Homemade Biter Biscuits

Store-bought biter biscuits are nasty. They melt into this paste that won't wash off, not even with soap and water, and they smell just... ew.

So I went online and found a few recipes for homemade biter biscuits, and I tweaked and re-tweaked till I cmae up with this.

Homemade Biter Biscuits

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oatmeal infant cereal (dry)
2 Tbs. vegetable oil
2/3 cup 100% juice

Preheat oven to 425.
Mix the first three ingredients together, then slowly add the juice - you may need more or less. Mix it up until it forms a thick ball, then press it out into a big flat pancake. Use you pizza cutter to slice it into baby sized "cookies."
Bake for 12-15 minutes, until brown and well set. Let them cool completely on the sheet (they will get harder as they cool) then store them in a resealable bag.

The Babe LOVES these, and I know exactly what's in them - no weird preservatives or colors or sugars. Plus, they just kind of dissolve, rather than leaving a nasty foul-smelling paste all over everything.
(We use Juicy Juice Watermelon for the juice, but I think anything would work.)

Oooooh! Thank you for this! I'll have to try this in a couple of months for the new one. :)

Definitely trying this out. Fat man is wanting to chomp on stuff like crazy & the only thing I've found that I'm semi-OK with are those rice rusks which he isn't crazy about.

Brilliant idea... I'm fairly sure that one of the top three ingredients in the store bought versions is concrete ;)

Oh my God! Thank you for this! It never even dawned on me to try to make some myself. I am so sick of cleaning up that pasty crap every day! I am definitely trying this.

I just made these, but haven't given them to my little guy yet. He's only 6 months so I'm not sure how he'll do, but I read that after 6 months they can have flour. Anyway, I used apple juice since he's had apples and did fine. I also cooked my first set for 12 minutes, but they were a little hard on the bottom, the second batch I cooked for 5 mintues and the bottoms were fine. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS AWESOME RECIPE!
