Ingredients needed for this pressure cooker pumpkin oatmeal:

This recipe uses steel cut oats, non fat pumpkin coffee creamer, skim milk, salt, vanilla, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, brown sugar, cinnamon, and chopped pecans.

If you don’t like any of those ingredients you can easily swap them out for something in a flavor you do enjoy just leave them out. If you can’t have pecans just feel free to skip them or add in a crunchy topping that you can have!

Why use the Instant Pot for oatmeal?

Steel cut oats take SO LONG to cook if you don’t use the Instant Pot. I love that I can set it up, go about my business and in just a few minutes have perfectly cooked steel cut oats for breakfast.

The Instant Pot makes fast work of steel cut oats on those days when I don’t want to stand over the stove cooking and stirring!
