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.

I made this with whole wheat pastry flour yummy light fluffy cakes tastes better than with regular flour and I used 2 eggs since I have chickens.....

I am always a little uncertain about "wholewheat" sweets but as I need to improve my diet, I tried this for myself and my 9 yo old. Fabulous!! I omitted the sugar altogether, only used half the oil and Almond milk instead of buttermilk.. perfect with a lovely fructose-only fruit jam and, for my son, maple syrup!! A keeper!!

Amazing - they don't taste as "healthy" as you think. Just super light and perfect- like whole wheat hotcakes. Perfect quantity for 2 people. This is a keeper :)
