Recently Cooper and I were included in a friends’ Chinese New Year tradition of sending red envelopes to loved ones. Our friend Natasha and her husband make bunny treats for their two girls at home and sent Cooper a few pieces in his red envelope. He loved them, absolutely loved them! He took one piece and ran away with it in his mouth, later realizing he dropped more than half of it on his mad dash trying to get away from me. Like I’m going to steal it from him, ha!
Well Natasha and her hubby shared their simple yet amazing recipe with us to share with all of you!
Preheat oven at 180 degrees
1 cup of pellets soften with hot water
1 cup of kale
3/4 cup of organic canned pumpkin
You can also substituted the organic pumpkin with a whole banana (nana how bunny parents like to call them)
6 grated baby carrots
Puree the organic canned pumpkin (or banana) with the kale and mix with the soften pellets. This will make a sugar like cookie dough, you may add more pumpkin or nana if the mix seems a bit too dry.
Add the 6 grated baby carrots to the mix by hand. You can now make them into any shape you like or you can roll out and cut into squares on parchment paper. Natasha suggests using a pizza cutter if you’re making them into squares.
Natasha and her husband bake their bunny treats at 180 degrees for 4-5 hours, but you can use your judgment and adjust the temp and time. Trial & error, that’s what I say!
Hope your bunnies enjoy the homemade treats too!
