What Type of Oatmeal is Best for Making Instant Pot Oatmeal Recipe 

Oatmeal comes in a few different forms and taste a little different. Such as Steel Cut, Rolled and Instant. In this recipe I specifically use rolled oats. They are steamed first and then flattened. They are able to absorb the flavor well while still holding their shape.

Alternatively, Steel Cut oats are just chopped and retain their shape well and have a nuttier flavor. You can definitely use these in the recipe if you prefer.

Instant oatmeal is the most processed variety and is made for cooking fast. They are not really desirable for this recipe as they would become very mushy.

    This recipe is SO delicious and super easy! It takes only a few minutes to put this together and it’s done really quickly! I like old fashioned oats so much more than quick oats – it’s creamier.
