  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 cup gluten-free steel-cut oats
  • 2 apples, chopped, (peeled-optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg, sprinkle to taste
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • cups water or apple juice, (3 cups for stove top or slow cooker)


  • 4 Tbsp milk or cream
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup nuts


Instant Pot/Multicooker: Turn your Instant Pot/multicooker to “sauté or brown”. Melt the butter in the pot and add the oats. Stir until the oats are fragrant. Add the apples, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and water/apple juice. Stir well. Close and lock the lid and cook on manual, high pressure, for 10 -14 minutes. Use the quick release. For chewier oats, cook for 7-10 minutes, for softer oats cook for 10-16 minutes. If it’s watery, let it stand for a few minutes to thicken up. Add optional ingredients as desired.
Slow Cooker: Turn slow cooker to low and add all ingredients. Give the ingredients a quick stir. Cover and cook on low overnight for 7-8 hours. Remove cover and stir to combine ingredients evenly. Add optional ingredients as desired.
Stove Top: Bring salt, butter, and water/juice to a boil. Add steel-cut oats, spices, and apples to boiling water and reduce heat to medium low, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15-30 minutes (15 minutes for chewier oatmeal, 30 minutes for soft, creamy oatmeal). Remove from heat, add vanilla extract and let stand for 5-10 minutes. Add optional ingredients as desired.
