Health Benefits

The oat grain, or groat, may be small, but it is a nutritional powerhouse that provides many health benefits. Here are three important ways oats are good for you;

  1. Oats contain more protein than most grains, which provides sustained energy.
  2. They are a good source of fiber, including beta-glucan, which is a soluble fiber that can help reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
  3. Oats also contain many powerful antioxidants, including avenanthramides. These compounds may help reduce blood pressure.

How To Make

Step #1: Spray bottom and sides of the Instant Pot inner pot with nonstick cooking spray, and add in the quick oats and almond milk. Alternatively, add 1 cup of water to the pot and put ingredients in a ceramic casserole dish that will fit on top of the trivet.

Step #2: Turn the valve to pressure setting, and select a manual cooking time of 5 minutes. Once cooking time has elapsed, do a quick release. Open the lid and stir.

Step #3: Dish up into bowls, and top with raisins, sliced apple, and a drizzle of maple syrup (or toppings of your choice). Enjoy!
