Yes you can cook oatmeal on the stove top, but I’m telling you this is a game changer because you can just walk away!

Here’s a video showing you how to make Instant Pot oatmeal right in the pot, there are pot in pot directions below recipe card too.

Now if you’re looking to make pumpkin oatmeal you will need the following ingredients

  • Pour 1 c. water into your Instant Pot
  • Place dish on top of a trivet
  • Close your lid and steam valve
  • Set to high pressure for 5 minutes
  • Do a quick release

Transfer to a cool bowl (so you don’t burn yourself eating out of the dish inside your pressure cooker).

Apple Instant Pot Oatmeal

  1. Old fashioned oats – not instant
  2. Butter
  3. Water
  4. Brown sugar
  5. Cinnamon
  6. Toppings or add ins
    1. Diced apples
    2. Raisins
    3. Peanut butter

If you’d like to make Instant Pot oatmeal using a pot in pot method this is how you do it.

  1. Use an inner pot that will fit inside your pressure cooker like this 7″ one
  2. Mix in 1 cups of oats & 2 cups of almond milk or water (almond milk makes it creamier) together
  3. Put a trivet at the bottom of your Instant Pot
  4. Pour 1.5 cups of water inside
  5. Lower your bowl with oatmeal inside on to your trivet
  6. Close lid and steam valve and set on high for 5 minutes cooking time
  7. Release the pressure quickly when done

If you have a Crock Pot Express or other brand of pressure cooker the directions should work the same, just needs high pressure for 5 minutes.

Can you double this recipe? Sure! The cook time will remain the same with twice as much. Of course timing is subjective according to just how tender you want it but below is a good base to start with.

  • You can also make it a bit softer by doing a natural release of the steam vs. a quick one. Just keep timing the same and try this as well to create your perfect bowl.
