    Was just looking at that yummie multi grain bread recipe posted here. For those who mill their own flours for baking,do you just mill oats like you would wheat berries, to make oat flour...?

    Thanks Mattemma....how do you make oat milk and how do you like to us it...? The coffee grinder for making oat flour sounds good, i've made cormeal that way, but its a bit tough on the coffee grinder..!

    Yes, I have made oat flour in the past. I put it in my Kitchen aid attachment (grain mill). Just use quick or rolled oats.

    There is a really yummy oat flour pancake recipe on the back of Bob's Red Mill oat flour (where I got the idea to mill my own). I have made oat milk too- just put the flour and water in the blender.

    Sometimes I just put dry uncooked quick oats in small quantities in smoothies and milkshakes as a thickener.

    You can buy "hulless" oats that don't have a coat/husk. You plant the seeds and up comes oats that you just put in your oat roller. Labor intensive to grow your own oats, but with that variety, it works well. I have tried it. The rolled oats look just like the ones at the store.

    Regular oats are just about impossible for the homesteader to de-hull is what I have read (but haven't tried it).
