This is a list of the oat flour recipes on my blog - plus I include bonus instructions on how to make oat flour!
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.
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.

Following these simple instructions to make your own flour from oatmeal.
- 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
