Ok, so I’m obsessed with my Instant Pot…do you have one yet??! If you don’t I’ll share below which one I have and where to get one. They are amazing when cooking anything FAST! I mean I have been a slow cooker person for years and years and still love it if I am away all day and can throw it in and not touch it, but sometimes I am last minute in what I want to eat and this cooks almost everything in less than 30 minutes, and just 5 minutes for this Instant Pot oatmeal that I packed with diced apples and cinnamon too. It’s one of our favorite breakfast Instant Pot recipes! (originally published 2/17)
We love oatmeal in the morning, especially on the weekends. Yes my kids even give an “MMmmmmmm” when they see that’s what we are having!
With all the goodies you can add in oatmeal can be quite flavorful as well as a healthy breakfast option.
This cinnamon apple oatmeal recipe is great, and could also include raisins as well if you liked those (I added some to the top instead of cooking them within because Daddy doesn’t care for them).
It just takes 5 minutes in your Instant Pot, this is the one I have.
Here’s a video showing you how to make it right in the pot, there are pot in pot directions below recipe card too.

- 1 c oats use steel oats if you like a more turgid oatmeal
- 2 1/2 c water
- 1 c apple skinned and diced
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 3 tbsp butter
- pinch cinnamon
- raisins optional
Put Instant Pot or pressure cooker on manual high pressure.
Add butter and allow to melt. Turn Instant Pot off...important step to avoid "burn" message from showing up.
Add water, oats, brown sugar, apples, cinnamon and raisins if desired. Stir
Put lid on and close steam valve, set to manual high pressure for 5 minutes, do a quick release, open and serve.
If you’d like to make Instant Pot oatmeal using a pot in pot method this is how you do it.
- Use an inner pot that will fit inside your pressure cooker like this 7″ one
- Mix in 1 cups of oats & 2 cups of almond milk or water (almond milk makes it creamier) together
- Put a trivet at the bottom of your Instant Pot
- Pour 1.5 c. water in
- Lower your bowl with oatmeal inside on to your trivet
- Close lid and steam valve and set on high for 5 minutes
- Do a quick release and serve.
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.
