Rachel’s Tips: 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 equals 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.
