This week I made teething biscuits/cookies for my 9 month old baby boy. I had been wanting to for awhile and finally did since the baby cereal had been stacking up in the pantry. Seriously, he does not like that stuff but he’ll eat it when it’s made into a biscuit! I plan on trying different variations since we aren’t afraid of flavor and he pretty much eats everything that we eat. Last night he got his first taste of steak and you can guess that he was eager for more of that. Now I know why people says boys will eat you out of house and home.
I got the recipe for the biscuits I made from the Wholesome Baby Food website. There are a lot of recipes to choose from but today since I had a lot to do, decided to use a really simple one. Not that most of them aren’t simple I just didn’t have the time to measure out the spices and other things. Three ingredients that were on my counter top and easy to throw together, yes please! I went with this one:
Eggless Baby Cereal Cookies
1 cup flour ( I used all purpose)
1 cup baby cereal ( I used oatmeal baby cereal)
1 cup juice ( I used apple)
Mix ingredients well. Roll out and cut into shapes. Bake for 20-30 min @ 350 deg. F.
Freezes Well *Dough will be very sticky and seem “wrong” and may be hard to work with. This is as it should be so do not panic. You may wish to add more flour and/or cereal to achieve a more doughy consistency.*
I had fun making these and I had such adorable cookie cutters that hadn’t seen any love for awhile. Not that I don’t bake cookies often but I don’t usually make roll out cookies till around the cooler seasons. The summer time usually puts a damper on my baking due to not wanting to heat up the house so much. I look forward to making more of these. They are so easy to do and making them yourself is a lot more affordable than purchasing boxes of the pre-made ones.
