How to Make Oat Flour

I can’t believe I was actually buying bulk oat flour from my natural food market. I would literally have to cancel baking if I had forgot to buy more at my last run to the store. All the while, I had a 25 lb. bag of oatmeal sitting in my cupboard, just waiting for me to realize, I can just blend up my oats and make my own flour at home. I felt so silly that I hadn’t thought of it before.addtext_com_MDA1MDM2Njc4OTI3

I gave it a try and, sure enough, it was a HUGE success! Needless to say, you won’t see me at the market scooping up oat flour from a bin anymore. In addition to the simplicity of homemade oat flour, you’ll be saving a lot of money too! I always buy large quantities of food where I can. At you can find large bags of organic oatmeal at a great price.

Oatmeal is gluten free and very beneficial for breastfeeding mothers. I use oatmeal everyday in one way or another.


All you’ll need is a blender and some organic old fashioned rolled oats.image

Simply pour oats into your blender, and blend. I use the highest setting and (VERY CAREFULLY) assist with a spoon. The great thing about doing this at home is, you have the power to decide the consistency of your flour. It’s fun to experiment with recipes; pancakes and muffins turn out pretty good with a less refined blend whereas, it is essential to have a fine grind for pie crust. If you are ever unsure though and don’t have time for the occasional “oops” moment, a fine grind will not let you down.

Once you’ve reached your desired consistency, store in an airtight container. I love to store food in canning jars because I know that it will seal and therefore, keep my food fresh.
