- 1 small carrot, pureed
- 1/2 banana, mashed until creamy
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1/4 cup timothy based rabbit pellets, ground finely in a coffee grinder ONLY used for rabbit food… NOT used for COFFEE
- 1/4 cup ground oats ground finely in a coffee grinder, as above
- Mix pureed carrot, banana and honey.
- Add pellet powder and ground oats.
- Mix until blended and then knead in your hands for 1-2 minutes.
- Roll out the “dough” in 1/8- to 1/4-inch thick layers between sheets of plastic wrap
- Cut into small cookies (about 3/4 inch across). Place cut shapes onto a parchment paper covered cookie sheet- this will prevent sticking and doesn’t add any grease.
- Bake at 325 degrees for about 30 minutes (check to make sure they are not browning too much).
- Turn off the heat and for a crunchier treat, turn off oven and leave in until oven cools.
Be creative! You can make changes, like adding apple, pear, etc…, in addition to or instead of carrot!

These recipes are meant to be used as treats only, not as the primary diet of your pet. Do not substitute avocado, chocolate, or products with caffeine or alcohol for any of the ingredients we recommend. Due to their unique digestive tracts, herbivores like guinea pigs, rabbits, and chinchillas should not be fed diets high in sugars and starches. Treats that contain sugar (like honey) or starches should be limited to less than 1% of the overall diet. Although most herbivores enjoy treats and tolerate them without medical issues, there are always a few that have sensitivities to certain types of foods. Consult your veterinarian about what is appropriate for your own pet.
