  • Instant Pot


  • 1 cup grated zucchini
  • 1 cup grated carrot
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey or to taste
  • 2 cups milk of choice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup steel cut oats certified gluten free, if needed.
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Add all of the ingredients to your Instant Pot and stir to combine.
  • Place the lid on your Instant Pot and lock it into place. Make sure the valve n top is closed to sealing.
  • Cook on HIGH pressure for 12 minutes. It will take your pressure cooker about 10 minutes to get up to pressure. Once cook time is up, carefully turn the valve on top to venting and quick release the pressure. The steam will come out quick and fast, so be sure to keep hands and face clear of the steam and that your pressure cooker isn't directly under a cabinet or pointing at someone.
  • Stir oatmeal with a long handled spoon. Add more milk or water for a thinner consistency if desired. Oatmeal will also thicken up a bit as it cools.
  • Enjoy warm, topped with sliced bananas, raisins, berries, fruit, nut butter, extra maple syrup/honey, yogurt, or chopped nuts.
  • Let cool and store leftovers in fridge for about 3 days.
