Breakfast Time! Three Minute Oats in the Instant Pot!

Follow by Email

Hi everyone! Danielle here again! 🙂

I’m not a big breakfast person, but I LOVE oatmeal – and Instant Pot steel cut oats! I don’t like cooking it on the stove, and I’m moving away from using the microwave, so the Instant Pot is the next best thing! I purchased Wegman’s brand Organic Steel Cut Oats at last night, and looked at the directions. 25-30 minutes on the stove, or 3-4 hours in the slow cooker. To that I said, “No way man,” and set off on an Instant Pot journey. From start to finish, these took me approximately 15 minutes (only 3 minutes of actual cook time), and they taste delightful! I added brown sugar and some dried cranberries – I’m a sucker for brown sugar and oatmeal! If you prefer the oats a little softer, they can be cooked a bit longer as well, but I find that 3 minutes is satisfactory.

If you eat a lot of oatmeal and would prefer to shop in your pj’s, Amazon has a great deal on Bob’s Red Meal Steel Cut Oats  – and they come in a 4 pack! I’m all about bulk shopping! 🙂

Enjoy!! 🙂
