I was also wondering whether it would be possible to grind porridge oats into powder form in a coffee grinder - could a cup of this serve the same purpose as a cup of flour for baking a cake? (adding baking powder of course)

thank you in advance!

I see! Gluten glues it together, so to speak. Couldn’t I add something to the cake that would provide the gluing quality, for instance eggs?

You could perhaps use a little Xanthan Gum, which is often used in gluten-free baking.

But eggs wouldn’t work?
