Golden Syrup Horse Treats

I have often wondered what it was like when the first human had the foresight to tame a wild horse and ride. One of my greatest pleasures in life is my weekly dressage lesson and I count myself as an extremely fortunate individual that not only am I given the opportunity but that such a generous creature would allow me on its back. Most horse treats comprise of a number ingredients, that home cooks simply do not have access to or just aren't aesthetically pleasing. Here is a simple recipe I put together using home ingredients. You can make a number of modifications to this recipe such as substituting the rolls oats for bran, golden syrup for molasses, apple for carrot etc.

Golden Syrup Horse Treats
Makes approximately 60 treats.

  • 2 1/2 cups of plain flour
  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 1 cup of golden syrup
  • 1 grated granny smith apple


Preheat oven to 190°C. In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients. If necessary add more flour until the mixture becomes a malleable piece of dough.

Roll out the dough to approximately 5mm in thickness and using a cookie cutter of your choice, cut out your shapes and space evenly on an oiled tray. Place in oven for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown. Allow the treats to cool and then store in an air tight container.
