Instant Pot Steel Cut Oatmeal – an easy & foolproof recipe for light and fluffy steel cut oats cooked perfectly in an electric pressure cooker. Best of all, it’s gluten free, vegan and you can customize it with your favorite fruit or berries! Plus instructions with rolled oats.

I am a big fan of oatmeal and thankfully so are my kiddos. While we love classic steel cut and rolled oats cooked on the stovetop, it’s fun to switch things up here and there by making variations of overnight oats or baked oatmeal.

1 cup steel cut oats use gluten free as needed
3 cups almond milk can also use water if you prefer
Optional: cinnamon sweetener (honey, maple syrup) vanilla extract, pinch of salt
Toppings of your choice: berries chia seeds, nut butter, splash of milk
ground cinnamon
sweetener honey, agave, or maple syrup
pure vanilla extract
pinch of salt
chia seeds
nut butter
splash of milk
Instant Pot (I use a 6 Quart DUO)


To avoid sticking, lightly coat the inner pot of your Instant Pot with coconut oil or cooking spray.
Add oats into the Instant Pot followed by milk.
Secure the lid and close the vent.
Press the MANUAL (or PRESSURE COOKER for newer Instant Pot models) button and set to 4 minutes.
After the oats finish cooking, allow the pressure to release naturally (about 10-15 minutes).
After the pressure releases, open the lid and give the oatmeal a good stir. Any extra liquid will absorb as it cools.
Add cinnamon, sweetener or other additions you like.
Top oatmeal with fresh fruit, nut butter, a splash of milk, or any other toppings you like.
I use 2 cups of Steel Cut Oats + 5 cups of milk or water and set to 5 minutes. I do NOT recommend making a larger batch at once as it causes the outer parts to burn when I tried.
3 cups of rolled oats + 5 1/2 cups of water - set for 4 minutes and allow to naturally release for 15-20 minutes. Stir.

Recipe Notes

***COOK TIME: Totally hands off 4 minutes of cooking process but it takes time for the pressure cooker to come up to pressure and to let the instant pot release naturally for at least 12 minutes. I would plan for 30 minutes start to finish for this oatmeal to be on your table.
