Homemade Biter Biscuits - Baby!


Prep Time

20 minutes

Prep Notes

be sure to flatten and make these thin, otherwise too thick and thus hard for the baby to bite on and chew. The younger the baby the thinner the biscuit.

Note - Child should be 9- 12 months

Cooking Time

45 min

Yields

20 biscuits

Ingredients

2/3 cup milk or water

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted or cooled

1 tablespoon of brown sugar

1 cup wheat germ

1 cup whole wheat flour

Directions

  1. Beat together milk or water, unsalted butter, and sugar. 
  2. Stir in wheat germ and flour, and knead for 8 - 10 minutes until dough is smooth and satiny. Add more water or more flour if necessary. (I kneaded more like 5 but softer biscuits kneed longer). 
  3. Make small balls of dough and roll them into sticks that are about 1/2 inch thick and 4 inches long. 
  4. Roll out on floured surface to a 1/2 inch thickness.
  5. Bake on a greased cookie sheet at 350 F for 45 minutes or until the biscuits are hard and browned. 

Notes

Wait until your baby can comfortably eat solid pureed foods before offering a teething biscuit. Always supervise your child while baby eats to ensure no choking.
