Hints & Tips

  • You may prefer to rather roll balls and press them flat with a fork before baking.
  • Remember these are treats, and not recommended as a nutritional supplement or food substitute.
  • If you want to increase the nutritional value, visit a health store or pharmacy and add in a few spoons of brewers yeast, bone meal and liver powder.
