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.
- 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)
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.
7. Bake for 10 minutes.
*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!
