4 easy steps to instant pot oats Step 1: Place the metal trivet in the inner pot of your pressure cooker and pour in 1 cup cold water. Step 2: In a heat-safe bowl (a Pyrex measuring cup or bowl works well here,) mix your oats and liquids together with a bit of salt and a sprinkling of any nutrition-boosting seeds like chi. Cooking steel cut oats the traditional way can take up to 30 to 40 minutes of cooking time.

But when you toss them into the Instant Pot, the cooking time is cut to 3 to 4 minutes with the resting time of about 10 minutes where the grains continue to soften. Be sure to allow time for the pressure cooker to come. Mix oats and water together in the Instant Pot. Lock the lid in place and turn the valve the sealing position.

Press the “manual” button and set the cook time for 4 minutes. When the oatmeal is finishe. Instructions Pour one cup of water into the insert pot of the Instant Pot. Place trivet in insert pot of Instant Pot. In a heat-proof mug or bowl, combine rolled oats, 1 cup of water, and pinch of salt.

The trick is to spray the inner pot, add plenty of liquid, and to stir well before cooking to avoid the dreaded “burn” message. The Instant Pot is a great way to make your oatmeal because it comes together and quickly cooks in just a matter of minutes. No need to make it the night before or stand over the stove!For quick oats, the ratio of oats to water is 1 cup of oats to 1 2/3 cups of water.

Pour the water and the oats into the Instant Pot. You can add a pinch of salt if you would like. Secure the lid and make sure the pressure nozzle is sealed. Insert the trivet into the Instant Pot. Pour in 1 cup cold water inside the inner pot for a 3 or 6-quart instant pot and 1.5 cups of cold water into an 8 quart instant pot.

Inside a 7-cup heat-safe bowl, mix together the oats, 1 cup water, and 2 cups milk, and flaxseed. Please note that Pyrex is NO longer approved for using. Most goetta recipes include ground meat, pin head or steel cut oats, onion, bay leaf and some type of liquid for cooking the oats. Using your Instant cuts the cooking time by 75%! Most family recipes also include one or.

  • As with many other posters, my IP didn’t like this recipe. Got a “burn” message. Since the OP of this recipe hasn’t responded to anyone about this problem, I’m assuming there’s no solution.

  • I tried to make three cups of oatmeal and did an quick release and had oatmeal coming out the vent and it seems like it might have burnt on the bottom. I’m guessing I should of done a natural release, any other suggestions??

  • The way l do oatmeal l put 1 cup of oatmeal in my mini blender and some fruit like papaya blend it together and warm it on the stove Delicious!!

  • Ok just got my orange instant pot today and since it is morning i thought i would make oat meal,but when i tried to use instant release steam and out water flew out. Reminded me of my first days with my first electric pressure cooker.thumb still smarts but lesson learned

  • Thanks for the great video:)  We treated ourselves to this IP and I can’t wait to try it.  I needed to make another batch of steel cut oats so this is perfect timing.  Can’t wait.  it’s such a pain doing it in the microwave even using a wide glass bowl (and switching from high to medium power after a few minutes) because of checking the frothing up level so it doesn’t overflow all over the glass tray, which has happened more than once! I subscribed right after watching this and am looking forward to many more:)

  • Great idea to put a towel over the top. I’m thinking you did this to prevent the slight mess that the vent creates by spitting out a little water with the steam? Great video thank you!

  • 5 minutes?? I cook mine for 15. A lot of people put their beans in the instapot for 45 min, and mine don’t cook in 45 min I set mine for an hour and 15 min. Idk maybe it’s my instapot.

  • I spend many hours trying to make chicken veggie soupI am disabled and no longer have a home-maker to do it. I prebake the chicken, roast the garlic, yams, beets and can never figure out the instant pot timing. Whether to put it on zero and high pressure, and every week it tastes worse(I eat it twice a day for 7 days due to a restricted diet). If you have any suggestions to make something tasty I would be so appreciative. I have a 6 quart Instant Pot Duo. I am not technical and so I put the veggies in one at a time, and put them back in if not cooked and it takes me 4 hours! HELP! <3

  • I have several Instant Pots because I want to use them on my sailboat for crusing. Because I have limited electricity(solar cells), I have been pushing my instant pot to see how little electricity I can use. I use the three quart pots which use 700 watts intermittantly, as apposed to the 6 qt which uses 1000+. I saw a video on 0 pressure minute cooking and tried it out on my oatmeal. Great oatmeal, no more time needed. I also often throw a coupe of eggs in on top of my Chiboz mini pots which go inside of the main pot. So its a cup of water in the bottom, the trivet, a Chiboz pot with the oatmeal, raisins and water, the lid, then I throw a couple of eggs on top (they come out perfectly hard boiled), recently I added a couple of small red potatos (about the same size as the eggs and amazing, they are edible), then I set the pot for 0 pressure minutes, and let it cycle through the heat up and cool down times. Everything is cooked just fine.

  • Beginner Instant Pot-ter here. ��. Made your pumpkin oatmeal for myself and my mom Christmas morning and it was great! We added a few raisins to ours in place of chocolate chips and also drizzled a very small amount of maple syrup. Great change of pace for breakfast. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  • I love oatmeal but sometimes i get really lazy at the thought of cleaning my instant pot for just 2 serving of oatmeal. Yikes!
    Having said, i like your recipe

  • Ok Im new at this and I followed your instructions to the T and the oatmeal was burned on the bottom…Got any ideas why, When it was done it went to off but did not release, I did not see any L or count down.do I have to set it for slow release? Pretty sad that if I can’t make oatmeal I may have wasted money on this IP

  • Hi, Thank You for this explenation. I have my instantpot since yesterday and this morning I thought “Lets make an oatmail breakfast “. But after the warmingup time the display sayd: burn. This happend 2 times. In between I cleaned the bottom and added some extra water. Is there something I did wrong? Thank You for your answer. Mignon (Netherlands)

  • I’m using an instant pot duo and used the same settings with 1 cup oatmeal and 2 cups water but I got the burn message. How can I prevent this?

  • I tried these last night, and they became gelatinous by the morning. How should I adjust for next time? More liquid? Cook for less time? Thank you!

  • SPEAK SO FAST…. JUST AMERICAN CAN UNDERSTAND YOU!. BUT IF YOU WANT EVERYBODY WATCH YOUR VIDEOS SPEAK SLOW.. PLEASE.. THANKS.!

  • Helpful but not your fault that this thing is far from “instant”! Have to wait to get pressurized before the 5min begins. Then you have to wait for 10min. Then carefully depressurize and remove lid. That’s almost 20 minutes. You can cook in a stovetop in same amount of time.

    I just made it following along with you and it works. Too much salt taste for me I’d use 1 pinch but it did work. A good intro to using the instant pot but zero time savings.

  • Using IP Duo 6 qt: I got a burn message and cooked oatmeal was stuck to the bottom. Followed the directions in the video, what did I do wrong?

  • Why didn’t you just put all those ingredients in the instant pot to begin with. Wouldn’t it taste better that way rather than adding dry ingredients and mixing at the end

  • I used to try to hack the stovetop steel cut oats method by doing the 5-minute boil the night before, leaving the oats on the stove (with lid) overnight, then doing the simmer in the morning. It greatly cut down on morning cook time. Tried steel cut in the IP today and it turned out great!

    I was skeptical of the IP when my partner bought it. So far I’m on board with it for cooking broths, grains, and roots but I prefer the slow-and-low in cast iron and a real oven for meats and veg.

    When I was single my only oatmeal toppings were raisins and honey. Now somehow they are cream, brown sugar, maple syrup (yes both), strawberries and blueberries.

  • how did you know to set it to 4 minutes when the preset on my machine for porridge says 20 minutes?
    Is the preset for a certain set amount? How’d you figure 4 minutes is there another guide somewhere?
    Very confusng

  • Kristen thank you so much for sharing your cool recipies with us. Also for offering Karen Ps site I have used her neat recipies but did not know she was the author of that particular site. Good luck with your new house!

  • Weird. I prefer the mushy texture. The kind that you like reminds me of eating shredded coconut or card board or bark from a tree. Also, is your pot 8 or 6 quart version?

  • I know that you have made videos touching on this before, but I am a college student struggling with my relationship with food/body/exercise. Could you touch on how to heal this, how to buikd good habits, and easy/accessible meals to have to heal? I know you aren’t a doctor or giving medical advise, I’d just like input <3

  • This was so easy. So much easier than cooking it on the stove. I will be making this tomorrow for my family. Thanks for sharing.

  • I put 2.5 cups water in and 1 cup of old fashioned oats and cooked it for low pressure for 1 minute and it still says burn?? The bottom of the inner pot is very clean so i have no idea what im doing wrong. I dont know how i keep messing something up thats THIS EASY, ive been cooking it the same exact way for almost a year now in the instant pot, 1:2 ratio of oats:water and low pressure for 1 minute and it came out perfect everytime but now all of a sudden its saying burn?? what am i doing wrong??

    EDIT: it turns out that when i removed the inner white seal to wash it, i forgot to put it back in

  • I’ve never seen steel cut oats here in my city… but I liked the flavor suggestions. I’ll try with rolled oats! It must be delish as well!

  • quick oats cook the fastest old fashion oats take longer are better for you and are denser. Wanted to try this but did not want to mess it up and throw food away so thanks for doing this and prayers for your fellow you tuber’s husband.

  • Are there recipes that give the full start to finish timing for Instant Pot recipes? All I can find are the cooking times and when I try seem to always take 20 minutes minimum. I get that cooking times are great marketing, but I live in real life, please consider giving the total time from start to finish. Thanks.

  • after having steel cuts for months, i ran out so began using old fashioned. oh man i didn’t like it…i’m not sure if it was the time suggested…i’m gonna experiment a few more times with teh old fasioned oats and time….i ‘ve always done 9 minutes for my PIP steel cut oats with NR.

  • I make individual servings of oatmeal in Mason jars. Add 1/4 cup oats, 1/2 cup liquid (water or milk), chopped up fresh fruit (strawberries, blueberries. apples, peaches, bananas etc), and some cinnamon or preferred spices into each jar. Each person can customize their own favorite flavors and ingredients. Put 1 cup water in instant pot and place jars on the trivet. I lay the canning jar lid on each jar to keep out any dripping water. Manual for 4 minutes and its done! Serve in jar.

  • This is great, I like to prep ahead, so perfect! Thanks and can’t wait to see you finished house.
    In one video you used what looked like a heated food processor or mixer, could you give me the item description, thanks again for your wonderful work and incredible personality!

  • I do pot in pot to make a single serving. Easiest way ever. Plus by the time I open the pot my oatmeal is cool enough to nor curdle whey protein powder.

  • I learned a lot from your channel Thanks and keep the videos coming. I want to can meats and vegatables with my Pot is there a cook book that has instructions. Thanks and I’ll keep watching

  • This is my first time using my instant pot. I normally make my oatmeal with milk. Can I do it with milk on instant pot? Probably silly question

  • Can you suggest a water to oats ratio and cooking time for the regular, not quick-cooking steel cut oats? Those are my husbands favorite. Thank you!

  • Looks good! Two questions: Do you think you could use milk instead of water? And could you add all the goodies right into the pot with the oats before cooking?

  • The pumpkin oatmeal is wonderful! I used apple pie spice instead of nutmeg and cinnamon because both are in there. But I topped it with whipping cream and it really tasted like a pumpkin pie. Will fix again.

  • Martha Stewart spoke with glottal fry early in her TV career. Thankfully she dropped the habit. l will choose the closed captions to learn from these very informative videos.

  • I bought some Bobs Red Mill steel cut Oats which are NOT quick cooking. I followed your oatmeal demo and they were perfect! These are the best oats I’ve ever had. I agree with you they have a terrific chew. I’ve never had the non Quick oats before and it makes a huge difference. I also bought a couple of silicone mini mitts after seeing you use them. Great addition to my Instant Pot accessories. Thanks so very much for the videos and hats off to Dude for good camera work. Keep those videos coming. I check every day.

  • I think the problem I had was the oats. They are steel cut but they are “quick” cooking oats. Bobs red mill are not I don’t think. Bobs red mill directions are to cook for ten to twenty minutes on the stove while Quaker steel cut say ready in three minutes.

  • Great Video! Thanks for the Tip!
    You save me from throwing away a box of Oats. Here is my story. I went to the store to pick up some Oats. I got home, and to my surprise, I bought Steel Cut Oats instead of Old Fashion Oats. It took forever to cook. Now that I have an Instant Pot, I don’t have to get rid of the Oats. Tip for you…try cooking Oatmeal in Apple Juice instead of water. No sugar needed. Thanks again for the tip.

  • Off to do it right now. I bought some steel cut oats. I have always used Silver Palette brand because I liked the texture. I’m betting they are steel cut. Years ago I tried steel cut Irish Oats and I didn’t like them so I assumed that all steel cut oats looked like teeny tiny bits.

  • I tried it this morning, my first instant pot meal. I used a borosilicate bowl, and a 6 qt instant pot. 8 minutes but it was very watery not creamy. I used McCann’s steel cut oats. What do you suggest?

  • Almost every morning I make this recipe however I use pot-in-pot cuz it cuts the clean up time. Also I like to add a shy teaspoon of vanilla powder before cooking. A enjoy your channel, thanks.

  • I’ve been buying whole oat groats for about 25 years, and using a home flaker from Germany. You seem very dogmatic about using steel-cut as opposed to rolled or flaked. Why? Do you know something that we don’t know? There is no comparison between any store-bought (incl. Bob’s) and fresh flaked oats. Plus, it’s a heck of a lot cheaper than processed. Please reply, and I enjoy your channel-and my I-Pot!

  • This can probably be done with 3-4 minutes too. Regular oatmeal only takes about 10 min with boiling water. High temp pressure cooking is way faster.

  • I wish I had seen your VLOG before I purchased my IP! Darn it!! I have used the IP every evening for dinner. My only complaint is that in slow cooker mode, too much liquid remains behind in the dish. Otherwise, so far, so good. I like oatmeal at breakfast so I’ll try your recipe. Thank you for posting!

  • Thank you for all your recipes and videos. I could watch you cook all day!! I enjoy my instant pot so much that I got my daughter one and told her to study all your videos.

  • I really wish she also did these recipes without the blue tooth because we don’t have that and it really confuses and frustrates me because idk if settings are different:(

  • Why didn’t you just put all those ingredients in the instant pot to begin with. Wouldn’t it taste better that way rather than adding dry ingredients and mixing at the end

  • 1-2 servings is too much trouble to use the IP…unless you do PIP….i also found that 4 m NR was way too long…tasted too mushy,…..i experimented and found that 1 min manual and NR was more than enough to cook the oatmeal..using 1: 2 ratio..although i may even try using slightly more water. i made the mistake one time to do QR and man i had a massive mess of spillage all over the place…super no fun….(i was so used to doing my steel cuts i’ve been having steel cuts for months and ran out so i had to use old fashioned).

  • Steel Cut Oatmeal instant pot

    Pot in pot set up.Trivet and 1 cup water in the IP liner.
    Place trivet in liner which holds the bowl above the water
    Ingredients in bowl sits on top of trivet

    Into the stainlesss steel bowl or Pyrex bowl put
    1/2 cup steel oats
    1 3/4 cups water
    Bit of sugar
    Bit of salt
    Pat of butter
    Sprinkle of dried cranberries

    Set it on Manual for 7 minutes. I let it decompress for about 4 minutes. It looked a little watery but I took it out and gave it a stir. Perfect. Tasty and a filling breakfast.

  • Thank you very much for that recipe, I usually do oats on the stove which takes long to soften up, but from now on I’ll be using my Instant pot, but can I pour in some milk in it before I turn it on?

  • You look beautiful naturally. Tell that to the lizard face Chrissy Teigen how it should be done. eating healthy and being happy. Chrissy was already ugly with the excessive plastic surgery she ‘invested’ for gold digging purposes. Fuck.

  • Great Video & delicious recipe! I’ve been making my steel cut oats exactly to your video & it’s been perfect every time! Thank you!

  • I’m planning on cooking steel cut oats in my Instant Pot tomorrow. I followed the slow cooker recipe on the steel cut oat’s package annd was no impressed with the results. I hope your Instant Pot method yields better results.

  • Great, I am ready to go now! I am going to add dried cherries, coconut and walnuts Do you foresee any problems? Thank you so much., Genie

  • Hmm, maybe the brand I use is different. I make mine 5 days a week using the timer so that it is ready for when I get up for work. I use a large “soup” style coffee cup on the steamer rack in my pot. My formula calls for a 3rd cup of blue berries, a 3rd cup of steel cut oats, 1 cup of milk and a pat of butter. 15 minutes and a natural release. the pressure has dropped so that I can open the pot when I enter the kitchen in the morning to pour my coffee.

  • were your steel cut oats whole or were they cut? i bought some that are “7 minutes cooking” (i take longer even on stove with hot water)….so i’m wondering how long they may take in the IP..could you do a video with the cut steel cut oats?

  • Yes to more instant pot recipes! Also, your skin looks amazing in this vid makeup, something new in your diet? You’re glowing! ✨

  • I know that this vid is almost 3yrs old but I am making steel cut oat for the 1st time in my Instant Pot to it was very helpful to me. Thank you!

  • I do the same thing with steel cut oats. I usually do 5-6 cups of water to 2 cups of steel cut oats for 4 mins. I add cinnamon and apples and it’s so yummy! I sweeten it and freeze the left overs in individual containers so I can take it to work for breakfast. Delicious!

  • thanks for your video.  I have only had my IP for a couple of months so I am still learning how to use it.  One thing I do with Steel cut oats is use the sauté feature and toast the oats in some coconut oil.

  • I find oatmeal such a comfort food, & I can eat it all year round! putting it with the pumpkin purée sounds yummy, must try! Tfs sending blessings for the new home����

  • Thanks for your video. I just made my first pot of steel cut oats and I thought I would try it in and my Ekovanna insert pan. I wanted to simplify clean up so I thought I’d give it a try. I followed your instructions and when I opened the instant pot there was a lot of water. They didn’t seem to be fully cooked so I did another five minutes and they came out great. I also used chopped dates when I cooked mine for a little different flavoring. In the end, my pressure cook time was ten minutes.

  • Thank You for the video. I just got my Instant Pot for Christmas and the instructions are confusing. You made it much more simple. Appreciate it.

  • Adding a towel on top is advised against. Anyone can do as they please, but I want you to know just in case. Thanks for this wonderful recipe.

  • Looking forward to this recipe. I love steel-cut oats in the IP. BTW, I don’t see the name or link to your friend, did you forget?

  • I made steel cut oats in the IP as you suggested and they were absolutely amazing! The ‘chew’ was just perfect! Thanks for sharing!

  • Thanks! this is an excellent recipe. I, too, brown the oats in a little butter before cooking. I use almond milk and cinnamon and raw sugar when done. Delish!

  • I don’t know what it is but for some reason your face has been GLOWING so much more. You look as though you’re genuinely happy and it’s radiating through. I love your videos more and more each week ��

  • Caitlin to my rescue yet again! ���� I have tried this half a dozen times but have never been happy with the results. The other bloggers failed me, but you’re setting it right. THANK YOU!!

    I would looove it if you did more Instant Pot recipes in the future. Since my second child came along I have almost exclusively been using the IP for convenience.

  • I tried your method and it works great!  Checked a bunch of other videos and yours is the most straight forward and easy peasy, so I subscribed.  Thanks!

  • I am a newbie with my Instant Pot, so this is probably a stupid question! What is the difference in using the Manual setting with High Pressure and using the Steam setting? Thanks!

  • Just watched this video because I’ve just purchased one of these machines and can’t get the oats correct. This video helped so much. Didn’t realize that after it beeps to not release the valve but to actually let it sit and count up to 10 mins. So thank u for making this video. Very helpful.

  • How much time does your method take from the time you hit start until the time you can serve it?

    I cook huge batches of soaked dried beans in a pressure cooker and it takes about 1.5 hours even though the actual cooking time is about 20-25 minutes. I have a Fagor brand pressure cooker, but I might get an instant pot.

  • I put it on sautee.. add a tablespoon of coconut oil.. when it heats up I like to toast the oats a bit.. then 1 cup of almond milk, half a cup of water.. little salt and cinnamon.. Same cooking time as yours and top with frozen blueberries.

  • I just got my IP on Amazon’s July sale, I’ve been playing around with it, I’ll need to find a stainless bowl about that size to fit inside. Thank you for your videos Flo. I did find out what the Rice button was meant for….it is used for likely store bought White rice or boxed Minute Rice. I do buy good Jasmine Rice so use the Manual button. Rice button has LOW PRESSURE, as I think some of those Rice types are precooked some.

  • Hi Clarity. Sorry, I don’t know your name:) I just got my pot and I was disappointed to learn that the instruction manual says to avoid cooking oatmeal. They list a bunch of foods to avoid cooking in the instant pot… for the frothing / sputtering reason that you mention. The concern is that the food could block the valves on the lid. Your batch looked really small, though. Probably not an issue. And I don’t really see what the concern is, unless they’re afraid you’ll get hot food coming up out of the steam release valve when you open it. That concern could be solved with your towel trick, though. Thanks for sharing your recipes here. They’ll help me jump start my learning curve with this thing. Peace.

  • i bought my instant pot and its been sitting on my counter for about a month. I looked at your video for the test drive with steaming the water though i havent yet tried itplus now this recipe for the steel cuts thank you. It seems less intimidating now.

  • Steel cut oats are my favorite but the time cooking and babysitting them makes it more of a weekend endeavor but thanks to you I can do this so much more often.

  • have you ever tried cooking them for only 1 minute on low pressure? you should try it! Ive tried every combination of cooking oatmeal, on high and low pressure for 4, 3, 2, and 1 minute and 1 minute on low pressure is the best setting for old fashioned oats.

  • I have never liked oatmeal. Never. I’ve made your recipe twice now, and I really enjoy it. I’ve used apple, pear, raisins and even walnuts. It comes out perfect but there’s some sticking. Is that normal? The texture is perfect so I don’t want to add more water. Any suggestions?

  • I love cooking oats in my instant pot. I put it in before I walk my dog, and it’s ready when I come back. For a savory option, one of my favorite oatmeal flavors is frozen peas, salt, pepper, nooch, and hot sauce.

  • I live for oatmeal �� I usually do mine with cinnamon and mixed berries, but sometimes I do cinnamon, chocolate chips, almond extract and fresh strawberries! I just got my first instapot so I’m excited to learn more recipes!:)

  • I followed the instructions exactly and it burnt! I usually use low pressure whatever I’m cooking to retain as many nutrients as possibe in the food but seeing as it’s such a short time I thought I’d try high pressure as the video showed. Big mistake!

  • Thanks for the recipe. I just made it and it’s really good. I added milk to mine after in my bowl. But the oatmeal did burn a bit at the bottom. Anyone know the combo to make it not burn?

  • oats + banana + brown sugar / maple syrup or oats + frozen mixed berries (their juice comes out in the warm oats and makes it SO good)

  • ooooo I need get to get myself an instant pot! Love these oatmeal recipes! My fav toppings is banana and frozen mixed berries:P xx

  • My favorite oatmeal combo is old fashion oats, mashed banana, chopped strawberries, cinnamon, 1 tbsp vegan vanilla protein powder, raisins, topped with shredded coconut, sugar free syrup, and Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter

  • My absolute favorite oatmeal right now is fresh mango, banana, kiwi, unsweetened coconut flakes, raw almonds, a little drizzle of maple syrup & unsweetened vanilla almond milk.  Yum!  It keeps me full all day.

  • I’ve made steel cut oats using the pot in pot method and I love it. Thank you so much for showing us this method. I love adding some frozen tropical fruits once the oats are cooked and they defrost perfectly. So delicious and nutritious too!

  • I wish I liked oatmeal! Don’t like the texture and taste. Watching you eat it all the time in your videos always makes me want to make it. Then I do…and nope.

  • My favorite oatmeal recipe is unsweetened vanilla almond milk, oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, agave, banana, blueberry, peanut butter❤️❤️❤️

  • HI…basics never go out of style…great video…thank you! if I want one cup of steel oats, would you clarify the amount of water…
    do you think one cup will cause froth? Thanks again…

  • I also like to add some chopped dried apples before cooking and then cinnamon, raisins and chopped pecans or walnuts after cooking. The apples just melt into the oatmeal and are so yummy!

  • Hey:D I have an oatmeal alternative you might be interested in! Cook 2 cups of chia seeds, 2 1/2 cups of nut milk and a pinch of salt in the instapot on high for 2-3 minutes. I like adding in peanut powder to mine, but it works with as many combinations of flavors as oatmeal does. People tend to only eat chia seeds on top of things or as pudding, but chia “oat” meal is really great and lasts about 4 days:D Oh I have a knock-off instapot, so the time and temp. might be different than the real one?

  • Hi Caitlin I like my oatmeal with unsweetened vanilla almond milk, flax meal, cinnamon, Cacao powder, bananas, blueberries, almond butter and top with a sprinkle of sun flower seeds.

  • i’ve watched quite a few videos calling for diff cook times…i’ve been sticking to 9 -10m and 10 m then realease…i like your consistency so i will try the 4 m and 20m release….has anyone bought the BOB MILLS “cooks in 7m” bags? i’m just curious how it can cook on the stove in 7m when i take longer in an instant pot! lol:)

  • Yaas! Please do more instant pot videos. Your recipes are always spot on and I need more instant pot recopies that I can rely on:)

  • I subbed Karen’s channel. I have seen her vids before. I am adding her husband and family to my prayer list. I have loved your IP recipes and have learned so much and eat much healthier now. I even got a 3 qt IP for camping!

  • FYI When I watch your videos on my TV, I hear a really loud humming sound during your voice overs. Im not getting this sound on any other videos in my feed.

  • is it best to add the “sweetners” after the oats cook? i see vids where ppl dump all the stuff into the pot to cook…i will be making oats for 20 ppl so. was thiking if i do it individually it ‘d be a bit time consuming…i guess i could add the “additions” after the oats finish cooking and mix, then scoop into individual portions?

  • maybe try to speak more clearly in the voiceover next video. its a bit hard and frankly annoying to figure out what youre mumbling about… especially for non-native speakers

  • i’m just curious, what would happen if you took off the lid right away?? HAHA sorry i’m not very familiar with how pressure cookers work. love this recipe!!

  • Considering the time waiting for pressure to build and come back down, wouldn’t steel cut oats cook on the stove for about the same amount of time?

  • Those oats cooked 5 mins and sat for 10 mins before releasing the rest of the steam. There is way to much water left in the pot for my liking. So would you increase the 5 mins to 6 or 7 mins. for less water??

  • Thanks Girl, this will be fabulous! I will totally make this for my Family, minus me ����. I don’t like Oatmeal, except for oatmeal cookies! Good luck with the House building and moving. One of these days add your 5 sisters to your vlog, would like to see them! ��

  • Attempted to make this morning but found the stainless bowl I had on hand kept the lid from sealing so switched to stove top…still made an amazing breakfast! Now I am motivated to get the right insert to make this again. Thanks for the video!

  • I have a huge box of steel cut oats and I didn’t know what to do with them, but now I do. Thank you sooo much!

    Also, I’m really sorry that you’ve been going through a lot lately! ��❤️
