Even though Judah’s first two teeth have finally cut through after three very long weeks of teething, he still likes to chomp down on crackers and teething biscuits. Rather than buying box after box of biscuits, I can whip some up super quick with this ridiculously easy homemade teething biscuit recipe!
Click through to see how you can make your own homemade teething biscuits in under five minutes! (Your baby’s gums will thank you.)
Easy Peezy in a Breezy!
Teething woes? Whip up a teething solution in a jiffy with this crazy simple homemade teething biscuit recipe!
Step 1: Trim the crusts
Trimming the crusts makes it easier to roll up; you can throw the crusts in the toaster oven to crisp up to make croutons for salads, or, if your baby likes toast, a quick teething snack, too!
Step 2: Flatten
Using your fingers, flatten the bread as much as you can. Feelin’ fancy? Use a rolling pin. (I couldn’t find mine… not sure where it wandered off to, so fingers worked just fine!)
Step 3: Add the applesauce
Spread a super thin layer of applesauce on top of the flattened bread slice. That little bit on my butter knife? That’s all I used. Just enough to make the bread stick to itself.
Step 3a: Have a little snack and eat the rest of the applesauce cup!
Step 4: Add a pinch of cinnamon
This step is totally optional. Judah goes bananas for anything with cinnamon in it, so I lightly dusted the top of the bread slice.
Step 5: Roll it up
Starting at one edge, roll up the bread as tight as you can, pressing along the way. Having that applesauce layer will help it stick together.
All Rolled Up
Here’s what your finished roll should look like. If you’re feelin’ fancy, trim the ends to make them even – but chances are, baby really isn’t going to notice :)
Step 6: Zap it for 60-90 seconds
Depending on your microwave wattage, nuke it in the microwave for 60 to 90 seconds. We have a 700-watt microwave oven, so I needed the full 90 seconds.
The Finished Biscuit
Let your teething biscuit cool for a couple of minutes. It should be hard like a cracker or biscuit, and the cinnamon applesauce gives it a lovely taste for baby to munch on!
Judah was literally hand over fist trying to eat the whole thing when I gave it to him!
If you’ve got just 5 minutes to spare, try it right now with your little one!
