Can I use a mix of wheat and all-purpose or whole flour for this recipe? I try to use at least half wheat flour when I bake to make it a little healthier and to add some fiber to the recipe. I like to use sweetener when I can too, but you can't always take the place of real sugar in some of these treats.
