So, what are steel cut oats, and how are they different from “normal” oats? Steel cut oats and rolled oats are made out of the same whole grain oatmeal. You’ll notice that the steel cut oats have more of the grain kept intact and look more like pieces of rice! To make rolled oats, the oats are processed through a roller that flattens them, allowing them to cook more quickly. Why might you consider eating steel cut oats over rolled?


  • 3 apples
  • 3 cups Millville Steel Cut Oats
  • 8 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Toppings: SimplyNature Cashew Butter, SimplyNature Organic Pure Maple Syrup, milk, fruit, etc.


  1. Chop the apples: core them and cut them into thin slices, then chop the slices into bite-sized pieces. Place the apples, steel cut oats, water, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt into the pressure cooker. Lock the lid. Place the pressure release handle (vent) in the “Sealing” position.
  2. Cook on high pressure 4 minutes: Press the Steam button and set the time for 4 minutes. It takes about 10 minutes for the pot to “preheat” and come up to pressure before it starts cooking. Wait while the oats cook. (Note: During cooking, avoid touching the metal part of the lid.)
  3. Natural release for 10 minutes: After the pressure cooker beeps, wait for another 10 minutes to let the pressure cooker naturally release pressure. (Tip: We set a timer for this part so we don’t forget!) After 10 minutes, vent any remaining steam by moving the vent to “Venting”, covering your hand with a towel or hot pad. Never put your hands or face near the vent when releasing steam.
  4. Open the lid and stir to form a creamy texture (the oats will have settled on the bottom). Serve immediately and topped with a bit of maple syrup, milk, sliced apples, and cashew butter. Store leftovers refrigerated for up to 5 days.
