Instant Pot Banana Bread Oatmeal

Instant Pot Banana Bread Oatmeal

This Instant Pot Banana Bread Oatmeal has got all of the flavor of a luscious slice of banana bread, without the oily fat (or the extra smear of butter on top). Cinnamon, nutmeg, and three whole bananas give it an authentic “baked-in” taste.

  • 2 cups water
  • 3 cups unsweetened almond milk, divided 
  • 1 cup dry steel-cut oats
