Maple Pecan Instant Pot Steel Cut Oatmeal makes a nutritious and hearty breakfast that can keep you full for hours. Pair it with a healthy protein source and you’ve got a great well-rounded meal!
The Recipe Redux theme this month is all about our favorite kitchen tool or gadget. Hands down, my Instant Pot is my newest cooking gadget obsession. If you don’t have an Instant Pot, this recipe will work fine in a regular pressure cooker. If you do have an Instant Pot, then you know exactly what I’m talking about. How easy and amazing is this cooking tool?!! Every recipe turns out great that I’ve tried and I’m learning every day just how much this multi-purpose cooker can do.
One thing that I would suggest is having a separate silicone ring for cooking grains and desserts and another for all of your savory dishes. The rings tend to hold onto the aroma of whatever you’re cooking, even after being cleaned. You don’t want your oats tasting like leftover pot roast, definitely not the most appealing combo. 😉

Maple Pecan Instant Pot Steel Cut Oatmeal
Steel cut oatmeal cooks quickly in the Instant Pot. You only need 3 minutes on the manual high pressure setting.
Look at how creamy and amazing these oats turns out!
Top with toasted pecans and an extra drizzle of your favorite natural maple syrup. You can also leave out the syrup in this recipe and add chopped apples, raisins or dates for another natural sweetener alternative. Sprinkle with cinnamon and enjoy. This recipe can be so versatile.

- Spray the inside of the Instant Pot with cooking spray. Add all ingredients, except pecans, and stir to mix. Set Instant Pot on Manual high pressure for 3 minutes.

Add pecans to the dry skillet (no oil) and stir occasionally for 3-5 minutes until nuts are fragrant and lightly toasted.
