One of the best parts of the Instant Pot is its ability to make steel-cut oats in minutes; we make oatmeal several mornings a week during the cold winter months, and I love being able to make and eat my favorites steel-cut oats quickly and without advance planning.
As much as a I love oatmeal, it can get tiresome after a while, so I’m always looking for ways to dress it up and make it a little different. When I saw International Delight® Sugar Cookie Coffee Creamer at Walmart recently, it gave me a great idea.
I’ve been an International Delight fan for years; it’s a simple, delicious way to dress up a plain cup of coffee and make it special, but I’ve never really used it for anything else. Once I thought of using it for my oatmeal though, there was no turning back!
The recipe itself is simple, and would translate easily to any of the International Delight flavors; can you imagine Peppermint Mocha or Salted Caramel oatmeal? Yes please!
Serves: 3 servings
- 1 c. Steel Cut Oats
- ½ c. International Delight Sugar Cookie Coffee Creamer
- 1 c. Milk
- 2 c. Water
- Combine all ingredients in Instant Pot and stir to combine. (You can use more or less International Delight depending on how sweet you want it; replace it with milk)
- Cook on manual pressure for 3 minutes
- NR for 10 minutes, then QR to finish
- Stir before serving into bowls
- Garnish with sprinkles of choice
You can take your oats to next-level special when you pull out all of your sprinkles and add them on top, just like when you decorate sugar cookies for the holidays!
I kept mine simpler, with just candy-coated chocolate chips, but Max couldn’t resist the chance to go all in and use a little bit of everything on his.
I’ll definitely be making this again, and using some other flavors of International Delight Coffee Creamers; what do you think would be the best flavor?
