Cooking Tips for Instant Pot Oatmeal Recipe


1. Serving Portion:

As a reference, eating ¼ cup (20g) of steel cut oats per person without any additional toppings for breakfast can keep us full for roughly 3 hours.

2. What is the Maximum Amount of Steel Cut Oats I Can Make in the Instant Pot?

Do not fill your pressure cooker more than half way full with steel cut oats, as it is a foamy food.
