We’re back with another one of my favorite pantry staples. Oat flour is an easy, inexpensive ingredient to stock your pantry with that you can actually make yourself! It’s an amazing way to make delicious baked goods gluten free and might just become your new favorite, too.
Benefits of using oat flour
- Oats have tons of health benefits. They’re a whole grain food, which means they pack vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber and are even a great source of protein.
- Because oats are fiber & protein packed, they’ll keep you feeling satisfied for longer. That means with recipes using oat flour (as opposed to white, refined flour) you’re less likely to spike your blood sugar and experience that 3pm hanger later.
- Oat flour is extremely versatile. You’ll see that I use oat flour in tons of baking recipes and even savory ones because it provides the perfect texture and holds recipes together.
How to make your own oat flour
You can easily make homemade oat flour with rolled oats by simply placing oats into a blender and blending or pulsing until they’re smooth and resemble flour. This is a super easy and affordable option.
Feel free to use regular or certified gluten free oats in order to keep your healthy oat flour recipes gluten free! Check out this video to see exactly how to make oat flour.
