Oat Flour

It’s so easy and inexpensive to make oat flour at home that I never buy it at the store. And it’s such a great flour to use in baked goods to add fiber, flavor, and whole grains. It’s a staple in my pantry, is super quick to make, and is a good gluten-free flour option if you or someone in your family eats GF.

TIP: I use it in baked goods like muffins, bars, and cake, but you can also use oat flour as instant oatmeal.

Can I use a food processor?

You could use a food processor to make this oat flour, but I’d recommend a blender. The food processor won’t grind your oats into as fine of a texture.

How long can I store oat flour?

You can store your oat flour in the pantry for up to a month in an airtight container, or freeze it for up to a year in a zip top freezer bag.
