Peaches and Cream Oatmeal in an Instant Pot® pressure cooker. – Instantly Delicious

Peaches and Cream Rolled Oats in an Instant Pot pressure cooker is loaded with healthy toppings -

MMM, instant peachy, creamy oatmeal.  I enjoyed many bowls during my 80s childhood.  I could make it myself, it had fruit and oatmeal -total healthfood, and finally, it was ready in about a minute.  While my tastes and health knowledge have matured over the years, a creamy oatmeal filled with peaches still sounds tasty.  Plus, I knew my kids would be thrilled to eat their oatmeal if it had peaches as an ingredient. I have been using my Instant Pot® to make various steel cut oat recipes,  but there was a request for “regular” oatmeal.  Since the Instant Pot® works just as well for rolled oats, that is what I used in this recipe.

This recipe for peaches and cream oatmeal in the Instant Pot® pressure cooker is indeed a health food.  This oatmeal is full of whole grain goodness, natural fruit and can be topped with optional flax meal, nuts, cream or non-dairy milk of your choice, and maple syrup for a bit of sweetness.
Peaches and Cream Oatmeal
Serves 4

2 cups rolled oats
4 cups water
​1 peach, chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons flax meal
1/2 cup chopped almonds
​splash of milk, cream, or non-dairy milk

​1. Add oats, water, peaches, and vanilla to the Instant Pot®. Set to porridge – high pressure, making sure the valve is set to sealing.  Adjust the time to 3 minutes.  When finished allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes before doing a quick pressure release by setting the valve to venting.

​2. Divide between 4 bowls, top with optional ingredients, and serve immediately.

​Enjoy, Julie

Made it this morning, in my Prime Day Instant Pot steal 🙂 loved it!!! A million times better than the half burned pot of glue I usually make while I run around getting myself and family out the door in the morning!!!

Check out this recipe and try with these proportions and time. I haven’t tried it, but my guess is that it would work. Let me know how it turns out.

Sounds awesome! Since peaches aren’t in season, do you think frozen peaches would work?

I just got frozen peaches tonight to try in this recipe in the morning. I’ll let you know how it turns out!!

I just threw in frozen cranberries, and it worked great!

Hi Sara,

Yes, absolutely. Maybe thaw them if you are worried about too much liquid, but I think they would be fine frozen, too.

Can one use instant rolled oats?

Hi Kerry,

I am unsure if the end result would be the same, because the cooking time might need to be shortened. Let me know if you try it.

Hmmm. I made it in my new Duo Instant Pot with exact directions (porridge — high pressure — 3 minutes) and it told me “burn” on the front. Let pressure release naturally for 10 minutes, vented the rest (nothing left to vent) and checked it. Mostly OK, just some stuck on the bottom, not too badly burned.

What did I do wrong? I did used canned apricots instead of peaches, but not sure that would make the difference.

I also made this recipe to the exact measurements given with my Instant Pot Duo 60 and got the burn message for the first time ever. I don’t know what would have went wrong? I used cut up frozen peaches instead of fresh, but otherwise changed nothing. I used the porridge button for 3 minutes on high pressure. But it didn’t get through the preheat phase totally before it said burn. So, I waited the 10 minutes to let the pressure release & opened it. It was good but there was a layer that got burned to the bottom of the pot. We still ate it and enjoyed it!

Hi Lacey,

Just seeing the message above. Here is what I wrote:

The new pots with the burn indicator is a problem with some of my recipes that might caramelize. One thing to try is to add the fruit on top and don’t stir. Otherwise, until I upgrade my pot, I can’t make good recommendations. I can try coming up with a pot-in-pot method, like I did for my banana bread oatmeal recipe. Look for it in the future.
