This easy Instant Pot Oatmeal recipe is great for easy breakfast preparation. Set it and forget it in your pressure cooker while you prepare an oatmeal bar with all the toppings; then let everyone make their own bowl of oatmeal! A healthy gluten free breakfast option that's perfect for company, busy mornings or lazy weekends.

  • 2 cups rolled oats (use gluten free if needed)
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups milk of choice - I use hemp or other non-dairy milk
  1. Spray inside of Instant Pot (optional, but I recommend). Add oatmeal, water and dairy-free milk.

  2. Close lid and seal. Press Manual or Pressure Cook button and adjust to 3 minutes.

  3. Once the cooking time ends, allow the oatmeal to sit in the pot and reduce steam for 20 minutes. When done, flip the release valve using the end of a wooden spoon (make sure the valve is facing away from you for safety reasons). Remove lid, stir, and spoon into bowls. Leftovers can be kept for 3-5 days.

Recipe Notes

If using steel cut oats, add 2 more cups of water before cooking.
