I LOVE steel cut oats! I love the lovely nutty flavor, the texture, and for whatever reason I always feel like they satisfy me longer. (Maybe it’s all in my head?? Either way, it’s working for me!)

Being egg free can make breakfasts super challenging. So when it comes to my fellow egg free readers, I have a heart for your struggles! I know for me there are days I wander my kitchen trying to find something for breakfast that doesn’t take forever and isn’t the SAME THING I have had a million times already. 

Oats are a great option for me, they are incredibly versatile, check out my banana split oatmeal recipe, endless flavor possibilities and regular oats are QUICK! Stove top steel cut oats, not so much! However, if you own one of these WONDERFUL Instant Pots (or other pressure cooker)


Oats are a great source of healthy carbs as well. One of the (many) reasons I love THM is the use of all fuel sources. Nothing is omitted, all of God’s healthy foods are included and I do believe they help us attain optimal health!

Another little tip, I like having oats as my dessert if I have enough time between my dinner or eat a FP dinner, then I can enjoy my E oats within 2 hours. They are sweet and have natural protein in them and for some people, a few carbs before bed helps with sleep! 


So you can enjoy this wonderfully simple, yet delicious recipe day or night! 

This recipe makes 3-4 servings…I am not a number gal, so I kinda eat until satisfied. If you need additional protein with this to hold you for 3 hours, I would recommend my London Fog protein tea or a FP Trimmie from the cookbook! Rounds out this meal beautifully! 

Bonus tip!     Since I want to eat ASAP, I don’t usually do this extra step, but many people do and really like the flavor it adds. Try browning your oats first! Turn your cooker onto saute, let it get hot, drop in a teaspoon of butter, allow it to melt and pour in your oats. Stir frequently until your oats are a little browned. Then proceed as directed. 


Be creative! I have given you a base recipe, but use those extracts, spices and creative juices! Oats are super friendly to adding in other fruits such as apples, pears, bananas and berries!  I suggest cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice, I also think a yummy 5 spice, apple pie spice blend, nutmeg or allspice would be yummy. Don’t forget a pinch of salt to bring out those flavors!

Servings 3


  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 2.5 cups water
  • 2 Tablespoons Super Sweet Blend
  • 1/2-1 teaspoons cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 Tablespoon butter this is all your allowed fat for an E meal


  • Place all ingredients in your electric pressure cooker. Mix together (dont worry about your chunk of butter, it will melt and mix in after its cooked)
  • I used the porridge setting, manual would work as well, you want 5 minutes High Pressure, now walk away!
  • When the time is finished, wait for the pressure to release naturally. Mine took about 12 minutes.
