I have had SO many people recommend oat flour to me, and when I tell them I make my own, they are shocked! I feel like this is one of the best kept secrets, and it needs to be shared immediately.
Oat flour may appear relatively cheap in the store (when compared to other pricey products like almond meal or quinoa flour), but don’t be fooled! You can make your own at home for a fraction of the cost.
Take the oatmeal you already own.
Dump it in a blender.
Grind it until it turns to a coarse flour.
Store in an empty PB2 container because you obviously go through one of them a week and have a million lying around your kitchen. Right?
Done. Easy, right? You’re welcome.

What you'll need:
- quick or rolled oats (I use Country Choice Organic)
How to make it:
- Grind in a blender until it forms a coarse flour.
- Use immediately or store in a sealed container.
Now, what do you use it for?
- I use them in place of breadcrumbs (as long as the desired result isn’t “crunch”).
- I use it as a thickening agent instead of cornstarch.
- I sometimes use it in place of regular flour.
- Make oatcakes.
- Add it to oatmeal if you accidentally make it too soupy.
- Make oatmeal that has a consistency akin to Cream of Wheat.
- Make oatmeal muffins.
