Homemade horse treats

Happy New Year all!! Here’s to a fabulous 2017, I’m not doing resolutions this year, instead I am choosing to simply be positive. There is always good in every situation and I intend to focus on that!

I finally had some free time this afternoon so I decided to bake the horse treats I’d intended to make about 6 months ago! They turned out to be super easy and have gone down extremely well with all my testers so far 🙂

You can pretty much add anything you fancy so long as it’s horse friendly!


  • 2 large apples grated
  • 4tbsp veg oil (or a horse oil, linseed is great for their coats)
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 2 cups oats
  • 2 cups wholemeal flour
  • 1/2 cup seaweed
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger 


  • Preheat oven to 180c or 160c fan assisted 
  • Mix all of the ingredients together until completely combined
  • Now it’s time to get messy!… use your hands to roll the mixture into bite size balls and place on greased baking trays
  • Bake for 20 mins, they’ll still feel a little soft when they come out the oven 
  • Leave to cool completely and then you’re good to go!

I’ve stored mine in an airtight container, will see how long they last but I reckon they’ll keep ok for about a week.

Tomorrow I’m going to try the dog biscuits so will let you know how they turn out 🙂 

Here’s Ash and his friends crowding for treats….
