We all know that most of the teething biscuits in the markets are not exactly what they are supposed to be considering the restrictions that babies have under one year. Making the right biscuits for our babies at home isn’t an easy thing. Still these spelt teething biscuits are sooo nice that even an adult can enjoy them next to their coffee or tea. Slightly sweet but very nice flavoured.
Teething biscuits or sugar free coffee biscuits, you choose
I’ve been inspired by Chiappa‘s teething biscuits but I’ve made some changes to the recipe. I’ve used whole-spelt flour, flavours such as cinnamon, clove, orange zest, vanilla, and my choice for the sweetner was made from pureed banana and plum marmelade ( made just from the plums; no added sugar). They came out so nice, mild sweet, that I’ve reserved a few for myself, since they are great next to coffee or tea.
The biscuits are supposed to be easy to grab and hold by the little one. This is how this batch looked like, but I think animals or other ways shaped cookies cutters could be even better.
Perfect Spelt Teething Biscuits
- 1 free-range egg
- 1 tbsp oil or grass-fed butter
- 4 tbsp fruit puree
- 2 cups whole-spelt flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- a pinch of ground clove
- vanilla bean seeds
- orange zest
Put the dry ingredients together in a bowl
Mix the wet ingredients in another bowl and add them to the other bowl
Shape the batter as you desire (biscuits shape) and cook at 356 F degrees for 30-40 mins
There are many variations of the fruit puree (which is made from blended steamed fruits) that can be used, either banana and plum marmelade as I did, or steamed apple and plum and so on.
