Tip 2. Use Some Whole-Wheat Flour

I used to think whole-wheat flour made baked goods taste like cardboard, but thankfully this isn’t the case. If a recipe calls for all-purpose flour, I swap out half of it for white whole-wheat flour. White whole-wheat flour for baking looks and tastes similar to all-purpose, but it’s higher in fiber (about 12 grams per cup vs. 3 grams for white flour). Look for it in well-stocked supermarkets next to the other flours or in the baking section of your local natural food store.
