steel cut oats, peaches and cream, pressure cooker recipe
I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk
steel cut oats
I used Bob's Red Mill
plus more for serving
pure vanilla extract
one large peach peeled, pitted and chopped into small pieces
heavy cream or milk
Add the water, milk, oats, vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar, sea salt and chopped peaches to the liner of your pressure cooker. Stir to combine.
Secure the lid, check to make sure the knob is in the “sealing” position. Press the Manual button and adjust the time to 3 minutes on High Pressure, using the + or – buttons.
When the pot beeps, allow the pressure to release naturally for 15 minutes. Turn the knob to release any remaining pressure, and remove the lid.
Stir the oatmeal to mix everything together. It will look a bit soupy at first, but it thickens as it cools.
Serve with heavy cream or milk, sliced peaches, brown sugar, coconut sugar or honey.
Steel cut oats, also known as Irish oats and groats, have a firmer texture and almost nutty flavor compared to rolled oats.
They are higher in dietary fiber as well, making them slower to digest (complex carbohydrate) and lower on the glycemic index which avoids sugar spikes.
Steel cut oats are naturally gluten-free, but double check to make sure they are not processed in a plant that also processes wheat products.
A 1/4 cup serving contains 10% of your daily recommendation for iron and 7 grams of protein, making them a healthier choice over rolled oats.
If you do not have a pressure cooker: cover and simmer over low heat for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to avoid burning.
