Cherry and Chocolate Chip Oatmeal


  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 3 cups Water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 pinch grated nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup semisweet or dark chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh cherries
  • GREASE the bottom half of your Instant Pot with cooking spray or butter. Add the oats, water, salt, and nutmeg and stir. Secure the lid.
  • COOK at high pressure for 15 minutes and use a natural release.
  • ADD the maple syrup and vanilla and stir until creamy. Add brown sugar if you’d like your oatmeal sweeter (keep in mind that the chocolate and cherries will add some sweetness).
  • TOP each serving with chocolate chips and fresh cherries and serve.
  • P.S. If it isn’t cherry season, replace the fresh cherries with 1/2 cup dried cherries.
