Go Cookies Dehydrated horse treat recipe
Fiber to keep them "going" and omega 3s to keep them on the go.
So these cookies got their name for two reasons 1. they are loaded with fiber so they keep things moving right along smoothly digestion wise and 2. they are filled with beneficial omega 3 and bromelain to help keep your horse moving freely. They are a great one to make for horses that have a bit of arthritis or mobility issues.
Instead of picking out treats from the store that are filled with inflammation causing omega 6 and sugar you can help your horse out by making your own anti-inflammatory Go Cookies horse treats. The omega 3 benefits in these cookies come from three sources. Ground flax, I like to go with fruit blend flax for added antioxidants, flavor, and vitamins – you can get some here. Added omega 3s from Chia seeds. Plus whole flax seeds for added texture.
The food processor or blender makes these Go Cookie horse treats come together really quickly. Blend till all the big pineapple chunks are chopped up and the seeds are well mixed. It will be thick when your done.
You can shape them into balls and flatten them out to put on the dehydrator trays. Or they are cute to shape into hearts if your cheesy like me. Some of my hearts aren’t perfect but I’m pretty sure the horses will eat them anyway. 😉
Go Cookies Horse Treats
Throw all the ingredients into your food processor. No food processor no worries you can use a blender or Ninja. Blend up the mixture until it well mixed and all pineapple chunks are chopped up. It will be very thick. Shape into small treat sized balls and flatten or shape into hearts. Place on the drying tray. Dehydrate at 125 degrees for 6 hours then flip and dry 4 more hours. *Note drying times may vary based on the type of dehydrator you use and how much stuff you are drying at once so it’s best to check them every few hours. You can feed them right away or the extras can be stored in an airtight container.

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