You can easily make oatmeal from oatmeal. Here's how it works and we'll explain what you can use oatmeal for.
Make oatmeal yourself - step by step
- Put about 50 grams of tender oatmeal in a tall container or - if available - in a blender.
- Puree the oatmeal with a hand blender and move it up and down to prevent the oatmeal from sticking. You can mix the flakes in the blender for about 30 seconds.
- Then you should stir the oatmeal a little and puree again so that any remaining oatmeal is also crushed. Grind the grain until the flour has the desired consistency.
- Finally, you fill the oatmeal in an airtight container and store it cool and dry - or you can process it directly.
Make oatmeal manually
If you don't have a blender, you can make the oatmeal yourself, but this takes a lot longer. The following options are available:
- The oatmeal can be crushed in a mortar with a pestle.
- The flakes can be chopped with a knife, but the flour does not become particularly fine in this way.
- The oatmeal can be ground into oatmeal in a grain or coffee grinder.
Cook and bake with oatmeal
With oatmeal, you can bake bread and rolls as well as cookies or use it in porridge. If you want to replace wheat flour with oatmeal, you only need three-quarters of the original amount. In most recipes, oatmeal is mixed with other types of flour, since it does not stick particularly well and the dough otherwise becomes very tough. The taste of oatmeal is valued for its slightly nutty aroma, and it also gives baked goods a fluffy consistency.
If you want to eat particularly creamy porridge for breakfast, you should replace a quarter of the oats with oatmeal. Otherwise, prepare the porridge with milk or water as usual. The additional strength gives your oatmeal a soft consistency and will also absolutely convince you in terms of taste.
Of course, you can also use oatmeal for breading or kneading bread and pizza dough. Oat is rich in B vitamins, zinc, iron, magnesium and protein, it contains a lot of fiber, is low in fat and has cholesterol-lowering properties - enough reasons to put it on our menu more!
Is oatmeal gluten-free?
Oat is not gluten-free, but only low in gluten, because it often comes into contact with wheat or other cereals during cultivation and processing. People suffering from celiac disease should therefore only use oatmeal that is specially labeled to prevent contamination.
