While purchasing treats from a big name brand will save you time, you can never be fully sure of what they actually put inside their treats to make them so yummy. The only way to have full control over knowing what's inside of them is to make them yourself.
You'll have to spend a bit of time in the kitchen experimenting with different foods, but you'll finally have the ease of mind knowing that your rabbit will be munching on all natural rabbit treats that are healthy for them. To keep your little one happy and healthy, remember to give them no more than one or two a day of the treat you make!

Best way to start is to look at what others have come up with and see if any of the ingredients are foods you've given your rabbit before and they've liked. Read through some of these recipes to see if any of them jump out as being perfect for your rabbit!
You can also do your own experimenting with different ingredients you know your rabbit loves to eat! While you decide between getting inspiration or experimenting yourself, try making some of these homemade rabbit cookies that we found on The Cape Code.
These DIY rabbit cookies are meant as a treat for your rabbit only. They should not be used as a substitute to their daily feeding of Timothy Hay or Orchard Grass.
Treats are a fun way to spoil our little ones, just like giving ice cream as a dessert for children! It gives you a way to either reward them for doing something good or as a fun way to change up their routine. Just make sure that your rabbit's diet is made up of 80% grass hay. This most closely resembles the natural feeding habits of rabbits in the wild and promotes proper digestion and dental health. Bonus: the constant foraging and grazing encouraged by hay helps to keep them physically active and mentally stimulated!
