Bunneh LOVES these! After he has his treat, he thanks me by licking a hole in my arm, or darned near! You could replace the carrot with apple or pear, but keep in mind these are treats, not a regular diet/food, and should be given sparingly. For a bunny, 1 tablespoon of fruit a day is the maximum you should give your furball. Timothy hay pellets are the best type of pellets, Zupreem the best brand. Recipe adapted from Brenda Plaxton's.

Ingredients

Nutrition
  • 1 small carrot (pureed or minced VERY fine)
  • 12 banana (mashed until very creamy)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 14 cup rabbit pellets, ground finely in a coffee grinder
  • 14 cup ground old fashioned oats, ground finely in a coffee grinder

Directions

  1. Mix pureed carrot, mashed banana and honey in a medium bowl.
  2. Add ground pellets and ground oats. Mix until blended.
  3. Knead in your hands for 1-2 minutes. It'll probably be pretty sticky.
  4. Place dough on large piece of parchment paper and cover with plastic wrap. Roll dough to about 1/8” thickness. Peel off plastic wrap.
  5. Score flattened dough with large knife in 1-inch cross sections like tiles. You’re not separating the tiles, just scoring them for easy breaking apart later.
  6. Transfer parchment onto cookie sheet and bake at 325F for about 30-40 minutes, checking to make sure they don’t over-brown.
  7. Turn off the oven, leaving the cookie sheet in the oven for another hour until the treats dry to crispness.
  8. Remove from oven and cool completely on cooling rack.
  9. Break the tiles apart - easy! – and store in a zip lock bag in the fridge.
  10. Give one to your bunny on each day that he/she is adorable. (That’s every day, of course!).

Well, the bunnys didn't exactly go for them. I mean they ate them, but they had to sniff a lot first. I suppose that it's just a little new to them. But I made the same thing using guinea pig food and she LOVES them!!! I used 3 mini bananas and leftover broccoli instead of the carrots and a few apple slices. I also added a few drops of piggy vita-drops.(for added nutrition) You could probably use any mixture of 1-2 fruit and 1 veggie. Or, throw in 1-2 jars of baby food. (NOT meat flavor) Also, because they are so crunchy and hard, I don't have to buy chew toys for her!! (to wear down their teeth. Thanks SO much for posting!!!

Hi Sandi, What a fabulous recipe! Many bunny owners from the Usenet group alt.pets.rabbits have now seen your bunny treats. Thanks! My dear bun of 14 passed away this past May, so I can't make the treats for him. Kiss Bunneh for me!
