Organic Sesame Cookie for A Baby

I personally do not trust ready-made baby biscuits or cookies even though they say “organic”.  They are still highly processed and contain many non-essential ingredients.

Earth’s Best Brand’s “Teething Biscuits – Barley” has the following ingredients: Organic barley flour, organic oat flour, organic evaporated cane juice (organic evaporated cane juice, organic corn starch), organic sunflower oil, organic non-fat dry milk, organic corn flour, organic molasses, calcium carbonate, leavening (sodium bicarbonate, cream of tartar, monocalcium phosphate), organic corn starch, vitamin E acetate (vitamin E).

HAPPYBABY Organic Puffs, Greens Puffs, has the following ingredients:
Organic Rice, Organic Whole Oats, Organic Wheat, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Brown Rice, Organic Wheat Starch, Organic Spinach, Organic Collard Greens, Organic Kale. Vitamins and Minerals: Di- and Tri- Calcium Phosphate (Calcium), Mixed Tocopherols (Vitamin E), Ferric Orthophosphate (Iron), Vitamin D3, Niacin (Vitamin B3), Zinc Oxide, D-calcium Pantothenate (Vitamin B5), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Thiamin Mononitrate (Vitamin B1), Pyridoxine Hcl (Vitamin B6), Vitamin B12, Folic Acid. No Dairy. No Corn. No Soy. Contains: Wheat.

So, both contain ” Organic Evaporated Cane Juice” , and Earth’s Best has organic molasses, leavening (sodium bicarbonate, cream of tartar, monocalcium phosphate). Happy Baby puffs are highly processed (do you see Kale in the ingredients?) I am sure they are good, but I don’t want to feed my baby with them. If I want to use already made snacks, I normally use “Little Duck” Organics’ Tiny Fruits” which contains nothing but organic freeze dried fruits (3 different flavors: Apple/Blueberry, Apple/Banana, Mango/Strawberry)

However, it is much healthier if you make your own cookies from scratch with the best ingredients. So, I wanted to make a biscuit/cookie for my baby (I’ve already made muffins for her) and looked for some recipes then found “Sesame cookie”. They don’t use “Organic” products, but I made it with organic ingredients without any alternation on quantities.  Definitely, the cookie isn’t so sweet. Those babies who get used to eat sweet food may not like this cookie, but if your baby hasn’t tried anything, you may want to try this recipe… Oh my husband like the cookie but with his favorite chocolate ice cream 🙂
