Teething Cookies

I’m thinking of reviving this cooking blog with new experiments in cooking for my 10 month old niece Olivia.

Our first experiment was a teething cookie, based on a recipe from Weelicious.  We didn’t change much from the recipe.

Teething Cookies 

  • 1 egg yolk, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons blackstrap molasses (we used regular, which I think is sweeter, and dosen’t have as many nutrients)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon rice/soy milk (we used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour plus 1 tablespoon for rolling
  • 1 tablespoon soy flour
  • 1 tablespoon wheat germ (we used toasted wheat germ, available at Bulk Barn)

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2.Mix all liquid ingredients in a medium sized bowl.

3. Combine the dry ingredients in a separate measuring cup and then add to wet ingredients. Blend until mixture forms a ball of dough.

4. Sprinkle whole-wheat flour on a clean surface and shape into a square, about 1/2 inch thick.

5. With a knife cut into 1 1/2 inch logs.

6. Place the logs on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

7. Bake for 10 minutes.

8. Cool on the sheet or tranfer to a wire rack.

9. Serve.

*I wouldn’t start giving these to a baby under the age of 8 months. You always need to be around when baby is eating something they could choke on.

These seemed to be a hit with Olivia, she had one at family dinner and another as part of breakfast the next day!
