These little soft nibbles are ideal for training, playing, and having fun.
½ pound of beef
½ pound beef liver
2 ¼ cups rolled oats
1 ¾ cups wholegrain spelt flour
3 or 4 free-range eggs
Wash the beef and the liver, pat dry with a kitchen towel, and cut into small pieces. Use a food processor to mince the meat. Add the eggs, oats, and wholegrain spelt flour and process the mixture on the highest setting for 3 minutes. Cover a deep baking tray with greaseproof paper and smear the paper with butter. Pour the mixture into the tray to the depth of a finger’s width. A little parsley sprinkled on at this stage will add to the flavour. Bake in a pre-heated 350° F/180° C oven for 20 to 30 minutes. Leave to cool and then carefully ease out of the baking tray. When completely cool, cut into little squares of about 1/2 inch. Store in the refrigerator.
