don't call them teething biscuits.

17 August 2011

My baby loves these teething biscuits. But, here's the secret: so do my five and seven year olds. We call them 'cookies' in our house.

2 cups of oatmeal, uncooked
3 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons oil of your choice

In a food processor or blender, grind 1 cup of the oats into a fine flour. Place into a mixing bowl with the other ingredients and mix until well combined. Roll into small balls and flatten slightly.* Place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Bake at 200 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes. Turn the oven off and let dry until hard. They keep best in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

*Depending on the brand of oats, I find I need a few more sometimes. If the dough is too sticky, add just a few more whole oats.

That looks like an oatmeal cookie. Much yummier than a teething biscuit. :)
