When baking cookies and cakes, always use FINELY GROUND whole wheat flour (if you have a wheat grinder). Turn the knob to the finest setting and then grind. Use the freshly ground flour and then you won't have to sift it. If you are using previously ground flour, be sure to sift it.
If you don't have a wheat grinder, be sure to sift your whole wheat flour. Your flour will not be the same "fine" grind, but it will still be good. They are just better if they are finely ground.
