Oats: a common kitchen essential and breakfast legend. Whether you prepare them on the stove, add cinnamon and sugar, or get creative with overnight oat recipes, there’s no wrong way to enjoy this wholesome grain. However, some types of oats set themselves apart from pack. Here’s the down low:
Other oats: Most of us are familiar with the terms “rolled oats” and “steel cut oats,” and these are probably what you’re consuming to satisfy your oatmeal cravings. If that’s the case, you’re also familiar with a 30-45 minute cook time (steel cut oats) and bland flavors (rolled oats). Both the flavor and consistency of oats has everything to do with the way they are processed – and we think it’s time you’ve made your mornings quicker and tastier with a little help from our friends Coach’s Oats.
Coach’s Oats: Is mushy oatmeal giving you the blues? Then you haven’t tried Coach’s Oats. Using a process patented as Cracked n’ Toasted™, Coach’s Oats are prepared using a completely different process than steel cut oats or rolled oats. The groats (whole grain oats) are firstly toasted and then cracked into tiny pieces, leaving them firm and oh-so-delicious! Here’s the best part – they’re ready to eat via stove top or microwave in just 3-5 minutes!

Have you jumped on the overnight oats bandwagon? I for one love them, because I don’t necessarily love a bowl of hot oats year round. Plus sometimes I just want to shovel food in my face as quickly as possible.
Before overnight oats became so popular, I had been known to dig into my husband’s bowl of cold refrigerated oats, the ones he reheats every morning, and just spoon feed myself until full. But I am talking plain cold oats. Not the best ever.
Now the food bloggers of the world have turned overnight oats into something quite magnificent! Some of the creations are ridiculously amazing. I was pondering what unique recipe I could bring to the table (literally) when experimenting with the “Cracked n’Toasted Oats” from Coach’s Oats.
And then it came to me….banana split, baby. We’ve got the vanilla, chocolate and strawberry oats layered between banana slices, topped with more fresh bananas, strawberries, whipped cream and of course you can’t forget chopped peanuts and a cherry on top.
These overnight oat jars have a little sweet additive in each layer such as the vanilla yogurt, chocolate chips and strawberry preserves that gives them the perfect balance. If you don’t find them sweet enough to your liking, just add agave, honey, sugar or whatever you like before layering it. With time, you will get used to the less sweet flavor of oatmeal if you gradually decrease the sugar you add. Give it a try!
What I love about these oats from Coach’s Oats is that they have a hearty, nutty steel cut texture that doesn’t get that gummy texture when cooked. Plus they have all the heart healthy benefits of regular rolled oats! They can help: lower cholesterol, promote healthy arteries and control blood pressure.
This little jar is the perfect portion for one person and will give you one extra for the next day. Feel free to make as many jars as needed, the will last all week in the fridge!
Packed with heart healthy fiber, calcium and protein from the non-dairy milk and vitamins and minerals from the fruit you’ve got a perfect jar.
