We have been wanting to bring Gluten Free Oat Flour into our product line for many years now, however, with the continued battle with the ability to label any of our products as 'gluten-free oats' due to current labelling laws. We have held off bringing in oat flour due to these same labelling laws restricting our ability to communicate - until NOW! No, we still have to call the Gloriously Free oat flour instead of gluten free oat flour for the moment.

Why add Oat Flour to your diet?
Oat Flour is a whole grain flour made from oats. It's full of flavour and nutrition. Oat Flour has a silky texture and a subtle ‚oaty flavour which we love. Our Oat Flour is a very healthy wholesome ingredient to add to your daily cooking, with more protein and fibre than wheat flour. It's lower in carbs, too. Basically, oat flour has all the nutritional benefits of oatmeal. We have started to accumulate some delicious recipes showing you how to include and substitute this oat flour into your diet.
The nutty wholesome texture had me right from the start and pairs beautifully with our Gluten Free Flour blend we use in our biscuit lines and into our online store for you. It is a blend of rice, potato & tapioca starch.
Baking with Oat Flour
This coarse ground flour can be used for many recipes that call for substitutes for wheat flour. Please note if you are looking for a fine grind, you will need to run this through a food processor or a blender with a milling attachment first.
All GF Oat Flour requires small amounts of binders, such as xanthan or guar gum, to replace the binders lost when you are using flour alternatives to wheat. These additives will stabilise your baked goods while providing rise and airiness, ensuring your end result isn't a flat, crumbly mess.
From cakes to Pancakes there are so many ways you can use oat flour in your diet. Of course, if you have a bag of GF Oats in your pantry you can follow this recipe to make your own oat flour. You can make straight oat flour, or experiment with different ratios and blends of other gluten-free flours, such as combining your oat flour with almond, rice, amaranth or teff flour, to name a few. You can adjust your ratios to alter the end nutritional stats of your favourite meals ‚ like reducing carbs while maximising protein at the same time. Playing around with ratios is what's also going to get you different rises, finishes and textures in your gluten-free baking endeavours.
Please note that in Australia we are unable to call any product that contains oats, gluten free oats or gluten free oat flour due to current labelling restrictions.
