Today I decided to try an experiment that could help with 3 current problems I’m dealing with:
1. Lennon is a big ol’ cranky mess from teething.
2. Lennon still has little interest in table food and wants to live off breast milk and Graham crackers.
3. I have a TON of baby oatmeal. I stocked up when Lennon was almost old enough to eat solids because we went through so much with Lucille, I assumed we would with Lennon too .. wrong!
So I decided to make some teething biscuits. I found this awesome recipe, but as I didn’t have pear baby food I thought I’d change it up a bit. What a success!! Lennon loves them, so of course Lucille had to try them too. She was also a fan. I get so happy when I’m able to try something new and see my kids enjoy it! Especially when it’s something easy I can do repeatedly, which this certainly us. Here’s how:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and put parchment paper on a baking sheet.
In a mixing bowl combine:
- 1 cup of flour
- 1 cup of baby oatmeal
- 1 cup of applesauce
- 1/4 tsp of ground cinnamon
Form mixture into long biscuits with wet hands. Should make a dozen to,so, I think I made 11.
Bake for 30 minutes.
That’s it. So easy! I’m thinking I’ll try it with all sorts of different flavors to get Lennon eating veggies and such!
