1 c. flour – brown, potato, rice or whatever type of healthy flour
1/4 cup uncooked quinoa
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 mashed bananas
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until the tops start to brown and get a little crunchy.
Let cool for a few minutes then pop them out.
I place them all on a rack and then put the rack in the freezer overnight to freeze and the next morning i put them is separate smaller ziplock bags and put them in a larger ziplock bag.
If you don’t have hemp hearts – (I suggest you buy some as they are extremely healthy for both people and birds and parrots love them) – substitute any sort of nut, broken up fairly fine, or grape nuts, or seeds, or something like flax or chia seeds. Use your imagination.
The following recipe is something i made up when i had leftover pumpkin from making 'people' cookies. Pickles LOVED them.
- 1/2 cup pumpkin (fresh mashed or plain canned pumpkin)
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1 egg with shell (some people debate whether or not to give parrots egg shell - it can easily be left out)
- 1/4 cup walnuts - broken up small
- 1/3 of a pomegranate, scoop the seeds out and include the juice that comes with it. You can use more seeds if you like.

When i make my birdie breads, i cut them into rows and each is divided into dinner portion sizes. I then wrap each row and freeze them until ready to use, then i break off a portion.
For flour, i use whole wheat, rye, potato or corn flour.
