Single Serving Instant Pot Steel Cut Oatmeal Recipe
I love steel cut oats! But I don’t eat them very often because I’m too busy in the morning to let them cook on the stove top for 30 minutes. However, now that I have an Instant Pot I can cook them in 15 minutes from start to finish. I usually eat breakfast by myself in the morning because I get my kids off to school and then I exercise and then I eat breakfast. So I only really need to make one serving of steel cut oats.
I tried several times to get this recipe exactly right in the Instant Pot. What I found out was that steel cut oats like to stick to the bottom of the pot. By simply lightly spraying the bottom of the pot with non-stick cooking spray I was able to eliminate that problem. I also learned that the ratio of oats to water/milk is a little off compared to what it would be if you were making a big batch. As I adjusted the ratio, they turned out perfectly creamy and cooked through. This is the perfect breakfast to throw in the Instant Pot right before getting into the shower in the morning. Then when you’re out of the shower, your breakfast will be waiting for you.

Make one serving of chewy and hearty steel cuts oats easily in your Instant Pot in 15 minutes from start to finish.
5 minPrep Time
10 minCook Time
15 minTotal Time
- 1/3 cup steel cut oats (not the quick cooking kind)
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
- Lightly spray the bottom of your Instant Pot with non-stick cooking spray.
- Add in the oats, milk, water and brown sugar. Stir.
- Cover the pressure cooker and make sure the valve is on "sealing." Push the manual button and set the timer for 10 minutes.
- Once the timer beeps turn the valve from sealing to "venting." As soon as the pressure is released you can open the Instant Pot and spoon your oatmeal into a bowl. I like to eat mine with sliced bananas and a splash of milk.
This recipe took 15 minutes from start to finish. My Instant Pot took about 5 minutes to come to pressure and then 10 minutes of cooking time.
I used this 6 quart Instant Pot for this recipe.
