My one frustration with making oats in the mornings especially before school, is that risk of it spilling over because I’m juggling so much. Instant Pot has saved my life!

Thes Instant Pot is not exactly instant but what it does do is: You are able to turn it on and it does the work of releasing the pressure to cook your oats, I can forget it but because it’s timed, I return to just release the pressure, wait a few minutes and then enjoy.


First, add the oats and ADD 2 and half cups of water to the Instant Pot.

Place the lid on the Instant Pot and lock. Then press the Porridge button (you can also use Manual/Pressure Cook) and set to 5 minutes. Turn the knob on the top of the lid to ‘Sealing’ (not venting).

The Instant Pot will turn on and start to build pressure. After about 10 seconds the timer will automatically set to 5 minutes.

When the 5 minutes are done, it will need to sit for an additional 8-10 minutes to release the pressure.

After the the pressure is released, remove the lid. (Note: If the pressure is not released, you won’t be able to open it).

Simple. Done! No need to sit there and watch it.


Honey, Almonds & Banana Oats: Top a bowl of oats with sliced bananas, almonds and drizzle with honey.

Apples, Nuts, Blueberries and Cinnamon: Chopped apples and blueberries. A dash of cinnamon and then add some of your favourites nuts and drizzle with honey.

Tropical Fruit Bowl: Some of my favourite tropical fruits are pineapple, mango, banana or naartjies and some coconut flakes with some lactose free milk or almond milk.
