Help, I don’t have applesauce and/or yogurt on hand!

If you don’t have applesauce or yogurt on hand, you can try using mashed banana or pumpkin puree. Or you can simply use more applesauce or yogurt if you have one, but not the other. I haven’t made this recipe with any of those substitutes, but they should work!

How do I make homemade oat flour?

To make homemade oat flour simply blend gluten free quick, old fashioned, or rolled oats in a high speed blender (or process them in a food processor). Blend/process until a flour consistency is reached. Check out this video if you want to see how I make my own oat flour!
