Nom nom nom

So we have some new chompers coming in at the house.  I have been surprised, for the most part the munchkin hasn't had TOO many pains with this latest round of teething...of course, the molars are still to come, but we will tackle that when it comes around!

 My sweet hubby sent me a pin the other day for teething biscuits.  I took one look at it, laughed, and said "ain't nobody got time for that!"  You see, as much as I love cooking and baking, I HATE rolling out dough and cutting cookies...blech.  But we have this HUGE amount of baby food that she really won't eat, so I decided, why not...and I'm glad I did! (You were right, dear)

Here is the original post I got the recipe from.  I made a few changes to attempt to make it "healthier" (although it is pretty healthy to start with!) and that is why I am writing a post about it (mainly so I remember what I did!).  Lish at Imprintalish did a great job on this so I want to give credit where credit is due!  Have fun!

Homemade Teething Biscuits

1 cup all purpose flour (I use unbleached)
1 cup baby cereal (for this recipe I used Gerber multigrain)
1 container stage 2 baby food (for this recipe I used Gerber apple banana strawberry) or 1/3 c mashed bananas, applesauce, or any puréed fruit or veggie.  I am going to try a sweet potato one next! 
2 Tbsp. coconut oil
3 Tbsp. water

 Preheat oven to 425°.  Mix it all up and knead slightly to get it mixed really well.  Roll it out to about 1/2" thickness and cut into your favorite shapes.  Bake for 10 minutes or until slightly browned.  Cool and let the munchkins enjoy!

Note: This "cookie" has been approved by my crazy, curly headed 3 year old...and of COURSE the human disposal loves them.  I will update once the all-knowing 5 year old tries them!  YES, I did try them, and while they are bland and you can tell there is baby cereal in them, they actually aren't that bad!
