Cooking Tips

  • Use the right oats: Opt for steel-cut oats for a chewy texture, old-fashioned oats for a creamier consistency, or rolled oats for a quick-cooking option.
  • Consider the water ratio: For steel-cut oats, use a 1:2 ratio of oats to water, while for rolled oats or old-fashioned rolled oats, a 1:1 ratio usually works best.

Variations

  • Creamy Almond Butter Oatmeal: Prepare oatmeal by cooking it in unsweetened almond milk, then enhance its richness by swirling in a dollop of almond butter.
  • Dairy Milk and Oat Milk Blend: Combine cooking oats with equal parts dairy milk and oat milk for a creamy texture.
  • Soy Milk Delight: Infuse the oats with soy milk and a dollop of almond butter for a nutty finish.

Storage & Reheating Instructions

  • Refrigeration: Keep any remaining oatmeal in an airtight container in the refrigerator, which will keep it fresh for 3-4 days.
  • Reheating on the Stovetop: Transfer oatmeal to a saucepan, add milk/water to prevent sticking, and heat over medium-low heat. Stir continuously until heated through for even consistency.
  • Instant Pot Reheat Option: In the Instant Pot, use “Saute” to gently reheat oatmeal. Add liquid and stir occasionally until it’s at the desired temperature. 

What To Serve With This Recipe?

  • Fresh Fruit: Top your Instant Pot oatmeal with a variety of fresh fruit such as sliced bananas, berries, diced apples, or chopped peaches. The natural sweetness and juiciness of the fruit add flavor and texture to your oatmeal.
  • Nuts and Seeds: Sprinkle chopped nuts and seeds such as almonds, walnuts, pecans, pumpkin seeds, or chia seeds on top of your oatmeal for added crunch, protein, and healthy fats.
  • Greek Yogurt: Serve a dollop of creamy Greek yogurt on top of your oatmeal for a boost of protein and creaminess. You can also swirl in some honey or maple syrup for extra sweetness.
