Instant Pot Coconut Steel Oats

 

I like the chewiness of steel oats but cooking them on the stove can take awhile.  Being able to cook them in about 10 minutes using the Instant Pot makes having a dish of these handy throughout the week doable. 

Using a full coconut milk (found in the can) gives a richness to the breakfast cereal.

  3. Into a 4 cup measuring cup - empty can of coconut milk and add enough water to measure 3 cups.

  5. Lock on Lid and close Pressure Valve. Cook for 8 minutes on the Manual Setting. When Beep sounds, wait 10 minutes and then release the remaining pressure.
  6. Remove Lid and stir in milk, sweetener and cinnamon. More milk can be used if you like a thinner oat cereal.

Instant Pot – Amazon Deal of the Day


Untitled design-18

 

Oh Instant Pot – how do I love thee? Here is my why? – it helps me cook nutritious food in less time.  No one is more surprised than me to hear myself say this about a pressure cooker – I was fearful of what I knew about these pots of the past but I have successfully made rice, steel oats, teriyaki chicken, beefy lentil chili, whole chicken, roast, pinto beans, quinoa, cheesecake, caramel sauce, soups, yogurt, etc successfully.  No more watching rice so it doesn’t bowl over.  I can cook something and keep it warm for up to 12 hours.  I can saute my onions, etc in the same pan.  It has a slow cooker feature (haven’t used that).  It also has 10 safety features.  I bought mine when it was offered on special but knowing what I know now – I would pay full price for this appliance. I don’t say that very often.  No longer do I fear cooking with pressure – in fact, it’s taken some of the pressure of preparing meals off.

Depending on what model you decide on – this appliance has other features beside being a pressure cooker…slow cooker, saute, etc.

Apple & Yogurt Breakfast Combo

This is probably the shortest post I have created on the blog.  It is very easy as a blogger to fret over the words, the pictures, are my directions clear?, etc.   When I was making my breakfast this morning I challenged myself to write a post in under 15 minutes.   I wanted to share it with you because it has protein from the almond butter, macadamia nuts and greek yogurt, whole grain from the granola, and the good-for-you nutrients from the apple.

Note:  To add a little extra sparkle – I did a light dusting of pink colored sugar.  (I know not nutritious but I did it anyway – there’s not enough to hurt anything plus sparkle is good.)

What is your favorite nutritious breakfast to make?  Maybe we can give each other some new ideas.  Okay time is up – I’m pressing publish.
