Chico's Muffins

Posted by: Anne Eilers - anne8@centralminera.com - June 26, 2000

1/2 cup Whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup Harrison's Mash or Lifetime diet fine
2 Tbs. baking powder
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup hulled organic sesame seed
1 egg (you can sterilize the shells and crush them in too)
1/4 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup orange juice (fresh) may need to add a touch more for consistency

Combine dry ingredients. Mix well, add wet ingredients. Mix well and spoon into small birdy size muffin tins (use spray like Pam to avoid sticking). If you used the small tins you should get approx 2 dozen little muffins just the perfect size for snacking on.

Plus you get the added benefit of sneaking some Harrison's into a picky bird's diet. You can use various different seeds/nuts and apple juice works just as well. I sometimes sneak in an added 1 tbs. liquid calcium. My Grey, Chico, loves these and smack's his "lips" whenever he sees them.
