Peaches and Cream Instant Pot Oatmeal – Make ahead a large batch recipe for peaches and cream Instant Pot oatmeal, and start mornings with a family favorite, kid approved homemade breakfast!

Instant Pot oatmeal makes a great breakfast, lunch, or even snack idea. As a teen, I had a thing for Instant Oatmeal, more specifically, Peaches and Cream Oatmeal. I absolutely loved it.

Now I can just make it myself, giving me the freedom to add less sugar and make it a bit more healthy than those instant packs probably are. My family prefer steel cut or old fashioned oats, and to be honest, I prefer to keep things simple too, especially when it comes to the food we eat.

My guys like this particular oatmeal recipe because it’s not too sweet. Not gonna lie, I’m the sweet tooth in the family, but they definitely keep me in check and make me re-think certain recipes and how much sugar I’m adding.

SHOULD I USE STEEL CUT OATS, QUICK OATS OR OLD FASHIONED OATS FOR INSTANT POT OATMEAL?

For this recipe, I use old fashioned or rolled oats. However you can use steel cut oats; you just may need to increase the cooking time by a minute or two, since steel cut oats can take longer to cook.

The nice thing is, with the pressure cooker, things cook more quickly.

The Kitchn has a great article explaining the difference between steel-cut, rolled, and instant oats.

SHOULD I USE FRESH OR FROZEN PEACHES?

I’ve used both fresh and frozen peaches, and they work equally well. If you’re in a hurry, though, I highly recommend frozen peaches.

You can also use canned peaches, but be sure to drain the liquid before adding them to the oatmeal.

TIPS FOR HOW TO MAKE OATMEAL IN THE INSTANT POT

TIPS TO KEEP YOUR OATMEAL FROM SCORCHING

Some people say not to use milk because it can scorch on the bottom of the pan. While it’s left a bottom film that kinda clings to the pot, it’s never burned or tasted burnt.

Also, you may be able to avoid scorching with the following methods:

  • Use all water and no dairy.
  • Substitute another kind of dairy product (like almond milk).
  • If you find you just can’t make it without it scorching, reduce the cook time by a minute or two.
  • Throw everything in, adding the milk last, and don’t stir. Just cook it.

MY FAVORITE TIPS FOR COOKING OATMEAL IN THE INSTANT POT

  • I use half water/half milk for a more creamy texture to our oatmeal.
  • I also like to add cinnamon because I love the combination of peaches and cinnamon, especially when I make peach cobbler… So good!
  • When you go to serve the oatmeal, you can have things like sugar, brown sugar, cream or milk, and maybe even extra fruit handy for anyone who wants it. I’ve always added cream or milk with a little sugar to my oatmeal after it’s cooked.

    • I’m making this right now with frozen peaches, didn’t change anything for that – except definitely do NOT drain frozen peaches, you don’t want to loose that precious peach juice. For my person preference I replaced a Tablespoon of the sugar with blackstrap molasses and increased the cinnamon a tad.

  1. 4 c is a lot of oatmeal. I cut the recipe in half for a family of 3. We had plenty and a little left over for the next morning. I added blueberries as well, so good!


  2. This is delicious! This is the first recipe I made in my instant pot because it didn’t seem too daunting, and I’ve made it once a week for the past 3 weeks now! I scaled it back since my husband is not an oatmeal fan and it’s only me and our 15 month old eating it. The first 2 times I made it, it did scorch on the bottom, but as you said, it really doesn’t affect the flavor. However I made it this morning and no scorching! I put all my dry ingredients in the pot last night, and put in the milk, water, and peaches this morning and started cooking. I realized after the fact that I forgot to stir everything together and I was so mad – but it seems to have worked in my favor because the color and texture were perfect all the way through! Not sure if I just got lucky or if NOT stirring is the key, but I’ll be sure to try this again next time and hope to get the same results!


  3. I don’t like oatmeal and don’t even eat it, but I needed to find some meals I could make for my patient/client who has advanced Parkinsons and is experiencing dysphagia. I recently bought 25# of peaches from the farm and processed them all (canned, and frozen) and searched on Pinterest and came across this recipe.
    I had my doubts and reservations about it and was sure it would not work and I’d be stuck with lots of oatmeal. My roommate assured me he would eat it, if so.
    So, I made it. Not only did the recipe succeed, but it came out amazing and even I ate some! I cannot thank you enough for this recipe and know my lady client will appreciate it also.
