Italian Grain Mill Makes Rolled Oats from Whole Oat Groats

240900

Here is our Marcato Marga Mulino Flaker, a little Italian grinder that we use to make rolled oats from whole oat grains (called groats). For my breakfast, I use these, plus shredded coconut, some chia seeds, cooked about 10 minutes, then add maple syrup, half-and-half, a little hemp oil for flavor. This way you get the whole grain, freshly milled. Oh yeah, I usually add a little ground-up seaweed plus salt. It’s simple and delicious and inexpensive, plus you’re getting freshly milled whole grain (including the germ and bran).

There are 3 rollers on the mill, and they can be adjusted to make flour from any grains, as well as flakes. Cost: about $125.

See The Half-Acre Homestead for details on ordering these mills.
