Pinteresting: Teething Biscuits

I honestly don't know how people buy multiple containers of baby cereal. We barely went through one with Henry and this time around with Wesley, he's maybe had it straight up two times and the rest were mixed with veggies or fruits. He's recently become Mr. Independent and will not be fed by a spoon, so everything we feed him has to be finger food. I still had half a container of rice cereal in the cupboard.

I've had this recipe for teething biscuits hanging out on one of my Pinterest boards for a while. I remembered that it's meant for using up baby cereal, so I gave it a whirl.

I really only made one change to the recipe from the one from my pin. It called for 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, but we don't have that around our house much, so I subbed butter, softened almost to runny. The reason I used 3 tablespoons instead of 2 was out of pure laziness. I had 3 left in the fridge, and I didn't feel like cutting it.

1 cup flour
1 cup dry infant rice cereal
1 ripe medium mashed banana
2 tsp cinnamon
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons water

Her recipe also said you could try 1/3 cup sweet potato or carrot. I have one jar of stage 3 sweet potato left, so I think I will try that next time.

Here's what the bowl looked like before I mixed.

I used a spoon to mix for a little while, but then I just dug in with my hands and mixed it all together. 

I rolled it out. It wasn't too sticky; I just had to use a little flour. 

I baked them as directed, 425* for 12 minutes, and they turned out perfectly.

This guy loved them and requested more. I stored them in a small container in the fridge just to make sure they lasted.

All-in-all, it was a great, easy recipe. If you have a baby who loved to gnaw on things, these are for you. No added sugar, using up baby cereal, and easy. 

This recipe now resides on the Tutorials and Ideas I've Used Pinterest board. If you want more on how I manage/organize Pinterest, check it out here.
