How and Why to Make Your Own Oat Flour (It's Easier than you think)

Making Oat Flour is super easy.
Oatmeal + Blender = Oat Flour

(Aren't you glad you stopped by to read these wise words?)

Okay, but WHY.

WHY would we make our own flour?  Three reasons. 

Grounding your own flour is convenient. 
On that crazy day when you run out of flour, there is (with this fancy recipe) now an option. Use oat flour instead. Voila.

Milling your own flour is easy. 
Oatmeal + Blender = Oat Flour. That's it.  This also works for other things:
Almonds + Blender = Almond Flour (or Almond Butter if you blend too long...)
(Here's a post by AttuneFoods about other flours you can (or can not) make at home)

Milling your own flour can be cheaper. 
Buying the whole seeds and grains can be cheaper than buying the processed flour. Between buying bulk, finding sales and using coupons - and growing your own too - it can be cheaper than buying oat, almond or other 'specialty' flours.

What kinds of flour have you made? (and how?)
