Yes, I use my instant pot for breakfasts, lunches and dinner. In fact, if my kids ask for a snack after school I break out the for some cookies and milk. Just kidding, but really, there is basically no end to the meals you can create in this workhorse appliance and breakfast is no exception. During the busiest morning rush, you can still dump your ingredients and walk away to get your kids dressed for school, shower, walk the dog or whatever tasks are on your to-do list. I don’t have the time (or the patience) to stir a pot of oatmeal on the stove most mornings, but this Instant Pot Oatmeal is fast and delicious with no hovering over the stovetop.
Oatmeal in the Instant Pot
6 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
10 cups water
¼ cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp salt
¼ cup craisins
1 tbls cinnamon
1 Fuji apple, finely diced
2 tsp vanilla extract
Spray the bottom of your inner pot with cooking spray and add all the ingredients. Give the contents a few thorough stirs and close the lid, turning the pressure valve to seal. Set to manual 5 minutes and let it come down from pressure naturally. It will be ready and delicious in about 45 minutes (or less).
Is it possible you haven’t purchased an Instant Pot yet? I can only imagine how I’d survive our busy mealtimes without my secret weapon!
