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
-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…
and blitz until a fairly smooth paste
Now lay a sheet of parchment paper (don’t use wax paper or it will stick) on your dehydrator sheet or cookie sheet
Put the dough on the parchment paper
Now, flatten the lump of dough a little bit, and lay another sheet of parchment over the dough.
Than roll out the dough to about a 1/4 inch thick with a rolling pin.
Now just bake or dehydrate your treats until they are a tad darker in color, and dried but still slightly pliable.
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.
