The lack of wild-sourced nutrient variety for rabbits in the Winter can be worrisome, but thankfully we have nutritious dried options to better simulate the wild diet all year round.

This homemade adult bunny rabbit treat recipe is formulated with a rabbit’s wild Summer diet in mind, with a touch of seaweed serving as a natural vitamin & organic mineral supplement. It would also be a suitable treat for other small pets with similar dietary requirements.

Wild Winters Natural Supplement Rabbit Treats

We packed as much variety as possible into these nutritious treats for bunnies. However, it’s easy to substitute for ingredients you don’t have or double up on some that you do have. We buy most of ours from Starwest Botanicals.

1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup wheat or oat flour
3 TBSP organic dandelion leaf powder
2 tsp organic raspberry leaf powder
3 tsp organic chickweed powder
1/4 cup organic barley grass powder
1/4 cup organic wheat grass powder
1/2 tsp organic alfalfa powder
1/4 tsp organic rosehip powder
1 tsp organic calendula flower powder
1 tsp organic chamomile flower powder
1 tsp seaweed/algae powder
3 large strawberries, mashed
1/4 cup fresh cilantro (finely chopped)
1 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup unseasoned vegetable broth

  1. Combine ingredients in a bowl and mix well. You may have to add a little more broth or flour to reach desired consistency.
  2. Use a small spoon (baby spoons work great) to scoop mixture and roll into small balls.
  3. Bake: 350º for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Refrigerate or freeze in air tight container.

Serving:  1 small treat/day

  1. I’ve twice made this recipe for my rabbits. The treats freeze great and they’re good for them.

  2. Us too! The kids already love our Easter rabbit! We learned everything we could before we adopted him and the shelter asked a million questions to make sure we’d keep him (a good practice!) Wait until they see him eating these treats and realize just how spoiled he really is! Thanks for the recipe!

  3. We just got a new rabbit for Easter too so I’m doing some online learning (we have a book too). Happy Hoppy is adorable and we’ll spoil him with treats and in every other way.

  4. We adopted 2 rabbits for our grandchildren for Easter, they’ll be cared for by us on our farm. Making these treats for them will be a fun thing for us to do when they visit.

  5. I breed rabbits and my dad built a beautiful hutch and playing area for them. They are spoiled and never sold in stores. This recipe is full of nutrition and I like how it mimics their natural diet. It’s more like a supplement than a treat.
