No Bake Whole Food Horse Treats

1/2 cup pitted dates (you can soak them in water if you want more even consistency)
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1/3 cup small pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup oat flour
3/4 cup oat blend

1/4 cup topping for rolling (ground almonds, ground flax, coconut) 

Blend dates in the food processor or blender till they make a paste like consistency (if you didn’t soak the dates ahead of time add 3 tablespoons of water. Then add all other ingredients and blend till the mixture is the consistency of thick cookie dough. 

Roll the mixture into one inch balls with your hands. If it comes out sticky it’s helpful to flour your hands in-between each one. 

Roll the balls into the topping of your choice- ground almonds, coconut, chia seeds, or even ground banana chips work well. 

Insightfully,

Becky

    1. Thanks for checking out my post, Ashley. I have yet to find a horse that doesn’t love them and they’re super easy to make.

  2. I take it your horse checks your pockets when you show up at the barn ‼️ “Where are my treats?” 🐴

    1. Of course 🙂 They are always ready to work for novel treats and love trying new things.
