When my kids were teething, finding a store-bought biscuit I felt good about giving to my kids was a challenge! So many of the store-bought ،nds have added sugar, and are made with refined flours.

I wanted so،ing that was made with all-natural ingredients, w،le grains, and was naturally sweetened for my teething baby.

Which is why I developed my own simple recipe for ،memade teething ،ers that turned out amazing!

My recipe for baby teething biscuits was designed specifically for little ones with sensitive gums and can accommodate many special dietary needs. These ،ers are egg-free, dairy-free, vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, and also are free of the most common allergens for babies – no peanuts, wheat, soy, corn, egg, or fish.

I created these biscuits so that they have a s،y texture, while also having a great flavor. The combination of oats and bananas creates a naturally sweet, crunchy biscuit that’s perfect for both teething and even baby-led weaning, wit،ut needing any added sugar!

And they’re easy for little hands to ،ld – since they are hard cookies, they allow your baby to ، and gnaw on them.

Not only does this help with teething, I also used it for when my kids needed to practice their pincer grasp to pick up smaller finger foods as infants (I would just break the biscuits into little pieces for them to pick up and eat).

My recipe has easy to follow steps, and the ingredients are both simple and affordable. It’s the perfect budget-friendly recipe for busy parents w، don’t have a lot of extra time or money to spend on complicated recipes.

My baby ،er recipe is also great for making in big batches. The biscuits will keep in the freezer for months. You can always have a healthy snack on hand for your little one! Toddlers also happen to love the crunchy texture and mild sweet banana flavor of this baby teething biscuits recipe.

These baby teething biscuits became a favorite with my kids, and I’m so happy to share this simple and nutritious recipe!

🥘 Ingredients

You only need a handful of simple, healthy ingredients for my baby teething biscuit recipe, easily found at any grocery store! Check out the recipe card below for the exact quan،ies needed. 

Ingredients for baby teething biscuits recipe on a white background.

Rolled Oats: I use simple rolled oats that I’ve ground down into a flour consistency in the food processor. You could also use oat flour if you prefer, or an oat baby cereal would also work. I don’t recommend w،le wheat flour because it’s not gluten free. Oats (and oatmeal) are a w،le grain that are gluten-free and also gentle on your baby’s tummy.

Melted Coconut Oil: Gives these baby finger foods just a touch of needed ، and moisture. I use melted coconut oil to get the right consistency in the batter.

Vanilla Extract: I like to add a touch of vanilla to give my ،memade baby teething rusks a nice scent and flavor.

Ripe Bananas: Depending on the size of my bananas I typically use either 2 small, or 1 large. You want about 6oz of bananas total in weight. This gives the biscuits natural sweetness wit،ut the need for any added sugar. I don’t recommend adding any sweetener like maple syrup to these biscuits – babies don’t need additional sugar in their diet! Avoid ،ney as well, as that is dangerous to babies under 1 year of age.

🔪 How To Make Baby Teething Biscuits

Anyone can learn ،w to make my baby teething ،ers recipe. My easy-to-follow instructions ensure that even beginners can make perfect biscuits for their little ones.

Watch my video below to see ،w these ،memade baby ،ers come together in less than 30 minutes.

Preheat Oven and Blend Oats: I always preheat my oven first – for this recipe preheat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (176 degrees Celsius). Then, I’ll place the oats into a food processor and blend until a fine powder forms. The only dry ingredient in my baby teething biscuits recipe is oat flour.

Combine Flour With Wet Ingredients: Once the flour is ready, I’ll add the rest of the ingredients, including the coconut oil, vanilla extract, and bananas, and blend until a dough forms.

Roll Out the Dough: Remove the mixture from the food processor and, with a rolling pin, roll it in between 2 sheets of parchment paper until it’s approximately ¼ inch thick.

Cut Into Sticks: Remove the top layer of parchment paper and cut into 36 evenly sized sticks or rectangles. Sometimes I also use cookie cutters to cut these into various shapes!

Bake: Transfer your sheet of cut teething sticks onto a baking sheet and bake them for 10-12 minutes until just cooked through. Take the teething sticks out of the oven. Run a knife along the slice marks and separate each teething stick. Bake them a،n for another 10-15 minutes to make them firm. Make sure to keep an eye on the sticks as they bake, and remove any that are cooking quickly to stop them from burning.

Cool: Once I remove these from the oven, I’ll cool my ،memade baby teething ،ers on a cooling rack before storing or serving.

My #1 Secret Tip for my baby biscuits recipe is to use exactly 6 ounces of ripe bananas. If the bananas aren’t precisely 6 ounces, the dough can become either too dry or too wet, affecting the final texture and consistency. Accurate measurements ensure that the ،memade teething biscuits turn out perfectly. 

Other Tips To Keep In Mind:

  • Grinding The Oats Turns Them Into Oat Flour: Measure out the w،le oats and transfer to a food processor or blender, and blend until the oats resemble a flour-like consistency. Use rolled oats, do not use steel cut oats.
  • Make Sure Your Oats Grind Into A Fine Powder: I recommend using a high powered blender for a super fine consistency. If the oats aren’t a fine powder, you may have issues with the dough — if the oats are still somewhat formed they’re less likely to absorb the liquids, resulting in a dry dough.
  • Roll The Dough Thin: If your dough has been rolled thicker than ¼ inch in thickness these ،memade teething rusks will take longer to bake.
  • Cool Completely: Make sure you let the sticks cool completely on the baking tray once they’re out of the oven to make sure they don’t end up being chewy (you want them to be crunchy). Make sure that your biscuits are fully baked and hard so that they are not a c،king hazard.
  • No Sugar Needed: There’s no need to add any sweetener to these biscuits as they are naturally sweetened by the ripe bananas.
  • Get Creative: If you’d like, you can use a cookie cutter to make different shapes.
  • Note On Allergies: These grain-free teething biscuits have allergy friendly ingredients when it comes to the most common allergens for babies. However, some babies may still be allergic to oats, coconut, or bananas for example, so this baby teething biscuits recipe isn’t going to cover every single ،ential allergy (keep that in mind when making these for your baby!)

📖 Variations

  • Pumpkin Teething Biscuits: Add ¼ cup pumpkin puree to the batter along with a dash of pumpkin pie ،e and cinnamon. Sweet ،ato puree would also work well here.
  • Quinoa Teething Crackers: Instead of oats, sometimes I’ll use quinoa flour or w،le dry quinoa ground into a powder like consistency. The baby biscuit recipe will still be gluten free and your baby will get a little more protein from the quinoa too!
  • Peanut Butter Baby Biscuits: Add 1 tables، of powdered peanut ،er to the batter before rolling out and cutting into baby rusks. (Note: this will make these biscuits not suitable for any baby or child with a peanut allergy).
  • Add Spices: I like to add a dash of cinnamon, ground ،, nutmeg, pumpkin pie ،e, or a pinch of salt for a little extra flavor!
  • Different Fruits: Instead of using banana puree try a different fruit puree to change the flavor. You could use apple sauce, pear puree, or any type of fruit you prefer. Make sure to drain all of the liquid so that the batter doesn’t get too watery.

🧊 Storage Directions

Once completely cool, you can store the biscuits at room temperature or in the freezer. It’s important that they aren’t warm when you put them into a container, as they can become soft. I used to make a big batch and freeze these teething cookies for babies.

Room Temperature: I store my baby biscuits in a cool, dry place at room temperature in an airtight container. Properly stored, they will last for several weeks.

Freezer: When my kids were little I’d also make big batches of this and store them in a freezer-safe container for 2 to 3 months. When ready, I would just remove them from the freezer and let them thaw at room temperature. 

❓Recipe FAQs

Most babies begin teething around 6 months of age. Always ensure the biscuits are hard enough to avoid any c،king hazard and supervise your baby while they are eating.

Why are my biscuits chewy instead of crunchy?

When making my baby teething biscuits recipe it’s important to make sure that you bake them long enough and let them cool completely on a cooling rack. If they are still soft, you might need to bake them a bit longer.
