Trouble Baking with Gluten Allergies? 

No problem! – Oat flour recipes that retain flavour, moisture and texture 

We all love baked treats, but some of us have those annoying gluten allergies that stand between us and those culinary delights. 

I understand, and today, I have a solution for you. I will be giving you the top five gluten-free oat flour recipes that retain flavour, moisture, and texture.

But before that, I have had a few of you ask me, Granny, how do I know I have gluten intolerance? So to answer you and many others out there, here are a few symptoms of gluten intolerance:

Constipation and Diarrhea

These two symptoms may also be accompanied by smelly feces, especially if you have severe gluten intolerance. While we occasionally get constipation and diarrhea, if you often get them when you have eaten baked goods, then you may have gluten intolerance.

Stomach Pain

We also get abdominal pain occasionally and it may be due to various causes. However, it is also one of the major symptoms of gluten allergies.

Fatigue, Headaches, and Migraines

If you persistently have feelings of tiredness after consuming baked foods, gluten allergies may be the culprit. Headaches and migraines are common, but if they are regular, you may need to avoid gluten-packed foods.

Other signs and symptoms of gluten allergies include nausea, bloating, and brain fog, among others.

5 Best Oat Flour Recipes

Oat flour is among my favourite naturally gluten-free flour. My pantry never lacks oat flour; I love its texture, flavour and the fact that it is easy to use.

Over many years of baking treats, I have curated several oat flour recipes for my family and friends. Below, I let you in on my best recipes for you to try today:

Apple-Banana Bread

I just had to start with this vegan delight. I have baked it multiple times and I am sure your gluten intolerant mouth will love it. This bread is moist, fluffy, and filling. It is also wholesome and healthy and yes, so delicious.
