Oat flour from scratch!

In this article we’ll go through the steps of making oat flour! It’s much lighter than the variant made from wheat so it can get much fluffier in baked as well! I find that toasting it can give a much better flavour too- the flavour is somewhat close to a more nutty and earthy flavour!

When you’re done making this ingredient we have numerous recipes you can use this in! How about our apple cobbler, or maybe a quiche if you’re using it in pie pastry! The limit is endless and make sure that the oats are gluten free if you’re going for that!

You can also use it for a face mask which we have our results of it on here.

Oat Flour Recipe

These are the oats that we will be using for the recipe!

First you’ll want to get your oats. Any oats will do as long as you can throw them into a blender! Make sure not to fill the blender over halfway to make sure it doesn’t overfill.

Sieving the oats will allow the oat flour to come out into the bowl. You’ll want to blend whatever won’t sieve out to get more oat flour out of it.

Once the oats have finished blending for around 5 minutes take around 2 tablespoons and put it into a sieve. Sift it into a large bowl and put whatever hasn’t been sieved into a separate bowl to put back into the blender once the blender is emptied. When you put unprocessed oats back into the blender repeat the steps from the start.

These can be used in so many recipes for delicious bakes! Have fun exploring the power of this flour!

Woo! It’s done! The flour will store for as long as wheat flour stores if stored correctly. I usually store them in mason jars for immediate use later in the month. Below is a much shorter form of the recipe so we hope you enjoy cooking with the flour!
