DIRECTIONS

  • Baby food note: I used Organix's Apple, Strawberry& blueberry compote; it's apple puree, water, blueberry puree, strawberry puree and ground rice.
  • You can change this to make different flavoured cookies- just avoid any baby food that contains leeks, onions, chives, spices, garlic or lemon juice as these ingredients are not good for hamsters.
  • Measure out dry ingredients into a bowl and whisk together.
  • Add in the baby food and about half a jar of water- If you're mixing by hand, rub and press down the mixture with the back of your spoon while mixing.
  • Add egg white and mix to combine.
  • This makes a very thick and solid dough mixture but it will still be sticky.
  • Roll the mixture into tiny little balls about half an inch or so wide and flatten them slightly.
  • Place on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake at 175C (non fan oven) or somewhere inbetween 175 and 150C for a fan oven.
  • These don't take long to bake because they're so small- only bake them until they go a light brown around the outer edges.
  • This took about 8 minutes in my oven (fan oven) to give you an idea of the length of time.
  • Cool then store in an airtight container or in the freezer in a freezer-appropriate container.
