Oat Flour Biscuits


When you need a biscuit that doesn’t weigh you down, this is the recipe for you!

Oh biscuits.

Biscuits are fluffy, delicious, and perfect to use for breakfast sandwiches, on top of chicken pot pie, or just with some butter and jam! 

However, using all purpose white flour, while perfect for biscuits, isn’t always an option for all people; especially if you need a gluten free option.

Lately I have been playing around with different types of flours like cassava flour, spelt flour, and oat flour. 

I had read over and over that oat flour creates a fluffy baked good, and the time was now to try it out! 

The result of these biscuits were slightly nutty, fluffy, and soft. Crumbly, but not in a bad way – more like crumbly in a way that when the egg yolk breaks in your breakfast sandwich, you have the perfect mechanism for soaking the yolk up. IYKYK.

So why oat flour?

  • Higher in fiber than AP white flour
  • Decent protein
  • Gluten free for those who need a GF option

For oat flour, just know it is not a cup:cup ration to AP flour; oat flour is lighter and less dense so you’ll need more of it- make sure to weigh oat flour for the best results.
