Naomi's Organic Horse Cookies (gluten-free)

My sweet 6-year-old, Naomi, has become quite the equestrian. She's being trained in hunter/jumper and just recently cantered off the lunge line! She asked me if there was a way to make homemade cookies for her favorite pony, Max. Therefore, we researched what foods were okay for horses to eat and whipped up her first batch of Organic Horse Cookies!


1/4 cup blackstrap molasses

1 cup organic gluten-free oats

1.5 cups organic gluten-free oat flour

1 organic apple, roughly chopped

5 small organic carrots, roughly chopped

1 tbsp organic brown sugar

15 Shaklee Alfalfa, crushed to powder

1/4 cup organic unsweetened applesauce

Pinch of salt


1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2) Mix all ingredients.

3) Form into balls and place on a cookie sheet.

4) Lightly spray with organic canola oil.

5) Bake for 15 minutes.
