Healthy teething biscuits

As a mother, I simply cannot understand how come that internet is full of teething biscuits that contain sugar, salt and other ingredients forbidden for small babies. On the other side, there are mothers not giving anything than vegetable purees to the kids until 2-3 years. Well, let's be reasonable and look at baby food recipes from the health perspective without exaggerating. 
Up until the first anniversary of your baby there are a lot of alternatives to replace a teaspoon of sugar or a pinch of salt. Fruits contains fructose, they are healthy and add a beautiful sweet taste to your baby food. Spices can replace salt and add taste to the food. Do not get yourself trapped in the idea that if you do not like a food your baby won't like it either. It's simple: no salt, no sugar for small babies.
Then, we are turning the world to give healthy food to our babies. But what about us? This recipe for biscuits is perfect for your child as soon as s/he has some teeth and for you as well. I ate these biscuits together with my little son and daughter and we have all enjoyed them.

Healthy biscuits for babies and perfectly good and tasty for you too. Let's see ...

  • 2 cups of oats
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  1. Put the oats in a mixer and powder them. Add banana, coconut oil (at room temperature is fine) and the cinnamon. Mix until well combined. You should have a kind of dough.
  2. Stretch the dough with a rolling pin and cut it using biscuits cutters.
  3. Bake them in the oven 15-20 minutes at 180ÂșC on a tray layered with a silicon/paper sheet or until they start to brown just a bit. I baked mines not in the oven but I used a snack-grill with biscuits trays. It is very practical and 8 of them were ready in 6 minutes. However, conventional oven will do a great job as well.
