HOW TO COOK OATMEAL ‣‣ 6 Amazing Steel Cut Oatmeal Recipes


(slow R&B music) – Hello, friends, welcome to my channel. If you’re new here, my name is Alyssa. Today I have got a fabulous video in store for you because we are making oatmeal, but we’re not just making your standard, traditional oatmeal because I felt like that was gonna be kind of a boring video. We are gonna be making oatmeal in six different flavor options. So, I’m excited to be
partnering with my friends at Bob’s Red Mill to
bring you today’s video. They feel like the perfect
partner for this video because they literally have almost every single variety of oat that
you could ever imagine. They have everything
from quick, instant oats. They have traditional rolled oats. They have extra thick rolled oats. They have steel-cut oats. You name it, they have it. For today’s video I’m
actually gonna be showing you how to make steel-cut
oats in the instant pot, but I do just want to preface
that you can use any method for cooking oatmeal and any
type of oats for this recipe. So, just make a traditional
batch of oatmeal, any type of variety that
you like, make it plain, and then you can use these flavor options to spice it up and make it
a little bit more exciting. So, make sure to stay tuned
to the end of the video because I’ll share a little bit more about Bob’s Red Mill as well as where
you can find their products. Without further adieu,
let’s go ahead and dive in. All right, so I’m gonna first show you how to cook the steel-cut oats. So, we’re gonna use Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free steel-cut oats. Make sure that you’re
using the regular ones, not the quick-cooking ones. We’re gonna add two full
cups into our instant pot. We’re gonna follow that
up with some water, and my trick is to actually
also add in some almond milk. It makes it super creamy. And then, we’re gonna
add in a pinch of salt, which really helps bring out the flavor, and stir it all together. Pop your lid on your instant pot. Make sure that your vent is closed. And then, you’re gonna
turn your pressure on high. Set it to four minutes. I like to turn the keep warm setting off, but that’s optional. Let your instant pot turn on, and then, it will build pressure and
the timer will count down. Once it’s done counting, let
it sit for about 10 minutes, then actually release the pressure. Then you can release the
pressure the rest of the way. Once it’s released you can remove your lid and stir everything together. Your instant pot oats
should be nice and creamy. They have such an awesome texture. And seriously, a cooking
time of four minutes, you can’t beat that. All right, so, now we’re gonna move on to our different flavors. The first flavor that we’re
gonna make is apple cinnamon. We’re gonna add about a cup of cooked steel-cut oats into a bowl. Add in about half of a chopped apple as well as some cinnamon, and then just give it a quick stir until everything is combined. Once it’s combined you can
move on to your toppings, which is just the rest
of the chopped apple, as well as some chopped almonds
and a nice pinch of cinnamon and a drizzle of maple
syrup to finish it off. And then, you can just dig in. This is so awesome in the winter and fall. It’s really cozy and warming and you could also actually saute the
apples if you wanted. That would be delicious, as well. (slow R&B music) Our second recipe is lemon blueberry. Again, we’re gonna add about a cup of cooked steel-cut oats into our bowl. To that we’re gonna add some lemon juice, some frozen blueberries,
and some maple syrup, and just stir that together
until it is all evenly combined. Your oats should kind of
turn like a purply color, it’s really pretty. And then, for topping on this one we’re gonna add on some more blueberries, we’re gonna add some lemon zest, which really helps brighten up that flavor and gives it a nice extra zing. Some chopped almonds for a
little bit of crunch and texture. And then, I like to add some almond milk onto this one just
because it makes it like super creamy and it’s really delicious. This one, of course, is really bright, flavorful, it’s full of berries, and I think it’s perfect in
the springtime and summer. (slow R&B music) Our third flavor is a classic, it’s peanut butter and banana. You’re gonna add about a cup of steel-cut oats into your bowl. From there you’re gonna add half of a mashed banana into the bowl, as well as a tablespoon of peanut butter. And then, you’ll stir
this all together until everything is smooth
and creamy and combined. Once it’s all combined, for our toppings we’re
gonna keep it super simple, it’s just the rest of the banana, so you’re gonna end up using
a whole banana in this recipe. I like to slice it up. You could also chop it,
you could just do whatever. And then, we’ll also finish it off with a drizzle of peanut butter because the more peanut butter the better, in my opinion. And I like to finish it off with something a little bit crunchy, it’s really good with chopped peanuts, but I really like to use hemp
seeds and also chia seeds. So, I did a blend of chopped peanuts and chia seeds for this one. And then, you can just dig right in. This one is so good. I will say that the bananas don’t last quite as long as some
of the other recipes, so if you’re gonna meal
prep all six of these, I would recommend that
you eat this one first. (slow R&B music) Our fourth recipe is chocolate coconut. You guys know I had to
add something chocolate in here ’cause I love
chocolate for breakfast. Again, it’s gonna use about a
cup of cooked steel-cut oats, as well as some maple syrup,
a little bit of coconut milk, some raw cacao, and then,
we’re gonna stir that together until your oats
get nice and chocolatey. The coconut milk is gonna help
to kinda loosen up the oats, especially if you’re making this with oats that have already been cooked
and they’re kind of cold. And then, once that’s all combined, we’re just gonna top that with
some toasted coconut chips, as well as some chocolate chips. And then, again, I like to do another drizzle of coconut milk here. It just adds a really
nice creaminess to it, and it kind of helps to balance
out some of the sweetness. This one kind of reminds me of Samoas, like, you know, the Girl Scout cookies. It’s got that really nice toasted coconut flavor combined with the chocolate, and it’s a little bit on the
decadent side, but I love it. (slow R&B music) Our fifth recipe is throwin’ it back to childhood and it’s PB&J. Again, we’re gonna add one cup of cooked steel-cut oats into our bowl. We’re gonna top that with about a tablespoon of peanut butter. I’m using some homemade
peanut butter here. If you’re interested
in getting that recipe I’ll link it down for you below, but just stir it all
together into the oats. You’re basically just gonna
have a peanut butter base. And then, the topping
for this one is going to be a generous dollop of chia seed jam. You could use whatever
kind of jam you like, but I like to use chia seed
jam because it’s adding a nice form of protein,
some extra healthy fats, and it’s really easy to make at home. And then, to finish it
off, some maple syrup, a little bit of coconut flakes, and some chopped peanuts for a crunch. And again, this one is just like very, it’s got the peanut
butter, it’s got protein, it’s got healthy fat,
and the flavor combo, you just, you can’t beat
peanut butter and jelly, it’s just one of those combos
that just makes you happy. (slow R&B music) And then, last but not least, we are making a maple sea salt variety. So, again, we’re gonna use one
cup of cooked steel-cut oats. At this point you probably will
have used all of your oats, so the two cups makes
about six full portions. We’re also gonna add a
tablespoon of cashew butter, which helps to make it really creamy, as well as some vanilla
bean powder or you could use vanilla extract, and
a touch of maple syrup. And you’re gonna stir that together until it is smooth and creamy. The cashew butter really helps give this some creaminess and kind of like a rich, caramely flavor along
with the maple syrup. Mmm, it’s so good. And then, for topping this one we’re keeping it super simple,
just some chopped up pecans, some additional maple syrup,
a splash of almond milk, and also, a pinch of flaked sea salt. The sea salt combined with the
maple is bangin’, you guys. It really brings out the sweetness. It also brings out the caramely flavors and it kind of tastes
like a pecan pie/dessert. This is definitely my favorite variety, and I think it’s just so good,
you guys are gonna love it. Even if you aren’t a
sweet-salty combo person, it’s really good, you gotta try it. And that pretty much does it
for all six of our flavors. And what’s great about steel-cut oats is that they are meal-prep friendly, so you can make all of these on a Sunday and they will last you all week long. I just recommend that you eat the ones that have fruit first because that will tend to get a little bit
soggy as the week goes on. But I hope you guys try ’em, and I know you’re gonna
really, really like them. And there you have it, my friends. I hope you enjoyed today’s
oatmeal inspired video I can’t wait to hear
what flavors you make. My personal favorite
is the maple sea salt. I also love the peanut butter and jelly and the chocolate coconut. You really can’t go
wrong with any of them. They’re all delicious. So, make sure to come back to this video and let me know which

  1. How much water?! That's the reason I watched lol but u said just add water 😂 love flavors very helpful but I need amount of water I don't have a pressure cooker

  2. How interesting. About a month ago, I contacted Bob's for recommended cooking timing in the Instant Pot for quick cooking steel cut oats. I was informed that Bob's does not recommend cooking any oatmeal in the Instant Pot because of the foam that can cause the vents to clog. I figured it was a liability issue. Instant Pot itself has a recommended time for steel cut oats. I have been cooking them with out any problem although I do saute the oats in a pat of butter before pressure cooking. The butter or any fat is suppose to eliminate the foaming problem. Your recipes look yummy.

  3. Hi (to all my 100% loyal family)
    (whoever they are)

    Just a morning post.

    But just a random thought.
    (And don’t quote me on this because I don’t know)
    (My enemies are actually the Australian and a girl?)

    Well because going by the easiest way, the process of elimination.
    • it can’t be a 5 dominate
    • it can’t be a 3 dominate.
    (Well “for obvious reasons” and anyone who “even have a basic knowledge of the enneagram would find this”
    “Likely to be true”.

    Well and so they’re doing what they’re doing for fun most likely.
    (Well because I can’t really see “any other way” )
    (I mean, even if one of them are a 4 and they hate me. I don’t see how they would still be doing this.)
    (Well, because
    “even 4’s understand that the level of autistim it takes to be doing this”)

    And so the only “motive i see for doing this”
    (Is somewhat of a
    “abandon all logic and rational thinking”
    (sort of thing)
    Because that’s the ONLY motive I can see for this.
    (Because you’d have to be literally quite in quite have a
    “clinically diagnosed confirmed autism” to be doing all of this)
    And so “obviously my enemies don’t have that”
    (because if they did, they wouldn’t be able to do anything at all in the first place)
    (And the stuff they do do are practically nothing anyways, since my 100% loyal family are a million times smarter than them, and that’s nothing new lol, it’s been like that since day 1)

    But uhm that’s most likely why.
    “My main enemy is most likely a feeler”
    (And a feeler doesn’t mean it has to do with “it’s anything personal”)
    (The reason why it’s a feeler is because like I said before above.
    “A feeler is most likely the type to have the
    “Abandon all logic and rational thinking” and just be completely brain dead and dumb.

    And the person helping my enemy is most likely a
    Well he can be either the Australian or.
    The submissive autistic ISTP 648 (previously 486 ) or something like that.
    Or a 497 or something
    I’d imagine the thing is.
    “If you don’t do this, I’ll leave you and stuff ”
    (And then he cries and stuff)
    That is cringe btw.

    (Oh and I know I’m a 684 ESFP but I’m unique both personality (about personality is because I’m tough minded) and looks, and in terms of looks (face) I’m the best there is was and ever will be (real life).

    Ok I got to go now.

    And ofc I have my lifetime connection with all my 100% loyal family)

    To(alll my 100% loyal family) (whoever they are)

    Thanks for reading!

  4. What is the peanut butter one again? You had mention about some brown powder, rocket cal. What is rocket cal if I'm spelling it right?

  5. More options:
    chocolate and peanut butter oatmeal (w/ cinnamon), use special dark 100% cacao cocoa, and chocolate chips (optional)
    shredded carrot oatmeal (w/ vanilla extract, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger)
    canned pumpkin oatmeal (w/ vanilla extract, pumpkin spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger)

  6. I came here because there’s only one way I know how to prepare an oatmeal and that’s oatmeal with milk hahahahah

  7. I mostly put in the microwave since I don't have a lot of time in the morning. I mix it with milk and after heating I add some Greek yoghurt, fruit and other extra flavours. But I'll definatly try these on the days I don't have to work.

  8. Some maple syrup and almonds. Our next recipe has some maple syrup and almonds. Ok, our next recipe has some maple syrup and almonds.

  9. I used to make oatmeal, put it in a bowl and put a thick layer of Nutella on it and thinking back it is sooo unhealthy und idk how I could eat that. It was so heavy and 🤢✋ I'm still not eating very healthy but that period of time is definitely something I'm not proud of wow..

  10. Amazing but adding. Mapple syrup ( sweetness ) with Apple doesn't need to be added as apple already provide sweetness and mapple syrup has too much sugar and I'd expensive jus my opinion

  11. My oatmeal recipe, 1cup of oats, water, 2 eggs, bonito flakes and salt lol, it’s similar to Chinese congee, better than any sweet oatmeal recipe I have ever had

  13. Oh, i'm currently addicted to oatmeal 😋 So delish 💖 I usually eat it with chia pudding, cocoa powder, banana &/or berries, cinnamon powder and soy milk

  14. What is the consistency of oatmeal supposed to be like? I have quick oats what I do is get sink water as hot as it goes and then put a little bit in the oats and that's it cuz when I cook it recommended it like turns into this yogurt consistency almost. I'm just wondering if that's how oatmeal is supposed to be cuz I wanna use slow oats cuz they're better but I'm afraid of cooking them cuz I like them to be somewhat crispy if that makes any sense.

  15. I hate rice cakes. They, rice cakes, taste like “nothing” perceptive shopper’s definition of rice cake is accurate. To repeat & reiterate I loathe and hate rice cakes— I feel like smashing all of them- them being rice cakes- it takes an awful lot of restraint to not smash all rice cakes— especially since the rice might be from jewnitedStAtes

    This is not oatmeal territory— shortbread always welcome

    More later undoubtedly as i am eternal ❄️🌲🔥

  16. Better (& learn to properly pronounce this word thru utube beautiful British English with Lucy- she is not a cat lady) than shortbread is prashad. Same three ingredients but superior texture plus moist & Warm. Haha

  17. Started eating plain oatmeal a couple days ago. Thank you so much for this lmao. Regular oats are not the best thing I’ve ever eaten.

  18. I add steel cut oats to boiling water, boil them for less than a minute, covered naturally. Then move them to a cold spot on the stove and leave them overnight.

  19. I tried the choclate one and am eating it at this moment😂💖 It's absolutely delious would deffinitley recommend 😋🤗

  20. Can't believe I slept on oatmeal my whole life. I had my first bowl this morning and it was awesome ! Guess I'm changing my breakfast menu

  21. Thanks for the video. Oatmeal alone is terrible but it is a good breakfast food. I look forward to eating more oatmeal trying it these ways. – Lincoln Park, Michigan
