It’s officially 2018 and I’m super excited to be starting a new year with you. That means new recipes, lots of sharing, and many many tasty meals ahead. I seems a little odd to me, but I’ve decided to share something super simple today: my Instant Pot Steel Cut Oats, Basic Recipe. If you’re one of the many who received an Instant Pot over the holidays, I bet you’re excited to dive in and get cooking! This recipe is one you should learn so that you can make warm, steel cut oats all year long. If you’re still eyeing the Instant Pot, I highly recommend this Instant Pot (8 quart). (they also have a 6 quart and 3 quart available)
Steel cut oats are so healthy, wholesome, and make a perfect breakfast. I eat them all the time! Prior to using the instant pot, I would make them on the stove, but that requires a lot more attention. Now I just prep them, put them in the Instant Pot and walk away until they’re done. They take about as long, but require NO supervision at all. Which is exactly how I like my breakfast.
I played with the recipe several times to come up with one that resulted in the consistency I like for my oats. They are chewy and creamy. Some of you make like a softer oat, so you could cook them for 12 minutes. Try 10 and see, you can adjust as needed. I use water in this recipe. The oats turn out thick and creamy this way, no milk needed.
I’m including ingredients below for cinnamon raisin oats, but you can play with the spices and ingredients a lot to make so many different varieties. One of my favorites is Pumpkin Steel Cut Oats. I hope you enjoy this recipe for Instant Pot Steel Cut Oats, take a picture and let me know which varieties you like best!
