Teething Biscuits (Can Be made Gluten Free)


No teeth have made their appearance but my littlest is drooling by the bucket and chewing anything she can get her hands on.  She turns up her nose, however, to the teething toys in favor of sister's books.  Today she got a hold of Ivy's precious Elmo bath book, gasp! Needless to say I needed to find something else for this dear little one to gnaw upon.

I found the basic recipe on cooks.com and it worked very well with my gluten free flour mix.  My mix  had xanthan gum added in it, if your flour does not be sure to add at least a tbs of some sort of binding agent (xanthan gum, guar gum, or gelatin) to your recipe.

If you don't have a store bought mix on hand my go-to-flour mix is 2 parts rice flour to 1 part soy flour and 1/3 part  corn starch with added binding agent.

 Teething Biscuits
1 1/2 c. flour (white, whole wheat or gluten free flour mix)
1/4 c. oil (or butter)
1/2 c. infant cereal
1/2 c. water

Sift the flour and cereal together.  Combine the remaining ingredients, adjust the amount of water so your dough has a pie crust consistency.  Roll the dough out and cut into crackers.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes until crispy.

Gluten free mixes don't always work the best in recipes like this, but the rice cereal really helped bind things together.

  10. Thanks for visiting my blog. I like your recipe for teething biscuits. These seem a lot better than the ones you get at the store. My daughter almost choked on those as they are really too hard so she never got them again. These seem like a healthier alternative
