Birdie Sweet Potato Cookies [healthy recipe]

This recipe is great for any pet including parrots. It's an easy recipe with not so many steps. 
Baking for your pet gives us great joy. Most of us sometimes are unsure what pet food or treat is safe, without allergens, or preservatives. By baking ourselves, we can eliminate or add ingredients according to your pet's life. 
If you need to eliminate flour, feel free to. I know animals have allergies to certain grains. Most cookies are made with whole wheat flour. But you can substitute coconut, rice, gram, or any other flour which might be better for you. Just google the substituting ratios as some flours are denser than others. 
For eliminating eggs. My favorite and only one which I would recommend is flaxseed meal. 

This pet recipe includes sweet potatoes which can be brought fresh, then peeled, cooked, and mashed. To save some time, you can also purchase canned carrot, sweet potatoes, or pumpkin mash) 
Vitamin A deficiency is very common in parrots which causes bacteria infections and other illnesses. Therefore providing them with sweet potatoes is a great way to battle this deficiency. 


  • 1 1/2cup mash sweet potato (you can also use canned carrot, sweet potatoes or pumpkin) * see note below
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 3 cups flour. (Whole wheat, coconut, chickpea, etc)
  • 2 tablespoon of flax meal
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


1. Mix all the ingredients into a thick batter.
2. Roll out batter into a 1/2 inch thick. Cut using cookies cutters or freehand
3. Bake at 350 f for 20 minutes.
* you can make your own sweet potato mash by chopping and steaming the sweet potato then mash them. Or you can buy already prepared mash sweet potatoes, pumpkin, and or carrots.
