This oatmeal is sooo yummy and hearty! Soy milk may be used in place of the milk.

Instant Pot® Apple-Rosemary Steel-Cut Oats

Rating: 4 stars
Get ready to shake up your old morning routine with an exciting new flavor of oatmeal. The woodsy taste of rosemary goes so well with the autumn flavors of cinnamon and apple in this steel-cut oatmeal done in minutes! Dried dates give it just enough sweetness, and I loved it with pecans on top.

Sweet Coconut Oatmeal

Rating: 4.64 stars
Oatmeal is only as exciting as the stuff you put into it, since it's boring on its own. This dish is sweet and creamy, a tad exotic, and the kids will love it. If you want, prepare it the day before, refrigerate, and reheat in the microwave. Enjoy!

Greek Yogurt Oatmeal

Rating: 4.14 stars
Oatmeal is a great way to start a day! I have it almost every morning, so to not get bored I add different toppings and vary the ingredients I put in, always healthy and always delicious! Greek yogurt goes fantastically with hot oats and makes it creamier, adds protein, and most important of all makes a standard bowl of oatmeal phenomenal! Sprinkle with some more cinnamon, if you desire.

Carrot Cake Oatmeal

Rating: 4.41 stars
Full of fiber and delicious flavor. A great way to start the day, or a hearty dessert!

Simple Savory Oatmeal

Rating: 4.88 stars
Want something savory in the morning, but needs to be quick and simple? This is it. I'd compare it most readily to a deluxe cheese grits recipe, but this has no cheese--and grits (unless instant) are typically a bunch more work. This was an alternative for my 10-year-old who always wanted eggs and sausage for breakfast. Fruits and brown sugar in the oatmeal wasn't cutting it.
