If you’re a healthy living blogger, odds are, you’ve had your share of run-ins with oat based recipes…from OIAJ to Overnight Oats, I usually look to Kath, the oat queen, for recommendations on how to incorporate them into breakfast and such. When I saw her love for Coach’s Oats, I knew I had to try them first-hand. Thank you, Lizzy for sending me some, so I could be a believer! 😉
You may be saying to yourself, “what’s another oatmeal company? I can find oats anywhere!” This is true, but Coach’s Oats are a wee bit different than your typical oatmeal.
See, the microwavable factor is important to me. I’m a girl on the move…constantly…so convenience is key. How do they measure up to good ole’ Quaker and other competitors?
I loved that I could use Coach’s Oats for baking the way I would any other rolled oats, but yet, the texture when I microwaved them for breakfast was thick and volumnous. The key, is that they are steel cut oats that have been cracked and toasted, thus the quicker cooking time.
When I cooked them up, they turned totally creamy. I hate that steel cut don’t get fluffy and fill up my bowl after cooking, so these were just what the doctor ordered 😉
I love products that you can order online in bulk! Since I eat oatmeal at least 3 days out of the week for breakfast, it’s important that I keep a hefty stash in my pantry….plus, then you’ll save on shipping! Coach’s also has a great looking Multi-grain Pancake Mix, along with decadent looking cookies for sale on their website! I’d be curious to see what they’re like! Make sure to check out the Coach’s Oats blog, too for some awesome recipes!
