Inspired byย  a recipe at Megan her blog ‘Parrot Foraging and Fun’ย  I immediately wanted to make a tasty snack for my birds. The recipe is adapted to the stuff I had in stock and it became delicious Birdie banana bon bons!

buckwheat flour, banana, chopped nuts, raisins, coconut flakes and a tablespoon organic palm kernel oil

sunflower seeds, buckwheat, flaxseed and quinoa flakes.
Mixed it and make little balls than roll through quinoa flakes.
Out of the oven: (30 min. 350F)
