Water Oat groats Salt


Fresh fruit such as pomegranates, berries, bananas, diced apples or pears. Peanut butter or Nutella Toasted coconut Crunchy granola Toasted nuts like almonds, pistachios or candied pecans Dried fruit such as raisins, dried cranberries, prunes. Brown sugar, honey, or maple syrup.

Sweet Topping Suggestions

Poached eggs Avocado slices Green onions or chives Shredded cheese (we love smoked Gouda or sharp Cheddar) Bacon crumbles Diced ham Spicy sausage links Sautéed spinach Sun-dried tomatoes Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sriracha, or teriyaki sauce

Savory Topping Suggestions

Bring the oats, water, and salt to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Place the lid on the pot to reduce evaporation.


Add everything to the Instant Pot, seal the lid and make sure the pressure valve is in the sealed position. Cook the oats on high pressure, then let it do a natural pressure release.

Instant Pot

Add the water, salt, and groats to the inner pot, clamp the lid down and select either high or low heat.

Slow Cooker

Making oat groats in the rice cooker is similar to making rice in the rice cooker. The appliance will automatically shut off when the groats finish cooking.
