A recipe for gluten-free vegan biscuits for cat lovers.
It’s Easter and although that normally means chocolate Easter eggs a-plenty, how about this year you try some healthy indulgence?
These cat-shaped biscuits are gluten-free, sugar-free and egg-free and yet packed with energy and goodness – children and adults alike will love them. Even better, they have very few ingredients, so are simple to make with children over the Easter holidays!
The recipe and photos were provided by cat lover and supporter Cat (great name!).
