  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 3 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 cup frozen tart cherries
  • 1 cup frozen sweet cherries
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla
  • Extra fresh fruit, if desired for serving


  • 1. Combine all ingredients in an electric pressure cooker.
  • 2. Lock the lid in place, and seal the valve. Select High Pressure with the timer set for 3-5 minutes.
  • 3. After the cooking is complete, use either natural release (for thicker oatmeal), or the quick release method (for a chewier bite) to release the pressure. When the valve drops, carefully remove the lid.
  • 4. Serve warm, with additional fresh fruit if desired.

Cooking Tips

  • 1. You can cook on the stove top for 20 minutes.
  • 2. To bake, add 1 extra cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk (4 cups, instead of 3) and bake it in a 9” x 13” pan at 350 degrees F for 45-55 minutes.
