I know that overnight oats are all the rage these days, but I cannot get into them. This recipe is great because it nails the texture of steel-cut oats and adapts well to additions. If I have a little extra time, I deseed and chop an ancho chile pepper to add to the oats. When they're done, I like a little peanut butter & then I top it with fresh chopped apple. I also use coconut milk for my dairy-free guy sometimes. It all works really well.

My favorite breakfast, at least once a week and I top it with brown sugar and marionberries. So amazing! Sometimes I go crazy and put applesauce on top.

I love these pressure cooker steel cut oats. I make these in the morning for me and my fiancee, and we are both totally obsessed. Can't start our day without it! We top it with strawberries, bananas, and sometimes raspberries.

These filling and delicious oats were so easy to make in the pressure cooker. This recipe makes the perfect portion sizes as well. Next time I may substitute the whole milk for almond milk, but other than that I really enjoyed this breakfast recipe.

If you don't want to make more than one bowl, use a stainless or glass bowl instead. about 1/3 cup steel cut oats, 1 cup of liquids. Raisins, agave syrup, etc. On rack over a cup of water in the big bowl. Quick steel cut oats takes 5 minutes, regular about 10. Can be set up at night to be ready in the morning. One advantage is that it can be eaten right out of that bowl and there is 0 mess in the big pot- just water.

This turned out great- the perfect breakfast! I loved that I could just turn it on and wait for it to be done.

I make this at least once a week for an easy filling breakfast. My three year old loves hers with a little brown sugar. I do too and add berries and pecans. So quick and easy. Great night before prep for an easy on the go breakfast!

Perfectly cooked steel cut oats every time. Texture comes out al dente and there’s a very nice nutty savory flavor. I use a little less milk than the recipe calls for otherwise the milk flavor takes over. It’s ok to use more liquid because you can let it sit after cooking for a few minutes and it thickens up. Just don’t use less liquid than is called for other wise you’ll have a dried up crunchy mess. 1/3 cup of dried oats is a good single serving size if needed. One of my favorite healthy breakfast items, so savory!

My wife and I always used a slow cooker for steel-cut oats, but we have enjoyed saving LOTS of time with this recipe. We're very particular about our steel-cut oats and find that cooking them in the Multipot is the best way we've seen. Nice texture and flavor. A real winner.

So much easier in the Mealthy then stovetop version! Followed the recipe but added some vanilla extract in with the milk and a dash of cardamom. It didn’t burn and once I stirred in the remaining liquid it was the perfect consistency.

Tremendous texture almost pops when you chew, but not crunchy. I only added raisins this time, but will become more creative with the remainder.

Love this healthy breakfast. So quick and easy to make just 12 minutes. I like to chop an apple and caramelize it in butter before I toss in the oats to toast. Then I add three cinnamon sticks to the milk and water and proceed as directed. I like to eat my oats with brown sugar and milk.

Followed the recipe exactly, the oats were great, but burned on the bottom. Looks like I'll be soaking the pot for awhile. I've been cooking in electric pressure cookers for about eight years so am not a newbie. I notice that other recipes for steel cut oats in an electric pressure cooker call for twice the amount of liquid. Think I'll try one of those & see how it turns out.

Love these steel cut oats! I make them with coconut/almond milk. I also stir them with cinnamon and pumpkin spice before adding the milk. I make a batch every Sunday for the week. Then i add to each bowl raisins, maple syrup and walnuts. So yummy. A friend told me she didn’t like steel cut oats. I fixed her a bowl of my Mealthy oats. She is now a convert! She loved them! So good and so easy.
