Banana-Oat Teething Biscuits

By Julie Van Rosendaal on February 19, 2019



1 very ripe banana
2 tbsp (30 ml) canola or olive oil
1 tbsp (15 ml) water
2 cups (500 ml) oat flour or oat or mixed grain baby cereal


1. Preheat oven to 350˚F.

2.In a medium bowl, mash the banana well with the canola oil and water. Add the flour and stir—don’t be afraid to use your hands—until you have a soft, smooth dough. (Add another spoonful of water if necessary. The moisture level will depend largely on the size and moisture of the banana.)

3. Roll the dough out about 1/4-inch thick and cut into smooth shapes (circles or sticks, without pointy edges—round them a bit with your fingers if necessary) and transfer to an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 15–20 minutes, until pale golden. Cool completely and store extras in an airtight container.

Makes 1–2 dozen teething biscuits, depending on their size.
