Updated: Sep 11, 2020

Oats are whole grains, it is complex carbohydrates that means it is packed with soluble fiber, thus takes longer to digest as compared to simple starches. Did you know that rolled oats are easiest to digest as compared to other forms of oats!

"Oats are particularly rich in a kind of soluble fiber called beta-glucan, which has been shown to increase satiety and be a useful addition to foods for controlling blood sugars. Oat flour offers a little more iron and calcium than whole wheat flour."

Grinding your own oat flour is very simple if you've ever considered it before but never got to it, give it a try! All you need is some plain quick oats and a coffee grinder or high-speed blender/food processor. It stores well in the pantry for months. It's such a versatile flour, most times in any recipe, it's easy to replace half of any other flour with oat flour. Home-made oat flour can be stored well just like oats.
