1 cup + 2 tablespoons (110 g) old fashioned rolled oats (certified gluten free, if necessary)
Simple food processor for quick oats
Simple blender for oat flour
To make quick oats, place the rolled oats in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Cover and pulse the oats quickly two times, then shake the bowl back and forth to redistribute the oats. Pulse again twice more, shake the bowl again, and inspect the oats to determine if they need to be pulsed again. Transfer to a container with a tight-fitting lid, cover, and place in a cool, dry pantry until ready to use.
To make oat flour, place the rolled oats in the canister of your blender. Cover, and blend the oats until the oats turn to a powder (about 45 seconds). Continue blending until the grains of oat flour begin to fall off in clumps (about another 30 seconds). If you’re concerned about any oat pieces, sift the flour. Transfer to a container with a tight-fitting lid, cover, and place in a cool, dry pantry until ready to use.
