"Not too sweet" mini cookies

Share

When I was trying to find a teething biscuit for Kenya, I was shocked at how many recipes contained 1-2 cups of sugar. Do you really want your infant to be jazzed up on tons of sugar. I played around with a bunch of nutritious ingredients and came up with this soft and wholesome cookie Kenya loves.


We used these to make this recipe:

    Hi! I hope this isn’t silly but what is oatmeal cereal? I know to use rolled oats in recipes and I know what oat bran is but what do you mean by oatmeal cereal? Where do I look for it? Thank you so much for your awesome recipes!

      What is Oatmeal Cereal, is this rolled oats? Also what is brown rice syrup can you use maple syrup instead? And can I substitute almond flour for the soy flour?

    I was thinking of making these for my little ones for Easter. Could I use instant oats or oat flour for the oatmeal cereal? Thanks!

      I do! I have very poor thyroid fioutcnn and Mag hes really helped my bm count and consistency. I know that may be TMI but when you are as bad off as I was, you are willing to tell anyone when you find helpI also recently had a very early miscarriage but was having morning sickness first. Previously I have had Hyperemisis and this time I noticed and didn’t really want to eat, but I was not debilitated. I understood how some can say O I might have to step over to the sink once or twice when I’m cooking but that is all for the whole pregnancy

    What if I don’t have wheat germ or soy flour? What can I use in substitution?

    Thank you.

      You can replace both of those with more whole wheat flour. They are there to provide added nutrition. I highly recommend going out and getting some wheat germ! It is becoming more common to find in your local grocery. If you live near a Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s you can find it there. Or check out your local health food store if your grocery doesn’t carry it! :)

    My son is 16 months old so there is no egg issue, can I use the whole egg? Also, I need to make it as high fat as possible, can I use whole milk or heavy cream instead of the almond milk? Thanks!

      I have the same problem but my dad is a great cook and told me you can use foelie instead of molasses. definition I could not find any of it here in the netherlands
      foelie is:
      Mace is the husk of the nutmeg, from the nutmeg tree. The evergreen nutmeg tree is 15 meters high and can admit fruit with proper care annually to three times. Dried mace has an orange-red color and is finer flavor than nutmeg. Despite the fact that they come from the same tree, one should see. Them as two separate spices
      Mace can be added to both sweet and savory dishes such as fish, beef stews and béchamel. One can mace best just before serving add the. The best meats contain mace instead of nutmeg

      hope it is any use
