Teething biscuits/cookies for MPI kids
« on: January 08, 2009, 03:32:17 am »
Anyone got a recipe for home-made ones or know of a brand that is usually safe for these?

Here is one I used once.  I'm not sure if you can replace the flour with regular flour if you want though.  I don't know what kind of difference it would make.  I used apple concentrate juice, you can use whatever juice you like really.

 Ingredients
 
1  cup  amaranth flour
1/2  cup  arrowroot
3  Tbsp  oil
3/8  cup  pineapple juice concentrate, thawed
    brown sugar (optional)

 
 
Instructions 
Combine flour in a bowl. Mix the oil and juice together and stir into the flour.

Knead dough to absorb all the flour and form a very hard dough. Roll out dough to 3/8" thickness.

Cut into 1" by 3" bars and put on lightly oiled baking sheet.

Bake at 300 degrees F for 35-40 minutes, or until they begin to brown. TURN OFF THE OVEN AND LEAVE THEM IN FOR 1 MORE HOUR. Makes about 1 1/2 dozen teething biscuits.

These are not sweet. If desired, sprinkle some brown sugar on top before baking.

These are hard enough to grasp and hold, yet they dissolve when chewed. They don't crumble up when packaged.

Here's another:

Ingredients
1  cup  millet flour
1  cup  rice cereal
1  cup  juice

 
 
Instructions
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix flour, juice and water. Bake for 25 Minutes. Let cool overnight. Re-bake at very low heat for 45 minutes to further harden them.

 

 Comments

These are harder and more brittle than store bought teething biscuits. Pieces break off rather than slowly disintegrating. Corn free, Dairy free, Soy free, Wheat free, Gluten free ingredients may be used.
