Note:  

The Oat Fiber is really important in this recipe!  I use it in so many recipes, because of the amazing texture it gives whatever I am baking!  It is hands down, the best ingredient I’ve baked with and is really worth buying.  I use Lifesource Foods Oat Fiber 500 because they grind it to a very fine powder and has a mild flavor. I buy it in the 16 ounce bag here.  The bag lasts a while, because you don’t need to use much in your recipes.

Oat Fiber, is not the same as Oat Flour, which is made from grinding oats.  Oat Fiber is made from grinding the outside husks of oats and is pure insoluble fiber.  Insoluble fibers do not dissolve in water and are not broken down in the digestive tract. So it’s low carb and Keto friendly!

These are just some of the great recipes you can make using Oat Fiber:

Lemon Meringue Cupcakes

Blueberry Lemon Muffins

Pumpkin Cupcakes

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gingerbread Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting 

Cheddar Jalapeño “Cornbread”

Lemon Poppy Mini Bundt Cakes

Rosemary and Kalamata Olive Focaccia

Cinnamon Roll Waffles with Cream Cheese Icing

Lemon Cupcakes with Creamy Lemon Frosting

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes

Pumpkin Donuts

Cranberry Sauce and Walnut Muffins

Tiramisu Pancakes

Recipe Notes

The Oat Fiber is really important in this recipe!  I use it in so many recipes, because of the amazing texture it gives whatever I am baking!  It is hands down, the best ingredient I've baked with and is really worth buying.  I use Lifesource Foods Oat Fiber 500 because they grind it to a very fine powder and has a mild flavor. I buy it in the 16 ounce bag on Amazon (link in recipe).  The bag lasts a while, because you don't need to use much in your recipes.

Oat Fiber, is not the same as Oat Flour, which is made from grinding oats.  Oat Fiber is made from grinding the outside husks of oats and is pure insoluble fiber.  Insoluble fibers do not dissolve in water and are not broken down in the digestive tract. So it's low carb and Keto friendly!

O Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you; I will praise your name, for you have done wonderful things, plans formed of old, faithful and sure.
