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?

Change is a comin’!

This is a hard post for me to write.

I love bread. Probably more than Oprah, if I’m being honest. Like, so much that I am shedding a tear at what is to come.

But it must. At least for now. 

After a lot of research, and perusing through various health articles and dental health sites, I have come to the conclusion that I must make a big change in the way I eat. 

I know what you must be thinking… “Didn’t you already make this HUGE change by cutting out most processed foods from your diet?! How can you possibly do more?!” 

Well friends, I was in the same boat as you. I have been telling myself that I am crazy…trying to talk myself out of making any more changes. But then I realized something.
