One of our favorite breakfast meals for breakfast is steel cut oats, but I never cooked them because it took so long standing at the stove to make sure they didn't stick to the pan. But oh have times have changed!
I discovered the Instant Pot (click on the picture below for more information) and it has revolutionized the way I cook, especially steel cut oats! If you've never used an Instant Pot, you need to! But that's for another post.....
My recipe for 2 servings is simple:
1/2 cup steel cut oats, rinsed
1/2 cup vanilla hempseed milk
1 cup filtered water
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla
pinch of himalaya sea salt
Pul all the above into the Instant Pot, secure the lid, set it on manual pressure for 3 minutes and walk away! It's that easy! It takes a few minutes to build up pressure then it cooks for 3 minutes. Once it's finished you let the pressure naturally release (meaning you don't open the lid) for about 15 minutes. And then you have perfectly cooked steel cut oats with no hassle!
After the pressure is released we love to add 2 drops of dōTERRA Cinnamon Bark oil to the pot and stir. Then we add some local honey or brown sugar and hemp seeds, bits of dried fruit, walnuts or pecans. It makes a wonderful, filling and very healthy breakfast!
