Oatmeal in the Pressure Cooker or Instapot (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy Free, Egg-Free, Tree Nut-Free, Peanut-Free, and Nightshade-Free)

I really am a creature of habit.  I have oatmeal almost everyday of the year. Yes, hot and hot coffee. When I am traveling I bring along oatmeal packs or eat BoBo Bars.

I had been making batches of oatmeal in the slow cooker until I found that you can make it in the pressure cooker.  It’s easy and fast (under 30 minutes).

I usually make enough for 5-6 days.  Having a breakfast that I just need to heat up makes my mornings go smoother.

My favorite oatmeal to make this way is Bob’s Redmill Gluten Free Steel Cut Oats.  I like to use a one to one ratio for the Oatmeal, one cup water for every one cup of oatmeal.  I usually make a batch of 3 cups of oatmeal which gives me around 6 servings.

I store it in a container in the refrigerator and take some out each morning.  It would work too to store it in glass single serve containers to be reheated individually.

I add a non-dairy milk, cinnamon and brown sugar to enjoy each morning. With hot coffee of course.

  • 3 cups Water


  1. Put Oatmeal and water in the Instapot or pressure cooker.
  2. Set the pressure cooker to 8-10 minutes on the rice setting.
  3. Let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes and then open and enjoy!

I store in the refrigerator and take some out each morning to have for breakfast.  It could also be stored in single serve glass containers to be heated up in the morning, a little bit more time saved in your day. – Susan
