I have compiled a list of 9 gluten-free oat flour recipes because it is a great flour to use for those of us that eat gluten-free foods.
If it is important to you that the flour be gluten-free because of celiacs then you need to make sure that you purchase the kind that specifically states that it is certified gluten-free. If you don’t there is a possibility that it will not be gluten-free. This is because of cross-contamination in the processing plant.
Most of the recipes that I could find were either a breakfast food or a dessert. I’m not sure why that is, but I’m not complaining since I’m always looking for new gluten-free breakfast recipes.
I do know that from my experience I always feel full longer when I eat oatmeal so maybe that is one of the reasons why there are so many breakfast foods that use oat flour. No matter the reason, I am very excited to be trying these new recipes. Please comment below if you try any of these recipes and if you liked them or not.
How to Make Oat Flour
After today’s “How To”, oat flour will be your new BFF “Best Freaking Flour” (Not a popular term, but I’m hoping it takes off!). It is used for a variety of reasons, besides the fact that it’s super healthy and oh-so-easy to make, it’s beneficial and handy to keep around the pantry.
It can be used in both sweet and savory dishes, but can also be used to make DIY face masks and scrubs! The possibilities are endless, and once you see how easy it is to make this, you’ll be super popular among your friends. You know, if your friends are impressed by you using a blender and measuring cup.Print
How to Make Oat Flour
- Rolled Oats (Or steel cut oats)
- Measuring Cup
- Air Tight Bag/Plastic Container
- Add one cup of oats to a blender.
- Blend on GRIND until you have a powdery consistency, don’t worry if it’s not all “powdery.” It takes about one minute.
- Grab your sifter and start sifting away.
- Add the large pieces left in the sifter back to the blender and grind them one more time.
- Sift it again.
- The oat flour should be fine, not course.
- You should be left with a fine, powdery residue on your hand.
- Make sure you store in a Ziploc bag or air tight container.
You can make this a much easier process if you have a coffee bean grinder. Works the same as a blender, if not better! I think a coffee grounder works better because I have tried the food processor but it didn’t work as well; there were still some pieces of oats left in the flour

1. Best Easy Gluten-Free Pumpkin Protein Bars – My Natural Family
Oat Flour – Protein Powder – Brown Sugar – Pumpkin Puree – Pecans or Walnuts – Chocolate Chips – Real Salt – Cinnamon – Allspice – Ground Ginger – Eggs – Vanilla
These are the best protein bars I’ve ever tried. The white chocolate (you can use dark chocolate if you want) drizzled on the top is the perfect touch. I make a batch quite often. I put them in bags and keep them in the refrigerator. My husband takes them to work for snacks and I like them for a quick snack.
My daughter loves them too. Who doesn’t love a healthy treat? You can freeze them too so you can make a big batch and not have to make them as often. I like to make individual bags for the freezer with just a couple in each bag. If you think you don’t like pumpkin, you should try these, you might change your mind. If you really don’t like pumpkin you can substitute ripe mashed bananas for the pumpkin.

It goes so well with ice cream! I definitely recommend you eat it hot. My daughter loves to make this cake, she makes it all the time. That’s how easy it is to make. We love to make it quite often, especially when we want to impress family or friends.

It only takes about 5 minutes to make these pancakes in the blender. Then they are topped with a creamy peanut butter syrup. Both the syrup and the pancakes have Greek yogurt in them. The yogurt helps make them healthy and makes it possible to make them really low in sugar.
I think they taste like banana bread with peanut butter on top. They are very filling and satisfying without giving you a sugar rush or making you feel sluggish and heavy. I make mine in my magic bullet which is really easy. They just might make you want to change up your current breakfast routine.
