PLANT-BASED INSTANT POT BREAKFAST IDEAS

Carrot Cake Oatmeal
Carrot Cake Oatmeal

The traditional method of cooking steel cut oats requires standing over the stove for at least 30 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent sticking and scorching. With the Instant Pot, you can toss all of your ingredients in at once, hit a few buttons, and get ready for the day while breakfast cooks itself.  This Carrot Cake Oatmeal recipe is creamy, cinnamon-y with a nice texture from chopped nuts. Recipe from Well Vegan.

INSTANT POT BREAKFAST RICE BOWLS

Oats can be tricky if you’re gluten intolerant because even though they’re naturally gluten-free, they are contaminated with gluten grains during the growing/harvesting process. So what about brown rice as an alternative? Topped off with maple syrup, coconut milk, pecans, and raisins makes this a perfect solution. Recipe from Eat Something Delicious.
