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!

Super Simple IP Pressure Cooker Steel Cut Oats
- 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.
Can I double this recipe?
I don’t see why not! 🙂
When I hit porridge do I need to adjust the time? Mine says 20 mins. when I hit it. Does that allow for release and proper pressure time or does it keep it at pressure for 20 mins? I typically use manual but am trying to learn to use these settings as well. Thanks!!
You definitely need to adjust it. It will cook way too long! Set it for 5 minutes. 🙂
Then when its done its countdown, then start timing the natural release stage.
Thank you! So easy! I had never used my IP, but thought how hard can this be and I can have steel cut oats which I love. I had to figure out to push the minus sign to get to 5 minutes from the porridge setting on google because I am so green, but I figured it out and loved my breakfast. Didn’t use sweetener but added fresh pear. Easy peasy!
I made this for my husband and me this morning. We both loved it. The only tweaks I made are I used 1.5 c water and 1 c. Almond milk, I added a heaping tablespoon of THM baobab powder, and when it was done, I put a small swirl of blackstrap molasses on top and about a tsp of the new THM creamy dreamy plant protein. It was such a win, my husband said he’d eat it again tomorrow! Thank you!
Yay! Sounds wonderful!
