How To Make Oat Flour |
Oat flour can be expensive, so I highly recommend making your own. Why buy something for convenience when its something you can make yourself, at home, with ONE kitchen appliance? Not only does it take one appliance, but it is super easy and takes little to no time or clean up at all.

I have had success using both regular oats and quick oats. I have heard that steel cut oats can be ground down, but they make for a much coarser flour, but should still work in your recipes.

To make the oat flour, add the desired amount of oats to your blender, coffee grinder, or food processor. I use a Hamilton Beach Food Processor. Works splendidly for all of my baking needs!

Pulse on HIGH until you see that the oats have become the consistency of flour. This may take some time. If your blender is not very powerful, do the pulsing in spurts. Pulse for a few moments, allow the blade to come to a rest, and stir the oats with a spoon to ensure that you’re blending down all of it.

As you can see- Viola! Oat flour! In my food processor, pulsed on high, this took around 1-2 minutes to process down.
If you have any left over that you’re not going to use in your recipe, I recommend storing it in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 1 month as it can become rancid (turn) more quickly than store bought flours.

    Hi! I just started following your instagtam about a week ago, and decided I needed to check out your blog. This may sound like a dumb question, but I am new to the whole healthier me thing, but what do you use the oat flour for?? Thanks for thw awesome blog!!!

    Hi Kaitlin!

    You can use oat flour in substitution for any flour in a recipe. Some prefer it just because its slightly lower in carbs and calories than most flours.

    Hi! Can I use ”Quick oats” (the one that cook in 2minutes) ?

    I don’t see why not. I have used Quaker Quick Oats in a pinch and they work out just fine! πŸ™‚ I am not sure about any packets of oatmeal, though!

    No, they are the same. It’s just a preference on my part! πŸ™‚


    So much thanks for your help & share your recipe . I did not know how to make oat flour at home, and also I had to buy some, but now I can have oat flour easily at home. Thank you.
