Birdie Dinner Bars
I could almost pass these bird bars off as brownies for my company, what do you think? I was actually just finishing off the bird left-overs in the freezer and I came up with this. I had a bag of a veggie Chop mix and another bag of a cooked lentils dish, I just mixed together and added flour to make it all stick together. I will alter the ingredients each time, this is just what I had on hand for this batch. The birds enjoy the bars for something different, and they seem to like being able to hold onto their dinner.
Birdie Dinner Bars:
1 cup chopped veggies
1/2 cup cooked lentils (or beans) with brown rice
1/2 cup cooked quinoa or buckwheat groats (optional, I’ve done it with and without)
1/4 cup cooked millet (optional, I’ve done it with and without)
1 cup apple sauce
1 1/2 cups mixture of buckwheat and spelt flours
Carrots with tops, broccoli, zucchini, bok choy, parsley and ginger root. Mixed with apple sauce and whole grain flours. Added to cooked lentils, brown rice, sweet potato, quinoa or millet, yellow and green split peas. Toppings: red chili pepper flakes, chia, sesame, flax and millet.
Sprinkled with toppings. Baked about 35 minutes at 350 degrees, cool and cut into bars.
