This is one of the easiest breakfast ideas, and it’s so quick, it’s perfect for those busy mornings. My youngest son has never met a cup of steel-cut oatmeal that he hasn’t liked, so this breakfast is perfect for him, and the use of cinnamon and brown sugar, makes it sweet, but not unhealthy, which is a great balance.
What really works well in this recipe is the use of rolled oats.
If you aren’t familiar with oats, there are three main types, steel-cut, rolled and instant oats. The main difference in all three types is really just the level of processing each oat has gone through. The result of how much the food company has processed your food affects the cooking time of each oat.
Steel-cut oats take the longest to cook, that is because they have been chopped from the whole oat. It has the texture uncooked of being similar to rice. It is a very hearty oat. I haven’t experienced much with cooking steel oats in the Air Fryer, but they do wonderfully in the Instant Pot.
The third type of oats is quick or instant oats. These are the ones that are already precooked and dried, they are the ones you ate, that came in packages, ready to eat, that you just added water to. Do you remember those? I think I had those almost every day as a child.
This recipe that I am showing you today, is easily changed out for other fruits, especially as the summer is coming, and your choice of fresh fruits, will increase.
Here are some simple steps, so you can make this in your very own Instant Pot,
