Oat Banana Cinnamon Teething Cookies – GF & vegan +6M

Teething cookies!! Definitely a recipe that will come useful when your little one will start drooling like a pro and chewing every single thing he can grab to relive the constant discomfort due to red gums and growing teeth.

With my two kids I learned that teething cookies are a wonderful way to distract your baby from the minor teething discomfort. They keep him busy chewing and holding the cookie. Still, teething cookiesΒ do not solve the pain of teething, they are a temporary distraction. If your little one’s discomfort is high, you might want to consult your pediatrician for some homeopathic medications or mild pain relief.

I’ve been trying many and many teething cookies recipes since I started BuonaPappa and the qualities I’ve been looking in the “perfect” teething cookie are:

  1. HARDNESS: the cookie needs to be hard enough to be chewed for a loooong time without breaking
  2. HOW IT BREAKS: a good cookie either melts in the baby’s mouth or breaks in pieces big enough not to represent a chocking hazard
  3. TEXTURE: if on the gooey side, it’s easier to chew with the gums.
  4. FLAVOR: at the end, even a teething cookie, it’s a food. It should taste good! It’s not fun without flavor πŸ™‚

The Oat Banana Cinnamon teething cookies have all the above qualities πŸ™‚ Not only, they are vegan = no eggs, no dairy. So, perfect for little ones starting from 6 months of age. They are also without additional sugars, the sweet flavor comes from the banana and the coconut oil.

For this reason I really suggest to use ripe bananas, with nice brown spots on the skin, they are sweeter!! To give some extra flavor I added cinnamon. This lovely spice tastes and smells so good and also has lovely healthy properties: it’sΒ anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. Definitely enough reasons to start adding a pinch of cinnamon here and there in your baby food πŸ™‚

The recipe is very easy. You only need a food processor and an oven.

Start preheating the oven to 35oF/180C.Β In a food processor add the banana, the coconut oil and water. Blend into a creamy mix.

Add the oat flour and cinnamon and blend to obtain a soft dough.

If you don’t have oat flour at home you can simply make it with some old fashioned/rolled oats. Place the oats in a blender and mix up until obtaining a flour consistency, 2 minutes should be enough. Yes, it’s that simple!!

Roll the dough into a 1/4-inch thick sheet and cut any shape that can be easily handled by your baby: sticks, circles are the easiest.

For the video I made the donut shape ones simply using a regular cup for the big circle and the medicine measure cup for the little circle πŸ™‚ I also made some sticks simply cutting the dough in rectangles and smoothing them with my fingers.

Place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with some parchment paper and bake for 15–20 minutes, until pale golden. Cool completely and store extras in an airtight container.Β Enjoy!!!
