Homemade Teething Biscuits

Caleb has been working on two teeth for the last week. The bottom one popped through, and the top one is working it’s way out. It’s meant less sleep (as in, I just tried to spell that “sleap”… oh my) and a liiiitle more fussiness.

Enter teething biscuits. Kind of hungry? Tooth hurting? Have a biscuit.

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a try – with a few tweaks, of course 😉

Preheat the oven to 425 F. Mix the flour, rice cereal, cinnamon, and ginger together in a medium bowl. Then, add the wet ingredients. Your dough will be more on the dry side – kind of like pie crust. You can always add a little more water if you need to.

Teething Biscuit Dough

Roll the dough to be 1/2″ thick and cut out your baby’s favorite letters, numbers, and shapes!

Bake in the oven for 11 minutes, let them cool, and store in a container! They are semi-soft biscuits.

The truth test:

Verified!!! Caleb loves them. He was trying to break into the container 😉

Homemade Teething Biscuits
Adapted from Imprintalish

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup baby rice cereal
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/3 cup applesauce (unsweetened)
  • 2 Tbsp canola oil
  • 4 Tbsp water

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line baking sheet with Silpat or parchment paper.
  2. Mix flour, rice cereal, cinnamon, and ginger in a medium bowl.
  3. Add applesauce, canola oil, and water to dry ingredients and mix well.
  4. Roll dough to be 1/2″ thick and cut out shapes for biscuits.
  5. Bake for 11 minutes.
  6. Cool and store in a container!

Extras:

  • The original recipe used 1/3 cup mashed banana, and in the comments, people mentioned using all sorts of mashed fruit/vegetables. I think you could test a few different options! The spices can be switched up as well.
  • My recipe made 32 small biscuits. These are a good size for my 9-month-old 🙂

PS: Check out the new “Food for Tot” section of the blog! This is the only recipe there since I just started it… But I will be posting more recipes as I try them!
