The recipe calls for use of oats flour along with sorghum (jowar) flour , white sesame seeds , little coconut oil and an over ripe banana. I have added a little cinnamon powder to flavor the biscuits. These teething biscuits can be baked either in a microwave oven or cooker. The biscuits remain good for about a week when kept in an air tight container at room temperature. No salt or baking powder is used in this recipe.
