Soothing Homemade Teething Biscuits: A Recipe for Happy Babies and Parents

Teething can be a challenging time for both babies and parents. As your little one's first teeth start to emerge, they may experience discomfort and irritability. Fortunately, there are natural remedies you can offer to help ease their discomfort, such as homemade teething biscuits.

Not only are these biscuits soothing for sore gums, but they're also a tasty and nutritious snack for your little one to enjoy. In this blog post, we'll share a simple and wholesome recipe for homemade teething biscuits that your baby will love.

Teething Biscuits


- 1 cup whole wheat flour

- 1 cup baby oatmeal cereal (or regular oatmeal ground into a fine powder)

- 1 ripe banana, mashed

- 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)

- Water, as needed


1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour and baby oatmeal cereal. If you're using regular oatmeal, you can grind it into a fine powder using a food processor or blender before adding it to the bowl.

3. Add the mashed banana, melted coconut oil, and ground cinnamon (if using) to the dry ingredients. Mix well until a dough forms. If the dough seems too dry, you can add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until it comes together.

4. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to about 1/4 inch thickness. Use a cookie cutter or a knife to cut out shapes, such as small rectangles or circles, depending on your preference.

5. Place the shaped biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving a little space between each one.

6. Bake the teething biscuits in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until they are firm and lightly golden brown around the edges.

7. Once baked, remove the biscuits from the oven and let them cool completely on a wire rack before serving.

8. Store the teething biscuits in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week, or freeze them for longer storage. Just be sure to thaw them completely before serving to your little one.

Optional Tips and Variations:

- You can customize the flavor of the teething biscuits by adding different fruits or spices. Try using pureed sweet potato, pumpkin, or applesauce instead of banana for variety. You can also experiment with spices like nutmeg or ginger for added flavor.

- For babies with allergies or sensitivities, you can substitute the whole wheat flour with rice flour or almond flour. Just keep in mind that the texture and flavor of the biscuits may vary slightly.

- To make the biscuits easier for your baby to hold and chew, you can shape them into finger-sized sticks or strips instead of traditional biscuit shapes.

- If your baby is still in the early stages of teething and has sensitive gums, you can make the biscuits softer by adding more mashed banana or applesauce to the dough.


Homemade teething biscuits are a simple and wholesome snack that can provide relief for your baby during the teething process. By using natural ingredients and avoiding additives or preservatives found in store-bought teething biscuits, you can feel confident knowing that you're offering your little one a safe and nutritious treat. Give this easy recipe a try and watch as your baby happily munches away on these soothing biscuits, leaving both of you with smiles on your faces.
