- 3/4 c pitted dates
- 4 Tbsp almond butter
- 1/2 c steel oats
- 2 Tbsp crushed slivered almonds
Soak dates in very hot water for about 10 mins. Reserve some of the liquid.
Put the dates into a food processor and process until chopped and semi smooth.
Add the date mixture and the rest of the ingredients to a bowl and mix together.
If you need more water use the reserve instead –
Roll into about 1-inch balls. If you’re using them for medicine delivery place your pinky finger in the top making it like a small indention enough to add your medicine in so it can be soaked in to the oats (this way if you can’t handle your bird it might be a helpful way to get medicine in)
Place in freezer to set for about 10 minutes then store in the fridge for 7 days.
This recipe is a favorite for my macaws but my cockatoos will not eat it – so good luck – if y’all have cockatoos lol
