Nothing beats a hearty bowl of oatmeal on a chilly morning. Even better if it’s already made!

In fact, oatmeal is one of my favorite carbs because unlike sugary cereals, it really keeps me full all morning!

Instant Pot Oatmeal Toppings

Make Instant Pot oatmeal with steel cut oats or rolled oats and top with apples, cinnamon, honey or another favorite topping and you’re done.

Some topping ideas are:

  • Fruit – blueberries, strawberries, bananas, kiwi, pomegranate seeds, blackberries, red raspberries, apples, peaches
  • Chocolate chips 
  • Nuts – walnuts, pecans
  • Dried cranberries, raisins 
  • Chia seeds
  • Flax seeds 
  • Sliced coconut 
  • Maple Syrup
  • Brown Sugar 

I love the versatility of oatmeal because it changes so much depending on the toppings.

My go-to is maple syrup or apples with apple pie spice.

TIP: I like to add my chopped apples in with the oatmeal when I warm it up so they soften a bit.

So easy and delicious! And for the days when you want to give oatmeal a rest, why not learn how to make bagels? It’s easier than you think!

This is the year I will use my Instant Pot more and oatmeal is the perfect place to start.

Especially now that we are traveling and cooking more with groceries in our RV.

It’s just too versatile to leave on the shelf! I have the 6-quart and the additional air fryer lid.

Perfect for my family of four!
