Cinnamon-Apple Steel Cut Oats in the Instant Pot

Quick and easy Instant Pot steel cut oatmeal with apples is a hearty, healthy breakfast.

Cooking steel cut oats can take ages, but not in the Instant Pot! Like with other grains, pressure cooking steel cut oats cuts the cooking time down significantly. It takes about 20 minutes—stirring frequently—to make steel cut oats on the stovetop. In the pressure cooker, it takes five minutes at pressure with a 10-minute natural release. You shave five minutes off of the cooking time, plus, you don’t have to watch the pot. Set it, forget it and soon you’ll be eating Instant Pot Steel Cut Oatmeal with Apples.

The optional ginger gives these Steel Cut Oats with Apple a spicy little kick. If a spicy little kick is not what you're after in a breakfast recipe, you can omit the ginger.

Don't have an instant pot; I have a regular pressure cooker. It is too large to make a cup of oatmeal. I'll just continue to spend 20 minutes in the morning as I'm infusing my body with coffee and checking emails, stirring as I refill my cup to get my morning oats. Like the rest of the recipe though. Thanks for sharing this.
