- I’ve been looking for one of these recipes for a while. And had no luck. Lots of gluten free ones floating around but nothing that was totally grain free. So, I invented my own. These have passed the baby test and the 5 year old test. And my test for that matter. They aren’t great to my adult tastebuds but definitely not bad either.
So, here goes.
Grain Free Teething Biscuit
- 2 Cups Coconut Flour
- 1/2 Cup Arrowroot Powder
- 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
- 1/2 Cup Almond Meal
- 2 Free Range Eggs
- 4 tablespoons Raw Coconut Syrup (Could be replaced with Stevia or honey if the baby is over a year old. Just add extra Yogurt in it’s place to reach desired consistency)
- 2+ cups Plain Yogurt (I used homemade so it was kinda runny with lots of whey)
- 1/3 Cup Extra Virgin Coconut Oil in liquid state (just has to be gently warmed if the kitchen is too cold)
- Smidge of Vanilla
Mix Coconut Flour, Arrowroot flour and Sea Salt in a bowl. Add 2 eggs and Yogurt along with the Coconut Syrup and Vanilla and Coconut Oil. Mix thoroughly. Dough should be stiff and moist, similar to playdough. Can add extra Yogurt as needed to reach desired consistency. Recruit help with this stage as needed.
In a small pyrex baking dish spray with Olive Oil or rub down with butter or coconut oil. Sprinkled 1/2 of the Almond Meal over the bottom of the pan. Dump dough into pan and gently pat down with fingertips until even. Sprinkle the rest of the Almond Meal over the top.
I baked mine at 250 degrees for 2 hours in an attempt to make it a dryer texture. Next time I will try it at a higher heat for a shorter period of time and see how we fare.
When you pull them out of the oven and they are still warm cut them with a butter knife. As they cool they will draw apart and be very easy to remove from pan. Once cooled I put them in a quart ziplock bag and store them in the freezer. Whenever the little man needs something to knaw on they are super easy to pull out! He LOVES them. 😀
If you try them let me know what you think! Just a note about the texture…Although the outside is slightly crunchy it quickly softens up with some gnawing. Coconut flour is extremely soft and can be easily chewed/broken up by little gummy mouths. Caleb hasn’t had any choking issues at all with these and we introduced them at 7 months old.
