Homemade Teething Biscuits

Vegan (Wheat Free) Teething Biscuits

1 cup fruit juice
1 cup flour (any type)
1 cup rice baby cereal
3 TB oil (any type)

Put all ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir together until well combined. Roll out on a floured board and cut into shapes. Bake for approximately 20-30 minutes at 350 F (175 C). These biscuits can be frozen for storage and your baby might even enjoy sucking on a partially defrosted one. The cooling on the gums will feel wonderful.

I plan on making these this weekend! I'm so excited. I've been searching and searching for a teething biscuit or cookie that meets the dietary needs of Joaquin. I've been to our local co-op, Whole Foods, our regular grocery store and I haven't been able to find anything that fits. This recipe is perfect. I plan on using a gluten free flour, not sure which one yet. I'll let you know how they turn out and whether or not the little man likes it. He's got four molars coming in at the same time. It's time to find something other than his fingers to chew on!

Great idea. Teething is tough here, too. If you give the green light on taste, we'll try these, too.

Good idea! Matthew has yet to get his back molars. He doesn't care for the Gerber teething biscuits though. Let me know how these go and we might just try the recipe too! :-)

What consistency are these supposed to be when they are done? I tried this with a gluten free flour mix (2 parts rice flour, 1 part garbanzo flour, 1 part tapioca starch), and they came out chewy.
