No, no, the Oatmeal Project is over, but that doesn’t mean oats aren’t a part of our diet anymore. Quite the opposite, actually. We think oats have a permanent spot in our daily lives. But like every life-long relationship, we’ve got to keep things interesting, so we’re adding oat flour to things that usually require regular old wheat flour like muffins, quickbreads and…pancakes.
But there’s no need to go out and buy oat flour. If you have a decent food processor you can make oat flour at home with rolled oats. Just throw them into the food processor and pulse until the oats are down to the texture of a coarse flour. It took us less than two minutes.
