Three Reasons Oats are Good for You
The oat grain, or groat, may be small, but it is a nutritional powerhouse that provides many health benefits. Here are three important ways oats are good for you;
- Oats contain more protein than most grains, which provides sustained energy.
- They are a good source of fiber, including beta-glucan, which is a soluble fiber that can help reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
- Oats also contain many powerful antioxidants, including avenanthramides. These compounds may help reduce blood pressure.
One Tip for Cleaning your Instant Pot
Here’s a great tip to make cleaning your Instant Pot inner liner (the stainless steel pot) as easy as it is to cook in it. All you need to do is sprinkle in some Bar Keepers Friend, add a bit of water, and give it a quick scrub with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. This is a simple combination that really does work wonders!
How To Make Instant Pot Quick Oats — Raisin, Apple and Maple Syrup Flavored
Step #1: Spray bottom and sides of the Instant Pot inner pot with nonstick cooking spray, and add in the quick oats and almond milk. Alternatively, add 1 cup of water to the pot and put ingredients in a ceramic casserole dish that will fit on top of the trivet.
Step #2: Turn the valve to pressure setting, and select a manual cooking time of 5 minutes. Once cooking time has elapsed, do a quick release. Open the lid and stir.
Step #3: Dish up into bowls, and top with raisins, sliced apple, and a drizzle of maple syrup (or toppings of your choice). Enjoy!
