Oaty Apple Cakes:

These yummy treats are the perfect treat for any horse or pony. They are fully of oaty-goodness and provide high fibre with low energy, so are perfect for any temperament.

 

Ingredients:

 

Makes around 20 treats. Want more? Double it!

  • 1 ½ cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 ½ cup crushed of your horse/ponies favourite treat or mint. (I used crushed fruit loops cereal)
  • ½ cup applesauce/apple puree
  • 1 table spoon of cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup plain or whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar

 

Get Cooking:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Put all ingredients into a big mixing bowl. Use a mixer to thoroughly mash it all together!
  3. Shape the mixture into little cakes, whatever shape you like. You could do, hearts, circles or even horse shape!
  4.  Place them on a non-stick baking tray. You can add some extras to the top, such as as piece of apple or a mint. Press it into the centre of each one. I used a fruit loop!
  5. Bake for 14 minutes until they are crispy but still soft.
  6. Let cool for at least an hour before giving these delicious treats to your horse/pony. Keep them in the fridge to keep them fresh and make them last longer.
  7. Most of all, enjoy!
