Instant Pot Banana Nut Oatmeal
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 3 servings
  • 1 cup steel cut oats (gluten-free if needed)
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 Bananas, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup almonds, sliced
  • maple syrup to taste
  1. Pour steel cut oats, water, one banana sliced and cinnamon into the Instant Pot and give it a little stir.
  2. Close the lid, seal the vent and press the Manual button. Use the arrows to move down to 3 minutes.
  3. The Instant Pot will come to pressure in about 15 minutes or so. Then it will start counting down as it cooks. When it's done, it will beep. I usually turn it off and allow the pressure to naturally come down (natural pressure release).
  4. After about 10 minutes, open the lid carefully so the steam doesn't burn you. Scoop out your oatmeal into a bowl. Add the extra banana slices, almond slices and maple syrup to your bowl.
