Have You Heard of Oat Flour?

As a couponer, I get a lot of oatmeal. I can usually get a big thing of instant (maybe it’s not…) Quaker Oats for under $1. I like oatmeal in cookies, but I’m definitely not an oatmeal eater, so needless to say, I accidentally hold onto a lot of oatmeal.

Today, this has changed. I had a hankering for something with pumpkin and chocolate (my favorite combination). So I searched and searched and searched for something that sounded good. That’s when I found this recipe on Ambitious Kitchen.

It called for oat flour. What is oat flour? Oat flour is the magic that happens when you blend oatmeal. It’s pretty simple.

The bars were beautifully fluffy. Way fluffier than regular flour. I can’t wait to use it in my waffles!
