BourBon Biscuits With Whole Wheat: A Kid-Friendly Simple Cookie Recipe

Chocolate cookies on your mind?What about Bourbon biscuits? Well, I am no longer a chocolate lover that I once was. Nevertheless, I have been waiting to try out these chocolate cookies for some time. Now the time was ripe enough for me to give these baked beauties a try. I had a visit scheduled to my mom's place, and my nephew and niece are chocolate lovers, just like all little kiddos.

So could there be a better time to bake whole wheat bourbon biscuits? I wanted to make it healthier with whole wheat and oatmeal. This gives you an easy oatmeal recipe to try out.

You may want to add a natural flavoring agent to make the eggless whole wheat cookies more kid friendly. I did not add anything and felt that the aroma of ghee was a little overpowering for the little ones. Nevertheless, my 1 and a half-year-old Paro loved munching on the homemade chocolate cookies with whole wheat flour. I am yet to deliver the second batch to my nephew Sherry. Keeping fingers crossed!

A little about Bourbon Biscuits

The sandwich type chocolate cookies ideally consist of thin rectangular layers, one topped with another using a chocolate buttercream filling.

I have made these Bourbon biscuits without filling. But if you are interested, go ahead with whipping up 2 tbsp butter with 2 tsp cocoa powder and 1 tbsp sugar powder (more as per taste preferences). Whisk the filling well until incorporated and then layer it inside the biscuits one atop another.
