Instant Pot Oatmeal With Apples And Cinnamon

The best part about oatmeal is that you can add just about anything to it. Feel like topping your breakfast with a handful of crushed pecans? Wonderful! Have at it! Want to sprinkle in some yellow raisins? Who is going to stop you? Not me.

I become somewhat of a mad scientist in the mornings and to be honest with you, it’s sort of one of my favorite parts of the day because I really look forward to the end results – EATING everything I mesh together. Especially when I make Instant Pot oatmeal with apples and cinnamon. YUM!

How To Make Instant Pot Oatmeal With Apples And Cinnamon

This recipe for Instant Pot oatmeal with apples and cinnamon is easier than you think. Add water, oatmeal, apple, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg to an Instant Pot and mix well. Close your lid and seal shut. Now, close the pressure release valve.

Set the Instant Pot to manual, high pressure for 5 minutes. When the cooking cycle is complete, let the pressure naturally release for 10 minutes. The longest part about this recipe is just waiting for the pressure to release – just like all PC recipes! 🙂

Steel Cut Oats Variation

If you’d like to use steel cut oats in this apple cinnamon Instant Pot oatmeal, go for it! You will just need to make a slight adjustment to the above recipe. Use 1 cup dry steel cut oats and 3 cups of water.

You could also look up what your preferred manufacturer has to say about IP ratios. I’m sure they have something on their website. But this is typically what I use when making this pressure cooker breakfast.
