When we refer to the nutritional value of oat flour, we can also refer to the nutritional properties of the whole flake.
It provides around a 15% of vegetable protein every 100g. It is the cereal with the greatest proportion of vegetable fat, a 65% of unsaturated fats and a 35% of linoleic acid. It is rich in sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 (which are valuable micro-nutrients for sportspeople). It has a remarkable supply of fiber as well as slow release carbohydrates from starch, without sugar.
Oats are one of the vegetable foods with more amino acids content that we can find in nature.
Oats are an excellent ally for sportspeople and athletes. Specifically, it benefits those who follow a vegan or vegetarian diet, since their protein sources are scarce. Oats are one of the best sources that also has a good aminogram:
Essential Amino Acids
Non-essential Amino Acids
Low Glycemic Index
Since it is a complex carbohydrate, its digestion in the digestive tract is slower and this allows us to maintainstable levels of glucose in the blood and to have a prolonged supply of energy for several hours. This situation results in a greater feeling of satiety for a longer time, which becomes the best ally in weight-loss diets.
Oats are also an excellent source of fibre that contributes to a proper functioning of the intestines. It is rich in betaglucans which are substances that absorb the cholesterol and bile acid from the intestine, preventing harmful compounds from entering the organism.
One of the main features of Instant Oat Flour is that it can help us lose weight. This is mainly due to its high fiber content, which will increase the satiety and will help us to avoid eating between meals, which is one of the most common reasons of an ‘unconscious’ intake of calories.
Moreover, when we want to reduce the percentage of fat and maintain the muscle mass, also known as improving our Physical Composition, oats are one of the most useful foods to achieve this:
- They provide slow absorption carbohydrates in order to avoid peaks of glycemia
- They supply essential amino acids, which are key elements in order to achieve lean mass
- They provide satiety, thanks to their fiber content

However, in order to ensure a nutritional balance and to obtain the properties of the egg yolk, we can always include at least a whole egg.
How to cook Oat Pancakes and Egg Whites?
To elaborate our delicious pancakes, we will just need:
- Instant Oat Flour of our favorite flavor, or even neutral if we want to sweeten it, in which case we would add a little bit of Sucralose
- Eggs and/or Egg Whites
Put all the ingredients in a bowl, and with the help of an electric blender, mix everything until it is all well combined in a homogeneous mass. Now let’s get to cooking. It is advisable to use a non-stick pan, with a little bit of olive oil. Once it is hot, add the mix. According to the size and number of pancakes, vary the amount that you pour. This will also change the thickness of each pancake. It normally takes a minute to cook each side of the pancake.
When you see that they get ‘golden’ they will be ready to serve and eat!
Another incredible fitness recipe for those who love sweets is Oat Flour Biscuits! They are an appetizing snack to eat at any time, and it is also healthy.
