BURN notice: If you have a sensitive Instant Pot, you may get the burn notice with this recipe. Here’s what to try if that happens: 1) Add the maple syrup after pressure cooking. With more sensitive models, the sugar can crystallize and cause the Burn notice. 2) Add additional 1/4 cup of liquid and let the oats soak for 10 minutes before pressure cooking. Thank you readers for helping me figure this out!
Easily double or triple this recipe to make more servings at a time. The cook time remains the same, however with more liquid, the Instant Pot will take a little more time to come to pressure. This recipe is based on the cook times provided in the Instant Pot Manual. Nutrition information estimated with My Fitness Pal.
Oats: This recipe has only been tested with rolled oats. I have NOT tested quick cooking oats but I believe they will take the same amount of time. For steel cut oats, pressure cook for 6 minutes with a 10 minute Natural Pressure Release.
I have only tested this recipe with a 6-quart Instant Pot, and the recipe may not work with other Instant Pot sizes. Please keep in mind that due to the nature of pressure cooking there may be inconsistencies from small variations in ingredients or altitude. Try it and see what works best for you!
