Many gluten-free, healthy recipes we see on web use Oat Flour as base or main ingredient. And making oat flour at home is very easy and can guarantee freshness. All you need are Rolled Oats, a blender and 3 mins of time!

Types of Oats to use:

  • Rolled Oats or Old-fashioned Oats : I use rolled oats for all of my recipes and for this Oat Flour too. They are lightly processed and great in Oats porridge too. If you have rolled oats at home, highly recommend to use them.
  • Steel Cut Oats : less processed and has high fiber content over rolled oats. Can use to make oat flour but may require a bit more time to blend to smooth flour.
  • Instant Oats : more processed compared to rolled and steel-cut oats but still has sufficient nutrient content. Can use to make oat flour too!
