Instant Pot Steel Cut Oatmeal – an easy recipe for light and fluffy steel cut oats cooked in an electric pressure cooker. Best of all, it’s gluten free, vegan and you can customize it with your favorite fruit or berries!
I’m a big fan of oatmeal and thankfully so are my kiddos. While we love classic steel cut and rolled oats cooked on the stovetop, it’s fun to switch things up here and there by making variations of overnight oats or baked oatmeal.
But my new favorite way to make it recently has been in my Instant Pot (an electric pressure cooker). They were kind enough to send me one to test out and you guys!! I am SO in love!!

If you’ve got kiddos and they are early risers that wake up hangry like mine, making steel cut oatmeal (and rice) in the Instant Pot is a total. GAME. changer! SO easy!!
Instant Pot Steel Cut Oatmeal
To make steel cut oatmeal in an Instant Pot, you literally just toss in the ingredients and it takes ONLY 3 minutes of cooking time. The best part of all is that you don’t need to stir your oatmeal at 6 in the morning. It’s totally hands off!
Now if you are familiar with an Instant Pot, you do have to keep in mind that it takes the cooker some time to come up to pressure. This can take about 5 minutes. Plus you need to factor in the additional time it takes for the pressure to release naturally – about 12 minutes. So I would plan for 30 minutes start to finish for this oatmeal to be on your table.
But the end results are totally worth it! You’ll get oatmeal that cooks up perfectly light and fluffy.
And while you can totally jazz up your oatmeal with sweeteners or any spices you like, this simple recipe contains just two main ingredients – almond milk and steel cut oats.
Just add your favorite toppings and you’re good to go!
