How to Make Oat Flour

how to make oat flour

Have you ever used oat flour in your recipes? It’s perfect for making everything from muffins to pancakes, crepes and waffles, cookies to brownies, breads, and more. Plus, oat flour is gluten-free, particularly affordable, and easy to make in 30 seconds or less.

When I’m at my local health food store I always stock up on bulk nuts, seeds, wheat berries, and rolled oats—all organic and all reasonably priced. I paid only $0.98 per pound for organic certified gluten-free rolled oats! With a bit of preparation and research, eating healthy doesn't have to break the bank.

A couple of years ago I began eliminating white flour, white sugar, and processed foods from my diet, substituting them with more nutritious ingredients to improve the way I feel. Over the course of a couple of years, with hard work and dedication, I was able to lose over 40 lbs! If you want to embark on your own health journey, making your own oat flour is a great place to start.

    Hi Amy,
    You can use oat flour in place of wheat flour; however, you may need to add a bit more oat flour than, depending on the recipe. You can use this grinding grains guide to help you out as well.

    Do you use the oat flour the same as wheat flour, i.e., 1 c wheat flour = 1 cup ground oat flour?
