I have only made these pancakes with fresh ground whole wheat flour. If you are using store bought wheat flour I would use 3/4 cup wheat and 1/4 cup white to keep the pancakes from being too heavy. If using store bought flour you can omit sifting. If you would like to learn more about why I sift my flour you can read my sifting whole wheat flour article.
