Gingerbread Biscuits for Babies

Okay, so maybe this recipe doesn’t strictly use anything that I actually grew. But I’m including it here for three reasons; firstly, because there aren’t many recipes online specifically for baby biscuits (normal biscuits with tons of sugar in them, yes, but baby biscuits well not really). Secondly, I’m fed up of spending money on Organix biscuits that are just as easy to make at home (nothing against Organix, some of their stuff is really nice). And thirdly, I took some nice photos of them that I wanted to share with you.

I put the recipe together using a normal Gingerbread Man recipe but I’ve reduced the sugar, exchanged most of the Golden Syrup for honey and added orange juice to replace some of the sweetness. You might think that 100g of sugar is still quite a bit for a baby but this recipe makes at least 25 - 30 biscuits and when you taste them you’ll see that they’re not sweet at all. So here goes…Gingerbread Biscuits for Babies

Makes around 25 biscuits

Preheat oven to 190 degrees (gas mark 5)

Ingredients:

* 350g plain flour
* 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
* 2 teaspoons ground Ginger
* 100g unsalted butter
* 100g light muscovado sugar
* 2 tablespoons honey
* 1 tablespoon Golden Syrup
* 2 tablespoons orange juice
* 1 egg, beaten

Method:

1. Combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda and ginger in a bowl.
2. Rub in the butter to make fine breadcrumbs.

Stir in the sugar.
3. Add the honey, golden syrup, beaten egg and orange juice.
4. Bind together and knead on a floured surface until smooth. You can chill it in the fridge at this point if it’s too sticky.
5. Roll out until 1/4 inch thick. Cut out biscuits and place of a buttered baking sheet.
6. Bake in the oven for 8-10 mins. Keep an eye on them as they will burn quickly and become too hard.

*Remember, because the biscuits contain honey they shouldn’t be given to infants under one.

Happy eating!
