Peanut Butter Seed Balls

A nutritious easy snack to feed your birds in the winter

  • 5-6 C Popped corn with no salt, don't use microwaved, like Jiffy Pop
  • 1 C Raisons, or other dried fruit
  • 3/4 C Peanuts, not salted, as salt can be toxic to birds
  • 2 1/2 C Peanut butter, I like to use the natural kind
  • 1/2 C Corn Syrup
  • 1 C Mixed Bird Seed
  1. Melt the peanut butter and corn syrup on low heat until smooth and syrupy

  2. Add in rest of ingredients and stir until everything is completely moistened.

  3. Let cool until cool enough to form into small balls. Then form the mixture into balls about 1 - 2 inches in diameter by hand.

  4. Use natural jute twine, wrapping around the balls firmly and creating a hanger to tie to the tree branch.
