As popular as waffles are with people, why not make them for parrots? By simply substituting a few ingredients and adding healthy toppings or fillings, you can add waffles to your menu repertoire to change up your flock’s meals.
Step 1: Mix together your batter.
1 1/2 cups buckwheat flour.
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
A pinch of cinnamon
1 cup almond milk
1/4 cup of water
Mix dry ingredients together well. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Mix everything together.
Step 2: Pick and choose what to add to your batter, from healthy chopped vegetables to flax seed. More ideas here.
Step 3: It's time to cook your waffles! When purchasing a waffle iron, ensure that the cooking surfaces are not coated with teflon and employ a PFOA free nonstick coating. If you can’t find one that does not have a teflon coating, simply cook them outside or in a place that isn’t near your flock.
Step 4: Once your waffle is complete, you can serve it plain or get out your toppings!
