Hello & welcome to our bird-themed recipe for Pokémon’s best known and best loved bird family; Pidgey, Pidgeotto & Pidgeot. These feathered ‘mons are among the first & most frequently encountered Pokémon in a trainer’s journey and Pidgeys are surely the main inhabitant of the skies over Kanto & Johto (and obviously they also like the tall grass). We Bakémon masters have deduced that aside from Berries, Pidgeys/Pidgeottos/Pidgeots enjoy eating nuts and fruit, similar to commonly seen birds in our back gardens. Hence, this week’s recipe is for some super tasty ‘bird food cookies’ made from oats, nuts & apples (& also chocolate chips but please don’t try to feed chocolate to any birds, including Pidgey & its relatives). We also threw in some yummy spices like cinnamon because they’re like, totally best friends with oat cookies. This recipe definitely takes on the form of being ‘inspired’ by Pokémon rather than aiming to look like them; we tried to give the cookies bird faces but they looked creepy & deformed after being baked so we gave up. You could try it though, or maybe try cutting your cookies into bird shapes if you like- half the fun is experimenting so get creative! One of the major pluses of this week’s recipe is it’s significantly less time consuming than our recent recipes, so you can make these up super fast (they’ll be gone super fast too we assure you).
Onwards to cookies!
