When you buy store bought treats you may wonder "Whats in them?" Usually they have things that could make your pet become obese. The homemade rabbit treat recipe I have found is good for them and they enjoy is this. They always seem to take it from me quickly and demolish it so fast! Here is the recipe that I have found that's great!

Ingredients:

1 cup of your bunnies food

1 banana

2 carrots

Instructions:

1) Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

2) Start by chopping up the banana and carrots into slices.

3) Grind your bunnies food up so it becomes powdery (it is quite easy to do with the excel rabbit food)

4) Puree the banana and carrot slices in the blender.

5) Put all of these ingredients into one bowl and mix until completely combined.

6) Take a bit from the mixture and roll it into a ball.

7) Place onto the baking sheet.

8) Repeat this with the whole mixture.

9) Bake for 30 minutes so they harden.

Now you can give your rabbit 2-3 everyday depending on the size of them. If you wanted you could use these when you are training your bunny!

you have to be careful with these treats. My bunny got very ill because she wasn't eating twice her weight in greens each day. It was hard to find organic, seedless, and nut less pellets after this. So after the vet told me I completely eradicated pellets out of her diet. She is now 7 years old and is still very healthy.

My rabbit Rosemary adores them alot! ?

I don't have a blender. Would the recipe worked if i crushed the banana with a fork and grated the carrot on the finest blades?

Oh and also do you need a mortar and pestle to crush the rabbit pellets?

1 cup of rabbit food with 1 banana and 2 carrots, is way too much. I made this yesterday and when I mixed the ground up rabbit food and the pureed carrots (2)/ banana (1) my mixture was still all but dry. The moisture didn't really do anything, so I had to puree another banana and 2 carrots, and then it was better, still not as moist as I would've liked though. So why is the recipe listed as it is for? It's way too much ground up rabbit food. What can be done differently to make sure that my mixture is plenty moist (from combining ingredients)?? Even though the recipe was off in terms amount amount of product needed and not being totally satisfied, my rabbit does enjoy eating the treats

We are pet sitting a bunny that was in a fire so we will take care of it until the family can take it back. We noticed that it is very skinny so would these help it?

As long as you get him to eat I'm sure it would help :)

Hi can I use just carrot instead of banana seeing as I don't have any or is there something else I can use other than banana. :)
alannahbale (author)  mibabear7 months ago

I've never tried it without banana but you can definitely try it and see how it works :)

I've made it now from my 4 rabbits! Only 3 liked it, the other doesn't have interest! Don't know why :(

But it's ok, they loved it! Haha.
They are right now running on my feet looking for more ahaha.

Thanks!

Some rabbits do like different things to others. Just try to alter the recipe and find something they really like and put that into it :)
