I am so excited to share with you a new kitchen tool for the Traditional Foods Cook: The Flake Lovers Flaker from Mockmill. Plus, I also have a special 5% discount link from Mockmill that you can use to purchase a Flaker, Mockmill Grain Mill, or other products from their site.

This electric flaker was made by Wolfgang Mock, the creator of the electric Mockmill Grain Mill. And like the grain mill, the housing for this flaker is made from the same sustainable materials.

What Can You Do with Whole Grains?

Since whole grains have a longer shelf life than flaked grain or flour, you’ll want to set aside space in your extended or Prepper Pantry to store whole grains, such as wheat berries, oat groats, and whole einkorn.

Whole grain will last longer in your Prepper Pantry than trying to store old-fashioned rolled oats or all-purpose flour, which have a shorter shelf life.

When you’re ready to use your stored whole grains, you can make:

  • Flour
  • Flaked grain

Making Flour

If you want to make fresh flour, you can also use an electric Mockmill grain mill or a manual grain mill to create flour from your stored whole grain. And with your fresh flour, you can make bread and all kinds of delicious baked goods.

For example, I show you how to make fresh flour using my Mockmill 100 grain mill in my How to Make All Purpose Einkorn Flour video.

Making Flaked Grain

This is where the Flake Lovers Flaker device will come in handy as your new traditional foods cook tool!

With your stored whole grain, you can use this electric device to create freshly flaked grain. This device flakes whole grain literally in minutes. (Be sure to watch my Flake Lovers Flaker video to see the tool in action.)

And with your flaked grain, such as flaked oats, you can make oatmeal, bread, cookies, and more!

Why Do We Want to Flake Grain?

The shelf life of whole grain is considerably longer than:

  • Steel cut grain (as in steel cut oats), or
  • Flaked or rolled grain (as in old-fashioned rolled oats)

So the whole grains that you buy and store will stay fresh longer in your extended or Prepper Pantry than if you tried storing flour, or in the case of oats, steel cut or old-fashioned rolled oats. Using the Flake Lovers Flaker, you can make freshly flaked grain whenever you want.

The device enables you to flake:

  • Almost all types of grain
  • Rice and Millet
  • Buckwheat and Quinoa
  • Most Oilseeds
  • And More!

Home-Flaked Grain is More Nutritious

Plus, home-flaked grain is more nutritious than factory-flaked or rolled grain that goes through a heating process. At home, you are not heating your grain, which keeps the enzymes intact.

So, if you decide to use your flaked grain in a non-heated capacity, such as when making homemade muesli, you will find that the grain will be very easy to digest. This is because the live enzymes in the fresh-flaked grain help us digest our food.

The Flake Lovers Hopper

Below is a picture of the top of the Flake Lovers Flaker hopper that can hold about 2/3 of a cup of a medium-sized whole grain. After running the grain through the device, you’ll make a full and well-rounded cup of flakes.

Turning Oat Groats into Oat Flakes

Now keep in mind that I was flaking oat groats, which are a medium-sized grain. So if you flake a larger or smaller whole grain, you might be able to fit more or less in the hopper.

For example, I surmise that if you flake whole einkorn berries, which are quite small, you might be able to fit a full cup of the berries into the hopper.

Your Flake Lovers Flaker will turn your whole grain into flakes in about a minute and a half. That’s fast!

I was especially pleased with how quiet the device is. Yes, certainly you hear the motor, but it is not jarring in the least.

What Can You Do with Flaked Grains?

Most of us are familiar with old-fashioned rolled oats and how to use them. We can make oatmeal, muesli, and granola and use them in baking when making oatmeal bread and oatmeal cookies.

The good news is that you can do the same thing with any flaked grain! And that opens up a whole world of possibilities for bringing varied nutrition into your diet since each type of grain contains different nutrients.

Delicious Oatmeal Recipes

If you don’t have a flaker yet, don’t worry. In the video below, I show you how to make real oatmeal the old-fashioned way, starting with whole oat groats. I guarantee that this will be the best oatmeal you have ever had.

However, if you have a flaker or buy old-fashioned rolled oats, be sure to try baking my Pantry Oatmeal Bread. It’s easy to make and uses only simple ingredients from your pantry.

And I wouldn’t be a Texan if I didn’t share with you a recipe for how to make Cowboy Cookies that are chocked full of rolled oats!

What Whole Grain to Stock and How to Store It

If you are new to stocking whole grain, it can be overwhelming to know which grain to stock, how best to store it, and then how to grind it into flour. In the videos below, I cover all this and more!

And if you have ever wondered about the differences between the variety of wheat berries available, I’ve got you covered!

Storing Whole Grain to Protect You Against Inflation

If you store whole grains in your Prepper Pantry, you can grind your grain or flake it when you need flour or flaked grain to make baked goods and meals for you and your family over an extended period of time.

While you’re using your stored grain, you’re protected from the rising prices of factory-made flour or flaked grain that may be going up because of inflation, disruptions to the supply chain, or other factors that are out of your control.

If you’re looking for other food bargains, I show you some cheap foods you should buy now for your Four Corners Pantry in the following videos.

How to Create a Prepper Pantry

I talk a lot about storing food, such as whole grains, in your Prepper Pantry. However, if you haven’t had a chance to start your Prepper Pantry, the following videos show you how to get started and how to identify the real foods you should be stocking.

Setting aside $5 a week to build your Prepper Pantry works well over time. However, if you need to build your Prepper Pantry faster, especially in this inflationary period, I show you how to accelerate your Prepper Pantry in the following video.

Grind Your Own Flour with the Mockmill

When it comes to electric grain mills, after I did A LOT of research, I decided to buy a Mockmill. And am I so happy I did! The Mockmill is a very affordable but beautifully crafted German-made mill that stone grinds grain with settings ranging from 1 to 10—fine to coarse ground grain.

And I have great news! The folks at Mockmill are very kind to offer my viewers and readers a special one-time discount on any of the grain mills that they sell.

You can see me unbox and try out the electric Mockmill 100 Grain mill in the following video.
