Quickest, Easiest Snack
Easy No-Cook Molting Snack Recipe
- 3 cups Grubblies
- 2 cup oats (rolled or steel cut oats)
- 1 cup raisins or dried cranberries
- 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2-3 mashed bananas
- ½ cup black oil sunflower seeds
- 2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger (1 tbsp if using powder)
- 1 tablespoon thyme
- 1 tablespoon oregano
- 2-3 cloves chopped garlic
- Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix well with a spoon.
- If you have a larger flock, you can divide the mixture into two halves. Serve one half right away. The other half will keep in the refrigerator for a couple of days if it’s covered.
- If you have a smaller flock, distribute the mix into silicone muffin tins or regular muffin tins lined with muffin cup liners. Compact mixture into each well.
- Freeze for 6-8 hours, or overnight. Then remove each puck and store in a baggie in the freezer. They will keep for a few months.
- Defrost each treat puck for about 15 to 20 minutes before serving to your feathered friends!
