Soaked Banana Pumpkin Baby Biscuits (gluten free)


teething biscuits

a ‘biscuit’ with eggs

My little guy still doesn’t have teeth (at 11 months), but he loves to feed himself.  I needed something small that he could hold, soft enough for his gums, gluten free, preferably organic and soaked grain for optimal nutrition.  So I set to work on creating something.   My older kids even liked these and declared them ‘banana cookies’ and begged for more.  I’m not sure cookie is the right term as this recipe is only very lightly sweetened.   Perfect for a snack, or as a side to any meal.

    Is there a substitute I can use for the brown rice and amaranth? We are not gluten-free, if that makes a difference.

      Nicole, you could try other flours you have on hand, but I really don’t know. Gluten flours like wheat and rye behave differently from gluten-free flours. Let me know if you try anything else and if you have success.
