How To Make Steel Cut Oats In A Pressure Cooker

Making steel cut oats on the stovetop is a no-brainer, but you may not have a clue about how to make steel cut oats in a pressure cooker. In all honesty, it’s actually easier than making them on the stovetop! With the Instant Pot, you just add the ingredients then set it and forget and the next thing you know, breakfast is ready.

Prep time: 5-10 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes + time to come to pressure
Serves: 4


3¼ c. water
1 c. steel cut oats
2 c. coconut or Greek yogurt
1½ T. chia seeds
1 T. maple syrup
1 c. hulled and sliced strawberries
1 c. rinsed and dried blueberries



  • Liberally spray the inner pot of the Instant Pot with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Add the water and steel cut oats and stir thoroughly to combine. Lock the lid into place and make sure the pressure valve is set to the “Sealing” position.
  • Choose the “Manual” setting and select the high pressure setting. Set the cook time to 10 minutes.
  • While the oats are cooking, add the yogurt, maple syrup and chia seeds to a small bowl and stir thoroughly to combine.
  • When the cook time is complete, immediately turn off the Instant Pot in order to prevent scorching. Do a natural release for 15 minutes, and then a manual release to release any remaining pressure.
  • Remove the lid from the Instant Pot and stir the oats to combine. Ladle the cooked oatmeal into individual serving bowls and top with the coconut or Greek yogurt mixture.
  • Top the yogurt mixture with the blueberries and strawberries and serve with additional maple syrup. Enjoy!
