How to Make Oat Flour {recipe} – You Oat to…

homemade oat flour
“More oats?!” you’re saying as you roll your eyes, right?

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.

Yup it is that easy!! I think if you wanted a more powdery feel (like real flour) you should get a coffee grinder or best thing is a Vitamix – anything goes to powder in that!

Can oat flour replace whole. wheat flour on a 1:1 basis? I’m so excited about making oat flour. I just for a Nutri bullet that comes with a milling blade. DH refuses to buy anything other than (cheap) Not good for you white processed flour.
