Homemade Baby Biscuits

If you have a baby that's anything like mine, then they looove to eat! My little one has just mastered feeding herself little bits of food and loves to practice all the time (with anything she finds on the floor). I find I always need to have snacks on hand, but just cannot bring myself to buy the baby snacks at the store. I figured it could't be too hard to make some myself! That way I know exactly what goes into it, and it's easier on the wallet!

Original recipe found at Family Feedbag


1/2 cup pureed prunes (or 1 128ml jar)
1 egg
2 Tablespoons coconut oil
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 375F. Combine the prunes, egg, and coconut oil in a small bowl and mix well. Combine the dry ingredients in a separate small bowl. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet until it forms a ball. Further knead the ball on a floured surface. Roll out on a floured surface to be about 
1/2 inch thick. Cut away the rough edges to form a rectangle. Cut into small rectangles, about 
1 inch by 3 inches. Dot with a fork in the centre, then place on a baking sheet. Gather remaining dough and repeat rolling and cutting until all the dough is used. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove and make sure they're very cool before serving to baby! 
I broke mine into little bite sized pieces and kept a close eye on her, as always should be done when feeding babes.
I hope your little one enjoys them as much as mine did! There was more than a bit of protest when I tried to take away the one I gave her.
