Recipe Card


  • 1 cup Old fashioned or rolled oats
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1 cup water


  • Step 1

    Add the oats, milk, water and salt to the instant pot. Place the lid on the instant pot and seal.

  • Step 2

    Press manual and set the cooking time for 3 minutes on high. Make sure the pressure valve is sealed. Once the instant pot beeps that the cooking time is up, let the oatmeal sit in the pot for 15-20 minutes for the pressure to naturally release, then flip the pressure valve to vent to release any remaining pressure.

  • Step 3

    Enjoy immediately with toppings of your choice. If you like it creamier you can add an extra splash of milk. Leftover oatmeal can be refrigerated in a tight compartment for 3-5 days.
