As people all over the world struggle to find essentials during the COVID-19 pandemic, an American mother has revealed how to make an alternative to flour in just minutes.

Blogger and writer Laura Fuentes shared the secret on her recipe blog Momables.

She demonstrated that it takes less than a minute to turn one cup of oats into a cup of flour in a blender or food processor - and it's gluten-free.

"Get some oats, add them into the food processor, and turn it on to blend until you have a fine powder like consistency," she told viewers.

"The best part is that there's not a lot of conversion needed - if you're using one cup of oats you will get approximately one cup of oat flour.

"To store it, seal it in a zip bag or the flour will go stale pretty fast. It will last you three months in the pantry."

She revealed that it can be used to make anything from cakes to porridge to bread.

"Typically oat flour can be substituted for regular wheat or flour in a recipe in the same amount, one cup oat flour equals one cup regular wheat flour.

"This is especially true for recipes made for whole-wheat recipes, say, whole-wheat muffins etc."
