obsessions: oat flour

Before.
rolled oats
Organic rolled oats.

After
oat flour
Organic rolled oat flour.

Process in food processor for a minute or so. Substitute for about 1/3-1/2 of the flour in recipes that aren't dependent on gluten, like scones or pancakes. You may need to increase the liquid in some recipes just a bit, although it is not consistent.

I think I like oat flour also, and I have made a few loaves with organic spelt, and liked it alot.

Will there perhaps be an oatmeal scone recipe in the future? I haven't heard of them, but now I have a craving for something like that. Thanks for keeping the blog going.

Hi Darby,
Isn't it? Beth told me about this new obsession of hers the other day and I said, "I've been meaning to try that for years!" No excuses now. : )

Hi Judy,
I've been wondering about baking with spelt. Glad to hear you've had good luck with it.

Hi Bobbisox
What's funny is that I actually have a whole grain oat scone recipe I've been planning to post this week (a new version of an old recipe). It uses whole oats, but of course now I want to toss in some oat flour, too. I'll still go ahead and put up the original - hopefully in the next few days. : )

Love what you write! When I use oat flour, I find I prefer to reduce the amount of salt in a bread recipe.
