Hello Beautiful Soul! How is your week going so far? Are you taking lots of deep, healing breaths?

Do you know what makes me feel good and keeps me going strong all week? Eating healthy foods that nourish my body. When you nourish your body with love and good healthy food, you simultaneously nourish your soul.

I love to bake but have been consciously thinking about how fast white flour can sneak into our diet. This week I thought I would share with you a super simple way to make your own oat flour. It is extremely economical and very easy to do.

Why should you make oat flour?

1 cup (80grams) of oats has about 10 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber. By adding oat flour to some of your favorite recipes you can boost its nutritional value.

Here is how it’s done:

Baking with oat flour may require a little bit of experimenting, but that’s the fun part. As a starting point try substituting 1/3 of the flour in a recipe with oat flour.

Let me know if you come up with any recipes you like using oat flour. I’d love to hear about them!

Have a peaceful day and happy healthy baking!

With love & gratitude,
Wendy Irene
