    PINE Instant Pot Steel Cut Oats

    Oatmeal for breakfast is pretty much my morning go to on busy weekends.

    It’s simple, quick, SO satisfying and you can top it so many ways.

    Plus, you can make it so many ways. You can make it into cookie dough overnight oats or snickerdoodle vegan overnight oats, you can add some protein into them and make cookie dough protein oatmeal or cinnamon roll protein oatmeal or you can even make slow cooker oatmeal.

    BUT the slow cooker is so 2018 and now we’re all about the instant pot so instant pot steel cut oatmeal is the NEW thing to eat for breakfast.

    Don’t worry though, if you’re not ultra trendy and don’t have an Instant pot, just make easy overnight steel cut oats. I got you.

    What are steel cut oats?

    Steel cut oats are the groats (inner kernel with the inedible hull removed) of whole oats which have been chopped into or two pieces.

    The Difference Between Steel Cut Oats and Rolled Oats

    Steel cut oats have more fiber than rolled oats, and less calories per volume. They also have a lower glycemic index than rolled oats. Steel cut oats also absorb less liquid during their cook time, which leaves them a lot firmer in texture than rolled oats. They also take a lot longer to cook than rolled oats.

    How To Make Steel Cut Oats in Instant Pot

    Rinse

    Just like making instant pot coconut rice or instant pot rice, you need to rinse your dry steel cut oats in a mesh strainer under water until the water runs clear

    mixed

    Mix the rinsed oats with the water in your Instant Pot

    cooking

    Put the lid on, make sure it’s set to “sealing” and cook on high pressure for 7-9 minutes, depending on how creamy you like your oatmeal!

    let stand

    Let the Instant pot stand for 10 minutes before you do a pressure release and then EAT!

    How long to cook Instant Pot steel cut oats

    I like my oatmeal to be creamy, so I like mine best cooked at 7 minutes. But if you’re a thick oatmeal kind of person, you may want to experiment between 8 or 9 minutes. Don’t cook the oats longer or they will likely just burn to the bottom of your Instant Pot!

    Toppings

    This Instant Pot steel cut oats recipe can be topped so many ways depending on your mood! Some of my favorite things to use as toppings are:
