Muffins for the Winter Garden Birds

For the birds that do not migrate, it is often hard in winter to find food when the ground is frozen and especially when it is covered with snow. You can really help them get through the winter months by preparing muffins for them to eat. The fat in the shorting gives them extra energy and the muffins are filled with all of the things they like. Place the muffins in a bird feeder or bird feeding house and enjoy the sight of the little feathered friends as they come and pick away at their treat.



Muffins for the Birds 1

For this project you will need:

- silicone muffin forms (helps that the cold mass does not stick when you try to remove it from the form)
- 200 grams of shorting (coconut shortning gives good results)
- 200 grams of bird food combined with nuts, raisins, oats, sunflower seeds, etc...
- pan and cooking spoon


1. Melt the shortning in the pot. Once melted add the bird food and mix well.

2. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cups and place into the refrigerator until cold and solid.
3. Once solid, the muffins can be removed from the forms and placed in places where the birds will find them. Be careful not to place them anywhere where a cat can attack the bird while it is enjoying its meal.
