To Cook Steel Cut Oats in the Instant Pot

  • Once you add your liquid, turn your Instant Pot to high pressure, set to 4 minutes and let it build up the pressure! Allow the pressure to release naturally for about 10 minutes, then release the rest and remove the lid. Give it a quick stir and serve it up!

Lemon Blueberry

  • Add the oats, lemon juice, blueberries and syrup into a bowl. Stir to combine. Top with remaining ingredients if using.

Peanut Butter Banana

  • Mash half the banana and add it along with the oats and 1 tablespoon of peanut butter into a bowl. Stir to combine. Top with remaining banana (which should be sliced), peanut butter and sprinkle with chia seeds.

Chocolate Coconut

  • Add oats, cacao, 1 tablespoon coconut milk and maple syrup into a bowl. Stir to combine. Top with coconut chips, chocolate chips and the rest of the coconut milk.

Peanut Butter & Jelly

  • Add the oats and peanut butter into a bowl and stir to combine. Top with jam, peanuts and coconut flakes!

Maple Sea Salt

  • Add the oats, cashew, vanilla powder, and 1 teaspoon maple syrup into a bowl. Stir to combine. Top with pecans, the rest of the syrup, the salt and a splash of almond milk if you'd like it extra creamy!
