Cuisine American, International
Prep Time 5minutes
Cook Time 5minutes
Total Time 30minutes
1.5cupssteel cut oats
1/2-1cupmilk of choice(my favorite are cow's milk and canned coconut milk)
1/4-1/3cupmaple syrup(or honey or agave nectar)
Preheat instant pot by pressing the "saute" button. Once hot, add coconut oil and once melted steel cut oats in order to toast them for a little (about 2 minutes) while constantly stirring.
Add a pinch of salt and water, give it a quick stir and cover with lid and seal.
Press, "cancel" then "manual" and adjust time to 3 minutes and pressure to "high pressure".
Go take a shower or do whatever else you have to do for the next 20-ish minutes. The pot will take about 3-5 minutes to get to pressure, 3 minutes for cooking and 16-18 minutes for natural pressure release).
Once the pin dropped (if it doesn't drop after 20 minutes manually release left over pressure, there should be close to nothing in it anymore), open the lid, add maple syrup and your milk of choice a little at a time while stirring until you reach desired consistency and wetness of your oats. Some like it drier others swimming in milk.
Top with your favorite topping combo (see notes or photos) and dig in!
