How to make oat flour:

Real way: obtain whole oat grains, ideally by going into an organic field with a sickle, while singing Kumbaya. Grind them in a mill.

Lazy/easy way: Put oatmeal (dry, uncooked, plain, old-fashioned or quick) in your blender. Turn it on. Watch it turn into powder, which you now name “oat flour.”

Seems too simple to be right, but for most purposes, it will work just fine.

You’re welcome.

    You could probably run them through your grain mill, yes?

      Actually, regular oats have a tough time feeding down through many types of regular mills. Your mill may work just fine, though.

    I’ve used whole groats that I ground up and the thing I was making ended up tasting like soap. I have made the same thing many times without whole groats, so I think it was the groats that caused the problem. I soaked some groats afterward to see if I could get rid of the taste and it did the trick. So my question is: Do you know if whole oat groats contain saponins?

    I’ve done some reading on the oat question and have found answers to the question I just posted. Thanks anyway.
