Makes around 10 medium-sized foraging cookie treats. These cookies are amazingly healthy, and if made with your seed mix can be used for feeding purposes as well as enrichment. Intended for Hamsters, Gerbils, and Mice. Serve one to three a week, and they’ll keep longer if refridgerated. Do not store in a bag.
- 3 tbs Seedmix of Your Choice.
- 1-2 tbs Flour, Buckwheat is Prefered
- 2-3 tbs Safe Fruits and/or Vegetables
- Preheat your oven/toasteroven to 350f.
- Next take your fruits/vegetables and mush/pureé them very well; berries work the best and don’t require a blender to make them the batter-y texture needed. If you want more fruity/vegetably flavor simply have more in the recipe. If you want less fruit/veggie flavor but don’t have the right texture add some water.
- Now mix half a tablespoon of flour in and combine them completly. The mix should be like a batter, so add more or less flour to achive the texture.
- Next take a tablespoon of your seedmix and add it in. Mix more in until you have a clumpy, somewhat sticky dough. Combine very well.
- Scoop half-whole tablespoon portions onto a baking tray, make sure you have parchment paper on the pan. Non-stick substances are not recommended.
- Bake for 8 or more minutes until they darken in colour and are dense but a little springy to the touch. You can cut one in half to check if you’d like to.
- Let the cookies cool completely before serving.
- Now serve them to your small pet!
