Oat Flour Recipes

If you’re in the mood to do some simple yet satisfying gluten-free baking, give these oat flour recipes a try. Oat flour is a nutritious, whole grain flour that adds a nutty flavour and satisfying texture to cakes, cookies, muffins, and other delicious baked goods.

How To Make Oat Flour

Oat flour is easy to make at home. All you need is a food processor or high powered blender. It’s less expensive to make at home than it is to purchase store bought oat flour, and it only takes a few minutes to prepare.

To make oat flour, simply blend up some rolled oats in a food processor or high powered blender until a powdery consistency is achieved. This takes about 2 minutes. Then transfer the oat flour to an airtight container and store it in the pantry, fridge, or freezer (depending on how quickly you anticipate using it).

If you require gluten-free oat flour, be sure to purchase rolled oats that are labelled gluten-free, in order to ensure no cross contamination with gluten has occurred.

Once you’ve whipped up a batch of oat flour, you can get started trying out some of these delicious oat flour recipes for cakes, muffins, cookies, and savory dishes.
