Bobbi's Basic Birdie Bread

Posted by: Bobbi Brinker - - August 29, 1996

2 boxes Jiffy corn muffin mix
3 tbs. baking powder
1 tsp Spirulina
2 eggs & shells (puree in blender)
4 jars baby food (carrots, sweet potatoes, a fruit, chicken/turkey with rice, noodles, or vegetables)
3/4 cup peanut butter
2 cups baby cereal (buy lowest percent of iron)
1-1/2 cups shredded/chopped veggies (usually carrots or broccoli). Almost any of the baby foods can be used but choose those with a high Vitamin A content.

Warning - the batter will be hard to mix! Mix wet & dry ingredients separately. Combine wet & dry ingredients along with shredded/chopped veggies. Spray 9x13 pan with cooking spray & bake about 30 minutes in a 400 degree preheated oven. Cool on rack, cut into squares & freeze in 3 day batches.

Optional Additions: chopped nuts, toasted soybean bits, shredded low fat cheese, dried fruit (small pieces), shaved cuttlebone, toasted sunflower kernels, pureed bananas, pureed beans (reduce baby foods by one jar ), peeled, pureed fresh mango, papaya or kiwi (reduce number of jars of baby food).
