  • Keep Warm: Take advantage of the Instant Pot keep warm button. This will keep your oatmeal warm for up to ten hours so everyone can enjoy this recipe no matter what time they wake up.

Storage & Reheating Instructions

  • Fridge: Porridge and Oatmeal can be stored in both the freezer and the fridge. In fact, you can store oatmeal in your fridge for up to 5 days. Be sure to cover the porridge with cling film to prevent the top layer from becoming crusted.
  • Freeze: Oatmeal can be stored in the Freezer for up to 3 months. In fact you can freeze your oatmeal in small bags and get one out per day.
  • Reheat: All you have to do is reheat the porridge for a minute or so in the microwave until it is piping hot, stir well and add your milk of required. Adding extra liquid once reheated is always better than no extra liquid.

What To Serve With This Recipe?

  • Fruit and Nuts: Why not try serving your porridge or oatmeal with a mixture of fruits, nuts and berries, this can make the meal even more filling and add essential vitamins to the mix. I like to add chopped walnuts, toasted pecans and Chia Seeds to my cooked oats.
  • Apples: Add some chopped apples to the top of your oatmeal for an even more healthy breakfast.
  • Mini Chocolate Chips: Try adding some chocolate chips to your creamy oatmeal for a little extra sweetness.
  • Maple syrup: My daughter loves to add maple syrup to her quick oats breakfast.
  • More Toppings: You could also add sesame seeds, sliced almonds, sliced bananas or Greek Yogurt to this old fashioned oatmeal recipe.

FAQ’S

Can You Cook Oatmeal With Milk?

I prefer to cook my oatmeal with water. Adding milk makes a more sticky and lumpy texture and water works best in the Instant Pot. However we do add milk to the dish once served. This cools down the porridge a little and adds extra protein to breakfast.

Can I Use Steel Cut Oats?

In this recipe we use quick cooking oats known as rolled oats. Steel Cut Oats require a different time and water ratio so stick to the rolled oats for this recipe. Also avoid using the pot in pot method. You need the oats to absorb the water for perfectly creamy oats.
