Son 2 loves birds, so he is gearing up to count all his feathered friends as they land on his bird feeder for the Big Garden Birdwatch, from the 28th to the 30th January.
Being keen and liking a freebie, he signed up for their free Big Garden Birdwatch pack, which arrived yesterday. It was a good pack and worth getting, except if contained amongst other things, a packet of bird watching coffee that we can't drink and a recipe card for bird watching biscuits, which were full of gluten and sugar.
So I rose to the challenge and came up with gluten free, refined sugar free cookies. They are based on the original, but you could just call them sunflower cookies.
If you haven't got your pack, sign up now. I will soon be releasing my gluten free recipe, and you too, even on a reduced sugar, grain free diet, can enjoy sunflower cookies while you count the birds!
In the meantime, stock up your cupboards: you'll need
walnuts or mixed nuts (1 cup)
small bag of sunflower seeds
vanilla with no other added ingredients
bicarbonate of soda
