Why spend money on premade oatmeal flour when you could make it at home!
Ok, why dedicate a post to oatmeal flour? Well as an at-home baker who enjoys trying recipes and creating ones that enhance health and the tastebuds, I thought I'd share one of my go-to flours. Simple and great for you.

Oatmeal is so versatile and very inexpensive to incorporate into your diet. It is rich in fiber specifically beta glucans, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals such as manganese which is beneficial to sex hormones and brain function.
One caveat when selecting your oatmeal for consumption. Glyphosate is a chemical that has been found in several brands of oatmeal and wheat products. It is a component of the herbicide Roundup. Glyphosate disrupts the gut microbiome; meaning an imbalance in the beneficial bacteria in your gut. Also, it is an endocrine disruptor; which means that it can affect how your endocrine system (hormones) functions. So before you grab your oatmeal from the store look for Glyphosate free.
Look out for a deep dive into this chemical and the effects it has on your health in a future post. Look under the category "You and your environment".
Ingredients: Oatmeal (rolled or sprouted. I use sprouted)
Put your desired amount in a food processor, Vitamix, or blender, then blend!
Store in a cool place in a sealed container. For maximum freshness, I store it in a freezer-proof container in the freezer.
Yes, these biscuits were made with oat flour. With a side of tahini. Great snack for two!
