 cup brown sugar (one half cup) 1 cup applesauce
Mix molasses, brown sugar, carrots and applesauce in one bowl. In another mix the dry ingredients. Slowly combine the molasses mixture with the dry ingredients. Add only enough molasses mixture to form a thick dough, add more bran if necessary. Line cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Using a tablespoon, drop batter onto cookie sheet and flatten slightly to form portions about the size of a silver dollar. Bake at 300 degrees for about 1 hour. Flip and bake for an additional 45 minutes until they are dried out. Keep checking to make sure they don't burn. HORSE (AND DOG) COOKIES
1 1/2 pint (or 500 ml) of molasses 1 jar of applesauce 1/2 c. of corn or veggie oil 8 c. of large flake oatmeal 4 c. of bran (horse bran or from the cereal aisle in the grocery store or a bran cereal) 1/2 c. of salt 1 1/2Tbsp. of baking soda 2 lbs. shredded carrots 10 c. of whole wheat flour.
Preheat oven to 350 F
Mix it all together and check for "cookie" consistency in the dough. Grease cookie sheets (with the molasses this is really important), Drop by large horse sized spoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes.
1 cup oatmeal 1 cup flour 1/2 (one half) cup wheat germ oil 1 cup water 1/2 (one half) cup packed brown sugar 2 eggs 1 apple, peeled 2 large carrots, finely chopped 2/3 cup dark molasses 10 peppermints, crushed
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix ingredients thoroughly in a large bowl, and bake until crispy and dry. Horses love 'em (and so do humans!!)
