Homemade Rabbit Treats

 Hello all! Here’s a new tutorial for you, how to make homemade bunny treats! I came across this idea recently and had to try it. (taa daa)  My bunnies love these.

The Ingredients: (This recipe is easily halved or doubled)
-2 ripe bananas
-1 apple or 1 c applesauce
-2-3 carrots
-4 TB honey
-1/2 c oats
-1/2 c rabbit pellets
-1 c whole wheat flour

(If you are going to use an oven, preheat it to 300-325 F while you prepare the treats.)

Next, shove ’em all in the blender…

Than roll out the dough to about a 1/4 inch thick with a rolling pin.

In my dehydrator, that took almost 5 hours, it will vary depending on your dehydrator or oven, and how moist your dough is.
(if you are using the oven, heat it to 300-325 F. If you are using a dehydrator, use the meat or jerky setting)
Keep checking on it until it looks right!
Now just cut the treats, and you’re done!

I keep a handful out with my feed supplies and keep the rest in the freezer.

Go feed these to your bunnies! 🙂
