All you need is a spice grinder or even coffee grinder to make oat flour for your recipes. I use my spice grinder to grind oat flour fresh and flavorful as needed for the recipe. No storing it and letting it go bad.. Do you know what’s better here? If you don’t have oatmeal or a spice grinder, no worries. Just use some quick oats or porridge oats whole. The texture will still be great and perfect.

Another excellent, healthy way of using the old ripe bananas deliciously.
