  • 3½ cups plain non-dairy milk
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon black tea leaves
  • 1½ teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1¼ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. 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.
  2. Stir oats, salt, maple syrup, tea leaves, ginger, cinnamon, salt, cloves, allspice, and cardamom with the cashew-milk mixture.
  3. Lock pressure cooker lid in place and set steam vent to Sealing.
  4. Select Pressure Cook (Manual) and cook for 12 minutes on High pressure.
  5. Once the cooking cycle has completed, allow pressure to release naturally.
  6. Stir vanilla extract through the oatmeal to serve.
Mealthy tip:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
