This is a light oat flour that combines well with other flours such as Spelt Flour and also those containing less gluten. Oat flour does contain lower levels of gluten than wheat flour, so may suit people who can tolerate some gluten.
The fine consistency of this flour makes for easy mixing of dough and pastry as well as adding to protein shakes.
Cakes and biscuits: Oat flour is suitable for cake-making and biscuit recipes.
Drinks: Oat flour can be used as a thickener for protein shakes and smoothies. It is ideal in energy drinks as it provides slow-release carbohydrate energy throughout the day.
Pancakes: Oat flour can be used as a direct substitute for wheat flour in pancakes.
Bread: As oats do not naturally contain gluten, oat flour must be combined with a "binding" flour in order to make bread. Common binding flours are tapioca flour, potato flour or rice flour. Of course, if you are happy to have wheat, then oat flour can be mixed with wheat flour or spelt flour to make a nice bread mix.
