Rice Cooker Steel-Cut Oats

MishMash Globe | Steel Cut Oats

Surprise, surprise! I was sent an email from the most unlikely source with a tweet about cooking steel-cut oats in the rice cooker. But what a great idea… I like steel-cut oats, but hate cooking it on the stove top because it takes so much longer to cook than regular oatmeal. So I decided to test it out and it came out great. I’ve been eating it for breakfast almost every week. You will need a rice cooker with a porridge function to do this.

1 cup steel cut oats
2-1/2 cups water
1 cup almond or soy milk
Handful of raisins
3-4 Tbsp brown sugar

*use the rice measuring cup that came with your rice cooker.


To cook immediately

  1. Place steel cut oats and water and raisins in the rice cooker.
  2. Set the rice cooker on the “Porridge” setting
  3. When the rice cooker turns to Keep Warm, open the lid, stir and add the remaining ingredients.

To cook later

  1. You can also use the timer function and have steaming oatmeal ready when you get up in the morning.
  2. Just add all the ingredients as above, soaking the oats overnight will soften the texture.
