Happy thanksgiving!
Here is a wonderful holliday recipe that I concocted today! Hope you and your flock enjoy!

Birdy Pumpkin Nut Puffs

Ingredients:
½ part flax seed
1 part oats (either rolled, whole or steel cut)
1 part shelled raw almonds (may toast if desired)
1 part shelled raw pecans (may toast if desired)
any other nut or grain you wish to add –perhaps cannabis seed or wheat berries
plain canned pumpkin
cinnaman and/or nutmeg and/or ground cloves (optional)


Equipment:
Mixing bowl
Spoon
Oven or microwave
Mini-muffin tin or paper plate
Oil for greasing tin


To make these I took the flax, oatmeal, almonds and pecans and processed them into a flour in my blender – then I took and added canned pumpkin until it was a paste. Then I dropped small dallops into my (greased!) muffin tin and cooked at (convection) 350’F for 7 minutes. Alternatively, you may add less pumpkin and roll into balls. Place the balls on a paper plate and microwave for about 2 minutes, or until they reach desired crunchiness.
For large birds you may opt to not initially grind up the ingredients, but just throw them all together, or only loosely chop them. I haven’t made it this way, as less is wasted by my birds if it is all together.

Optionally you may either add in or sprinkle on a small amount of cinnoman, nutmeg or ground cloves. I sprinkled those three alternately across my little “muffins”.

Serve to birdies slightly warm or cool as a “footheld” nutty holiday treat!
