  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cups steel cut oats
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups 1% milk
  • 1 cup Craisins
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon - plus a light dusting on top of bowls
  • optional toppings - nuts, brown sugar, fruit
  1. Turn your instant pot to the sauté setting. Add butter and stir until melted. Then add steel cut oats, and sauté for about 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently.

  2. Pour the water and vanilla into the IP, and stir. Change the setting to Pressure Cook on high for 8 minutes, and secure lid with the vent closed. 

  3. When pressure cooking is done, let the instant pot release naturally for five minutes. Then do a quick release.

  4. Remove lid and add milk, Craisins, and cinnamon. Stir well, and let the oats sit for about 20-30 minutes.

  5. Spoon oats into individual serving bowls, and sprinkle with additional cinnamon to serve.
