What is Oat Flour?

Oat flour is simply oats ground down to make a flour-like ingredient, which is often hard to find in the supermarkets. Health stores such as Buy Wholefoods Online are the best place to find oat flour and at competitive prices. Our oat flour is an invaluable bakers tool ideal, think oat and banana muffins or oatcakes served with your favourite toppings - anything you can make with regular flour can be made with oat flour, the recipe ingredients may just need altering slightly to accommodate a different flour.

You can in fact make your own oat flour at home, however you will find that the outcome will be much more coarse than the oat flour available at health food stores as it is highly ground, something you can’t easily replicate at home.

Oat Flour Benefits

The flavour of oat flour is fairly similar to that of wheat flour with a slightly sweeter taste. This makes it a great option for healthy baking as you may find that you need to use less sweetener than using wheat flour.

The wholegrain oats used in our oat flour are highly nutritious and produce the perfect flour substance. Oat flour provides more protein and healthy fats than any other flour and is far lower in carbohydrates than most other flours, which is great for a low-carb diet.

For those that try to introduce more fibre into their diet, oat flour is a great option as it contains more soluble fibre than any other flour.

There are a number of health benefits associated with consuming oat flour all of which you can easily find on the internet. These claimed benefits include lowering cholesterol, decreasing blood pressure and helping to control blood sugar levels - great news for diabetics.

Baking with Oat Flour

When it comes to baking with oat flour you may initially have issues with bakes rising. This is because oat flour doesn’t contain gluten, therefore when it comes to making bread recipes, it will be required of you to add more yeast than you would when using other flours such as plain wheat flour. It also contains more moisture than other flours so it is a good idea to adjust the amount of any other liquids required in the recipe.
