This week I make some Date bon bons for the birds.
Must say that these are again very popular.
They are made of:
pinch of cinnamon
black and white sesame seeds
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.

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)
