Whole wheat & fluffy?--Yes! I couldn't believe it either until I tried it. I'm not sure if it was because I milled my own wheat or not, but I'll be making this as my standard pancake recipe now.

These pancakes actually are light and fluffy and delicious! I cut the oil in half and omitted the sugar completely (then smothered with butter and maple syrup, of course!) and they were great. My husband agreed this is a keeper.

Great! Used white whole wheat flour and added blueberries. This will be my regular recipe from now on.

These were fantastic! I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of regular and butter instead of oil. They were so fluffy and delicious. I'll definitely make them again, thanks for the recipe.
