One of the mummies in my mummy group came for a tyrant play date the other day and brought some hedgehog teething cookies for Veronika which were a huge hit! She screamed when I took one away, so I thought I'd better learn how to make them. Izzy kindly gave me the reciple, so here it is:
50g wholemeal flour
150g plain white flour or more
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 medium ripe banana
3 tablespoons apple concentrate, or some other sweetener that isn't sugar (NOT honey)
Put the flours, semolina, ginger and cinnamon into a mixing bowl and rub in the butter. Mash the banana well with the apple concentrate and stir into the mixture, along with the egg to make a smooth pliable dough.
Roll out on lightly floured surface and cut into shapes with biscuit cutters. Bake on lightly greased baking trays in an oven pre-heated to 200 degrees C for around 15-20 mins until golden and firm.
I had no idea what Apfeldicksaft was and after failing to find it in the supermarket, and being directed by the shop assistant to completely the wrong thing, I took Izzy's advice and took myself and my bear off to the health store where we found it. I still don't really know what it is or what it is in English, but it's some sort of very thick syrup like apple concentrate.
You have to use your judgement a bit with the flour as depending how big the banana is and how thick the apple concentrate is, you'll need more or less.
As you can see, they're a huge hit! Thanks, Izzy! They're also great snacks for older kids too.
