Note on Gluten-Free Oat Flour

Even though oats are naturally free of gluten, there is a high risk of cross-contaminating with wheat during the manufacturing process. This means that regular oats may contain gluten.

So if you want to make gluten-free oat flour recipes, it’s very important to use certified gluten-free oat flour. This is my favorite brand!

Certified gluten-free oats are safe for people with Celiac disease because they’re made in a separate facility. They’ve also been tested to ensure they contain less than 20 ppm gluten.

So when in doubt, look for the gluten-free label on any oat flour you buy at the grocery store! You can also make homemade oat flour in a food processor or high-speed blender, but you’ll need to buy gluten-free oats to make them.

What Is Oat Flour Best For?

Oat flour is a great alternative to regular flour, but only for certain types of recipes.

It’s perfect for brownies, cookies, muffins, and cakes, since it’s light, fluffy, neutral, and gluten-free.

However, I don’t recommend using it for yeast bread. Since it doesn’t contain gluten, it won’t give the bread the chewy texture and binding agent needed for great bread.

Can I use oat flour instead of all purpose flour?

Yes, oat flour is a healthy whole grain that can be used instead of all-purpose flour to make delicious desserts that are gluten free. Just keep in mind, it’s best to use a recipe that calls for oat flour specifically, rather than swap oat flour for all purpose flour 1:1.

What can be made from oatmeal flour?

Oatmeal flour can be used to make many delicious treats, such as chocolate chip cookies, brownies, banana cake, zucchini bread, other quick breads, and more. For best results, I don’t recommend using oat flour to make yeast bread.

How much oat flour does 1 cup of oats make?

One cup of instant oats or old-fashioned oats makes about 3/4 cup of flour. One cup of steel-cut oats makes about two cups of flour.

How do you make oat flour?

You can make your own oat flour using rolled oats, quick-cooking oats, or steel cut oats. All you need is a blender! To make, add a cup of whole oats to a blender and pulse until you get a fine powder. Store flour in an airtight container and use in your favorite oat flour recipes.
