Substitute for oat flour

I have several bread recipes that call for oat flour. I was wondering how substituting oat bran for the flour (or part of the flour) would work. Also, a lot of the recipes call for whey protein powder and I found that it makes the finished product kind of dry. Any ideas how to remedy this? Most of the recipes I have call for equal parts of vital wheat gluten and oat flour and then double that amount of whey protein powder (so it could be 1/2 C. oat flour, 1/2 C. VWG, and 1 C. whey protein). Also I don't have WPI, which I've seen a lot of people use in their bread recipes.

Hmmm, do you think using Carbquik for part of whey protein would work?

Isn't oat flour just pulverized oatmeal? Maybe blend some oats with some of the oat bran and get a more fiber rich oat flour?

I think oat bran would work fine, but I do seem to remember that the bran absorbs more liquid than the flour so it might dry out things too. I like to subs 1/2 c. almond flour for 1/2 the protein in most baked recipes to "moisten" things up. Seems to work well for me and hasn't ruined any recipe for me yet.

Using the recipe you stated of 1/2 VWG, 1/2 oat (I'd go with flour), I'd subs 1/2 almond flour to 1/2 protein powder and give it a try.

I think you'll like the results.

Just another idea to try out....HTH
