I’ve discovered that you make make sweet things better for your family if you replace the whites with browns and halve the yellows. In other words, replace the white flour with whole-wheat flour and the white sugar with brown sugar. I replace half the butter or margarine in each recipe with applesauce. No one is the wiser, and I feel better about serving fewer refined ingredients. If you don’t believe me, do a taste test with the brownie recipes. Let me know what your family thinks!
