Instead of going to the store to buy flour, you can make it healthier in your own home! Learn how to make homemade flour in just 3SIMPLE steps!
This 3 step process can be adapted to make any of the following flours:
Whole Wheat Flour
Any grain flour
Is Store Bought Flour Unhealthy?
Have you ever heard of Bromate? How about Azodicarbonamide? L-Cysteine? Surely you know of Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate?
If you have heard of these, you may be a food scientist or dietician. Most people, myself included, have absolutely NO idea what those chemicals are, or that they are hiding in our flours! YIKES!
These are just a few of the additives found in most flours you pop in your cart at the grocery store.
Is Making Homemade Flour Healthier?
Making flour at home is secretly healthy! As I said before, most flours you buy at the store have preservatives and chemicals in them to keep them more “shelf-stable.” When we create flour, we don’t have to worry about any of those chemicals going into our bodies! HOORAY!
Step 2. Pour grain in high-speed blender or food processor.
The Vitamix blender creates the absolute perfect homemade flour. Its high speed power creates the best finely ground flour texture in seconds! I know a Vitamix can be quite pricey, but trust me it’s so worth it in the long run if you plan to grind your own grains.
You can use any of these kitchen tools to make flour
Step 3. Blend on high speed until grains are a flour consistency (about 2 minutes)
Grind the grains in your blender, food processor, or coffee grinder until they are a consistent fine texture. You may need to stop your blender to scrape down the sides so that all grains are ground up. No one likes have ground flour!
How to Store Homemade Flour?
