*For maximum nutrition, use 1 TBS organic palm fruit oil instead of cooking oil when baking.*
Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C) .
Combine entire bag of mix with 2 whole organic eggs - no shell (remove yolk for less fat), 1 TBS high quality organic vegetable oil (or red palm fruit oil), and 1 cup (235 ml) water.
Fill greased bread pan or muffin tins and bake for 25-35 minutes.
Do not bake in nonstick (PTFE-coated) cookware, as the fumes are toxic to birds.
If prepared with the addition of fruits, vegetables or nuts, Bird Bread should be considered a "treat" and fed only in limited quantities (no more than 10% of the daily food allotment when combined with all other treats).
Can be served warm.
Some flavorings (vanilla, maple) or herbs can be added as long as they do not change the nutritional content.
Bird Bread can be stored for 1 week in the refrigerator and up to 6 weeks in the freezer after baking.
Baked Bird Bread can be divided into portions, wrapped in plastic wrap and placed back in the original Harrison's Bird Foods bag for storage in the freezer.
Bird Bread should not be reheated in a plastic container.
My yellow nape parrot loves the hot pepper, I do add more heat to to it. It took a while for me to fine a new food for him that he would like. I make the whole package and freeze the biscuits in small bags of 7 so all I have to do is take out one pre week. He gets one of the biscuits along with his fruits and nuts Bobbi is about 45 years old now. The vet said that the diet I’m feeding him is very good. He’s in great condition and health.
