  • <b>to pressure cook oats</b>
  • Organic Steel Cut Oats - 3/4 cup
  • Water - 1 1/8 cup
  • <b>for heating oats & milk</b>
  • Low-Fat 1% Milk - 2 cups
  • Brown Sugar - 2 tbsp
  • Walnuts - 2 tbsp chopped
  • <b>for garnish</b>
  • Walnuts - chopped
  • Banana - sliced


  • In a pressure cooker,, combine oats and water.
  • Cover, seal, and cook on low-medium heat until the first whistle goes off (should be about 15 minutes). Turn off the stove once done.
  • Once the pressure from the cooker releases, carefully uncover the pressure cooker. Your oats should be perfectly cooked.
  • Add milk.
  • Turn on the stove to low-medium heat, place the lid over the pressure cooker (do not shut), and allow the oats and milk to cook for about 7-8 minutes or so.
  • This is what you should have.
  • Add the brown sugar and walnuts and allow the oats and milk to cook for a few minutes until hot.
  • Turn off the stove, this is what you should have. Allow the oats to sit for a couple minutes.
  • Pour the oatmeal into a serving bowl. Garnish with some more brown sugar. Top with banana and walnuts. Serve hot with a cup of coffee.


* To prepare oats in a regular pot, I prefer to use the 1:3 ratio (oats:water). So for 3/4 cup of oats, I use 2 1/4 cups of water. Once the oats are cooked, you can add milk, nuts, and brown sugar, and cook them for another 7-8 minutes.
** To save time, you can prepare a batch of steel cut oats earlier in the week. When I'm ready for my next bowl of oatmeal, I add the cooked oats and milk to a pot and heat it up. Top the oatmeal with brown sugar, fruit and nuts. You'll have a fresh bowl of oatmeal every time.
