Tips for the Instant Pot banana Peanut Butter steel cut oats

  • If you’re making more or less steel-cut oats, use a 2:1 liquid:oats ratio for better results.
  • Steel-cut oats will thicken as they cool off. You might want to add milk for a thinner texture.
  • This Instant Pot steel-cut oatmeal recipe can be pre-made, cooled off and then refrigerated. When ready to serve, warm up and add a splash of milk or water to loosen it up.
  • We add banana in the Instant Pot to act as a natural sweetener – you’ll better control the amount of sweetness when you add your additional toppings. This makes the banana flavor infuse into the oatmeal, but it also gives a better consistency.
  • Feel free to customize your oatmeal toppings: raisin, dried apricots, chia seeds, coconut flakes…
  • You can substitute any milk variety to add to the oatmeal: dairy, oat, almond, soy, etc…
