Lately, I’ve been all about eating oatmeal for breakfast. It’s the perfect easy, healthy and warming food on cold spring mornings. My favorite way to make oatmeal is to use my favorite kitchen gadget – the Instant Pot. I like to use the Instant Pot because 1) I can add my ingredients, set the time and walk away, and 2) it makes the oatmeal super creamy and delicious. In this recipe, the apple cooks and dissolves into the creamy oatmeal.
Gather (I never measure, so these are approximate):
1/2 cup oats
1 apple, chopped
1 TBSP almond butter
Cinnamon and cardamom to taste
1 tsp ground flax seeds
Optional: top with more cinnamon, hemp seeds, almond milk, fresh fruit and/or nuts
Add the oats, apple, spices and almond butter to Instant Pot, and cover with water (approx 1 cup). Set the Instant Pot on manual for 3 minutes. After the oatmeal is done, stir in the ground flax seeds and top with whatever you like and eat!
