Birdseed Bread

This is a fun activity to accompany a study on birds. It also makes a pretty good camp or hiking bread as the seeds add protein for energy and raise the nutrition value.


2 cups biscuit-making mix (e.g., Bisquick)
1/2 cup cold water
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 T. butter or margarine
2 T. sesame seeds
2 T. salted sunflower seeds or other chopped nuts


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Mix 2 cups of baking mix, 1/2 cup cold water, and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder to a soft dough in a bowl with a fork.

2. Pat the dough on ungreased cookie sheet into a 10 inch circle.

3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat. Brush the dough circle with the melted butter. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sesame seeds and 2 tablespoons sunflower nuts. Firmly press the seeds and nuts into the dough with a rubber scraper or spatula or the back of a spoon.

4. Cut the circle into 12 equal wedges (like a pie), but donít cut all the way through. Just deeply score.

5. Bake in 425 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve warm with honey if desired. The bread should easily break into wedges for serving.
