Single Serving Instant Pot Steel Cut Oatmeal Recipe

  • Author: 365 Days of Slow Cooking
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 1 serving 1x


Make one serving of chewy and hearty steel cuts oats easily in your Instant Pot in 15 minutes from start to finish.


  • 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


  1. Lightly spray the bottom of your Instant Pot with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Add in the oats, milk, water and brown sugar. Stir.
  3. Cover the pressure cooker and make sure the valve is on “sealing.” Push the manual button and set the timer for 10 minutes.
  4. 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.
