I love oatmeal! It’s simple and hearty and keeps me feeling full all morning long. Oatmeal also does a great job of warming you up from the inside on cold winter mornings.
Oats are a nutritional powerhouse – high in fiber, vitamins and minerals. Steel cut oats are higher in fiber and protein than quick cooking or rolled oats, and take longer to cook. Feel free to sub quick cooking or rolled oats in this recipe – just be sure to adjust the cooking time accordingly!
Using a pressure cooker slightly cuts down on the cooking time and leaves you hands free to prepare all of the delicious toppings you can choose from! Isn’t the best part of oatmeal the toppings?
This oatmeal is extra creamy from the coconut milk and provides a powerful dose of polyphenols (beneficial plant chemicals!) from the cocoa powder to support your gut health.
I hope you love this chocolate pressure cooker steel cut oats! It’s:
- & Delicious!
