Pressure Cooker Cinnamon Agave Steel Cut Oats is a simple and basic recipe that can be dressed up according to your mood.
This is my go-to breakfast. It helps to keep my cholesterol in check and it nice and creamy and delicious. Organic Blue Agave is a natural, gluten free low glycemic response sweetener that is a bit sweeter than sugar, so less volume is needed. I like to use organic ingredients whenever feasible.
Coconut oil is an excellent source of lauric acid and medium chain triglycerides for your healthy diet and body care and is wonderful to use in cooking and baking. I use either ground cinnamon or a cinnamon stick when making Steel Cut Oats. A pinch of salt, helps to bring out the sweetness.
When I make just one serving, I use the “pot in pot” method. Water is added to the bottom of my Pressure Cooker and a trivet is placed on top. Then with either a serving bowl or a stainless steel bowl, add all the ingredients.
If making a larger serving, I first toast the oats in the Pressure Cooker Cooking Pot and then add the rest of the ingredients. I love the taste of the toasted oats.
I use fresh nutmeg and use a Microplane to zest the nutmeg.
Top with freshly diced apples, raisins, walnuts, peaches. This is a basic recipe, which you can use each morning and top with a different fruit.
