Banana Baby Biscuits

Banana Baby Biscuits

Yield: 24 Biscuits

After having a surplus of baby cereal, I needed to find a way to use some of it up. A friend sent me a list of several recipes starring baby cereal, and I used some of those as reference, but ultimately created my own.

This is a great way to use almost a whole box if you’re looking to rid your cabinets of the less-than-appealing baby cereals. It also comes in handy in buying yourself a few minutes if your baby is as impatient as our little guy is when it comes to eating. Hand them one of these while you finish prepping their meal!

Ingredients
2 1/4 cups baby cereal (I used rice cereal)
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 overripe banana, mashed
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon water

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 300° while you make the biscuits.

Cream together the softened butter along with the sugar and overripe, mashed banana.

Add in the egg, baking powder, salt, vanilla and the water. Stir until all ingredients are well combined.

Next, add the baby cereal – about a half cup at a time till all of it becomes incorporated.

After you’ve added the baby cereal, knead the mixture with your hands until the dough pulls together.

Once the dough’s been kneaded enough for handling, roll into a ball and flatten into a rectangle about 12×6 inches.

Instead of using flour, as you would to prevent dough from sticking to a surface, I used some additional baby cereal – and it worked just as well!

When you have the rectangle laid out cut the dough lengthwise into three strips, then cut each of these strips into 4 smaller rectangles.

Cut each of these smaller rectangles (you should have 12) in half and you will end up with 24 in total. They don’t have to be perfect, mine sure weren’t by any means.

Place each of the banana biscuits onto an un-greased cookie sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on your oven.

I baked mine for 23 minutes, then turned the broiler on for an additional 2 minutes to brown the tops.
But you should exercise your own judgement here.

Let cool and hand to your little one’s as a snack or as a supplement to any of their meals!
