This is one of my favorite things to wake up in the morning, my kids literally can smell the toasted oats and come running in. It’s is so effortless, and warm and comforting all at the same time.
This makes for a very easy, healthy, and hearty breakfast, especially in the winter months. It’s also a great addition in the summer months when all of the fruit is available fresh.
Oatmeal, was something that I used to order only out before I got my Instant Pot because seriously, who knew how to cook them, so they were actually good?
Now, that I have my Instant Pot, I’m all set to create some wonderful, healthy, and delicious breakfast.
Add your oatmeal to the Instant Pot.
Then mix in the water and milk
Then add the vanilla, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
