Pressure Cooker (Instant Pot) Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats

I usually make a batch of Steel Cut Oats every week.  The whole family eats them up.  Here is an easy basic starter recipe.


  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts of choice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3-4 cups water (for extra creaminess and calories, sub 1 can coconut milk for 2 cups water)
  • For added sweetness, add 3-6 drops Stevia


  1. In instant pot, stir oats, seeds, cinnamon and liquid.
  2. Lock lid.  Cook on high pressure for 12 minutes.
  3. Allow steam vent to release.  Remove lid and stir oatmeal.  If your oatmeal is too thick, add more liquid.

A typical portion is 3/4 -1 cup cooked oatmeal.  My favorite toppings are a handful of blueberries and extra walnuts and a drizzle of honey.
