Tips for making the best gluten free oat flour
Here are some of the best tips for making oat flour from gluten-free oats...
Don't blend too much
Take your time and do ½ cup of oats at a time. If you blend too many oats at once, it will become too powdery and clumpy.
Sift the oat flour
For a finer oat flour, make sure to sift the flour after blending. This will ensure that your oat flour is smooth and free of any chunks or lumps.
This step is optional, but it is super helpful!
Once you have made your oat flour, store it in an airtight container and keep it in a cool, dry place. The oat flour should last up to three months when stored properly.
If you don't seal it correctly, the oat flour can become clumpy and unusable.
