Looking for a new recipe to make this winter? These mineral-packed truffles for horses are full of health-boosting properties — and they’ll be a hit at the barn!


2 cups white chia, ground

1 cup freeze-dried cranberries, crushed to powder, or whole cranberry seed powder

½ cup raw carob powder

2 tablespoons bull kelp powder

2 cups filtered water


Choose organic ingredients whenever possible, and combine them all in a medium-sized mixing bowl.

If you would like a simple raw treat that can be easily frozen and thawed just before you head out to the stables, use a cup or teaspoon to create ideally-sized truffles. Top with a fresh or freeze-dried cranberry and freeze on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Once frozen, transfer the treats to a freezer-friendly container or Ziploc bag.

For an easy-bake treat, line a Pyrex dish or cookie sheet with parchment paper. Press in mixture, then score lightly with a sharp knife. Pop into a cold oven. Turn oven to 350°F on the convection setting. When your oven reaches temperature, turn down to 300°F and bake for one hour. Remove from the oven, cool completely, and store in the fridge or freezer.

This recipe can easily be doubled.
