We make this recipe almost every weekend. My husband and I each have a bowl, and then there are leftovers for the week. It is an excellent recipe as written, but since we make it all the time, we have made many modifications, including adding raisins or dried cherries instead of the apples. Read More

5.25.18 Although we love oatmeal honestly we re not huge steel cut oats fans but I keep trying to acquire a taste for them. Consistency was pretty thick so I did add some vanilla almond milk and some maple syrup and I must say I liked it MUCH better after the addition of those two ingredients. We re not big into sweetness these days but I think this needed some sweetness and the maple syrup took care of that. I like the combo of ingredients in this recipe they partnered well just didn t care for the texture of the oats. I plan to try this again with regular oatmeal and if it turns out more to our satisfaction I ll do an update for any other folks who also may not be steel cut oats fans. It certainly is super simple to make and that I love. I m the first reviewer and I don t want to discourage anybody from trying this. My comments are based on our personal taste preferences. Pamela Wurtz thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More

I really like steel cut oats and thought this was the perfect consistency. I wish I had cut my apples in a bit bigger chunks; I diced them rather small. My problem with this recipe was the amount of salt called for. I should have known better but I was still tired this morning and I put in the full 1/2 tsp salt. It was too salty for me. I added a couple tablespoons of brown sugar which helped. I wouldn't add more than an 1/8 tsp of salt in the future. I added some half and half on top which is a nice touch and they were okay.

After reading the reviews and made these modifications...I had regular oats (not steel cut) so I set the pressure for 5 minutes but didn't wait until the pressure released naturally. I manually released the pressure and I did not have the burned or stuck to the bottom of the pan and mentioned by Erin. I only added the maple syrup to the recipe. It came out well and I will make it this way again. Read More

I made the recipe and it turned out a little runny. I let it sit for a minute, and it thickened up. I added some sugar to it and that was all it needed. I would add a little less water than what was called for. Read More

Delicious! I used the "delay start" function on my Instant Pot so they were hot and ready when we got up in the morning. I like my oats a little softer, so I used a little longer cooking time. Read More
