When the clouds roll in and there is a chill to the air, a cup of hot something and a cookie are often a wonderful treat at the end of a long day. So, how do we still indulge in a little something sweet without going overboard? We take our recipes and substitue healthier alternatives when possible.

While this chocolate glazed pumpkin cookie recipe that @aminichols tweeted yesterday doesn’t specifically call for whole wheat flour, it looks too delicious to pass up. I checked with her to determine if whole wheat flour would work and she advised to do ‘half whole wheat, half white flour on the first try, because sometimes going whole wheat 100% is too dry.’
Which of your favorite cookies have you baked substituting whole wheat flour and how did they turn out?
