Blue's Chews (Horse Cookies)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by SaddleUp87

This is an extremely simple horse cookie that I developed for my special boy, Blue. Try them, they are so much cheaper to make than buying those ridiculously priced ones at the tack shop! As a matter of fact, you could probably even whip up a batch in the time it takes just to get there!

I made these, with a few changes, for all the horses at my barn as Christmas presents! I used flax & sesame seeds and instead of carrots, I used dried granny smith apple chips, crushed. Also, only had creamed honey and added a TBSP of kosher salt. I used a melon-baller and then flattened with a glass. I got 60 treats out of the recipe. Thanks for sharing. I anticipate lots of happy ponies :)
