What is oat flour?

Simply put, ground oats. And because it’s that simple, you can make it at home! The one requirement is a food processor or blender because you’ll have to blend it.

How to make oat flour at home

Making oat flour at home is as simple as placing oats into your food processor or blender, and blending it up into a powder! For a long time I was using a food processor, which works great. However, I’ve found it easier with my blender lately. It’s a quicker clean up, and does great! I’ve even used a mini blender for small batch blending and it works great!

How to make oat flour without a food processor

Like I said above, out don’t need a food processor. I use this high speed blender, which works really well.

To make it place 2 cups of oats in the blender and blend on high until the oats are ground into a fine powder. Store in a sealed container.

Here’s a video showing how to make it in the blender.

Best tips to consider

If you want really fine oat flour, blend in smaller batches. I did a big batch in the video. This created a medium-fine version. If you’re looking for super fine flour, only blend 2 cups of oats at a time.

When you blend peanuts it eventually turns into peanut butter if you blend for a long time. This doesn’t happen with oats. You can blend as long as you want, because it will just continue to turn it into fine flour. So blend until the flour is at the consistency you want!

Oat flour FAQ

  • Oat flour is gluten free (as long as you use certified gluten free oats)
  • You can use any type of oats to make it. Using steel cut oats will just require you to blend a bit longer since it’s a harder grain than quick or old fashioned oats.
  • Oat flour will give you a more tense texture if it’s the only flour used. I like to use it in combination with another flour, like almond flour to lighten up baked goods.
  • 2 cups of rolled oats will leave you with just a bit less than 2 cups of oat flour. So if you’re needing 2 cups for a recipe, just know you’ll need to blend a bit more than that.

What to use it for

This is the fun part – using your homemade flour. Here are some favorite recipes that use it.
