Homemade Teething Biscuits

I have been trying to limit the amount of refined sugar and processed foods that my kids get, so homemade things are often the way to go. I recently came across a recipe for teething biscuits that have no refined sugar (the sweetness comes from some maple syrup and apple puree) but are very tasty - just make sure to save some for your baby!

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons unsweetened apple puree/applesauce

  • Preheat oven to 150C/300F.
  • Place all ingredients into a medium bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until dough just begins to hold together.
  • Dust counter with flour, then knead dough lightly until smooth, about 3 minutes.
  • Roll out until 1 cm/ 1/3 inch thick.
  • Cut out using medium biscuit cutter, and use a clean soda-bottle cap or a knife to cut out a small hole in the middle of each biscuit (so they look like doughnuts, and are easy to hold).
  • Transfer to a greased baking tray, and bake for 35 minutes until barely brown.
  • Cool completely on tray.
  • Either eat as they are, or leave out overnight to harden slightly more.
  • Store for 2 weeks in an airtight container.

Oooh, these are going to come in handy once we have a baby in the house! I want to make baby food from the veggies and fruit we eat all the time, and I have been looking into other baby food products to make so I control what goes into them! Thanks for posting the recipe!
