  • There is extra love in every treat when you take the time to bake them yourself.

Ready to get started? Here is what you'll need:

2. Prepare the Carrots

Start by washing them off. Then you are going to chop off the tops of each one. I mainly do that just so I don't see the top in the treat later.

In all horse treat recipes where there are apples or carrots, they'll need to shredded down to a manageable size.

In the picture below you can see that I am using a box grater to shred the them. This one is a medium grate. I like the finer grate better but I am too lazy to spend that much time grating.

I prefer to use an electric shredder such as the one below with a fine grate for these kinds of treat recipes. My old one broke and the new electric grater came with only the medium grate, so it will do. It's much faster this way, especially if you are going to double or triple the batch.

You can check your measurements and add the carrots to a larger bowl for mixing if you need to.

Now you are ready to measure the rest and combine ingredients.
