Pumpkin & Sweet potato seed cakes

I made these today and they do like it so far. I used pumpkin and sweet potato in mine.

1/3 (canned pumpkin, cooked yam, or cooked sweet potato)
1/3 harrisons high potency mash
1/3 parakeet seed

I spooned it onto cookie sheets and smashed it with a fork. Cooked on 225 in the oven and turned them over every 30 mins until they were dry. It took about 1.5 hours. It dries them out like a granola bar. Gave some to the birds and went on a walk, came back and it was dust lol!

I don't feed my birds (any of my animals, actually) anything with soy but I make similar cookies for them, only I use oat groats and nuts instead of seeds and whole grain flours instead of the Harrison's.
