instant pot maple walnut oatmeal

I love my electric pressure cooker! I bought the Pampered Chef brand and all it's available accessories. I use it quite frequently and always with wonderful results! This oatmeal is so creamy with crunchy walnuts dotted throughout. It is a thinner oatmeal than if you made one of those instant oatmeal packets. Sometimes I add raisins, which plump up during cooking! My family will only eat oatmeal fixed this way now since I first made this a few years ago!

How To Make instant pot maple walnut oatmeal

  • Matching silicone lid on the ceramic pot accessory, sitting on the matching sling
    In a pot type accessory mix together all the ingredients. Cover with foil or the matching lid to the accessory.
  • Ceramic pot accessory with matching silicone lid and sling, sitting on the trivet in the insert.
    Place trivet in the instant pot insert, pour in 1 cup of water. Lower pot onto trivet using a sling. (If you don't have a sling you can make one out of foil.)
  • Pressure cooker set to high pressure for 13 minutes
    Place lid on Instant Pot, make sure it is in the sealing position. Turn on high pressure for 13 minutes.
  • It has been five minutes on slow release. Time to do a quick release.
    Allow to slow release for at least 5 minutes. If left longer it won't hurt anything. Do a quick release to release any pressure left.
  • Oatmeal right after it was stirred after removing from pressure cooker. Time to let rest.
    Remove pot carefully. Remove lid and stir well, but carefully if your pot is really full. Allow to stand for 5 minutes, it will thicken up some in this time. Enjoy!
