Why have plain boring oatmeal when you can have Pressure Cooker Cinnamon Roll Steel Cut Oats topped with brown sugar cinnamon and a swirl of cream cheese icing. 

My daughter makes steel cut oats for her family several times a week. She gets tired of the same old oatmeal, so she asked me to create a cinnamon roll steel cut oats recipe.

For me cinnamon rolls have to have raisins, but if you’re not a fan, feel free to omit them. Mixing the brown sugar and the cinnamon together gives you the flavor of the cinnamon roll filling. And perhaps my favorite part, a great cinnamon roll has have a rich cream cheese icing.

This is a warm, hearty breakfast that kids of all ages will fall in love with.
