I have one spoiled bunny, he gets his alfalfa pellets in the morning, hay all day and then a bedtime treat every night. He knows when its time for his treat, the TV turns off, I brush my teeth, and he starts going crazy in his cage. I worry that commerical treats are bad for him, plus they get EXPENSIVE! Also I was buying the small bags of hay at petsmart and were always left with the hay power at the bottom to throw away. I decided to make him a bedtime treat using this powder.

Ingredients:

Hay power (or regular, just blend it)

Oatmeal

Bananas and or unsweetend applesauce

 

Process:

Use equal parts hay power and oatmeal, I ususally use about 3/4th a cup of each. Put in blender and blend until powdery. In bowl mix powder and bananas until a paste. When I have bananas that are going bad I peel them, bag them and freeze them. I use these thawed frozen bananas. If it is not pasty enough I add a scoop of applesauce. Then use hay powder to thinly coat counter top and rolling pin. Roll pasty dough to about 1/4in thick. I use parchement paper to transfer it to a baking sheet where I bake the sheet for about 30 mins, flipping once with the parchement paper that is in place, I then remove it. Once the sheet cools, I use scissors to cut 1 inch cubes, I put them in tupperware. I have never had them go bad before using them all so I am not sure the shelf life, but its at least a month. My Szurke goes absolutely CRAZY! Juse seeing the container makes him go nuts.

That is so clever! Using the hay dust at the bottom is great. You might also check out your pellets bag for the dust and crumbled pellets there as well.

That sound yummy. It's a good idea to use the hay dust. (I've probably thrown away at least a bag full of dust)

I've made things like this for my guinea pigs. I'm wary of feeding too much fruit, because of the sugar, so sometimes I use a vegetable puree/baby food instead of the banana or applesauce.
