Mexican Wheat Cookies

These whole-wheat flour cookies are simple to make and only use a few ingredients. Mexican wheat cookies are one of the most popular Mexican dessert recipes and their whole wheat, oats, and almonds make them heart healthy too. The oats and whole-wheat flour give the cookies a wholesome taste and the vanilla and almonds give them a sweet flavor and crunchy texture.

You can use normal whole-wheat flour for these whole-wheat cookies if you want but white whole-wheat flour makes the cookies lighter. These whole-wheat flour cookies can be enjoyed with a mug of coffee or hot chocolate, as a dessert or simply as a snack at any time of the day.

A lot of people these days are choosing whole wheat over white flour for the health benefits. The focus is often on healthy eating and minimizing your intake of refined carbohydrates. This is never a bad idea. Although eating processed flour in moderation is not as unhealthy as eating a lot of it, but if you want both a delicious flavor and a healthier alternative to bleached flour, why not try a recipe like this one? You will find the flavor of these Mexican wheat cookies to be wholesome and tasty, and even kids will not object to these having a slightly darker color than many other baked items.

Whatever kind of beverage you serve with these whole wheat cookies, they are sure to go down well. One of two of these will make the perfect pick-me-up when your spirits are beginning to flag during the late afternoon, and this kind of snack will keep you going until dinner time.

Have fun cutting these into shapes you wish. Perhaps you have some favorite cookie cutter shapes, or maybe you want to make Halloween, Christmas or Easter themed cookies. That is totally up to you. You might even like to make a variety of shapes but bear in mind smaller, thinner cookies will cook before larger, thicker ones, so try not to get them too different.
