Instant Pot Steel Cut Oats are an easy healthy breakfast, great for meal prep but also doable on a weekday morning. Once you start the pressure cooker, this recipe is completely hands off. Steel cut oats cook perfectly with only 4 minutes under pressure—no need to stand by the stove and stir constantly. With so many topping options, this breakfast never gets boring.
Grease Instant Pot (or electric pressure cooker) with neutral or butter-flavored cooking spray.
Add oats and 4 cups water to the Instant Pot.
Close lid and make sure vent is closed. Set to cook on high pressure for 4 minutes.
Wait 15 minutes for a natural pressure release. Then safely open the vent to release any remaining pressure. Stir the oats and serve.
