  1. Combine all of the ingredients in the Instant Pot 8-24 hours before cooking.
  2. Cook on manual, high pressure for 5 minutes.
  3. Allow the pressure to release naturally (this takes about 10 minutes).
  4. Serve immediately with your favorite toppings or keep on warm until ready to serve.


  • You can use the timer function on your Instant Pot for it to turn on when you get up in the morning.
  • From start to finish it takes about 25 minutes to cook the oats.
  • This serves 4-6 people. It is enough for my family of 6 – 2 adults and 4 kids.
  • If you like your oatmeal creamier use more water. If you like a heartier, chewier oatmeal use less water.
