It’s really easy to make homemade oat flour! I use this for a few recipes, cookies, pancakes, and have a hard time finding an organic, gluten-free flour, so I make my own!
It can be made using two different types of oats.
The first way: using oat flakes:
- The amount you need will depend on your needs and the recipe you are using. I make a batch of this to have on hand to use. So, I fill my blender (Vitamix) about half way and blend the oats.
- It only takes a few minutes to blend into a fine flour powder.
- Use right away or store in an airtight container.
Add the oat flakes to a high-speed blender and blend for a few minutes until it becomes flour.
The second way: using steel cut oats:
- This is the other way I have made oat flour. This method takes a few more minutes in the blender because the oats are harder and different consistency.
- Using the same method above, just fill the blender about 1/3 and let the oats blend into flour.
Tip: you may want to stop the blender periodically and shake or stir the oats to combine so they blend evenly.

- When blending you might have to stop the blender occasionally and shake it or stir the oat flour so it blends evenly.
- Store the oat flour in an airtight container or use it immediately.
- Use in any recipe that calls for oat flour.

- 2 cups oats (I like to use gluten-free, organic steel-cut or oat flakes.)
Use either steel-cut or oat flakes.
Add oats to a high-speed blender.
Blend for several minutes until you have a fine flour.
Store the oat flour in an airtight container or use it immediately in a recipe.
I use up my freshly made oat flour within a few days.
