Birdie Muffins

Today I am sharing a recipe that I've created based on a bird bread mix. These mini muffins include tons of nutrition for your little bird. I hope your feathered friends enjoy them!

Birdie Muffins




1/2 cup organic whole wheat flour

1/2 cup wheat germ

1/4 tsp baking soda 

1 washed free range egg with shell

1 1/2 Tbs organic virgin olive oil 

1/2 cup organic apple apricot sauce

A few slices of carrot

A few leaves of organic baby spinach

A few small florets of broccoli

1/2 cup seed mix

Suggested seed mix: Wheat berries, millet and your bird’s regular seed

Veggies: You can use other veggies, but be certain that they are safe for your bird




Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Grease a mini muffin pan

Mix flour, wheat germ and baking soda together

Wash the egg

Beat the egg, egg shell, oil and applesauce in a blender

Add the veggies to the blender and mix until finely chopped

Add the wet mix to the dry ingredients, stirring until smooth

Stir in the seed mix

Fill the mini muffin sections 1/2 full

Bake for 11 minutes at 350 degrees.

Cool on a rack

Refrigerate a few muffins and freeze the rest for later




These muffins may be a little big for keets or lovies, so make sure you break them into little pieces when you feed them to your bird.
