Save money and ensure the purity of your own instant oatmeal or oat flour. Instant oatmeal requires the least amount of cooking time, but packaged products can have salt, sugar or artificial flavorings added. Old-fashioned rolled oats are not nearly as convenient, and they require a longer time to cook. With a coffee grinder, blender or food processor, you can turn old-fashioned rolled oats into your own instant oatmeal or oat flour
1 cup of whole berries yields approximately 1 1/4 cups of freshly ground flour. Freshly ground flour contains all parts of the berry, including the fat. Store any unused flour in a sealed container, in the freezer, for up to 30 days to prevent the flour from going rancid.
