Oat flour is a whole grain flour made from oats. Oat flour has a silky texture and a subtle 'oaty' flavor which I love. It is similar to wheat flour except that it contains very little gluten. It's a very healthy product, with more protein and fiber than regular flour. It's lower in carbs, too.
Not only is oat flour packed with antioxidants, it also has more protein and fat than most traditional flours, and up to 8g of fiber per half-cup serving. One half-cup serving of oat flour contains: 191% of the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) of manganese. 41% of the RDI of phosphorus.
It can also be cooked as a porridge - then it's called oat meal.
