Fresh is key. Enjoy a taste of oat flakes
heaven with Wolfgang’s muesli or search “Bircher Muesli” on Youtube for awesome
snack recipes. Good ‘ol granola and hot oatmeal cereal can’t be beat with
freshly flaked oats. Try oatmeal raisin cookies and oatmeal muffins made from
your own rolled oats. Need more ideas? – check out 50 Things to Make with Oats from the Food Network.
Flakers are commonly used for turning oat groats
into oat flakes, but most varieties of wheat can also be flaked. See below for
what can and can’t be flaked or ground. Very useful info: Oat groats are
naturally soft and flake nicely as they come. Other grains may be prone to
crumbling without a little help. Do this before flaking – put the quantity of
oats or grain you want to flake into a zip-lock bag with a little water in the
ratio of 1 teaspoon per cup of grain, seal the bag and shake it up to disperse
the water. Then let it sit for a few hours to overnight. The added moisture
softens the grain just enough to produce a nicer flake. Even your oats will
turn out better. Resist the temptation to add more water than suggested. Too
moist and the grain might clog the metal flaking wheels.
What ingredients can be flaked?
Almost all types of grain: oats, spelt, rye, einkorn, emmer. All wheat
Rice and millet can be crushed, but are more likely to be powdered (as they are
So-called pseudo-cereals such as buckwheat and quinoa

Incidentally, it is very important to crush flaxseed before consumption, as
only then can the body process the valuable nutrients (e.g. omega-3 fatty
acids). The flaxseed husk is simply too hard for the digestive system to break
it down on its own.
And which ones CANNOT be flaked?
Corn (too big), pumpkin seeds (too big), nuts like almonds, peanuts, cashews
(too oily), coffee, legumes (too big).
