Oats are considered a health food which offers excellent source of fiber. Dietary oats help lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and possibly reduce risk of heart disease. Oat flour is gluten-free and safe for gluten-intolerant folks. Oat flour can be used for baking breads, cookies and other baked goods.
Sometime it can be expensive to buy whole bag of oat flour when you only need a small amount. You can make your own oat flour from your kitchen easily and inexpensive. Most of us already have oats in our kitchen.
Here is how to do it.
- Rolled oats, old-fashioned oats, quick oats or instant oats (they are all processed oats with different cut and pressed and have the same nutritional value)
- You also need a flour sifter and food processor or coffee grinder.
