Instant Pot Low FODMAP Steel Cut Oats with Maple and Cinnamon

  • Author: Em Schwartz, MS, RDN
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


Instant Pot Low FODMAP Steel Cut Oats make use of the handy-dandy pressure cooker and offer a more hands-off approach to this popular whole grain breakfast option. They’re deliciously flavored with just a touch of maple syrup and cinnamon.


  • 1 cup steel cut oats (gluten-free steel cut oats for gluten-free)
  • 2 cups water
  • ¼ cup maple syrup (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon (or to taste)

Optional Serving Suggestions

  • Low FODMAP milk (lactose-free, almond, etc.)
  • Low FODMAP fruit (strawberries, blueberries, sliced banana)
  • Low FODMAP nuts (pecans, walnuts, etc.)


  1. Add steel cut oats and water into the Instant Pot and stir to mix. Place the lid on top of the Instant Pot and secure. Set vent to “Sealing”.
  2. Select the “Manual” setting on the Instant Pot. Adjust the time to 4 minutes on “High Pressure” and cook. After cooking, let the pressure naturally release for 20 minutes before carefully switching the vent to “Venting” and releasing any remaining pressure.
  3. After the pressure is fully released, remove the lid. Stir in maple syrup and cinnamon.
  4. Serve warm or store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.


Steel Cut Oats: A low FODMAP serving of oat groats/steel cut oats is a ¼ cup or 60 grams.

Optional Serving Suggestions: All of the foods listed have low FODMAP serving sizes. Please refer to the Monash University FODMAP app for the appropriate low FODMAP serving sizes. On a personal note, I like to serve mine with a little bit of unsweetened almond milk and chopped pecans.
