Coach’s Oats: Good and Good For You!

coachs_oats_n_tn2.jpg I like hot cereal anytime, but I especially like oatmeal. I’ve tried several of the more gourmet varieties, including the coarse Irish kind that usually requires 30 minutes of cooking and tends to get rancid easily–as well as almost all the common brands.

Recently I bought some Coach’s 100% Whole Grain Oats, and it is absolutely my favorite.  I can cook one serving in the microwave in about 3-5 minutes, and have a hearty, healthy meal any time. What I really like about it is the nutty taste, combined with more texture than some gooey oatmeal has. (It also makes a great oatmeal cookie, if you can deal with the calories, sugar and butter.)

 Coach’s can be purchased online. I bought mine at one of the large discount stores, but I don’t recall which one, so I’ll probably order it next time. I know I’ll buy more, because I don’t want to run out of this healthy and delicious cereal.

  1. I like Coach’s too. Try adding almonds and/or raisins to it sometime. I see you use the microwave, which I won’t do because I’m an old geezer. Cook it on the stove and you will notice the difference in the texture and taste. It needs the cooking to really get good or at least thats my humble opinion. I have a microwave but I only heat coffee in it.

  2. I will try it cooked on the stove. I like to cook, so I don’t just use a microwave. But it’s certainly handy! Thanks for the comment and the tips for adding other good things, almonds especially. I also love a bit of brown sugar in it. Gives it a very rich taste!

    My mother ate oatmeal with butter, but as good as that sounds, that would defeat my purpose. I try to limit the sugar and milk and other calories and just eat the oats!
