Whole Wheat Pastry Flour is 100% stone ground from the finest soft white wheat. The lower protein content of this flour makes it perfect for whole grain baked goods like pie crusts, cakes, cookies, biscuits and pancakes. Home kitchens find this flour is the perfect choice because it is so nutrient dense yet yields baked treats with a tender texture.


Bob's Red Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour is 100% stone—ground, whole grain flour made from U.S.-grown soft white wheat. The whole wheat berries are milled with the nutritious bran, germ and endosperm all intact. Many people ask how whole wheat pastry flour is different from whole wheat flour. The answer is simple: whole wheat pastry flour is milled from soft white wheat, whereas regular whole wheat flour is milled from hard red wheat. It has a lower protein content than regular whole wheat flour and it makes wonderfully tender whole grain baked goods. Our Whole Wheat Pastry Flour is a good source of dietary fiber and provides 3 grams of protein per serving.

Whole Wheat Pastry Flour is a great way to punch up the nutrition in all your baked goods. Use Bob's Red Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour for whole grain treats including all manner of pastries, biscuits, scones, pie crusts, pancakes, brownies, cookies cakes and cupcakes. It is a great choice for virtually any recipe where baking soda or baking powder is used as leavening. It will not work as well with yeast—risen baked goods. Find recipes using Whole Wheat Pastry Flour in the recipe section of our website, and look for these great recipes on the package: Cranberry Orange Almond Bread, Peanut Butter & Honey Cookies, and Oregon Blackberry Pie.

16 Reviews For "Whole Wheat Pastry Flour"

  1. Great for baking and pancakes!

    by Ana Maria on 04 Tue,2017


    I use the Whole Wheat Pastry Flour for muffins and pancakes mostly. With some whole wheat flours baked goods and pancakes tend to be more dry and have an odd texture, but not with this one. Everything is fluffy and rises as well as with white flour, but you need to supplement the liquid by a small amount.

  2. great flour, works perfectly

    by Danielle on 06 Fri,2016


    For cookies, or other recipes where a too dry baked good might be a problem, I usually add 10% less of this because the bran absorbs more moisture. Works great every time.

  3. Excellent results

    by Patt on 01 Sat,2016


    Fantastic flour. Have used it for biscuits, quick breads and cookies excellent results :D

  4. Almost Couldn't Find It

    by nordicamama on 11 Sun,2015


    This is a good product that I've been buying for years. However, I almost couldn't find it last time I was at the grocery store because they changed their packing, and it is so difficult to read the labels. It looks so similar to the other packing labels they have, that it's hard to differentiate between the different types of flour. The previous packaging was much easier to read and more attractive. The colors on this are bright and irritating, and make the words difficult to read.

  5. Really suprised!

    by pastrygirl on 10 Tue,2013

    I was reluctant to bake with this flour. I'm a white flour baker all the way. I made a bananna bread a was shocked at the results. It had a beautiful crumb and exceptional texture. Tasted so close to it's white counterpart. No one could tell the difference. I'm going to expand and try making a more delicate cake and see what happens. Thanks Bob's

  6. I would buy this product again

    by jerseyjoeinflor on 10 Mon,2012

    This is an excellent whole wheat pastry flour for muffins and pie pastry dough. It made delicious bran and corn muffins and a very tasty flaky pie crust for pumpkin pie. I particularly like this flour for bran muffins and pie crusts for pumpkin pie. This whole soft wheat flour blends well and tastes delicious with dark spices such as cinnamon and cloves and cereals such as bran flakes. I have a sensitive palate and can taste the whole wheat in my baking products. I have a strong feeling that when I use this pastry flour for pumpkin nut bread, oatmeal raison cookies and carrot cake, it will be scrumptious and something to die for!

  7. Fantastic flour

    by Pam on 11 Wed,2011

    I used this wonderful flour to make scones. They turned out light, flakey and flavorful. I can't wait to use this flour in all my baking!

  8. Best Flour!

    by Skyla on 01 Thu,2011

    I am on a no-yeast, sugar, or refined-foods diet. This flour is perfect for my needs, because it tastes good like white flour but has the health benefits of whole wheat. I use it for sugar-free muffins, indian bread, brownies - you name it! Since I found it I have recommended to everybody!

  9. A Healthy Choice.

    by Nico on 01 Mon,2011

    I use this in nearly everything I bake. Last week I made a calzone, a pizza crust, and some pies using this flour and it worked wonderfully. It's very flavorful, healthy, and very easy to knead and work with.

  10. Wonderful Product

    by Angie on 12 Thu,2010

    I used this flour for pancakes, which turned out extremely fluffy and wonderful. From now on this is the only flour I am going to use for pancakes and waffles. Thank you Bob's Red Mill--your product is a real gem !

  11. Best whole wheat pastry flour

    by PJ on 11 Tue,2010

    This is excellent flour. If you have tried other whole wheat pastry flour only to find that it was bitter(rancid)when opened, you are in for a treat. Fresh flour should never taste bitter, but many whole grain flours do. Bob's is sold fresh, never bitter. It has made it easy for us to convert to whole grain. I love this product!

  12. Love this flour!

    by Ragan on 11 Wed,2010

    I started using this flour because I had a high triglyceride level during routine blood tests. I have used it in biscuits, quick breads, and even cookies and cakes. People can't even tell the difference unless I tell them that's what I used! I buy 20 pounds at a time. (My triglyceride levels also dropped, thanks to not only this but lots of other Bob's products.) It is finer-textured and lighter in color than standard whole wheat flour and it is truly wonderful to have an alternative to white flour!

  13. Awesome

    by susie the chef on 10 Mon,2010

    I tried it for the first time to make pancakes. They were very scrumptious. I am excited to try more recipes with it.

  14. Best stuff ever!

    by Wendy on 09 Thu,2010

    Makes unbelievably delicious cookies and pastries - yet offers a healthy way to get whole-wheat into your diet. My kids actually think this makes better cookies than regular flour! I always have a backup bag of this flour in my pantry.

  15. Pie crusts

    by Frannicelli on 06 Sat,2010

    I make pie crusts from this whole grain flour that are good looking and tasty. Not quite as flakey as with white flour, but wonderful nevertheless.

  16. I love this flour for pie ...

    by Cookie25 on 01 Sat,2010


    I love this flour for pie crust, but only for more "earthy" pies like apple and pumpkin. I make one awesomely delicious apple pie using this flour, apples, 1/2 cup sugar, cinnamon, and shortening.
