Kenya had so much fun with THE Teething Cookie: holding it, eating it, sucking on it and rubbing it on his gums. The best part is that there’s no sugar in them and they’re packed with healthy nutrients. I’ve been giving him one every night after dinner and it’s a great treat before bedtime.Getting to watch Chloe and Gemma enjoying the same homemade teething cookies when they were new eaters gave me the same thrill.

About the Author

Catherine is a mama of three. A Kentucky girl living in California. Here’s what I know: all kids can be great eaters and mealtime must be easy. I create simple, healthy recipes the whole family will love.


  1. I made these for my niece and would love to share the nutritional data with her moms-has it ever been posted?

  2. You can replace it with just about any flour. I added the soy flour for the boost of nutrition, but if you can’t find it, you can leave it out. 🙂 Quinoa flour would probably have the most nutrition. I haven’t tried it in this recipe, but let me know if you do and how it turns out!

  3. My baby is old enough for teething cookies and I’m looking forward to making these for her. I’m having a hard time finding the soy flour here in the northeast is there something I can use in place of it? All purpose? Quino flour? I look forward to hearing back from you.

  4. I used honey instead of molasses (for my 1 year old) coconut flour instead of soy, and almond milk and they came out great! I might eat the whole tray before she wakes up from her nap 😀

  5. These eventually turned out good, but I cannot get it to stick together and form a ball in my food processor.
    I eventually added a little extra molasses and squished it together by hand, but it was a pain and the dough didn’t turn out very uniform.

    What am I doing wrong??

  6. Due to allergies, my baby can’t have whole wheat flour, soy flour or wheat germ 🙁 Can I substitute other flours for this recipe! I would love to make this for my baby…but I can’t 🙁

  7. […] how you measured; cooked for about 10 minutes at 350). They were surprisingly easy – I used Weelicious as a jumping off point. I purchased Hyland tablets because those seemed like the right choice. […]
