Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats Recipe

October 7, 2022


  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 1 apple, or more to taste, chopped
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Makes 4 servings


  1. Combine water, oats, apple, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg in a multi-functional pressure cooker. Close and lock the lid. Seal vent. Select Manual function; set timer for 5 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
  2. Release pressure using the natural-release method, about 10 minutes. This is important because if you release through the vent, the oats can jam up the vent.
  3.  Release remaining pressure naturally.
  4. Store for 1 week and reheat portions as desired on the stove in the microwave when you are in a rush


  • Nut milk of choice to add creaminess
  • ½ tbsp ground flaxseeds or ground psyllium husk (great prebiotic!)
  • Nut butter ½-1 tsp or 4-6 crumbled walnuts if you like a crunch
  • Manuka honey ½ tsp (added immune benefit)
  • Frozen berries (¼ cup wild blueberries are our favourite)
