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.

  4. can you use flax to replace the eggs.. im vegan

  5. I’m making this now but can’t get the dough to come together. I’ve tried adjusting with water, oil, and more oat flour, but so far no dice. I’m going to run for some other flours (as I’m out) and see if I can make it work. Love the idea!

  6. what else can i use instead of eggs and flax seeds to bind the flour?

  7. one more question can i use quick oats to make oat flour at home for making oats noodle recipe?

  8. How would you store the uncooked pasta for later cooking?

    • Place pasta on clean towels and allow to dry. This is how my grandmother did hers. Then just store as any dried pasta. 😉
