Molasses and Apple Treats

“Mom, are you actually going to serve it like that to the horses?” So much judgement.

Sometimes I like to give the minis a little something extra.

I use these treats as high value rewards to elicit or reward a behaviour. They are super simple, one bowl and I use ingredients they already get in their diet. The result is a tasty treat without the tack shop price tag.

Pre-Heat oven to 425

You need: bowl, measuring cups, tea spoon, cookie sheets, spoon for stirring

Ingredients:

2 cups sweet feed

2 cups rolled oats

1 cup molasses

1 apple grated

1 cup grated carrots

1 teaspoon salt

Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Form into balls and place on cookie sheet. I made 16 balls.

I wish my mom read my blog, she’d be horrified by my cookie sheets and buy me new ones.

Bake at 425 for 20 minutes. Turn off oven and leave cookies in, for approximately 90 minutes. Place in airtight container and let your horses enjoy! (Or put them on a plate with carrot peelings like you are some sorta chef)

Bon mini appetite. Ah who are we kidding, they have huge appetites, to go with their personalities.
