Health Benefits

  • Soy flour is an amazing source of soy proteins and fibre. There are many essential oils present in soybeans, and making your own flour gives you the full advantage of preserving all the natural oils found in soy.
  • Wheat and soy flour cookies for babies are also the perfect solution for vegetarian and vegan parents who cannot give meat to their kids. As soy contains almost all the essential nutrients, it is a good supplement by itself.
  • Honey is highly nutritious as it is rich in enzymes, amino acids, minerals, and antioxidants that are necessary for the body. It sweetens the cookies without adding extra sugar.

Shopping Guide

  • While the ingredients for your simple wheat and soy flour cookies recipe are limited, they need to be sourced organically to avoid allergies and health risks.
  • The three most commonly found types of soy flour are full-fat flour with all the natural oils intact, low-fat flour, which only has about 1/3rd of the natural oils, and defatted flour that has no natural oils. Since oils are essential for babies, it’s better to use the full-fat flour.
  • If your infant is under one year old, it’s better to avoid raw honey as it contains pollen and other contaminants. It also carries with it a high risk of infant botulism, which can be dangerous for babies under six months of age.
