Healthy Hamster Treats You Can Make At Home

Healthy Hamster Treats You Can Make At Home

April 12, 2018

Hamsters are cute, small fur balls in the rodent family that are commonly kept as pets in homes.

They are relatively low maintenance pets and can live healthy lives with proper diets and care. We have compiled a list of nutritional hamster treats you can feed your pet, outside of the traditional hamster food that they’re sure to enjoy!

Veggie Crunches

What you’ll need:

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups of assorted vegetables
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup of oatmeal
  • 1 tsp. of baking powder

 

What you’ll do:

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees celsius, for these hamster treats. In a bowl, mix the flour, oatmeal and baking powder. Blend the assorted veggies together very well. Add one egg to the dry mix, then crush that egg’s shell and also add it to the mix and stir well. Take the second egg and add the white only to the mix (keeping the yolk in a separate bowl). Once again, crush the shell and add it to the mixture along with the blended vegetables. Blend well until it becomes a stiff dough. If you find that it is still a little runny, add a little more flour. Knead the dough and roll it into small balls, then brush them with the egg yolk. Place them on a baking sheet and bake for one hour. Once they are done, turn the oven off but let them sit inside overnight.

 

Hamster Balls

What you’ll need:

  • Oats
  • Seeds
  • Honey

 

What you’ll do:

In a bowl, mix small amounts of oats and seeds in a bowl and then add honey, until it becomes doughy. Place the sticky mix in a tray or inside cookie cutters, then refrigerate. After a few hours, the hamster treats should harden and will be ready to serve.

 

Hamster Birthday/Holiday Cake

What you’ll need:

  • 1 slice of wheat bread
  • 1/4 cup of mixed fruits (bananas, strawberries, apples)
  • 3 baby carrots
  • 4 chopped up milk bone dog treats

 

What you’ll do:

Cut the crust off the wheat bread. Blend the mixed fruit and carrots, for roughly 10 seconds. Spread the blended fruit mix on the bread. Sprinkle the chopped dog treats on top. Let it sit for 2 hours. Cut into 6 small pieces. Feed hamster treats to your pet.

 

Hamster Sushi

What you’ll need:

  • A handful of cooked rice
  • Raw vegetables (carrots, broccoli, spinach, cabbage)
  • Peeled sunflower seeds
  • Seaweed

 

What you’ll do:

Mash the rice and put it on the seaweed. Arrange the vegetables and sunflower seed on top of the rice, in any order you’d like. Roll the rice using the seaweed. Lastly, cut the sushi into small circles and serve your hamster treats.
