Birds Can't Resist This Peanut Butter Treat!

Very Best Easy Peanut Butter Bird Treat

Prep. Time:  5 min.
Cooking Time:  15 min.
Total Time:  20 min.


* ½ c. crunchy or smooth peanut butter
* ½ c. shortening
* ½ c. flour
* 1-½ c. cornmeal
* ½ c. cracked corn
* ½ c. black oil sunflower seeds
* ¼ c. raisins or currants
* ¼ c. dried apricots, apples or cherries

Clean plastic containers. . . I use yogurt cups, but any small plastic container will do just fine.


In a saucepan over low heat, melt peanut butter and shortening.  Stir in cornmeal and flour until combined.  Add cracked corn and sunflower seeds.  Remove from heat and mix in raisins, currants, and dried fruit.

Transfer to plastic cups and allow to cool.  Refrigerate overnight and serve to your hungry, grateful birds!  You can use an offset spatula to fill the holes of a suet log with this yummy mixture.  Freeze any extra for later use.
Peanut Butter Bird Treat is very popular with the birds!
