In the Kitchen: How to Make Oat Flour

This is really easy and now I never buy oat flour from the store.  I use it to make muffins mostly.

It's so easy, I'm letting my 5 year old daughter make it.

First we wanted to see how the food processor did with grinding it into a soft meal.
It did okay, but it wasn't as fine as I like it.

So I brought out the Magic Bullet and 

we zipped 1 cup of oats 

which turned into 3/4 cup oat flour.

We keep it in an old yogurt container in the fridge, just because I keep all my flours in the fridge.  

Have you tried grinding your own oat flour?  It can save you a ton of money.  Maybe not as much of a timesaver as buying it from the store, but it's cheaper and we always have oatmeal in the pantry.  These smaller canisters are regularly on sale with a coupon for $.50. 

This works for me!

I add oats to a lot of things but don't usually grind it. I'd love one of those magic bullets! Sounds like a great idea!

What a great idea, we have been wanting to make some oatmeal pancakes, and this looks like a cheap and easy way to make them. thanks for the tip!!!

I make oat flour in my coffee grinder (no Magic Bullet). Beyond baking, I use it in place of bread crumbs for meatballs (1/4 c oat flour, 2 Tbsp water, 1 lb meat) -- does not change taste and adds a bit of fiber.

Neat idea, I hardly ever use oat flour, but i know what to do now. I do grind my own almond flour, because yikes that stuff is expensive!!

I have never used oat flour. What do you make with oat flour? Great tip. I imagine I could use my food processor.

We also grind our other flours - I love the flavor of fresh ground wheat! Yummy!
