|These thick, sticky, and chewy cookies are made from real fruit, nuts, peanut butter, and honey.|
| ||1 C||Any dried fruit (mixed or single fruit)|
| ||1/2 C||Rolled oats|
| ||1/2 C||Raisins|
| ||1/4 C||Any seeds and/or nuts|
| ||1 T||Peanut Butter|
| ||2 T||Honey|
|Smaller birds may need these to be hung somewhere where they can peck and nibble on them, while these may be the prefect size for larger birds to hold on to. They are sweet and delicious, and humans can enjoy them too!
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. If using nuts, prepare them by placing the nuts into a plastic baggie. Crush them with a rolling pin or other heavy object until the nuts have been reduced to tiny chunks.
2. Add the nuts, dried fruit, oatmeal, and raisins to a food processor. Process everything for several seconds until you have a sticky mixture that is free of any large chunks.
3. Prepare a cookie or baking sheet by greasing it with margarine, oil, or non-stick cooking spray. Set it aside for now.
4. Transfer the sticky mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add the peanut butter and honey, and mix well. The mixture will be very thick and very hard to mix. You can use your hands to mix it, by covering them with plastic baggies. Or stir vigorously.
5. Once the peanut butter and honey have been added, use your hands to knead the mixture to knead the mixture to a roll-able consistency. Knead for several minutes.
6. Begin to tear of small pieces of the mixture and roll them into 1/2 ball between your hands. Then arrange each ball into the prepared cookie sheet. Repeat with the remaining mixture until all the mixture has been formed into balls and arranged onto the cookie sheet. Be sure to space the balls about 1 apart to prevent them merging and sticking together.
7. Place the cookie sheet into the preheated oven. Bake for about 20 minutes, then remove the cookie sheet from the heat and allow the cookies to cool completely. The cookies are ready to serve once they are cool to the touch. Store any leftovers in an airtight container.
