Sometimes making sweet recipes with whole ingredients is a little scary. But the truth is that the results can be more than exquisite! You will get as good results as with all-purpose flour! Making flour mixtures may be a good way to get started on the whole wheat thing.

Let’s talk about the recipe:

These quince cookies with whole wheat flour are simple to make, it does not require a great experience to prepare. The ingredients used are few, frequently used and easy to find. This time the recipe has been made with quince paste. But it can also be used with sweet potato paste, for example.

About the ingredients:

At Integralisimo, the whole wheat flour used is 100% whole grain, fine ground (I don’t use mixes unless I mention it). In general, depending on its brand, it can absorb more or less amount of liquid. So I recommend incorporating them gradually. Keep in mind that the lower the volume is, smaller final product you will get.

The fat used is butter, but it can be replaced by margarine, olive oil, sunflower oil, etc. As a result, depending on which fat is used, its texture can be modified. Therefore, the type of ingredient used to make a specific recipe should always be taken into account.

About Cooking:

Its cooking requires little time and like any whole grain recipe, if it is punctual, much better. Therefore, it is important to adapt the cooking according to the type of oven you have because the time may be different. In this way, you will get as a result, some delicious cookies with whole wheat flour!
