Homemade Apple and Oat Horse Treats

Posted 2014-02-15 by Madeline Pettetfollow
A beloved horse can be as much a part of the family as a cat or dog, so why shouldn’t they get a treat from time to time?

This simple apple and oat bake requires very little attention when cooking, but makes a delicious horse treat for special occasions like birthdays or just to tell them thanks for a great ride.

  • Minimum 6 apples
  • 1/2 cup Rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon Golden Syrup

  • Three simple ingredients that should be in any pantry

  • Preheat your oven to 180ºC (fan-forced)
  • Boil one pot of water and keep it on heat
  • Chop up your apples into small chunks (no bigger than a fifty cent piece)
  • Place apples in boiling water and stir every couple of minutes for thirty minutes or until apples have become golden and soft

  • These apples are ready to be drained

  • Drain water from stewed apples and place back in pot
  • Mix golden syrup with stewed apples
  • Place stewed apples in lined baking tray and cover evenly with cup of rolled oats
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until oats are crunchy but entire dish is still spongy to touch
  • Shake any loose oats from pan and allowed to cool before cutting and serving
  • Keep refrigerated and consume within two days

  • Ready to serve

    One of the great things about this recipe is that not only is it very forgiving if cooking isn’t your forte, it’s also incredibly versatile. Do you have a horse that has a sweet tooth for pears? Stew some pears with the apples. You can also swap out the golden syrup for that old horsey favourite of molasses. It’s very easy to tailor this recipe to suit your horse’s preferences.

    The best part about these treats is that they are 100% edible and delicious for people too. Is there a better way to spend a summer afternoon than sharing some goodies with your equine buddy? Ending a long ride with a picnic is a fantastic way to spend some quality downtime with your pony.

    Dont you want to share a treat with this beautiful guy
