Quaker oats is not gluten free because of the high degree of contamination from the fields, transportation to processing. You must buy oats that are labeled gluten free. I've ground 'Only Oats' brand of flakes into flour with only my coffee grinder. it's hard to find some bean flours that are gluten free so those are great ones to try.

I have made chickpea (garbanzo bean flour) in my vitamix. Quaker Oat are contaminated through the harvest and or processing. Be careful. I buy (normally) Bob's Red Mill brand oats that are specifically gluten free. Another brand I bought was bitter - I don't know the difference but I stick with Bob's now.

I haven't yet, but know it's possible. I do know there are oils in them as well, so don't use grinding stones. I've ground nuts into flour using my food processor. I'd assume you can do that with beans as well. Or use the steel plates that may be available for your flour mill. I have the wondermill jr with both stone and steel plates.

FORAFITME, I like the idea.. Thanks. I hope to recieve my mill this week. I still do not know a lot about baking without Wheat. I didn't know oats would have to much oil. Oats may not work in my milll??? I just discovered my wheat problem in June 013
I have a learning curve coming... It may be awhile before I get the baked item I hope for.

KNYAGENYA, where do you get the oats? Do you use Quaker or buy it whole.

IME2BLOOM4ME, I saw a flour called Montana wheat was before GMO. I got on this track about milling my own flour and dropped it. I may see more about the Montana wheat later.

My family has a Nutrimill. I grind brown and white rice. I also do popcorn for corn flour (it would be too fine for grits but it still stays gritty for breading on fish or corn bread.)

I like it very much and am thankful I got it but it is loud. It's process is to explode the grain, however that happens,

I also make corn mill in my vitamix - not very consistent texture. But, I am sure oats could be done in that.

The nutrimill can not handle oat flour because the oat has too much oil.

Have not done that but want to look into doing that so that I know that it will not have any wheat or corn products in them,.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I have had a couple of people ask me if I can have einkorn. I've never tried it, but it's on my gluten containing grains from a celiac web site. Be careful if you try it. And let me know how it goes.

I have an electric wheat grinder called the magic mill. Its' old, but it works great.

There is an ancient wheat I found online I want to try. They say it can be tolerated by us with gluten issues. Einkhorn wheat or something like that.

If it is going to be it is up to me !!!

be careful with that attachment. I had heard there is a plastic piece in the Kitchen Aid Mixer that gets too hot and melts when using the grinding attachment. Because of that review, I went and got the wondermill junior - the manual grinder. It's great. But I am also going to get the electric one - to do the first breakdown of the grains. Then use the hand one for the finer grinding of the grains. I have ground rice so far - white, brown and sweet. I also have some millet to grind. I use ground nuts often, but grind them up in a food processor.

I am gathering information on grinding my own flour. What grains to use and tips on being successful. I am thinking about buying the grinding attachment for my Kitchenaid mixer.
