Baking with whole wheat
This morning (with Olivia nearby instead of waiting until her naptime) I made these chocolate chip cookies. Not that they're super healthy compared to the regular kind, but these have less sugar, all wheat flour, fewer chips (all I had), and oatmeal. A little crispy around the edges and crumbly from the oatmeal, but still good. Since my idea of "healthier" is more concerned with sugar than fat, I want to keep the butter in the recipe but substitute something for the sugar. I'm thinking applesauce is going to make the dough too runny. Thoughts?
