Recipe of the Week! Whole Wheat Carrot Biscuits for babies

So I decided to find some baby food recipes to experiment with since Shrade has now decided to eat! I found this Homemade Baby Food blog that posted this easy and yummy treat. I made this for Shrade and he loves them. This is good for babies under a year because it does not have eggs.

Here's the recipe:

2 oz (1/2 cup) whole wheat flour
2 oz (1/2 cup) all purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
2 tsp brown sugar
2 tbsp butter
6 oz (3/4 cup) cooked, mashed carrots
2 to 4 fl oz (1/4 to 1/2 cup) milk
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

Preheat the oven to 375 deg F (180 deg C).
Mix the flour, baking powder and brown sugar together in a bowl.
Rub in the butter until the mixture looks like bread crumbs.
Mix in the mashed carrots, then add enough of the milk to form a soft dough.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface to a thickness of 1/2 inch, then cut with a cookie cutter into circles (I used hearts).
Grease a baking sheet and place the biscuits on it, at least one inch apart.
Bake until golden (around 10-15 mins).
