Learn how to make your own millet flour at home! It’s super easy, ready in minutes, and comes out finely ground, making it perfect for baked goods and breads. All your need to make homemade millet flour is hulled millet, a high-speed blender, and a sieve (no special equipment required)! Totally gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan too.




  1. Place Millet in Blender: Place 1 cup of the millet in the bowl of your high-speed blender.
  2. First Round Processing: Blend millet on high speed for 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides and blend for another 30 seconds, and repeat a couple of times until you get a fine flour.
  3. Sift: Sift the ground millet through a fine-mesh sieve to filter out any larger pieces that were not ground fine enough to pass through the sieve.
  4. Second Round Processing: Return the larger pieces to the blender and blend again until they are finely ground. Sift through a fine mesh sieve to the get rid of any large pieces.
  5. Repeat: Repeat with the rest of the millet.
  6. Store: Store the finely ground millet flour in an airtight container for use.


Millet: I prefer to use hulled millet (which is how millet is usually sold) as millet tends to have a hard, indigestible husk. Hulled millet will also be easily to grind, as opposed to pearled (unhulled millet).

Process in Small Batches: It is best to grind and sift the millet in small batches so as not to overwork the motor of your high-speed blender.

Make Sure to Sift the Flour: To ensure that you get the finest texture possible, I highly recommend using a fine-mesh sieve sifting the homemade millet flour after you process it (it would be best to sift it at least 2 times if possible). This helps you achieve the best results, and gets rid of any unwanted grainy texture.

Storing: Place the millet flour in an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 3 months.
