Favorite Cinnamon Crackers

Print Friendly

This was a big hit with our birds! While no two batches of birdfood have ever been exactly the same, we keep coming back to this recipe to make something similar since the birds liked it so much. Having dehydrated food on hand can make for an occasional easy meal replacement.


1/2 – 1/3 cup dry whole sesame seeds

1/4 – 1/2 cup virgin coconut oil

1/8 – 1/4 cup dry flax seed

1 large or 2 small heads kale

1 pint blackberries

1 pound strawberries

1 large zucchini with skin

1 medium beet

2 small pieces of ginger root

6 cinnamon sticks

2-4 tsp ground whole (green) stevia

7 cups soaked sprouts (grains, seeds, lentils & mung beans). Start with about 4 cups of dry sprouts and soak overnight to get the 7 cups for this recipe.


Of the first three ingredients use the lower amount for birds who need less fat in their diet. Reserve 1/4 cup or so of sprouts to stir in whole to make the food look more appealing. Grind all other ingredients in the food processor. Mix everything together and stir in the reserved whole sprouts and stevia.

Spread onto dehydrator sheets at about 1/4 – 1/3 inch thick. Scoring the food will help it dry more thoroughly. Dehydrate for up to 24 hours, flipping the food after about 8 hours. This recipe will fill the 5 tray excalibur dehydrator.
