Steel Cut Oats in 5 Minutes

Steel cut oats have always been such a difficult thing for me to make. I have tried making it several times on the stove top but somehow I always burn them. When I soak it overnight, the next day I still burn it again.

So I thought to myself, why not use my instant pot and reduce the amount of times I have to handle the oats. And thus marked the beginning of my steel cut oats obsession. Using the instant pot has transformed my steel cut oats game; plus it is super quick to make.

Makes 2 servings


  • 1 cup steal cut oats
  • 2.5 cups water
  • a handful of dried dates chopped
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • A splash of vanilla essence


  1. Add all your ingredients in the instant pot and cook on manual for 5 minutes.
  2. Top with your favourite fruits and serve with some plant based milk
