Bird Recipe: Home-made "avi-cakes"

This is a recipe provided by a Mommabird client. These are for treats only, not a main diet! We thought with the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, you could use a treat recipe!

Homemade Avi-Cakes

Mix in 2 cups each of three desired ingredients (below are examples)
(pick three things for a total of 6 cups of dry ingredients)

crushed cereal….. (Cheerios or Shredded Wheat..)
crushed pellets
instant oatmeal (rolled oats)
assorted seeds…..

Add honey or karo corn syrup, about 1 1/4 cups
(see why this is a treat? FYI: Avi-cakes are also sweetened- heavily!)

1. Stir until mixture is wet but not dripping. You may need to adjust the honey or dry ingredients to get it this way.

2. Pour it onto a cookie sheet, spread it out and bake at very low temperature like 200 F for about 45 minutes.

3. About half way through cooking, I usually score them it makes it easier to cut them when done.
You can also shape these around craft sticks with a hole drilled at one end for a hanging treat in the cage

4. These make terrific stocking stuffers or birthday gifts for the birds. My birds go crazy for these!
