My 11-month old, Mia, is in the process of cutting her second tooth. I used to buy Earth’s Best Organic Teething Biscuits, but figured I’d try to make some on my own. After browsing bunches of recipes, I came up with this one. They were cheap, easy & she loves them!
Recipe for Homemade Teething Cookies:
- 1 beaten egg
- 1 tbsp. canola oil
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 of a banana, mashed
- 1/4 c. milk
- 2 tbsp. uncooked old-fashioned oatmeal
- 2 tbsp. wheat germ
- 2 tbsp. light brown sugar
- 2 tbsp. baby cereal
- 1 c. whole wheat flour
- Butter, cinnamon & sugar (*optional for dusting)
Mix all wet ingredients, then mix all dry ingredients. Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Flour a large working surface, roll out dough to 1/2 inch thick. Cut with cookie cutters (I used mini for mini hands). Brush with melted butter and dust with cinnamon sugar. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes. Let harden and cool before serving.
