Oat flour, made from ground oats, is a healthy substitute for wheat flour for those who are intolerant to wheat. You can use it in all sorts of recipes including pancakes, waffles, muffins, or for crumbing or binding.
Oats are wholegrains, which means they are packed with beneficial nutrients including antioxidants, dietary fibre, health fats, carbs, vitamins and minerals. They helps improve gut health and regulate bowel movement. Oats also reduce risk of heart attack, stabilize blood sugar levels, reduce cholesterol, and have anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine properties!
Oat flour is not a 1 for 1 substitute for all-purpose flour - oat flour is lighter than all-purpose flour, so your best bet would be to use a scale instead of measuring cups. Oat flour lacks the gluten that makes baked goods light and airy, so look for recipes that call for eggs or flaxseed to help provide structure. Try using oat flour to bake muffins, pancakes, waffles, oat bars, crumble toppings...
