Apple Cinnamon Instant Pot Steel Cut Oats
Here’s an easy recipe for Apple Cinnamon Instant Pot Steel Cut Oats made dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan. Make this creamy and naturally sweet healthy breakfast in 30 minutes.
Steel cut oats are one of those foods I never cooked before I got an Instant Pot, because they take forever to cook. I mean, who has that kind of time the morning?
Thankfully, the pressure cooker cooks them just perfectly in 6 minutes cooking time (31 minutes total time). I recommend the 6-quart Duo Instant Pot as it is the perfect size, without too many features or unnecessary buttons.
Steel cut oats are a nutritious ingredient that are very versatile. Some people even make a savory version of oatmeal to serve as a side dish at lunch or dinnertime.
Combine the oats, dairy-free milk (I like unsweetened almond milk), ground cinnamon, raisins, chopped apple, and date syrup or maple syrup in your Instant Pot. You don’t need to stir the mixture.
Lock on the lid and set the time to 6 minutes at high pressure. Let the pressure come down naturally for 10 minutes and then remove the lid.
Stir the cooked Instant Pot steel cut oatmeal and serve it hot. Refrigerate or freeze any leftovers and re-heat before serving.
This recipe is really meant for steel cut oats.
You can use any kind of unsweetened dairy-free milk, including almond milk, oat milk, coconut beverage, or cashew milk.
