Instant Pot Brown Butter Oatmeal with Pecans and Blueberries

Make this Instant Pot Brown Butter Oatmeal with a topping of pecans and blueberries in the fraction of the time compared to the stove top version. You have perfectly cooked oats that you can top with a nutty crunch of pecans and fresh blueberries for the most wholesome and tasty breakfast.

Steel cut oats have a very hearty and chewy texture that hold up well during the cooking process. Brown butter gives this oatmeal a rich and toasty flavor. Once you have tried your oats like this, I can almost guarantee you will never want to go back to your old cooking ways. 

The Instant Pot makes cooking steel cut oats effortless. You don’t have to sit and supervise the cooking process. Just follow the steps, set it, and let the Instant Pot handle the rest.

When it is done you will have perfect steel cut oats, ready to scoop out, top, and devour. This oatmeal recipe will help keep your family full and satisfied until lunchtime.

You can make quinoa, rice, mashed cauliflower and more that come out perfect every single time you use your Instant Pot.

Steel cut oats are considered to be a power food! They are rich in fiber, minerals, vitamins and a great source of protein. Serving this as an option for breakfast is a no-brainer.

A hearty bowl of oats will fuel your family and give their body the nutrients they need. If blueberries or pecans aren’t you favorite choice of topping, substitute with your favorite topping or eat them plain.

We really enjoy the bursting flavor from the blueberries and the crunch from the pecans!  This recipe is kid tested! I have two that LOVE oatmeal and they said this is the best they ever tasted!
