Instant Pot Steel Cut Oats

After a weekend of pure laziness, I’m out of most of the food I normally eat. I found a new container of steel cut oats, so I’m going to try making that in the Instant Pot for the first time. I used Kroger steel cut oats because I have no idea if oats are oats are oats.

Oh, and I must insert here that today I’ve lost 41 pounds. Yay!

I’m going to put one cup of oats and three cups of water into the Instant Pot and enter three minutes manually. I think some people add salt and maybe even butter, but I’m on a low-sodium, low-fat diet per my doctor’s instructions, so I’m leaving that out.

One lesson I just learned the hard way is to let the steam release naturally or it will make a horrific mess.

I layered 1/2 cup steel cut oats and fat-free strawberry-flavored Greek yogurt in a wine glass and topped with one tablespoon of slivered almonds. I used Oikos Triple Zero Greek Yogurt. I don’t drink alcohol anymore, so I might as well use those wine glasses for something.

If you’re doing Weight Watchers, this is 6 points.
