I am wondering if anyone out there has a recipe for a cookie that I can feed my horse as a treat, or for rewarding good behaviour. I found some ready made cookies, with flax and molasses in them, but they are expensive. If anyone has a recipe, could they please forward it to me at my email address? Thanks very much.

I too would be interested in such a recipe but why not experiment with these ingredients:

rolled oats, molasses and dried apple bits? Mix enough so that they are firm and bake a 350? If they don't hold together than use 1 beaten egg.

In fact why don't we have a cooking contest!

FYI I tried one of the recipes on the ohio site. The 'easy cookie' recipe. I substituted pure apple sauce for the apple as I didn't have any apples. The horses LOVED them.

My horses love Cracklin Oat Bran cereal even better than horse cookies. And, its cheaper than the store bought horse cookies!
