We love hearing from our fans and especially love seeing new recipes and ways our fans utilize our oats.
It’s an aspect of social media we really appreciate. Our Instagram is full of fans sharing recipes and ideas with us. We want to highlight a few of our favorites in this post.
Let’s start things off with a fan who created a recipe that is now a craze!
She posts this recipe many times both in her story and on her page. She even has video instructions as well. The topping and add-ins are all changeable and keep these veggie, protein-packed oats racking up all the likes. Can we get a double tap?! The basic recipe:
“//BASELINE RATIO// 290 cals: 36C/3F/27P
85g grated carrot
184g egg whites
//HIGH PROTEIN RATIO// 250 cals: 26C/2F/30P
85g grated carrot
230g egg whites
Stovetop: Bring 1 -1/3 cup SALTED water to a boil in a saucepan (I reduce the water to 1 cup if doing 30g or less). Add dry oats and grated carrot to water and cook at moderate heat for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Keeping the pan over heat, add egg whites and whisk briskly for a FULL 60 seconds (I also turn the heat up a bit). Switch to a spoon and stir constantly over heat until egg whites are cooked through and have reached desired creamy consistency.
Sweetener and toppings: @waldenfarmsinternational syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg- I grate WHOLE nutmeg w/ a microplane. Remove from heat and stir in syrup/spices to taste. Top with additional syrup and cinnamon- AND other fave toppings. My go to is @cocoabarinajar! But swipe for other ideas
For the carrots, I use a food processor with a grater attachment and grate about a week’s worth of carrots. I weigh them out and into individual baggies and store in the fridge. When it’s time to make my oats, it takes me about 6 minutes from start to finish doing it stove top.”
2. Next up is Alec Treffs at @alectreffs
Alec’s bowls are always packing in the nutrition and providing satisfying ways to keep toppings fresh and “spoonworthy.” You can visit her story highlights to see how she keeps her oatmeal full of protein and browse her posts for all the topping inspiration you could want.
3. Ashley Wiseman at @ashleylwiseman is a longtime fan and recipe sharer of Coach’s Oats.
This hip, fit mom has creative ideas to keep your oatmeal bowl healthy and ready to fuel you for whatever your day has in store. Here are a few of her of her tips:
“1.Choose a protein! This one is important. I like to add egg whites, or even a whole egg, or a scoop of protein powder*.
2. Add some healthy fats! I almost always go for an oversized spoonful of some kind of nut butter, but you can also sprinkle almonds, chia seeds, cashews, etc., on top for an extra crunch!
3. Top with berries! Berries are low in calories + carbs, high in fiber, and packed with nutrition. They add an extra punch of flavor, too! Yum!”
We even get recipes beyond the bowl shared by our fans. For example, these Chocolate Oatmeal Cups from
These are getting an add to our recipe que for sure.
“These chocolate oatmeal cups were super easy to make and are loaded with protein! Eat these at home or on the go! Either way, ya need to make them. You also should probably spread some extra peanut butter on top for good measure! Yeah, go ahead and do that.

Sometimes our favorite part about hearing from fans is being reminded just how versatile oatmeal can be. The toppings, add-ins and mix-ins are endless. This is a recent favorite of ours from
She added bacon, butter and dates to this delectable bowl of Coach’s Oats.
Speaking of mix-ins, you can bring seasonal flavors and smells to your oatmeal bowl any time of year for that added breakfast cheer! We recommend trying
5. Breanna Ellingson’s @resetremedy Pumpkin Oatmeal any day and every season:
“Pumpkin Coach’s Oats
(Makes about 4 servings)
3 cups almond milk
1/2 cup pumpkin
1/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp vanilla, optional
1 1/2 cups Coach’s Oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
1 Tbsp almond butter
Optional toppings: raisins, sliced almonds, banana, coconut
Bring almond milk, pumpkin, honey and vanilla to a boil, add oats then reduce to medium heat and simmer for 3 minutes. Turn off heat and add spice and almond butter. Cover and let sit for 3-5 minutes. Stir. Serve in 4 bowls and add any desired toppings plus a splash of almond milk if you like! *Add more or less sweetener depending on your taste. I always go less because my kids insist on adding honey in their bowls so they can SEE it 😉 *you can add more milk at the end if you prefer a thinner oatmeal *you can use rolled oats or steel cut oats but you will need to adjust the cook time.”
Lastly, we wanted to include a savory side of oats in the mix; we think it’s a much under-appreciated application for oatmeal. Of course you can always top with an egg and a little cheese, but
6. Randy Laub at @clint24hr goes above and beyond.
He has created many creative recipes with Coach’s Oats. A comfort food favorite of ours is the Turkey Meatloaf.
As Randy stated, “Homemade meatloaf prepared with organic ground turkey, organic egg, @coachsoats oatmeal, carrot, garlic, nutmeg, Worcestershire sauce, cilantro, kosher salt and black pepper. Dripping with sauce of organic ketchup, Dijon mustard and Worcestershire sauce.”
So, there you have it. A few of our favorite recipes. Please keep sharing, following us and follow our fans!
