Date bon bons

This week I make some Date bon bons for the birds.
Must say that these are again very popular.

They are made of:
dates
raisins
buckwheat flour
banana
pinch of cinnamon
black and white sesame seeds
walnut
honey

Put everything except sesame seeds, in the blenders (dates takes some time), then mixed sesame seeds in, it will bee a thick paste. Smear on non-stick sheet and cut in with knife strokes/ cubes (let them stick together). In Dehydrator at 104 ˚ F degrees until it dried up (I let it in the Dehydrator for the night). It is still a little soft.


Halfway I take the bon bons blocks loosened.

Birdie banana bon bons

Inspired by  a recipe at Megan her blog ‘Parrot Foraging and Fun’  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)
