"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:

"Not too sweet" mini cookies  (makes 22 1-inch bars)

    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!

    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!
