How to Make Your Own Oat Flour
Like to cook healthy food at home? Then you might use one of my favorite ingredients – oat flour. Oat flour is great because it is a hearty, whole-grain flour. It blows away typical white flour when it comes to health benefits. (Oats contain soluble fiber which has been shown to reduce bad cholesterol and improve heart health, which is why Cheerios are promoted as good for your heart.)
Oat flour also makes a great substitute for whole wheat flour, especially if you are allergic to wheat! Or you can mix oat flour and wheat flour together for a healthy combo!
Whatever you do, you can easily make your own oat flour at home! Here’s how:
- Rolled oats
This is a very simple process:
1. Dump some rolled oats in the blender.
Then just keep blending until the oats have turned into powder, and ta-da! You now have oat flour!
That was extremely simple and easy, and there you have a healthy, 100% whole grain oat flour.
(Aside from cooking bread and making your own energy bars, it could even be formed into a paste to soothe a sunburn!)
