Instant Pot Apple Spiced Oatmeal

We don’t do family breakfast often, but when we do, we do it really well…

This was delicious. On the one hand, with the slowness of the pressure thing it took a lot longer to Instant Pot this than it would have taken on the stove…on the other hand, the texture was way nicer than stovetop rolled oats, and it required no babysitting or stirring. So worth it maybe? I haven’t done steel cut oats yet because we love them so much in the slow cooker, but I’ll try that next…


  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats (not instant!)
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup apple butter
  • 2 tbs brown sugar (optional–didn’t really need it!)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger


  1. Add all ingredients to Instant Pot and stir
  2. Set for “Multigrain” for 4 minutes; cook and quick-release the pressure
  3. Stir and serve

Could that have been any easier? It did take something like 15 minutes to come up to pressure, which made this not a quick breakfast, but it was still amazing…
