I just made these for Mykah, my 14 month old daughter, and she loves them! They are firm but soft enough for her to gnaw on which may feel good on her gums and they take her a few minutes so it’s a great “entertainment snack” as well.
- 2 cups flax seeds, ground
- 1 cup dried apricots, soaked (preferably organic no added sugar)
- 1 cup coconut water
Combine all ingredients in a food processor using the s-blade. From here I experimented with a few cooking methods. You can just form batter into small THIN cookies and bake at 350 for about 30-40 minutes. For a healthier “raw” food version dehydrate the cookies at 145 for 2 hours then 115 for 4-6 hours. Be sure and keep the cookies small and thin. You can also spread them thin using to two pieces of parchment paper (they will stick a little so you will have to work with them) and then score them to make little crackers? I liked the consistency of the dehydrated version the best.
Enjoy! What’s your favorite raw/live food snack for kids???
