Apple Sprout Cutout cookies
Easy horse treats to make in a food dehydrator
Apple sprout cutout cookies are a healthy treat you can feel good about feeding to your horse.
These cutout horse cookies are just so darn cute and easy to make. The best part is they don’t have any added sugar. They also use sprouted wheat flour* so their basically a health food disguised as a cookie.
I chose to use Udo’s oil in these apple sprout cutout cookies mainly for the balanced omega fatty acids. An additional perk of using the oil is that it made them roll out well and turnout crisp when they were done dehydrating. Udo’s oil is super beneficial for people too. I usually drizzle it on salads as its a healthy oil that is very mild and veggie friendly (many of the same benefits as fish oil without the fishy taste).

Once you’ve rolled them out on a floured surface cutout with cookie cutters. I couldn’t find my heart cookies cutter so I had to freehand these. We can call them rustic. 😉
Apple Sprout Cutout Cookies
In a bowl mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, applesauce, and honey. Then add oil (adding the oil at the end instead of with the wet ingredients like most cookie recipes makes them easier to roll out without them being sticky. Shape the dough into a ball and roll out thin on a floured surface. Cutout with cookie cutters and place them on a dehydrator tray. Dehydrate at 155 degrees for five hours. *Note drying times may vary based on the type of dehydrator you use and how thick your cookies are. You can feed them right away or the extras can be stored in an airtight container. If they come out a bit soft you can store them in the fridge to be sure they won’t mold since they don’t have preservatives.

This recipe makes about one tray in the dehydrator so if you want to make more simply double or triple the recipe. It also works great to make a small batch and mix and match your extra trays with these other recipes.
