Ok, I had to share these with you guys...any of you that have children, they don't even have to be of the teething age...you have to make these! Why, you ask? Well, because I said so, obviously! Ha! No, really, they aren't the best tasting cookie, rather bland I think. But both my kids love them!! Gray calls them cookies and I totally don't mind him asking for these because they have either fruit or veggies in and NO SUGAR!! And since tomorrow is Valentine's Day, I got a little festive and we cut them into hearts!
Homemade Teething Biscuits
1 cup dry infant rice cereal
1 ripe medium mashed banana (1/3 cup-I have also substituted pureed carrots and sweet potato)
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons water
Makes about a dozen, depending on how big of shapes you use.
Preheat oven to 425ºF / 220ºC. In a bowl, mix together flour, cereal and cinnamon. Probably another reason why Gray loves them is because he helped make them.
Add in oil, banana and water. Mix until dough comes together to form a firm, non-sticky dough. Add water or flour (1 tablespoon at a time) if necessary.
On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out about 1/2 inch thick and cut into shapes or bars.
Bake on a greased cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes, or until slightly brown. Allow to cool completely and store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
