If you need to avoid wheat in your baby’s diet, these recipes for wheat free teething biscuits are ideal.
If your baby suffers from an allergy to wheat or gluten intolerance, you may also like to visit our wheat flour substitutes page. This will help you create biscuits for your baby using our standard teething biscuit recipes, by replacing the wheat flour with a safe alternative.
Remember: Discuss the introduction of these wheat free teething biscuits – and any new foods – with your child’s doctor.
Refer to our main teething biscuits page for more information about the ingredients listed in these recipes, suitable alternatives you could use and the right time to introduce these foods to your baby.
These biscuits are fairly hard, with a nice ‘knobbly’ texture on the outside. However, they DO crumble and are better suited to older babies. Please remember to use your discretion when deciding whether or not to offer teething biscuits to your child.

2 tbsp butter
4 oz (1/2 cup) sugar
1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp water
8 oz to 10 oz (2 to 1/2 cups) rolled oats (process them briefly in a food processor to create a finer texture)

These biscuits have a firm – almost ‘tough’ texture – so they stand up quite well to a good gnawing! We barely processed the oats for the biscuits in our photo as our little one liked the texture, but you can grind them right down if you prefer. If you choose NOT to grind the oats too much, we find that a little MORE flour is required to bind the mixture together.
4 oz (1 cup) non-wheat flour
4 oz rolled oats (process them briefly in a food processor to create a finer texture)
8 fl oz (1 cup) natural orange juice.
