Horse Treat Recipe: WHOA Cakes

During the holidays, we wind up baking (and eating) lots more often. On yesterday’s menu: Apple-Spice Cupcakes for humans. Today: WHOA Cakes (With Honey Oats and Apples) for horses. And unlike the Cob Cookies I made earlier this week, Whoa Cakes are tasty enough for people, too!

Whoa Cakes feature cinnamon. In addition to providing delicious seasonal flavor, cinnamon may fight fungal infections and lessen muscle soreness. Try a batch:

  • 1 c rolled oats
  • 1.5 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 c honey
  • 2/3 c unsweetened applesauce*

*Note: I have a Vitamix high-speed blender, so I cored one medium Mcintosh apple and blended my own.

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Drop spoonfuls into greased muffin tin. Bake for 35 minutes. Let cool and serve. Family (both two- and four-legged) will ask for these treats by name!

  1. Sounds like if you make these and there are people in the breezeway, few will make it to the stalls…or even to the horses’ mouth!!
