Whole Oat Flour Bread

I have had lots of folks in my life looking for gluten -free options here lately and I too am wanting to move my family to a gluten free diet so, today I decided to play with oat flour...
I had been told that you could replace up to 1/3 of the flour in your recipes with oat flour but, being the "all in" kind of person that I am... I wanted to experiment...

So, here is my first attempt at a whole oat flour bread is dense & moist (yeast-free), it sliced up nicely and had a very delicious flavor! I served it with egg salad for lunch and everyone loved it...

Extremely good for a first go - Hope you enjoy it!

  1. Oat is a problem for many of us with gluten problems. Almond, Rice, Tapioca, Teff, or Coconut Flour is a better option.

  2. Lorreann, you can buy gluten-free oat flour. I have gluten problems, but haven't had problems with GF Oat Flour. You can even find it at Kroger. Hope you have success!
