Does anyone have a link or know where I can buy oat bran flour?
I’m starting my detox tomorrow which I’ll do for one week, but would like to have everything ready to go for the diet. I have coconut flour, but couldn’t find oat bran flour at whole foods or on the bob’s red mill site.April 16, 2012 at 2:19 pm #79116

Red Bobs Mill Oat Bran Hot Cereal
You can buy this at whole foods, it isn’t a flour but just a very fine textured oat bran similar to flour. When you mix it Witt the other ingredients you cannot tellApril 16, 2012 at 2:22 pm #79117
Thanks, I was looking for flour – that explains it.April 16, 2012 at 3:12 pm #79126
Similar to oatmeal (FYI)…it isn’t really a flour, but you can bake with it. If you wanted to make the coconut bread, there are other flours that are better in my opinion.

I’ve not tasted the coconut flour yet and am not familiar with “alternative” flours, but am excited about going gluten free as I think it will help improve my health.
Which flours do you like? Can you have oat bran in place of oat meal?April 16, 2012 at 4:06 pm #79135

I am interested to see everyone else response to this. I feel like I should probably expand the flours I am using.
I use Coconut Flour, Buckwheat, and Almond meal(I try to moderate how much of this I use).
I heard people like Teff.It is a test flour, so I have not tried it yet.

I just use buckwheat flour, coconut flour, teff flour and almond flour like lauren mentioned. Oat bran can be used in baking like the other flours and another possibility is using millet.
There are gluten free flours you should not have on the diet which include spelt, amaranth, and chickpea flour as well as a few others. The main reason is that they have starch or sugars.

Thanks so the info guys!
“If you wanted to make the coconut bread, there are other flours that are better in my opinion.”

I use coconut (online through tropical traditions)and blanched almond (online through honeyville farm). If you do not have Celiac, then other good ones to use is buckwheat, oat and brown rice. Try to buy organic.
Also….if you want to follow a gluten free diet, Elana’s pantry and Gluten free Goddess websites. Our family is on gluten free, due to having a daughter with Celiac so have done lots of research on who to follow.
Good luck.April 18, 2012 at 10:09 am #79325
I use the teff/buckwheat/coconut/almond flour recipe underneath the coconut bread recipe post:
It comes out very similar to regular bread. I used baking soda instead of the traditional baking powder; makes it come out a little different.
