Baby Food

I'm always looking for new recipes to try and I came across http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com/.
That's just what it is, a great site that offers recipes for wholesome baby food.

My 9 month old loves Baby Mum Mum crackers and since I have always been a fan of homemade, the teething biscuit recipes interested me most. Most of the biscuit recipes call for ingredients that I typically have in my kitchen so I was excited to be able to try one immediately. There are even recipes that do not contain egg or wheat.

I decided to take the simple route and choose the very easy Eggless Baby Cereal Cookies.
(Maggie from wholesomebabyfood.com has given me permission to share this quick recipe)

All I needed was:

1 cup of flour
1 cup of baby cereal and
1 cup of juice

I mixed them in a bowl, rolled out the dough and cut the dough out into little shapes. The cookies were then baked for 20-30 minutes at 350 F. (It was closer to 30 minutes in my oven, but as they always say.....oven temperatures vary)

The dough was very sticky and soft as mentioned at the end of the recipe so I took their advice and added a little more flour. I also baked the biscuits on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper so the bicuits were easily removed after baking.

My baby enjoyed a few homebaked biscuits for the first time and I look forward to trying more of the recipes soon!

Please comment and let us know if you have tried any of the recipes at http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com/ or if you have other tips and recipes for feeding baby.
