I really enjoy knowing where my food comes from and if I can, I will make as many basic ingredients at home as I can. I do this partially out of love, but also because it’s usually cheaper. A 500 gram bag of organic oat flour can run about $8 at the store. Doing it myself costs me about $1.
So – as I promised at the bottom of the Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal Muffins recipe – here is my simple method of making oat flour at home.
Homemade Oat Flour
500g (1lb) large flake oats
Put the oats into a large well dried blender. Pulse the oats until they reach your desired consistency. (I tend to leave them with a few larger bits, about the size of the bran bits in whole wheat flour).
Store in an airtight container.
