How To Make Oatmeal In The Instant Pot?
Turn your Instant Pot to Sauté mode. Once the pot is hot, add in your butter and apples.
Sauté the apples or about 3 minutes, or until the apples are softened.
Press cancel on your Instant Pot.
Add in your remaining ingredients, the sugar, cinnamon, salt, oats and water.
Close your Instant Pot lid and close the sealing valve.
Set your Instant Pot to High Pressure (or use the Porridge button if available) for 1 minute.
Once the time is done, do a quick release.
Stir your porridge and enjoy! Garnish with a more cinnamon if desired.
Here are some non dairy milk options to serve with your oatmeal:
- Soy Milk.
- Almond Milk.
- Coconut Milk.
- Oat Milk.
- Rice Milk.
- Cashew Milk.
- Macadamia Milk.
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?
- 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.
- Oatmeal is a healthy breakfast and is a great option for a balanced diet. If you’re watching your carbs, add less sugar and less cinnamon and simply use the sweetness of the apples and any other fruits you choose to add.
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.
