How to make your own oat flour…

I bake with oat flour often and I always make my own at home! It is so so easy and much cheaper than buying at the grocery store.

Here’s how to do it!

  1. Add oats to a blender. Preferably a high speed blender!
  2. Blend until a fine flour forms.
  3. That’s literally it … so easy!!

Tip! I love to make a big batch of oat flour every time I make it. It is a super easy process, but honestly I like to take out the blender and clean it as least often as possible. And batch making my oat flour helps with that!

How to make Pumpkin Snickerdoodles from scratch…

These simple cookies require a few key steps for ultimate deliciousness … chilling for 1 hour, rolling in cinnamon sugar, and the classic pan banging! Besides that they’re your classic make the dough, scoop, and bake scenario.

Here’s how to make them!

  1. Set the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Start by melting the butter and pumpkin together until smooth.  I recommend doing this on the stove over low heat.
  3. Next add the the sugar to the butter & pumpkin and combine evenly.  Also add the egg and vanilla extract.  Mix until smooth.
  4. Then add in the dry ingredients – oat flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.  Combine until a dough forms.
  5. Place the cookie dough in the refrigerator to chill for at least 1 hour.
  6. Make the cinnamon sugar mixture by simply combining the cinnamon and sugar evenly.
  7. Remove the dough from the fridge and roll about tablespoon sized scoops of the dough into balls.  Thoroughly coat the balls in the cinnamon sugar mixture.  Place on a greased or parchment paper lined baking tray.  Ensure there is enough room for the cookies to spread out a bit.
  8. Bake for 12 minutes.
  9. Remove from the oven and bang the pan on the counter a few times.
  10. Enjoy!
