Hi, I’m looking for horse treat recipes I can make at home with the ingredients I have in the pantry. I have:
• Flour
• Oats
• Molasses
• Honey
And in my head it seems like these would combine to make a dough of some sort. I just can’t find a recipe with measurements and bake timings/temperatures? Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

It seems like when we did treat making as a rescue fundraiser they also used peanut butter and oil. It gives you some fat and protein as a “moisture” rather than more sugar.
They didn’t really have us measure much, the “recipe” was a guideline and you added enough liquid/moisture to make them roll into balls and hold shape. If too wet add a little flour or meal.
They weren’t baked, just refrigerated and used fresh.
If you really want baked try looking for granola bar recipes and adapting them!

This probably isn't what you're looking for. I do it because I use as much time as I have with my horses for riding and cut out as much not-riding horse time as I can. I give my horses slices of sweet potato (batata). They love it.

I know in the UK you measure by weight and not volume, so I apologize for this American version.

Ultimate Horse Cookie

1 carrot
1 apple
1/2 cup molasses or honey
2 cups oats
1/2-3/4 cup flour
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon water (optional)

Preheat oven to 300-325 degrees (F). Grate and finely chop carrot and apple. Mix together all ingredients. Roll and press into balls with your hands, about 1 inch or so is diameter. If dough is too sticky, simply add more flour. Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake 28-32 minutes, checking on them often, until golden brown. Cool. Store in a sealed container and use within a week.

*It's completely fine to tweak the ingredients for what you have on hand. (I didn't use a carrot because I didn't have one for example)

*I used oatmeal for the oats.

Hope your horses enjoy!
