    Here you are Gravehearted  and for anyone else who cares to test them on their bunnies.  I adapted this recipe from a "Bunny Biscuit" recipe on the main HRS web site, so I cannot take all the credit.

    Bunny Cookies
     
    1 29 oz can of pure pumpkin (not pie filling, it has spices)
    1 or 2 bananas, mashed whatever size you have (Make sure they  are at perfect ripeness, not beyond or it will cause stomach upset.)
    2 tablespoons honey (I often cut this back to 1 because of the sweetness of the banana)
    1/2 cup quick oats
    7 cups oat flour
    2 jelly roll pans or cookie sheets
     
    Combine, pumpkin, mashed banana, honey and oats, mix well. Slowly add flour cup by cup (you’re looking to make this dough a pizza dough consistency) until ready to roll out onto a floured surface and knead for about 5 min or until elastic. Split dough in half. Roll each out to be about 1/4 inch thick, sprinkle bottom of pans with quick oats, then transfer dough to pan and press to adjust to size of pan. Cut into 1 inch squares with a pizza cutter or knife. Repeat for other half of dough. Bake at 275 degrees Fahrenheit until golden brown and dry (about 2 hours, maybe longer), but not burnt on the bottom. You’ll want them to be good and dry. It may take longer where you live depending on humidity.
    Of course feel free to half this recipe. : ) Store extras in the freezer and thaw a bunch as needed. This batch makes enough for several months. These cookies should be given sparingly (one per day) as they can be fattening and you don’t want your bunny to have too much. You may want to cut them in smaller squares, bear in mind they shrink after baking. I use oat flour instead of wheat as I think it is a more digestible grain and easier on bunny tummies. I buy my flour and oats from my local health food store as they sell it cheaply in re-packaged plastic bags in the refrigerator section. Some stores sell it in bulk too.

    You’re welcome and you must let me know how they like them! My two LOVE them!  I know that in the past others have told me about their own additions of pineapple and apple as well. : ) It’s a great thing for them to munch on for their teeth as well.

    Wow, that receipe must make an enormous amt of cookies! lol

    I used the HRS biscuit receipe as well but I also tweeked it because my buns didnt like the original kind. This is what I did:

    1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
    1/2 banana, mashed until really creamy
    1 tbsp honey
    1/4 cup ground oats, ground finely in a coffee grinder

    They really messy but it makes about a dozen or so small cookies and they are nice and soft.

    We wanted to sell in our shelter store but they just dont have a long enough shelf life

    LOL yes it does! My two get one each at bed time and a dozen would not last for long in this house. . I store the extras in the freezer. These were also a "mutation" from that recipe as well as my bunnies were not fond of them either, I had heard from one of the ladies at the shelter store they substituted in pumkin and wow my two LOVE them! No, they don’t have a long shelf life, so the store by me kept them in the freezer and posted a sign that they were for sale.
