Whole wheat flour vs. All purpose flour?

Posted by   + Show Post

Can I just substitute one for one?  Or do I use more whole wheat flour?

Are they different from rolled oats?


Quoting Schleetle:

I use the same, but I like oat flour better. If I don't have any I just grind up steel cut oats, it's really yummy for pancakes.




  • Steel-cut oats are the whole oat kernel, which is cut into two or three pieces using steel discs. They are a better source of fiber than rolled oats, but take longer to cook.

  • Rolled oats have the bran mostly removed and are rolled flat to make them easier to cook. With the bran removed, they have less fiber than steel-cut oats.

  • Quick-cooking and instant oats are rolled oats that have been cut into smaller pieces and rolled thinner, thus cook quickly. They are an easy source for preparing many oatmeal dishes.


When comparing the different types of oats, the steel-cut oats are definitely less processed and have a higher nutrient content. However, when we make them it can take a LONG TIME (20 minutes or more).

Quick cooking oats are still considered a whole grain and have less fiber, but not by much. They are certainly more convenient and I would consider them very healthy. The ones you want to stay away from are the individual packets that contain sugar and other flavorings.

You can. You can even mix them (like half and half.)

You must try the new "white" whole wheat. Really, it is. Now available at Walmart, it's a flour made from an albino wheat, and lighter in taste and texture than regular whole wheat. I've substituted up to a cup of whole wheat for all purpose flour.
