Bunny Treats – We Found Some Great Homemade Recipes!

September 18, 2016

Following along with the two previous homemade treat blogs, we’re now moving on to the small animal world! Not everyone has a dog or cat, bunnies need love too! And the best way to show them you care is by homemaking bunny treats for them. This can be a great activity for the whole family to spend time together and showing love to their animals. We hope you (and your pets!) enjoy this list of homemade bunny treats!

Banana Oatmeal Carrot Granola Bunny Treats:

Ingredients: 5 cm ripe banana 5 cm carrot, shredded 1 pandan leaf, cut into strips (you can also add cilantro or other leafy greens) 3 tbsp instant oatmeal Directions: 1. Mush the banana into purée. Add in the shredded carrot and pandan leaves 2. Add in the instant oatmeal and mix into a dough 3. Take a small teaspoon of the dough, press hard into a ball shape. 4. Shape the dough into a bowl shape. The shape allows the rabbit to bite on its own without having us to hold on to the snack. 5. Lay the small doughs onto a baking sheet lined with non-stick baking paper. 6. Bake the doughs in an oven set at 300 degrees for 30 minutes. Then allow the snack to cool down in the oven for at least 1 hour to allow most of the moisture to escape. 7. Store the cool down biscuits in an air-tight container. Give your rabbits one or two biscuits per day! Via: http://mymindpatch.blogspot.co.uk/2013/08/banana-oatmeal-carrot-granola-for-rabbit.html?m=1

Special Bunny Cookies:

Ingredients: ¼ cup mashed banana 1 tsp honey pureed pumpkin -¼ cup ground pellets – ¼ cup ¼ cup ground oats Directions: 1. Gather and mix all ingredients together 2. Roll out to ¼ inch thickness 3. Cut dough out into cute shapes and bake for 30 minutes at 325 degrees 4. Turn off oven, but let cookies dry in warm oven for another hour 5. Let cool completely, then give 1-2 cookies per day Via: http://www.thebunnyhut101.com/2014/01/bunny-cookies.html

Bunny Cilantro Squares:

Ingredients: 1 Banana 1/2 c. Pineapple, crushed (Do not drain juice. If you are using canned pineapple, make sure it is just pineapple in juice. Do not use pineapple in syrup.) 2 c. Cilantro, chopped 1 c. Rabbit pellets 1 c. Oats Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. 2. Puree banana, cilantro and pineapple until consistency is smooth. 3. Grind oats and pellets into a powder (a clean coffee grinder works best for this). 4. Mix the puree, oats and pellets together in a large bowl, and knead the dough until it is stiff enough to form a ball. Divide the dough in half, and place on baking sheets or stones, and roll to about 1/8th of an inch thick. Hint: When you are rolling out the dough, put plastic wrap over it. This will prevent the dough from sticking to your rolling pin. 5. Cut the sheets of dough into small squares (a pizza cutter works well). 6. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Be careful not to brown them too much, especially if you are using baking sheets (metal sheets brown faster than stones). 7. Turn the oven off and let the treats sit in the warm oven for several hours to dry out and harden the treats 8. Let cool completely before giving them to your bunny and store in an air-tight container 9. Only give these occasionally, as they are loaded with sugar! Via: http://www.amysedarisrocks.com/simpletimes/simple-times-crafts/ Another good idea for very simple treats is putting your bunny’s favorite fruits and veggies, cut up, in ice trays with just enough water to bind the chunks together and freezing overnight. Viola, instant cooling bunny treats for your favorite small animal!
