I’m Baaaack…Just Like The Springtime Birds



Hello, friends! Thanks for being here with me. Let’s start with one of my new favorite recipes…but this one’s for the birds! Seriously!


My husband and I were gifted a suet-style bird feeder. I wasn’t familiar with this kind, but thought it was so cool. I read the ingredients in the pre-packaged suet and thought, when this is gone, I can totally make my own…and that’s what I did!


Recipe:

  • 1c suet, melted

  • 2c oats

  • 3c cornmeal

  • 1c flour

  • 2 crushed eggshells

  • 1c peanut butter

  • Handful of assorted nuts & seeds (and/or birdseed)


Directions:

Mix the oats, cornmeal, flour, & eggshells. Add in the peanut butter & stir until crumbly. Pour in the suet (it may be warm), but reserve approximately 1 tbsp. Stir and press into a square container (plastic works best here). Press in nuts/seeds/birdseed on top and seal with a dab of the reserved fat. Freeze for approximately 2 hours. Turn over & pop out. Put in feeder.


It may melt when put out in warmer temps. However, it was in the 70s when I first put this out and it completely disappeared by the next morning. I guess the birds like organic eats, too!



Oh, and I have to add - Low/NO PUFAs are a thing - but it's still so hard throwing out your cupboard-full, so this is a great way to get those items out of the house without them going to waste, and supporting the local wildlife at the same time! I linked the reel I made on IG if you want a quick overview here.


Let me know if you give this a try. As always, #getsatiated
