Apple Flax Teething Biscuit Recipe

Teething… a fun time for all involved.

My daughter has six of her front teeth in already and is just starting to cut her ‘vampire’ teeth.  She’s usually not been too cranky during the teething process, but she does act off.  More whiny… wanting more of mommy…

So, I thought she might enjoy some teething biscuits to help the process along a little.

I added flax to the teething biscuit recipe and next time I think I will use whole wheat flour to increase the fiber in these biscuits.  Flax is safe to give baby around 8-10 months of age or a little older.  I know most babies teeth way before this.  Mine have always been late teethers.  My third child didn’t cut her first tooth until well after 18 months.

These biscuits came out nice and hard (but won’t break your teeth) on the outside and just a little less hard on the inside.  Great for baby to gum all over.

She seems to like the biscuits.  (I think they’re pretty tasty too!)

Apple Flax Teething Biscuits

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup apple juice
  • 4 tbsp butter – unsalted and melted
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seed

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Mix juice, melted butter, and brown sugar in a medium mixing bowl.
  3. Slowly add the flax seed and flour to make a dough.
  4. Knead for 10 minutes or until the dough gets smooth. (I had to add more flour throughout to make the dough not as sticky.)
  5. Roll into 24 balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  6. Press each ball into a flat, long biscuit or cookie shape with your fingers.
  7. Bake for 35-45 minutes and the biscuits are hard and golden brown.
  8. Allow them to cool completely.

This is a great recipe! I always tried to make my own baby food but would have never even thought that I could have made their teething biscuits homemade.

This is such a great idea! And I love that you added the flax seed, it has great health benefits. Everyone should make these themselves.

I make a very similar dish! Only insetad of putting in one baking pan, I baked a whole bunch of individual pies in little circle glass containers that have lids, one biscuit worth per container. Then we could freeze them and my husband could have a yummy healthy lunch! They’re a big hit.

Made these for my 11 monthbold today. So good! I was worried she’d be able to bite through them but once I let them sit straight from the oven they hardened up. The only thing I did differently was use a heart shaped cookie cutter. She loves them!

How long can I keep these for? Can I freeze them as well?

    I’m not really sure how long you could keep them. Ours were gone quickly. But I’m sure you could freeze them to keep them longer.
