Yummy Teething Biscuits!

Yes, this is it! A recipe for teething biscuits! A great way for babies to take their mind off of those aches when their teeth are beginning to come in.

Now why would I want to make teething biscuits? Well Mallory, Eric and the newest addition, Sloane!, came to visit! Fabulous company, fun times, and Sloane is too cute for words! She's adorable! But Miss Sloane had it rough one night. Poor thing. It was possible she may have began teething, so we starting searching for home remedies and Eric found a recipe for Teething Biscuits: Oats & 'Naner Drops. Of course I had to make these for Sloane! Anything to make her feel better.
Teething Biscuits

  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1 cup ground oats (grind oats into a flour-like consistency)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 t nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp oil
  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the oats, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and baking powder.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the bananas, vanilla extract, and oil.
  3. Add the banana mixture (wet) to the oat mixture (dry).
  4. Drop by the spoonful onto a greased baking sheet.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-15 min.
  6. Let cool on a cooling rack. 
These were like banana bread bites! This recipe was actually adapted from a vegan cookbook. And guess what? Sloane loved these! They fit perfectly into this great new invention: The Munchkin Fresh Food Feeder. It looks like a pacifier, but a mesh-like bag is attached to it, where you can put food in! It's really neat because you don't have to worry about the baby's safety (i.e. choking) while he/she is biting down or sucking on it.

I'm not sure who liked these more though... Eric or Sloane! Ha!
