Instead of going to the store to buy flour, you can make it healthier in your own home! Learn how to make homemade flour in just 3 SIMPLE steps!
This 3 step process can be adapted to make any of the following flours:
Is Store Bought Flour Unhealthy?
Have you ever heard of Bromate? How about Azodicarbonamide? L-Cysteine? Surely you know of Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate?
If you have heard of these, you may be a food scientist or dietician. Most people, myself included, have absolutely NO idea what those chemicals are, or that they are hiding in our flours! YIKES!
These are just a few of the additives found in most flours you pop in your cart at the grocery store.
Is Making Homemade Flour Healthier?
Making flour at home is secretly healthy! As I said before, most flours you buy at the store have preservatives and chemicals in them to keep them more shelf-stable. When we create flour, we dont have to worry about any of those chemicals going into our bodies! HOORAY!
Use these steps with oats, buckwheat kernels, whole wheat groats, quinoa or rice and get a simple homemade healthy flour to use in your recipes!
Alright no more messing around here. Lets get to flouring!
How to Make Flour Step By Step
Making homemade flour doesnt have to intimidate you. Its really quite simple. Just follow these three simple steps!
Step 1: Measure Out Your Grain
Here I made 4 cups of oat flour so I measured out 4 cups of old fashioned rolled oats (you can use any type of oats).
Step 2. Pour grain in high-speed blender or food processor.
The Vitamix blender creates the absolute perfect homemade flour. Its high speed power creates the best finely ground flour texture in seconds! I know a Vitamix can be quite pricey, but trust me its so worth it in the long run if you plan to grind your own grains.
Instead of purchasing an expensive grain mill that can only grind grains, the Vitamix has many purposes! Such as making blended beverages (like a matcha latte or superfood hot chocolate), creating the perfect thick smoothie bowl, and so much more!
You can use any of these kitchen tools to make flour
Step 3. Blend on high speed until grains are a flour consistency (about 2 minutes)
Grind the grains in your blender, food processor, or coffee grinder until they are a consistent fine texture. You may need to stop your blender to scrape down the sides so that all grains are ground up. No one likes have ground flour!
Grind your grains!
How to Store Homemade Flour?
The beautiful thing about homemade flour is its shelf life. You can store homemade flour in an airtight container for up to 3 months!
