Cherry and Chocolate Chip Oatmeal
By :No Pressure Cookbook by Laurel Randolph
Print Recipe
One dish I make over and over in the pressure cooker is steel-cut oatmeal. It’s hands-off and there’s no scorching on the bottom of the pot when I get distracted and walk away for five minutes. For a flavorful rendition, combine dark chocolate with plump, fresh cherries. Serve with a dollop of plain or vanilla yogurt for a real breakfast treat.

Instructions
  1. GREASE the bottom half of your Instant Pot with cooking spray or butter. Add the oats, water, salt, and nutmeg and stir. Secure the lid.
  2. COOK at high pressure for 15 minutes and use a natural release.
  3. ADD the maple syrup and vanilla and stir until creamy. Add brown sugar if you’d like your oatmeal sweeter (keep in mind that the chocolate and cherries will add some sweetness).
  4. TOP each serving with chocolate chips and fresh cherries and serve.
  5. P.S. If it isn’t cherry season, replace the fresh cherries with 1/2 cup dried cherries.
