    I am trying to make a feed bar for my hamster! The food mix I have is almost a powder state, however it is more like cream of wheat or grits. I am looking to bake this into a bar I can store in a cupboard. The mix contains oats, beans, corn, soy, sugar and fiber. I just need to turn it into a bar. Someone please point me in the right direction. Thank you in advance.

    I would look into making granola bars and adapt the recipe for your use. Of course, check with a vet for proper nourishment, etc.

    I thought about that, just do not know how to make everything stick together.

    Egg maybe?  I don't know what to do to make it stick together.

    I plugged "homemade hamster feed bar recipe" into google and had a couple of pages of hits.

    Lots of You Tube vids....
