Cookie Recipe Safe for Hedgies
Hello everyone! :) Christmas is around the corner and I would love to make something for Chestnut. I already tried banana pancakes and he loves them! I just want to ask do you guys know any cookie recipe that is safe for hedgies? I want to try making him some cookies to try :D Thank you!

Are the ingredients in this recipe safe? I am scrapping out the peanut butter and parsley :)

The thing with that recipe, the peanut butter is probably a binding agent. So removing it would quite possibly change the outcome. Also I'd do a very small batch through the oven first to check the consistency and hardness so I can adjust from there.n
Found this website. http://www.puppyleaks.com/simple-dog-treat-recipes/ The one that stuck out after a quick skim was the 2 ingredient cookie.

Just a question - is wheat flour or oat flour alright to use? :)

nuttylover 12-03-2015 07:42 AM

Or is all purpose flour also alright to use? :D

That is tricky. I don't believe any research has been done on flours and hedgehogs. The variety of flours that do not contain wheat is growing rapidly, at least in America. This is because some people can't handle gluten, the protein in wheat and some other grains. It's also become a fad diet, and according to some will cure just about everything that ails you.
Now, that being said, I'll pull information from other areas. When a human baby is starting their first solid foods, they eat easily digestible grains. Baby cereal is generally oatmeal, rice cereal and there may be some others but those are the main ones I can recall.
So if you have access to rice or oat flour, I'd imagine they would possibly be preferable over any wheat flour.

Word of caution though: because of the gluten-free fad, the price on thing such as rice flour has gone up quite a bit.

True, but it's possibly cheaper where nutty is. Or there is a more economical gf flour.

Thank you everyone! :) I believe I do have access to both :D
