1 1/4 cup gluten free rolled or steel cut oats
3 cups almond or coconut milk
1/2 – 2/3 cup chopped apple
1 large carrot, shredded into shavings or julienne sliced
1/3 cup raisins or goji berries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup flaxseed or chia seed
1/2 tbsp cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt
Optional: 1/4 cup coconut sugar or maple syrup for extra sweetness
1/3 cup regular or non dairy cream to mix in after cooked
1/2 cup fresh or thawed frozen blueberries for topper
Pour 3 cups of the non dairy milk into the oiled instant pot (coconut oil works well). Then add your oats and prepped ingredients (minus cream and toppings) in the Instant Pot. Mix all together until well combined.
Place Instant Pot on manual pressure cook for 8-9 minutes, then natural release. If using quick release let it sit for 2-3 minutes off/warm before quick release. If you are using quick oats (pot in pot method), only cook 7 minutes or so. Once cooked, mix in coconut cream and optional protein, if desired.
Spoon into 6-7 small 1 cup mason jars or 5 medium bowls. Top with blueberries. Optional honey and pinch of cinnamon/splash of milk.
Place milk in large saucepan. Bring to a soft boil.
Place all ingredients (minus toppings and sweetener) in the pot.
Reduce to low and cover for 20 -25 minutes or until oats have absorbed milk and are thoroughly cooked. Mix in sweetener and protein if desired.
Spoon into jars or bowls and then add toppings.
Rolled oats and non dairy mill help prevent burning of the oats at high temperature. Also Pot in Pot – Place Trivet or steamer rack inside inner pot of Instant Pot. Add in 1 cup of water to inner pot. Place a large (oven safe) bowl on top, proceed with regular instructions (mixing everything in the bowl) and natural release.
