These are not just any oats! Literally, these oats are different from any you have had before. So many people don’t eat oatmeal because of the texture but I challenge them to try Coach’s Oats. In search of an oatmeal that was not soggy or had a pasty consistency they decided to make their own starting at the beginning with whole grain oats then using their own patented processes to make it fantastic. I tried the original Coach’s Oats: COACH'S OATS are prepared in an entirely new way. The groats are toasted to bring the natural sugars to the surface of the oat, then cracked into small pieces. This patented Cracked n' Toasted™ process means that Coach's Oats are never mushy, always naturally delicious and cook in just five minutes on a stovetop or in the microwave. I always choose to cook my oats on the stovetop because I love them cooking while I am getting ready in the morning and it is so simple. These oats were very different in my opinion—they stayed hearty and had a great chewy texture—I could actually distinguish the oats from my mixture ( I add egg whites, cocoa powder or cinnamon etc ). Their process also gave the oats a unique nutty taste to them that I fell in love with. These oats would also be great for baking recipes. I always eat my oats sweet but recently read about people eating oats as a savory side dish or baked into casseroles. I will have to give this a shot since oatmeal is by far my favorite grain.
