Can I use all-purpose flour instead of oatmeal flour?
While you can use regular flour in place of the oat flour, the cookies won’t have the same taste or texture. If you want to make the substitution, the ratio is 1 cup of regular white flour for 1⅓ cups of oat flour. Oat flour is the same as oatmeal flour and can be purchased at the store or you can make your own. To make your own, measure oatmeal into your food processor or blender and blender until it turns into flour. 1 cup of oats will yield about ¾ cup oat flour.
