How to make your own oat flour

Standard

So this is more of a how-to post than an actual recipe, but you know… whatevs. Instead of spending $13 on pre-made oat flour, you can make your own oat flour at home! It’s incredibly easy and you just need oats and a food processor. IMG_2746

If you’re crazy, like me, you can sift the oats after blending to get a fine flour, but that of course requires at least TRIPLE the time and energy. If you’re bored, then doing that is a great way to use up time.

I like to use oat flour in place of flours in many baked goods, I love it in this cookie recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie.  The oat flour gives a more fudge-y and cakey texture.

And because I am terrible at making oatmeal with real oats, I use oat flour to make porridge. Makes me feel like I live in the Oliver Twist times, eating gruel and porridge.

Oat Flour Recipe

For about 2 cups you will need

  • 2 cups oats (about 300 g)

Just blend it in your food processor, blender, or Magic Bullet. If you don’t want to spend time sifting the flour, blend a little longer. Blend for at least 30 seconds or until you have your desired flour consistency. Happy baking!
