How To Make Oat Flour

Oat flour is the simplest flour to make at home, using whole rolled oats (old-fashioned oats) and your high-speed blender or food processor.

2 cups of whole rolled oats equal about a cup of oat flour, or maybe a bit more, depending on how finely you grind it.

You may have to stop your machine and move the flour around with a spoon.

Process for at least 1 minute. You want your flour to be as finely and uniformly ground as possible.

Freshly grated cheese from a block will melt the best because pre-grated cheese is coated in preservatives that interfere with the natural melting capability of cheese.

4 servings (12 fritters)

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium yellow summer squash, crookneck, or zucchini, shredded
  • 1 large carrot, shredded
  • 1 large egg, room temp
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen green peas (thawed)
  • 1/2 cup freshly shredded cheese, like mozzarella, cheddar, or Mexican blend
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • sea salt and ground pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 2 Tbsps avocado oil or olive oil for frying

Instructions:

Place the shredded zucchini and carrot in a colander. Season with a generous pinch of salt and allow the veggies to eliminate the excess moisture.

After 10 minutes, use your hands to squeeze out the liquid from the veggies, then place into a medium bowl.

Add in the egg, peas, cheese, seasonings, and oat flour.

Stir to combine really well and create a thick batter.

Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large frying pan or skillet, over medium heat.

Add a spoonful of the veggie batter, making sure you leave some space in between. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown.

Repeat with the remaining oil and batter.

Serve hot with plain Greek yogurt, no-sugar added ketchup, or homemade dip of choice such as our phenomenal Tzatziki sauce.

Enjoy!
