Instant Pot Oatmeal With Fruit
Have I mentioned how in love with my Instant Pot I am? I love making Instant Pot Oatmeal, it's quick and easy and when you add in whatever fruit you have in the house at the time it makes a great breakfast, lunch, or even a breakfast for dinner.
I also like yogurt with my oatmeal (I know I'm not the only one!) so I will also make Instant Pot Yogurt. I also recently had a huge batch of blueberries and I made Instant Pot Blueberry Jam and it is sooooo addicting!
Now let's talk toppings! Right now I'm slightly addicted to blueberries in my oatmeal. We are have used strawberries, peaches, bananas, apples, and upon my oldest request, grapes. For a special treat, we will add in chocolate chips
1 Cup Steel Cut Oats
3 Cups Water
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar (Optional but recommended!)
1 Tbs Cinnamon (Optional)
Toppings as Desired (Pomegranates and Almonds Shown)
To start place the oats and water in the Instant Pot, then add in the sugar and cinnamon, if you are using, then stir them all together. Then place and lock the lid on the pot.
Make sure the lid is locked and the vent is closed. Then set to the manual setting for 3 min. Once time
Once time is up, allow the pressure to release naturally. Once all the pressure is released open the lid and stir well. There should be excess liquid in the pot. This will absorb in just a few moments as it cools. Top as desired and serve hot.

I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
