“I made this up based on a doggie biscuit recipe. It makes lots and lots of cookies but they freeze well so keep some in your freezer! Yield is a guess because I forgot to count them before.”
75 tiny cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Baby food note: I used Organix's Apple, Strawberry& blueberry compote; it's apple puree, water, blueberry puree, strawberry puree and ground rice.
  2. 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.
  3. Measure out dry ingredients into a bowl and whisk together.
  4. 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.
  5. Add egg white and mix to combine.
  6. This makes a very thick and solid dough mixture but it will still be sticky.
  7. Roll the mixture into tiny little balls about half an inch or so wide and flatten them slightly.
  8. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake at 175C (non fan oven) or somewhere inbetween 175 and 150C for a fan oven.
  9. 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.
  10. This took about 8 minutes in my oven (fan oven) to give you an idea of the length of time.
  11. Cool then store in an airtight container or in the freezer in a freezer-appropriate container.
