My kids love breakfast, and this InstantPot Oatmeal is one of their most-asked-for dishes! Because you can just dump the ingredients and walk away, this is perfect for those busy mornings when you still want to have a good hearty meal.

About a year ago, my sweet husband bought me an InstantPot. Everyone had been raving about them, and I honestly used a pressure cooker on the stove top for a few meals already, so I thought I’d jump on the IP bandwagon.
Now, I’m not one of those people who makes every single thing in my InstantPot, nor do I want to. Many dishes cook faster or taste better cooked on the stove top or in the oven. But, if you’re looking for a meal that you can cook quickly without babysitting it, InstantPot meals are great!
On a busy morning, I like to make this InstantPot Oatmeal for my kids. It’s a nice, hearty meal that really fills them up!
The steal cut oats hold up really well in the InstantPot, and they cook way faster than they do on the stovetop.
But my favorite part of this meal is that I can dump in all the ingredients, turn on the IP, and walk away to get the rest of our morning moving.
During the school year, I’ll set up the InstantPot, turn it on, and then go wake up the kids. By the time they’re done getting showered and dressed, breakfast is ready, and I didn’t have to stand over it!
This recipe is easy, delicious, and so much more nutritious than Pop-Tarts! LOL
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Steal cut oats
- brown sugar
- pure vanilla extract
Literally dump all the ingredients in the InstantPot, give it a stir, put on the lid, and set the timer for 10 minutes on high pressure.
I have used the Quick Release when we’re in a time crunch in the morning, but I’ve also done a Slow Release when we’re not quite ready to eat. Both work well and neither changes the taste of the breakfast!
You can serve your InstantPot oatmeal with some beautiful blueberries, or you can pour some milk over top and serve it that way!
Full disclosure….my picture above is absolutely stunning, but this is how my kids actually get their InstantPot Oatmeal:
