Sugar free wheatgerm and oat biscuits for babies and toddlers

I've been struggling for a sugar free biscuit for some time.  This almost gets there.  It's not really sweet but passed the test with my son.  He's already eaten all of his tea and his pudding and saw these on the cooling rack.  He pointed to them so I gave him one.  3 biscuits later...



My only reservation is they are really crumbly so I will experiment with reducing the amount of wheatgerm and increasing the amount of flour which should improve the structure.  That said, they hold together a little better when cool and my son coped with them.  They'd be pretty awesome with cheese actually.

Wheatgerm and oat biscuits for babies and toddlers makes 20-30

Ingredients

50g Plain Flour
150g Wheatgerm
50g Porridge Oats
100g Unsalted butter
1 Egg yolk

Method

Preheat the oven to 180oC.  Prepare two baking trays by lining them with non stick baking paper.

Mix the flour, wheatgerm and oats in a bowl.  Add the butter and rub in until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs.  Add the yolk and knead in the bowl until it comes together.

Roll the dough out on a floured surface (it will crack a little).   Cut out the biscuits in the shape of your choice.  I used a hexagon to avoid waste!



Put onto the baking trays and bake in the oven for 12-15 mins or until browning at the edges.  Allow to cool a little on the trays then put onto a cooling rack.
