You will come across a lot of oat flour in my recipes. It’s one of my favorite flours to use for gluten free baking as it is nice and dense, but still soft, and lends a subtle sweetness to baked goods. I usually use it in combination with almond flour or by itself, depending on what texture I’m going for.
Because it’s a whole grain, oats are protein packed and full of fiber. If you do as much baking as I do for your family, it’s a great plus to have so much nutrition packed in.
Best part? It’s a breeze whip up in seconds in your kitchen!
Did you know you can make your own oat flour at home? It is incredibly fast and easy, requiring only one ingredient and a blender or food processor. Once I started making my own oat flour I never looked back.
