Cooking for Critters

Rabbit Treats

A couple of weeks ago I found a recipe online for rabbit treats, and I decided to try it out. Munchkin and Cici loved them so I thought I would do a post about how I made them.

I did things a little differently from the original recipe to suit what I had in my kitchen, so I will tell you what I did, and I will include the link to the original recipe at the bottom of the page.


baby carrots
an apple
1/4 cup rabbit pellets
1/4 cup ground oats
1 tbsp. honey

First, preheat the oven to 325. While it preheats, grind up oats and rabbit pellets in a food processor or coffee grinder. ( I used a coffee grinder). Puree, or finely chop a hand full of baby carrots, and a handful of apple slices in a food processor. Mix the oats, pellets, carrots, and apple together in a bowl. Mix in the honey.

Next, roll the dough into a ball and roll out to about 1/4 inch thick. Then either slice into pieces, or use a small cookie cutter (I found that using a small cookie cutter was easier and less messy than slicing into pieces) (I used a small circle cookie cutter). Place treats on parchment paper on a baking sheets.

Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, and then turn off the oven and let the treats sit in the oven for about an hour.

Let them cool, and give them to your bunnies to enjoy!

The treats have Munchkin and Cici's approval! They love them!

Here is the link to the original recipe:


  1. New name for the treats - Cici's Cookies or Munchkin's Munchies. Except for the rabbit pellets, they sound pretty yummy!

  2. It's amazing you were able to get a picture of Munchkin with a treat in the nanosecond he has it before he's devoured it!
    Love and hugs,

  3. Hi! I really love-love-love this blog and I check in regularly! The girls loved your treats and I think they were very easy to make, so I'll give this blog a thumbs-up! (: I also love Critter Care, (which I will probably read right now as well).

    What a great blog, Daisy and Lily both agree! TOTALLY mentioning your blog on mine if it's okay with you.
