How to make raspberry cookies

Blend the pellets and oats together into a dust, and puree the raspberries with the dried mint. You can use fresh mint if you want, but double the amount that you add if you choose to do so. Combine all of the ingredients together until you form a dough that’s about the consistency of a typical cookie dough. Add more pellet dust or water if necessary to get the right consistency.

Using a teaspoon, place the cookies on a prepared baking sheet at about 1 inch in diameter. Flatten the cookies with the back of a fork to create a criss-cross pattern on the top of them. Place the cookies in the oven for 20 minutes, then turn the oven off so that the cookies can have more time to dry out. 

Once the cookies have dried, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool completely before giving to your rabbit. You should limit your rabbit to only one of these per day, and keep the rest in a container on the

How many treats should a rabbit have in a day?

Even these healthier treats should be kept to a minimum. We want our rabbit’s main food to be grass-based hay, such as timothy hay. So try to keep the amount of treats you give your rabbit to 1-2 per day, unless you make them into smaller sizes.

Other considerations for these recipes

  • Wash vegetables and appliances before using them for rabbit treats. Make sure to rinse off the fruits and vegetables to avoid adding any residual dirt or pesticides into your rabbit treats. You also don’t want to contaminate the rabbit treats with people food, so make sure to wash any tools and appliances thoroughly before using them.
  • Other fruits and vegetables can be added and replaced in these recipes. You don’t have to use the fruits and vegetables that I use. If your rabbit prefers different foods, simply add them in or make the substitution.
  • Store homemade treats in the refrigerator or the freezer. You can leave the treats in an airtight container on the counter for about a week, but if you expect them to last longer than that, you’ll want to keep them in the refrigerator. If you are making them in bulk, you’ll want to keep extras in the freezer.
