Default Vegan Bird Bread Recipes - or what to put in bird bread

As a baker the idea of bird bread intrigues me. I don't plan to introduce it until my budgie gains some weight but still on my mind.

Most of the recipes I have seen contain eggs. As a vegan, I don't use eggs in my baking because most eggs are from factory farms. And obviously I care about birds (and all animals). If I got a hold of some backyard chicken eggs from someone I knew or had my own chickens that would be a different story. So, on with the recipe questions...

I did see the bird bread recipe posted with is vegan. But a) it seems like a lot of work cooking up the veggies before hand and I'm lazy/short on time and b) it seems a little too dense/most with the banana/cooked veggies plus with the eggs omitted
https://www.talkbudgies.com/recipes-f...die-bread.html

So...
1) Would starches be safe for budgie? Corn starch, potato starch, tapioca starch... This is what I would use in baking for myself to replace the egg and make it less dense. Another option I don't use as often is use hydrated flax meal in place of an egg, which I assume is fine as budgies eat flaxseeds.
2)What ingredients can or should go into bird bread? Basically what are the bird bread "rules"? Basically any kind of healthy whole grain muffin type thing without added sugar? Or is there some greater goal with nutrient composition?

I'm way over thinking this, sorry! lol

Basically you can put anything in birdie bread that is a safe and healthy food for your budgies to eat.
Hydrated flax meal would definitely be a good option to use in place of egg.
Adding chopped veggies to the mix ensures your little one is getting lots of good nutrients and it is not necessary to cook the vegetables first, depending on the recipe you create.
