Homemade Teething Biscuits

My little guy cut his first two teeth just over a week ago.  Some babies are champs with teething, but mine, not so much.  Miles was constantly gnawing on his hands {or anything he could get is mouth on, including me}, he was cranky, refused to nap, got sick, and just wasn’t his sweet, happy self until those suckers popped through.

I meant to buy some teething biscuits at the store but kept spacing it, so I just made some myself!  With a quick google I landed on Bridget’s blog My So-Called {Mommy} Life who had a simple recipe for teething biscuits.

The great thing about making these yourself is you know exactly what goes in them and what your baby is consuming.  And these biscuits are made of rice cereal, wheat flour, a banana, coconut oil, water and cinnamon.  That’s it!

  Baby likes!!  I’ve got these on hand for the next round of teething!

  1. 1 cup infant rice cereal
  2. 1 cup whole wheat flour
  3. 2 tbsp coconut oil
  4. 1 mashed banana
  5. 2 tsp cinnamon
  6. 4-8 tbsp water
  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Mix everything together in a medium sized bowl, starting with 4 tbsp of water and adding more if necessary. Mix well until a dough forms (I used my hands). Roll out on a floured surface until about 1/4"-1/2" thick. Cut out shapes using cookie cutter or cut into squares. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment and bake for 15 minutes.
  3. Let cool completely. Store in air-tight container. These can also be stored in the freezer.
  1. **supervise child closely while eating these, they should get soggy and goopy but I am not guaranteeing your child won't bite of big chunks.

  1. This is perfect!!! I actually did a post on how I was having trouble finding teething biscuits that weren’t made in China. You mean, I can make it at home? Awesome. Thanks for the great recipe! http://chocolateandcarrots.com/crackersandcarrots/2013/01/teething

  2. What a little Heart-Breaker!!!! He is absolutely Adorable!!!! Thank-You for sharing.

  3. Yay! I just had my second baby 6 weeks ago, and have been on the hunt already for healthy baby food recipes. Love this!

  4. He could not be ANY cuter!! I hope life is going well for you cute thing!! xoxoxo

  5. This is the cutest thing EVER! I almost want to have another baby just so I can make these. sniff sniff.

  6. Can I use home made brown rice cereal instead of the processed store junk?

  7. What a great recipe! thank you!! Should they be golden and hard like an actual biscuit when done?

    • They will be hard and they will be darker in color than an actual biscuit (like a pillsbury biscuit?). The color in the picture is pretty accurate!

  8. Also, how long can they be kept in an airtight container? And from your experience once they nibble on a certain piece should that piece be thrown out right after due to bacteria? Wasn’t sure about this…

  9. Just a quick note to say thanks for the post – made these for my 8 month old (with my 3 yr old) yestereday (so got an activity out of it as well) – went over well with both of them. Actually, my 3 yr old is eating an awful lot of them – but I figure it doesn’t really do any harm. Thanks for this – we’ll make them again :)

  10. Oh these look brilliant!

    I would love for you to link up at the Friday Baby Shower – the link party for all things pregnancy and new baby. We have a special focus on teething this week. Alice @ Mums Make Lists

  11. I know there’s a lot of mixed emotions when it comes to giving babies wheat, and my baby is only 6 months old so I wanted to wait just a little longer. Do you think these would turn out if I just replace the flour with more of the baby cereal?

    • Ooh I have no idea, but you could just use regular flour!!

        Thanks for the recipe; the cookies look great, and so does the baby! BTW, just want to point out that regular flour is wheat. Whole wheat flour is what a lot of people mean when they say “wheat.”

  12. I want to save this recipe for when my daughter starts teething, but I’m allergic to coconuts and I’m really not sure I want to give them to her. Is there a different type of oil I could use to make these?
    (Your little man is adorable, btw!)

  13. I cannot wait to try these! Thank you so much for pinning! I have been looking for something like this! visiting from cookandcraftmecrazy. I love your blog! Thanks again! xo-Brooklyn

  14. Sunflower oil and avocado oil would be great substitutes! And you can’t go wrong with classic Extra Virgin olive oil

  15. Freezing them would be a good idea to make them harder and cold, we all know they love to chew on cold things.

    Can i substitute the rice cereal for something else? maybe oat flour?

  17. Hi, I was wondering if you’d mind if I shared this recipe on my blog as well! It’s great, came to me highly recommended. I have a 4 month old who is just starting to teethe, so these will come in handy very soon I think!

  18. Hello there!
    I love this idea and I actually tried to make them, but my dough turned out to be really sticky. Do you have any idea what I did wrong? I followed the recipe just like explained, the only thing I changed was the oil. I used Virgin OLive Oil since I didn’t have Coconut Oil. Thanks, looking forward to your reply!

  19. I found the dough to be quite sticky so I pipped mine into rings. They are in the oven and smell great! Finally, a recipe where it’s OKAY to let them be hard as rocks! Thanks for sharing!

  20. I keep getting air pockets in my biscuits. Are they safe to give to baby or should I keep trying to make them. I am new at baking.

  21. At what age can I start giving these to my baby? He is almost 6 months old and teething like crazy!

    Just bought some teething biscuits for LO at the natural foods store today. He liked it, so I’m looking for a homemade recipe to try. Yours looks simple enough, but I’m staying clear away from rice cereal. As rice can have high amounts of arsenic in it (depends on where it is grown, but the EPA has found brown rice products to have up to 3 times the level of arsenic that is considered safe for drinking water. Just trying to spread the word…

    I would like to try this recipe with oatmeal cereal, apple sauce, and a wee bit of maple syrup.
