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. […]

  12. These are great. My 8 month-old and my almost 3-year old sonboth love these. They get a little messy, but stationed in the high chair, I can get him cleaned up just fine. These are a great addition to my repertoire, when my baby needs something in his hands before I can get his food all ready to feed him, because I need to set him down.

  13. These are great, first saw them from Vicki Lansky Feed Me I’m Yours book. I have replaced the soy flour and just used extra wheat germ – love how you changed up the recipe to add molasses!

  14. I also want to know about soy flour… I normally don’t use it and don’t want to buy a package just for 1 tbsp. Can it be substituted for something else?

  15. Hi there!! This is for kirbi! Do you have recipes for treats? My daughter is very very allergic to all wheat rice oats arrowroot tapioca all grains.
    She can have corn! So I am learning how to cook with that. I have tried cooking with potato flour but I can’t figure it out. And I have also trying coconut flour. Made her pancakes but she didn’t understand it! Have to try again! Any help would be great!

  16. I think a much healthier version would be to take out all soy and vegetable oil for starters. And also try to make something without grains using maybe arrowroot, almond flour, coconut flour, or even flax/chia seed meal.

  17. I know from making my older child teething cookies that soy flour really maKes the cookIes tough to stand up to baby’s saliva. And the molasses is also a good binder. I will sub the whole wheat flour for rice flour to ensure the cookies are tough enough.

  18. This looks like a great recipe but I cannot get molasses anywhere 🙁 Can I substitute it with agave nectar or golden syrup? Can my baby have them at 8 months of age? Thank you

  19. Just wondering if the soy flour is an important addition to the two teething cookie recipes you sent me. Can I just omit it or replace the small amount with regular flour or something else more common?

  20. Your recipe was quick and easy! I didn’t have soy flour or wheat germ so I used Oat Bran, ground flax seeds and some brewers yeast. I also used water instead of rice/soy milk. My little one loves them! I am going to make a batch as giveaways for her 1st birthday. Thank you for sharing.
