"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."

"My rabbit Chip loves these! The recipe is very simple and didnt take a lot of time to make. Thanks for the great recipe my bun bun loves them."
"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!"
"I personally did not taste these but my bunny Willow ate it so I guess he would give it 5 stars.I do not have a coffee grinder so I used a mortar and pestle to grind the pellets and the oats,I used steel cut oats.This didn't form into much of a dough so I just took small pieces of the mixture and made a wafer like "cookie" instead.It made 12 "cookies""
