- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Blend non-dairy milk and cashews in a blender until smooth; pour into your pressure cooker pot. Alternately, place milk and cashews into the chopper attachment of an immersion blender; blend until smooth.

Steel-cut oats are great for preparing ahead of time! After cooking, the oatmeal can be refrigerated and stored for up to 5 days or portioned into individual ramekins and frozen for 3 to 4 months. When serving the oatmeal after freezing, allow to fully thaw in the refrigerator overnight before heating in the microwave or on the stovetop.

This is a great post work out breakfast. I changed out the maple syrup with pure agave nectar and also tossed in a scoop of protein powder.
George Delamea says:
I usually only LIKE oatmeal made with rolled oats, so I'm always scouting for good steel-cut oats recipes. Though I love chai, I was skeptical this would work, but it really does. I put the spices in a cheesecloth package so I wouldn't be eating tea leaves. Otherwise, followed pretty closely. Made a big batch, refrigerated the extras and then turned into a bunch of oatmeal patties to pan-fry for grab-and-go treats. Really, really good way to eat this oatmeal, btw.
Eileen Donahue says:
This was good. I didn't have ginger so I had to omit that. I also used vanilla flavored oat milk so I nixed the vanilla extract. I tossed a regular grocery store tea bag in there & just fished it out at the end. Yum.
Laura Griffin says:
Very good chai latte oatmeal! They were so easy to reheat on the stovetop the next day. I love the ginger and cardamom spices, so festive, and a great fall recipe that's not pumpkin spice.
Katie Hason says:
I bought a container for steel cut oats by accident, and it sat in my pantry for awhile! When I saw this recipe, I had to try it so I could put them to use. I already loved chai flavor, and this oatmeal tastes like a piece of heaven. There's a lot of spices in this recipe but they all blend together nicely, making this a delicious, aromatic dish.
