Ingredients

Sweetener

  • Honey, Maple syrup, or Brown sugar

Garish

  • 1 (202g) gala apple , sliced

Instructions 

  • Toast Steel Cut Oats: Heat up your pressure cooker over medium heat (Instant Pot: press Saute button). Melt 1 tbsp (14g) unsalted butter in the pressure cooker and toast 1 cup (160g) steel cut oats until fragrant (~ 2 minutes).
  • Pressure Cook Steel Cut Oats: Add 2 roughly sliced gala apples, 1 tsp (5ml) vanilla extract, 1 cinnamon stick, ½ tsp nutmeg, ½ tsp allspice, ½ tsp grated fresh ginger, and a pinch of salt in the pressure cooker. Give it a quick mix and pour in 2 ½ cups (625ml) cold water. Make sure all the steel cut oats are submerged in the mixture and nothing is sticking to the bottom. Close lid and pressure cook at High Pressure for 10 minutes, then Full Natural Release (~12 minutes). Open the lid carefully.
  • Thicken Oatmeal: The oatmeal will look watery when you first open the lid. Give it a few quick stirs with a silicone spatula to break down the apple slices and thicken the oatmeal.

Cooking Tips for Instant Pot Oatmeal

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.
