Oat Flour Spaghetti


Oat no you di’unt!

Options? I believe in options, especially when they sit, steaming from a plate and covered with fresh tomato sauce and chives.

Following is a fantastic recipe for oat flour spaghetti. The recipe yields a slightly higher carbohydrate amount, but as a gluten-free and soy free substitute for your favorite noodly dish, it is well worth the effort.

Grab a fork and your favorite sauce. It’s time to make some magic.

Oat flour spaghetti

2 cups oat flour
1.5 tsp salt
2 eggs
2 Tbsp cooking oil
2-4 Tbsp water

In mixing bowl, combine oat flour and salt. Make a well in the center. Add egg and canola oil. With a fork, slowly whisk eggs and oil into the surrounding flour/salt mixture until dough is coarse and crumbly. Add 1 Tbsp at a time of water at a time, incorporating with flour. Oat flour becomes moist fairly quickly. Work dough with the heel of the hand for 3-5 minutes. Cover with inverted bowl and let rest.

To make spaghetti:

Press spaghetti through a pasta machine. Cut pasta to preferred lengths (usually 8-10”). Let rest on a towel for up to an hour.

Bring lightly salted water to a rolling boil in a 2 quart pan on the stove. Add spaghetti. Cook for 6 minutes, careful not to stir the pasta as breakage may occur. Drain and serve. Makes about 1 pound of noodles.

    I am going to make this as soon as I comment..I’ll let you know how they turned out.. Love your site, thank you for sharing..

  2. Is there a way to make the noodles without pasta machine??

    • My grandmother made pasta all of the time. She rolled the dough out then sliced it into strips. The pasta had to dry (all over the house on clean dish towels) I imagine you could use it fresh without drying first.
      Hope this helps

    I make oat noodles with an Omega juicer. The strainer is replaced with a closed piece and the noodles come out the front. Easier than the traditional pasta maker.
