Today I made very dense nutritionally birdie bread for Bebe. Here's the recipe:
You will need 2 birdie bento boxes from this recipe
1/2 cup of spelt flour
1/2 cup flaxseed meal
3tablespoons hazelnut flour
1/2 cup of mixed flours ( kamut, oat, chia)
1 chia egg (3 teaspoons of chia and 3teaspoons of warm water allow to sit overnight in refrigerator)
1 1/2tablespoon of unrefined coconut oil
A scant 1/4teaspoon of baking soda
1tablespoon of Braggs ACV
1/4 cup of finely chopped broccoli
Ice cold water (ice and water)
Spices like cinnamon, ginger, cayenne, turmeric. Dehydrated, spinach, arugula, kale, parsley, basil.
The bento boxes I use were bean mixture and carrot mixtures, with adding 2-3 tablespoons of water to each box to moisten. Bake @ 350°
In large mixing bowl dump the bento boxes and chia egg. Beat until well blended. I sifted all the flour together, adding the baking soda. While beating add coconut oil, flour and ice water, 3 times, Beating well with each addition. Add ACV with last mixture this will activate the baking soda. Beat until smooth. In 9x9 inch brownie pan that is greased with coconut oil and a parchment paper lined, spoon in mixture, smoothing it out, top with a sprinkle of hemp hearts.
Bake at 350° until firm about 1 hour until firm cool in pan for 20 minutes. Then cool completely. This bread must be kept in refrigerator or frozen. Cut into quarters and slice thinly less than 1/4" thick. You can also bake a 2nd time like biscotti if it's too moist for your bird.

The second pan the thicker pieces I cut into chunks for my little guy. Some of larger slices will go to Nick and Andrea for their macaws.
Just a side note: if you feel that they are still moist for your bird's liking. Turn off the oven and put the pans back in until oven cools completely.

Well I talked to Nick tonight, bird biscotti was huge hit for Fast Freddie and Little Eddie, same with Andrea's two. Nick will be picking up the rest of what I have. Bebe doesn't like them :(.
