Homemade Avicakes

I mix even amounts like:

2 cups crushed cereal..... (Cheerios or Shredded Wheat..) 
2 cups crushed pellets or instant oatmeal cereal 
2 cups assorted seeds

Add about 1 and a quarter cups of Honey
Stir until mixture is wet but not dripping
You may need to adjust the honey. you can also use corn syrup if you don't like the honey
Pour it onto a cookie sheet and spread it out
Bake at very low.... like 200 - 225 for about 45 minutes
Half way through cooking I usually score them it makes it easier to cut them when done
You can also shape these around craft sticks with a hole drilled at one end for a hanging treat in the cage
These make terrific stocking stuffers or birthday gifts for the birds
