I'm very particular on what our bunnies eat. The buns are fed organic non corn-soy feed and making sure their treats are healthy and organic is just as important! Here's a quick and easy recipe I made up the other day and I wanted to share it because it's so simple and easy to do!
Step 1. Find Silicone Molds
You can use pretty much any mold that suits your fancy. Just make sure its oven safe. Consider the size of your molds; you don't want them to be too big because you want treat sized bites. I like to browse Michaels craft store to find fun shaped molds. I'm sure Amazon has a large selection to choose from as well!
Step 2. Gather Ingredients/ Supplies
-1 Heaping cup of rabbit feed ( about 6 ounces )
- 1/4 Banana
- Sliver of apple ( I cut an apple into 8 equal pieces and use half of one of the 8 pieces )
- 1/3 Cup water
- Food processor
- Cookie sheet
- Set oven to 275 F
Step 3. Combine Ingredients
Add the rabbit feed to the food processor and blend as well as you can. The finer it's blended, the better the treats will stick together and hold their shape. Then add the banana, apple, and water. Blend until a paste forms. Firmly press the mixture into the molds. If you have a mold that has small areas such as rabbit ears, be sure to press down multiple times to really pack the mixture into it. This will give you the most accurate shape!
Place molds on a cookie sheet and bake at 275 F for 15-20 minutes. Remove and let them cool for a few minutes until you can handle the mold. Carefully remove the treats. There will still be moisture on the bottom side of the treats. To help them not fall apart and also to last longer, place the treats back onto the cookie sheet without the mold. Bake for another 15-20 minutes at 275 F. Remove from oven and let them cool. Store in a cool dry place!
