How To Make Oat Flour:

You can also buy oat flour, but I prefer just making it myself. Most people have oats on hand so there is no need to go out and buy another flour. 

Making your own oat flour will also keep extend the shelf life. You can simply make it when you need it for a recipe.

Oats: I use organic rolled oats and blend them to make my own oat flour.
