Sugar Free & Egg Free Recipes for Homemade Banana Teething Biscuits

If you are concerned about what goes into your baby's teething biscuits, you may want to make your own teething biscuits at home.

It gives you control on what goes into your baby's biscuits. And it gives you room to add more minerals, vitamins and fiber to the biscuits.

Most commercial teething biscuits you find today contain too much artificial flavoring, sugar and preservatives. And the good ones are expensive to consume, considering babies chew on teething biscuits a few times a day.

Bananas are great additives for homemade teething biscuits. Besides the fiber, vitamins and minerals bananas provide, they bring a nice, mild flavor and aroma to the biscuits which babies love.

Homemade banana teething biscuits can be stored in air-tight containers and refrigerated up to 1 week.

Note: Please seek advice from your pediatrician before starting your baby on teething biscuits. Teething biscuits should only be given until they can really chew them. No matter what type of teething biscuit you give your baby, homemade or commercial, make sure you keep baby closely on sight. There is no brand or recipe for teething biscuits that is guaranteed not to crumble or break off into pieces, and hence pose as a choking hazard.



Quick & Easy Banana Teething Biscuit

Servings: 12 bars
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Bake time: 15 minutes

Comments
I recommend using olive oil, canola or corn oil. If using olive oil, go for the extra-light version to reduce the taste of olive oil.

Ingredients
1 cup flour (all-purpose, whole wheat, barley, oat or a combination)
1 cup dry infant rice cereal (or oatmeal baby cereal or millet)
1 very ripe medium banana (1/3 cup), mashed
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons water

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 425ºF / 220ºC.
2. In a bowl, mix together flour and cereal.
3. Add in oil, banana and water. Mix until dough comes together to form a firm, non-sticky dough. Add water or flour (1 tablespoon at a time) if necessary.
4. On a lightly floured surface, pat the dough out about 1/2 inch thick and cut into bars. Smooth the edges of bars with fingers so they will not be sharp.
5. Bake on a greased cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes, or until slightly brown. Allow to cool completely and harden. Store extras in an airtight container.

    Easy Banana Bread
    Great recipe! I had two ripe bananas at home and wanted to use them right away, so I searched for ideas on the Internet. I found this recipe and decided to give it a try. Since I only had two bananas, I used only half of every ingredient (I added a dash of cinnamon) and baked it for half the time, too! It was so delicious!

    Lovely site I must say! when i found this recipe I thought "this is too good to be true", when I saw the comments I was like "yeah right, these are so not real". But I tried this recipe and trust me, I have NO regrets! awesome!!!! If you don't have baking soda, like I did, use two teaspoons of baking powder

    Thank you for posting this recipe. The best banana bread recipe ever. My kids loved it and my work colleague loved it too. I can just eat the whole lot myself. So easy to make as well.

    Love it! Cant believe how easy it was and what a beautiful cake it makes! Easy enough for my kids to do and so professional looking and tasting! Even our fussiest banana bread lover loved it!! VERY impressed!! A++++
    Daggy Shaggs, February 2011
    Excellent! This would have to be the most delicious and moist banana cake ever! I used wholemeal flour instead and it was still unbelievably moist. Also, I baked it for 50 mins instead, then left to cool and that helped make it more moist yet not undercooked. This has now become a firm family favourite, thankyou!.

    Buttery Banana Cookies
    I'm a 12 year old girl who just loves cooking and I was trying to find an easy banana cookie recipe.. And then I found this! I added some chocolate chips just to make it taste better, but it already tasted amazing. It was all gone in 1 day! Thanks a lot.
    Lisa, December 2011
    This might be my new favorite recipe! Plain, they are like mini, takealong banana bread bites! Delicious! Then I got creative, and dipped them in semisweet chocolate, then pressed a walnut on top and now they are an elegant cookie! I wowed my friends at our cookie exchange this year, but little did they know how simple it was! Thank you for the best kept secret I'll ever have in my kitchen!
