Reinvent your breakfast with reinvented oatmeal. When Coach Lynn Rogers wanted a better oatmeal that wasn’t soggy and pasty, he went back to the basics. Starting with whole grain oats — called groats — he and his wife, Bonnie, experimented with toasting, grinding and cooking their own oatmeal. When friends tried Coach’s oatmeal, they didn’t want to go back to regular oatmeal again, and Coach’s Oats was born.
Their patented process allows Coach’s Oats to have a steel-cut texture and taste, but can cook in a fraction of the time. Coach’s Oats are great for quick, healthy breakfasts. They can be prepared in 3 to 5 minutes on the stovetop or in the microwave. What better way to start your day than with a warm, hearty bowl of oatmeal?

The contest starts at 10:00 a.m. EST today, and ends on Saturday, January 7 at 5 p.m. EST. If you need inspiration on how to top your oatmeal, check out the thousands of ways you can love oatmeal.
