While you can replace some of the flour for whole wheat, I don't believe you can exchange the wheat for white totally.  Querry that on VBB or on the web.  Glad you've come to the Boards.

GRANA here;
Hi FRED
If I remember . correctly  use one  cup whole wheat four, less 2TBS for one cup of all purpose flour....If using baking powder use 1-1/2 tsp..  for each one cup of all putpose flour (50% more BP than when using AP flour  )  directions are the same but do not sift .Do not over mix  or  your product will be tough .... I've used this formula for making  cookies,  brownies &  bread, but to play it safe use recipes that call for whole wheat flour for best results

This question reminded me of one I have been meaning to ask of everyone! Do I assume correctly that I can substitute unbleached all-purpose flour for regular all-purpose flour? Target had King Arthur's unbleached flour for half price and I couldn't resist buying a 5 lb. bag!

Yes the measurements would be the same for bleached or unbleached.
As a matter of fact I read somewhere that a lot of bakers prefer unbleached for bread so there is not the possibility that the chemicals used for bleaching will effect the yeast.

From what I have read start with 3/4 regular flour and 1/4 whole wheat if you like the results gradually increase the whole wheat until you get a 50/50 mix much more than 50% whole wheat will result in a very dense product.  At that point look for recipes specifically using more whole wheat or all whole wheat.
