Instant Pot Date, Raisin and Walnut Oatmeal | Food Under Pressure

Date, Raisin and Walnut Oatmeal

If you’ve been here before, you know I love oatmeal!I’ve sort of made it a mission to reinvent those popular Oatmeal packet flavors. I’ve eaten plenty of quick oatmeal packets in my day. With age, I have started looking more at nutrition labels – when you can’t pronounce every ingredient, its probably time to consider eating something different…

These days I prefer homemade, and I have become OBSESSED with Oatmeal made in my Instant Pot!

I’ve shared recipes for Apple Cinnamon, Maple Brown Sugar, and Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal. I tackled Date, Raisin, and Walnut Oatmeal – it’s wrong to say “tackle” though honestly… it was freaking easy!

Date, Raisin and Walnut Oatmeal (Rolled Oats or Steel Cut)
You know you love my fun green spoon ?

Also add:
1-2 T butter or coconut oil
2 T chopped dates
2 T raisins
2 T chopped walnuts
1/2 t vanilla
1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 t salt
0*-2 T brown sugar, depends on sweet preference
*why 0? Dates and Raisins are already sweet, you may not need any sugar
Essential Tools

Instant Pot, or other pressure cooker
Instant Pot Silicone Mitts

Add all ingredients to Instant Pot insert.
Stir lightly. Close lid. Turn Vent knob to “Sealing”.
For Steel Cut Oats:
Press “Manual” button and use “+/-“ button to adjust cook time to 12 minutes.
For Rolled Oats:
Press “Manual” button and use “+/-“ button to adjust cook time to 3 minutes.
Instant Pot will take 5-10 minutes to pressurize – while doing so, display will show as “On”. When IP pressurizes, cook time countdown will begin.
When cook time is complete, IP will beep and automatically change to “Keep Warm” setting. Allow IP to naturally depressurize (NPR) for 10 minutes. QPR remaining pressure by turning vent knob to “Venting”. I always cover vent knob with a towel before QPR.
Open lid and lightly stir holding the inner pot with oven mitts, I use my Instant Pot Silicone Mitts – enjoy the sites, and the aroma!
Serve, garnished with extra walnuts, if desired.
