This is my same base recipe that I have posted in the past, the only thing I changed was substituted red pepper, cilantro, and herbs, for sprout salad (from whole foods store), dandelion greens, 1 tbsp pine nuts & sunflower seeds, and one date.
Here is the original recipe posted to the forum. Items with an * were substituted as mentioned above.
Recipe Red Pepper & Cilantro Bird Bread:
1/2 cup pellets
1/2 cup spelt flour (you can use any flour you want)
1 jar of baby food (squash, yams, or carrots)
1/4 cup parakeet seed
1/2 cup diced red pepper & cilantro*
1 egg without shell
1/4 cup water
1 tsp of red palm oil
A few tbsps of fresh herbs*
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Let all of the wet ingredients soak with the pellets to soften them while you cut up the vegetables and prepare everything else. I spread some red palm oil in a 9 by 9 glass pan prior to pouring the mixture into the pan to prevent the bread from sticking. Cook for 45 minutes and test the center with a toothpick. If need be, return for increments of 5 minutes. Let cool, cut and separate pieces. You can then throw them into a freezer bag and take out enough pieces at a time for a weekly amount for your fids.
Here are some pictures of Oliver helping make it
. I love this recipe because it is easy enough (not too many ingredients) and the amount isn't so much either, so it allows for more variety for the birds because you'll go through it quicker.
Let's put the dry stuff together:
Add in the soaked pellets (in water and baby food), flour, and egg:
In pan for baking and then 45 minutes later, wah la!
