"gnaw, gnaw" Biscuits: Teeth Tamers for Guinea Pigs and Rabbits Recipe
These homemade guinea pig and rabbit treats use their kibble, applesauce, shredded carrots and the fine hay bits from the bottom of their hay box. They are great for gnawing and keeping their teeth in check. *RECIPE UPDATED* 4/24/20 Tweaked ingredient amounts, order of mixing and added some ground oats (oat flour) to help them hold together better.
3/4cupold fashioned oats, groundor 3/4 cup oat flour
1cupsmall pieces of Timothy hay(I used the fine bits from bottom of box)
Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix together the kibble, applesauce and carrots to hydrate them.
Stir in the other ingredients. Mixture should be moist enough to hold together when squeezed in your hand. (May need to add 1 tablespoon or so of water as kibble and hay textures can vary.)
Spread mixture onto prepared baking sheet and pat until about 1/4 - 1/2 - inch thick.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and use a pizza wheel or knife to cut into squares (don't separate at this point.)
Continue baking for another 30 minutes.
Remove from oven and cut on the same scored lines. Separate them on the baking sheet. Bake another 30 minutes.
Use a small spatula to turn the squares over. Bake for 45-60 minutes more or until dried to the desired consistency. When they seem just about all dried, I usually turn off the oven and let them cool in the warm oven - helps dry them out even more.
Store in an airtight container.
