View Full Version : grinding oat groats into flour

do people ever use a grain mill or maybe powerful blender to grind dry - hard oat groats into flour then pour warm water on the flour for a cereal type meal .

I have also thought of doing this same thing to use oat "flour" for cookies and such. So I guess this would work? I am glad you posted this because I have "steel cut oats" that are still hard (and I forget to soak them overnight!). I was thinking of putting the oats in to the grinder, and then adding warm water. I guess I thought the oats still had to be soaked. I guess they don't, what a relief. A quick, warm breakfast. Thanks, MR!

BIG OOPS! I was thinking you were TELLING us that you did this, not ASKING if we could. I sure hope someone gives "us" the thumbs up! I could use some warm "oatmeal" this morning!

I have used a coffee grinder for making oat groat or buckwheat flour. Works great! I've never made a "meal" out of it adding warm water though...it would work, I'm sure.

I'm going to give this a try! Wish me luck!
I've ground steel cut oats in my VitaMix twice....The result? Flour just like it came out of a bag!! Never made cereal, tho, just cinnamon rolls....

I just bought some oat groats yesterday, haven't used yet, but for grinding I'm going to use my coffee grinder to get flour. I am thinking cereal or even an oatmeal cookie if I don't use oatmeal instead. Right now I am dreaming Alissa's calzones as the crust is making. Then possibly eggplant parm....Alissa's book...
