It has organic flour, organic corn meal, eggs with shells, hulled millet. No milk, or oil, but rather water. Does anybody know this basic recipe?

Thank-you so very much!

1995, 1994, 1993. I can't really remember. It's an old basic recipe... I do remember that it had organic applesauce instead of oil. Anybody know this basic recipe?

Some of the Ingredients I can rememember ::

Organic Corn Meal
Whole Wheat Flour
Hulled millet
Natural honey
Whole Eggs
Applesauce (Instead of Vegetable or Olive Oil)
Water

You'd bake it in a 9 x 13 pan, cut it into half inch squares, and freeze. If you were worried about the Bread sticking a little whole wheat flour in the glass pan worked great!

It's just a basic Birdie Bread, but without all the unnecessary sugars, cooking oils * or milk. I liked it because it didn't have all the that uneeded stuff, and it was so easy to add whatever you wanted to the mix before baking :: Fresh fruit or fresh vegetables, small nuts...

{* Cold pressed Olive Oil can be used to grease the pan though.}

My cockatiel's loved it, and my lovebird's used to go nuts whenever they heard me thawing some out!

I just know my QP would go crazy for some, and it was so easy to make that it's driving me crazy I cannot find the recipe! I'd make one of the other's but honestly nobody in my house needs the sugars, or oils/ fats!

(All the birds, humans, and cats are pudgie enough... [My tiels used to "share" a little with "their" pet cats if they were feeling generous!] lol...)

Anybody have this very Basic Recipe?

I went to the store and bought an organic bread mix, came home and cut up broccoli, green beans, fresh corn off the cob, green peas, grated carrot. I got the processor out and threw in two eggs whole, oats, the veggies and then I had this ‘bright’ idea, I’ll throw in some of those pellets he wont eat. So I mixed it all up, put it into my bread mix, put it in a tray and sprinkled some seeds on top and baked it in the oven. When i pulled it out, it was so moist and looked soooo yummy.

All excited, I wait for it to cool down to a nice warm bread and I cut a piece off for Pluto. At first he proclaims how yummy it is however after a few minutes he looks at me and runs down to the side of the cage asking “Do you want some?” meaning he doesn’t like it and wants something else. I check the leftovers to find he has picked out the corn and peas and left the rest!!! For goodness sake I could have just put them in a bowl on their own instead of going to all this trouble!


THIS IS WHAT I FOUND NOT MY IDEA!!!! JUST CAME ACROSS IT ON TALKING QUAKER PARROT.COM!!! HOPE IT HELPS!!!!
