How do you make healthy oatmeal?

Oatmeal is a really great healthy breakfast recipe. You can add in whatever you want, make it taste however you want, and even change the nutrition level based on what you put in. Using gluten-free oats definitely helps to keep it healthy, especially for those with gluten intolerance.

If you really want to make your apple oatmeal healthy, skip the butter. Most of the ingredients are just for flavor and won’t ruin the nutritional content. Top your apple pie instant pot oatmeal with extra apples and even a handful of walnuts to make it even healthier (and tastier!).

  • 1 tablespoon salted butter
  • 1 cup Bob's Red Mill Steel Cut Oats not quick cooking
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup apple cider if you don't have apple cider, you can skip this and use 2 1/2 cups water total
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 large apple peeled and cored, diced
  • fresh whipped cream walnuts, and diced apple as garnish (if desired)
  1. Set your pressure cooker (click HERE (affiliate) if you need to buy one!) to saute and add in butter. Allow butter to melt, spreading it across the bottom of the instant pot.
  2. Add in the oats and stir to coat in the butter. Stir continuously for approximately 2 minutes or until the oats are starting to toast.
  3. Pour in the water, cider, brown sugar, cinnamon, and apple. Stir to combine.
  4. Switch instant pot to "pressure cook" and set for 8 minutes.
  5. When it's done cooking, allow to sit closed for 5 minutes, naturally releasing some of the steam. Then press the release and allow the remaining steam to leave the pot.
  6. Open the pot (be careful!) and stir to freshen up the oatmeal. Doesn't it smell amazing?!
  7. Serve hot topped with fresh whipped cream, more diced apples, and walnuts if desired.
  8. Enjoy!

Not sure what I did wrong but the oats for the apple pie oatmeal turned out crunchy still. Like they didn't cook.
    Becky Hardin
    Did you use the steel cut oats and did your instant pot seem to get really hot/let out steam? I'm so sorry I'm not sure! I have made this multiple times with no problems. I'm so sorry I'm not more help :(
Shoot i read that as vinegar...too early. my bad
    Becky Hardin
    This happens more than you'd think actually. I'm sure it tasted awful!! I'm sorry that happened but hope you love it next time you make it :)
I’m maki this reci now. I am using my IP Duo 7-in-1 and it has a sett f porrige which in the manu also says to use for oatmeal. So I am us that setTing. I am not using actual oatmeal. I am using steel cut oats and every ingredient you recommended in your recipe. I hope it turns out alright. It is cooking at high pressure for 9 minutes because I read revieWs that some experienced crunchy oats and I really don’t want that result. Assume that this turned out perfectly and was a big hit with my 3.5 year old and myself unless I Return with additional feedback. Thanks for this recipe!

Thank you for sharing this article. I happen to be a fan of oatmeal.
If using rolled oats, how much would you use? I have a breakfast on Saturday, and I would like to do an apple and cinnamon oatmeal. Thanks in advance.
