Instructions

INSTANT POT METHOD:

  1. To avoid sticking, lightly coat the inner pot of your Instant Pot with coconut oil or cooking spray.
  2. Add oats into the Instant Pot followed by liquid. Stir in pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon.
  3. Secure the lid and turn the valve to SEALING.
  4. Press the MANUAL (or PRESSURE COOKER for newer Instant Pot models) button and set to 4 minutes.
  5. After the oats finish cooking, allow the pressure to release naturally (about 10-15 minutes).
  6. After the pressure releases, open the lid and give the oatmeal a good stir. Any extra liquid will absorb as it cools. Stir in the sweetener and pumpkin puree.
  7. Divide into bowls and top each with more pumpkin seeds, cranberries and milk, if desired.

STOVE-TOP METHOD:

  1. Combine oats and liquid in a medium pot over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and a gentle simmer. Do not leave unattended.

  2. Continue simmering until thickened and desired creaminess, about 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally and scraping along the bottom of the pan to prevent sticking. Remove from heat.

  3. Stir in pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, sweeteners and add-ins of your choice.

    Divide into bowls and top each with more pumpkin seeds, cranberries and milk, if desired.
