How to Grind Your Own Oat Flour

Natalie Hodson

Yesterday I had just finished up with 12 minutes of level 12.0 sprints on the treadmill (which explains the red face and sweaty hair – sorry!) and came home to make a protein shake.  I needed to blend up some more oat flour and made a quick video showing you how I do it.  I use oat flour in most of my breakfast bar/protein bar recipes and I also use 1/3 to 1/2 cup in my post workout shakes.

When I am going through recipes on Pinterest or in cookbooks to get recipe ideas I will also almost always sub oat flour for white or wheat flour.

I hope this is helpful!  Have you ever ground your own oat flour before?

  1. Thanks so much for sharing Natalie. I have been wanting to try to make my own for some time. I use a ton of organic arrowhead oat flour and it can get pricey. Going to make my own today! I have been following your page and eating clean for about 6 months . Loving the results! I have learned soooo much about clean eating from you and Jamie. Just wanted to say thanks for all your tips and advice. Love your new website!!!

      • Natali thanks for the video. I have a question. I buy oat groat bulk, non processed and then just get the flour out of them. Can i use this flour in my shakes or should i leave in water, dry and then grind the bulk oat groats?

        P.S. the flour that i produce is excatly the same as any flour but my concern is whether it hurts the stomach or not. Thanks in advance

  2. Why oat flour? is it that much better for you then whole wheat or quinoa flour? How many calories are in a cup?

  3. Why do you use it in your PWO shakes? I thought fast digesting carbs (like fruit) were ideal. I also thought oats were low digesting. ?????
