Oatmeal, a Healthy Breakfast
By :Christy Emanuel
Print Recipe
One of our family's favorite breakfasts is this very simple Apple Cinnamon Rolled Oats. My kids love it, its super healthy, and it is unbelievably simple to make. I simply throw all of the ingredients into our Instant Pot, push a button, and walk away! I have even set the timer the night before, so it's ready when we get up.

    I added ½ tsp. Salt and used ¼ tsp. Cinnamon. Perfect.
    The rice setting on my IP set automatically to 10 Minutes which seems very long to me so i just used Manual for 3 minutes.

    I followed this recipe exactly using rice setting 10 minutes. It never came up to pressure or started countdown. Ended up cancelling & opening pot Oatmeal was stuck horribly on bottom but apples were still crunchy.

    Never reached pressure, never started countdown, and ended up with a bunch on burnt oats stuck to the bottom of the pot. This one gets 1 star.

    Since the comments varied, I looked up a few recipes on Pinterest to derive the best approach. I ended up putting my oatmeal mix into a 7 cup Pyrex bowl and using the trivet underneath, rather than cooking in the insert. Used 2 cup water beneath the trivet, and in my bowl, I had 2c old fashioned rolled oats, 3c water, 1c half & half, 2 peeled/diced apples, 1/2c chopped walnuts, 1tsp cinnamon, 1tbsp butter cut into small pieces. Stir to mix. Manual 4 minutes with NPR. Perfect.

    I used the recipe per the directions and it turned out perfect! I added a dash of salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg before cooking. And added honey and a little brown sugar when it was finished cooking to sweeten it up a little. Turned out fantastic and ended up being a weeks worth of breakfasts for me!

    It came out mushy, overdone, and stuck to the pan. I wonder if which size Instant Pot you use, makes a difference. Mine is an 8 quart.

    1 1/4 cup water
    1/2 tsp butter
    Manual 10 minutes
    NPR 10 minutes

    I used the tip which was to use 5 cups of water and the multigrain button. Consistency was good with some minor burning on the bottom. But 40 minutes to cook oatmeal is anything but instant. Sorry beginner here and just trying to learn the ropes.

    My 8 quart pot burned this recipe. I saw that another user reduced cooking time to four minutes on the manual setting. I tried that, and the oatmeal is mushy and burned to the bottom. Next time I will try three minutes on manual setting. I wish that the recipes had an adjustment instruction for 8 quart pot. I apologize for any typos, the app covers the screen with the keyboard, so I cannot see what I am typing. I

    Instant Pot Mini (3-quart). Changed recipe: 1 cup old-fashioned oats and 2-1/2 cups water, extra water was for dried fruit (cranberries and raisins), 1 apple and lots of cinnamon. To avoid sticking, I sprayed the bottom of the Instant Pot container with olive oil and added about a tablespoon of butter to ingredients. Used rice setting, when done it beeped once and timer read 14, was careful not to wait to do a quick release. Perfect, minimal sticking and plently of leftovers for one person.
