Lemon Garlic Crockpot Chicken

Have you ever had one of those days where you were tired of leftovers?

Eating the same thing day after day? Sure, we all have. It gets old after like, day 3. But what do you do, when you are short on ingredients for all of your go-to recipes? 

You fake it ’til you make it, friend. And that’s exactly what I did with this meal. With chicken being the second most widely consumed meat in the world, it came as no surprise to me that I had some chicken in the freezer. I also happened to have a few potatoes, and I scoured the freezer for a veggie and came across some green beans. Boom! Surely I could make a meal out of all of that.

Homemade Oat Flour {gluten free}

Homemade Oat Flour.

Full disclosure – I’m a little embarrassed to be making this post. Because y’all…it is SO EASY to make your own homemade oat flour. It doesn’t even warrant a full on post, if I’m being completely honest. 

But with that being said, until today, I had no clue how easy it actually was. In the grocery store, companies sell “Gluten Free Oat Flour” at a hefty price. Like, way more than what a full bag of regular Old Fashioned Oats costs. So as long as you have Old Fashioned Oats and a food processor, then you have everything you need to make your very own oat flour, in less than 90 seconds.

Talk about a money saver! 

But aside from the gluten free thing, why would you want to use oat flour in your cooking and baking? For one, oat flour helps make your baked good more moist, so it’s great for cookies and quick breads, and such. There are some things you’ll need to factor in, but nothing major. Take a look at this quick and handy guide on baking with oat flour vs. whole wheat flour. 

I recently tried this in my Fruit Pizza recipe, and couldn’t even tell a difference in the density or flavor. It was still absolutely DELISH!

So without further ado, let’s get down to the *easy* recipe, shall we?
