Being a pet parent, you will know that bunnies love to have treats. You will also know that there are not a lot of treats options available in the market for your furry baby.
If you’re planning to do something extra special for your little bunny, then worry not because we’ve got you covered with some amazing and easy treat recipes. You can prepare these for your bunny and make him or her feel at the top of the world.
Here are three easy-peezy cookie treat recipes for your furry baby. They all require very basic ingredients that you can find in your fridge or your kitchen at any time. We promise it won’t take more than an hour for you to make or bake them!
1. Banana Cookies –
Rabbits seem to love the flavour of Banana and it is also considered safe for them to consume. However, it is a treat so it has to be given to them in moderation. Let’s dig into making this cookie treat for them.
• Rabbit pellet dry food ¼ cup
• Oatmeal ¼ cup
Start with preheating the oven at 350 degrees F. Pour the pellet and oatmeal into a blender and blend them together into a fine mix. With the help of a fork, mash the banana nicely and add it to this mixture. The carrot has to be made into a puree form and then added to the mixture. Mix all the ingredients until it forms a dough. Remember that the dough should have a mouldable consistency. You can add the dry pellet dust if the consistency is too watery. You may add carrot puree or water if the consistency is too dry. Roll out the dough on a flat surface and cut out cookies. Place them on a baking sheet and bake them until the cookies are golden brown.
2. Truffle carrots -
We all know that rabbits and carrots have an old connection. Your furry baby will definitely enjoy some carrot flavoured truffle balls.
• Rabbit pellet dry food 1 cup
• 2 Carrots
• 1 Banana
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Blend the carrots and banana together to prepare a puree. Grind the pellets and combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. You might need to add a little water to make the dough into a mouldable consistency. Measure and add the water basis on the consistency. Once the dough is ready, roll it into small balls. The size of the balls must be about 1 inch to ½ inch in diameter. This is to make sure your bunny isn’t having too much of the treat. Place these balls on a baking sheet and bake them for 30 minutes. Once baked, leave them in the oven for another hour even after the oven has been switched off. This method will help the truffle balls cool down without drying too much or breaking.
3. Non-Baked Apple Balls -
Yes, you heard it right – you do not need the oven to make these cute treats for your cutie! The treats have a dusting of oats over them and they can stay fresh if stored in the refrigerator.
• 2 Apples
• 1 Banana
• Lettuce ½ cup
• Rabbit Pellet dry food ¾ cup
• Oatmeal ¼ cup
Peel the apples and blend them to make an apple puree. Once you’re done making the apple puree, add lettuce and banana and blend this mixture again. Grind the pellets separately and then mix it with this fruit mixture. Grind the oats until they turn into flakes and keep them aside. Take the fruit & pellet mixture and mould them into small balls with your hands. Later, coat each ball with oat flakes. This will create a powdered donut appearance. Refrigerate these balls for 30 minutes and they are ready! To prevent them from spoiling, store them in a refrigerator immediately. It is advisable to not leave them out for a long time.
You can shower your bunny with love by preparing and feeding these yummy treats to them. Always remember to feed your bunny treats in moderation, because a bunny’s main food consumption must be grass and hay. You must try to keep the number of treats minimum to 1 or 2 treats per day. Happy baking!
