**You may not find gluten free oat flour but you can find gluten free oats. To make gluten free oat flour just process oats in the food processor until fine. While regular oats are essentially gluten free sometimes it is processed in environments which are not and this is why many of brands out there do not say they are gluten free.
Taymer’s Tip: Gluten free dough can be a little difficult to work with. Remember to work light and flour the surface generously.
