Vegan Oat Flour Recipes
Vegan Oat Flour Bread & Banana Bread
If you are gluten-free, you might struggle to find a good soft sandwich bread that isn’t overly dense. It couldn’t be easier with this oat and brown rice flour bread. It is yeast and oil-free to boot.
Have a few extra bananas in your fruit bowl? Don’t toss them in the trash when they start getting brown spots. Make this naturally sweetened and moist banana and oat bread with walnuts.
3. Lemon Loaf
When you’ve got lemons, make a lemon loaf with a sweet silky citrus glaze. This dainty loaf is excellent for breakfast or afternoon tea. I like lemon loaf with a little spread of vegan cream cheese on it.
Oatmeal banana bread is so rich and sweet, yet it has no processed sugar. Full-fat coconut milk adds richness, while bananas, chocolate chips, and pure maple syrup sweeten the bread. What a decadent way to start your day.
I know what you’re thinking, how can double chocolate bread be healthy? Make it with shredded fresh zucchini squash and high-fiber oat flour.
Vegan Oat Flour Pancakes & Waffles
These oat flour pancakes have only 4 ingredients and they are sugar-free. I bet any kid will be fooled by how healthy and light these little breakfast cakes are. Top with fresh berries and a drizzle of maple syrup.
I can’t live without blueberries, whether in season or from a bag in my freezer. If you are anything like I am, you love fluffy pancakes with colorful and sweet berries in every bite.
Cacao powder and chocolate chip pancakes are an extravagant visit to chocolate town. I love that they are sweetened with applesauce and maple syrup.
Wow! How creative to make tall, cakey pancakes with orange-flavored hot chocolate mix. This raises the bar on your typical breakfast staple.
Dust off your waffle iron because we’re making gluten-free oat waffles with a golden outer shell and light interior. You can top these toasty treats with pretty much anything to customize your breakfast.
I am not one to pass up chocolate at breakfast and these waffles definitely hit that sweet spot. Deep brown cocoa powder gives the waffles a sophisticated dark color that is the perfect complement to a cup of freshly brewed coffee.
Vegan Oat Flour Muffins & Donuts
Remember when oat bran muffins were all the rage for getting fiber into your diet? Even the best efforts sometimes yielded muffins that were somewhat heavy. Oat flour is the best way to make muffins with soluble fiber that are lighter than those with bran.
Peanut butter and blueberries are a personal favorite combination that I think you will love as much as I do. You can either slather some toast with peanut butter, layer on some berries, and have a sandwich. Or, just make these incredible vegan muffins with nut butter and berries in the batter.
Oh my, carrots, raisins, and walnuts all in one muffin? Yes indeed. Like any good carrot cake, these muffins are nutritious, sweet, moist, and pleasantly chewy. Those are exactly the characteristics you want in carrot cake muffins.
Donuts are almost always reserved for a weekend treat. Traditional donuts are yeast-risen, fried sweet treats. Cake-like chocolate donuts are leavened with baking powder and are baked for a healthier spin. Pink raspberry glaze is the cherry on top.
Do you get a little excited around Halloween when you can buy peanut butter cups for the trick-or-treaters? Of course, you will eat some! You can have chocolate peanut butter donuts any time of year that taste like candy but are so much better – for real.
17. Blueberry Donuts
Honestly, I have never had a blueberry donut, but I will be making these the next time I have weekend guests. I know the kitchen will smell amazingly of oats, cinnamon, and berries.
If you are an avid gym goer or maybe a weekend walker, these oatmeal donuts with raspberries will replenish your energy and electrolytes after a workout. The batter is sweetened with bananas which are a good source of beneficial vitamins and minerals. The raspberries are a vitamin C bonus.
Vegan Oat Flour Cakes & Brownies
Chocolate cake is appropriate for any celebration. I love that this is a triple-layer cake with buttercream frosting between the layers and all over the top and sides. It is truly indulgent and a bit of a show-stopper.
Vanilla oat flour cake is off the rails. It is basically made with overnight oats soaked in vegan yogurt, which I make a couple of times a week and love the creamy texture of. I never thought to bake with that moist and silky goodness. The cake is abundantly frosted with chocolate whipped cream.
21. Pear Cake
Get to your local orchard in early fall when pears are hitting their peak for harvesting. You need fresh, ripe fruit for this understated cake. It is unassuming in appearance, yet fruit and spice-forward in flavor.
What makes these oat flour brownies so fudgy is the creamy almond butter that is added to the 6-ingredient batter. Of course, the 2 types of chocolate are keys to the richness.
Vegan Oat Flour Cookies
I am not kidding you when I say these cookies have only 3 ingredients! You really have no excuse for not making cookies from scratch when they are this easy and ready to eat in about 20 minutes.
Need a serious chocolate fix? Try vegan double chocolate chip cookies. These cookies are naturally lower in fat because the batter doesn’t have any butter or oil.
The winter holidays wouldn’t be complete without simple sugar cookies that are cut into festive shapes and iced or dotted with sprinkles. These are made with oat flour and coconut butter to keep them plant-based.
Are you a soft or crispy cookie person? You can have both with these chocolate chip oat cookies that are tender in the center with crunchy edges.
I’m not sure you can have oatmeal without cinnamon. Am I right? Oatmeal cookies need cinnamon too. But these get really spicy (not hot) with nutmeg added to the mix.
Brilliant! Peanut butter and jelly cookies are just that. These healthy treats have fruit jelly, fresh berries, and chunky peanut butter. They are sweet and toothsome.
29. Anzac Biscuits
If you aren’t familiar, Anzac biscuits are thin oat flour sweet cookies popular down under. Anzac is an acronym for Australia New Zealand Army Corps because wives made the biscuits for their husbands serving on the front lines. This recipe is a healthy and delicious version.
Vegan Oat Flour Cinamon Roll & Scone
It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day to treat your sweetheart to confections. This cinnamon roll recipe is perfect for two and is a loving way to start your weekend off.
31. Oat Flour Scones
The trademark of a good scone is the way it crumbles when you bite into it. Not too sweet and not too dry, oat flour scones are just right for an afternoon break with a cup of hot tea.
Vegan Oat Flour Pizza Dough
Oat flour has never been on my radar for pizza dough, but it is now. What a great way to get some whole grains and fiber into your pizza crust. And it is completely gluten-free.

Oat flour can be used in a variety of recipes including pancakes, waffles, homemade granola bars, energy bites, or as a crumble topping for fruit crips and muffins. It’s best used blended with other flours, in no-bake recipes, and dense baked goods since it is not as light and fluffy as other types of flour.
You can use oat flour instead of all-purpose flour in some recipes, but the end result may not be the same since it does not contain the same properties or gluten like all-purpose flour. Try mixing it in with all-purpose flour or experimenting with different blends and leavening agents.
Yes, oat flour is healthy on its own because it is made from 100% blended whole grain oats. However, if it is used in cake, cookie, and other pastry recipes, the recipe it’s used in may not be healthy if it contains lots of sugar or oils. The whole grain taste and texture of oat flour means it’s most likely to be used in healthier baked goods.
Oat flour will rise somewhat with baking powder, but not as well as all-purpose or other types of baking flour. You may need to add extra baking powder to your recipe or try a different leavening agent like baking soda and vinegar. Generally, oat flour is best used in recipes that don’t need to rise, or need a dense and chewy texture.
If you are measuring your flour by weight, you can swap all-purpose flour for the same amount of oat flour. If you are measuring by volume, you’ll need to use a bit more oat flour than all-purpose flour because the all-purpose flour will rise more. You’ll need approximately 1 ⅓ cups oat flour to replace 1 cup all-purpose flour.
