Basic Recipe

Peach Melba

Banana Cream Pie

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie

Toasted Coconut Marshmallow

Cinnamon Roll

Salted Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie


  1. Add oats, syrup, chia seeds, salt and extras to a pint size wide-mouth mason jar. Add water, leaving 1 1/2 inches of headspace.  Tightly screw on flat and metal ring.  Shake until everything is well distributed and the chia seeds aren’t clumping together.
  2. Unscrew and again tighten just until the lid meets resistance (fingertip tight).
  3. Add 1 cup of water to the pressure cooker pot and place a short trivet inside (if the rack is too tall, the pressure cooker lid will not close properly over the jars).  Place jar on the trivet (see note below about cooking with 3 jars at a time for more even cooking).  Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position.  Cook at high pressure for 20 minutes.
  4. When cooking is complete, use a natural release for 10 minutes and then release any remaining pressure.  Remove the jar from the pot and place on a cooling rack or hot pad.  Caution: The jar will be very hot!  Do not open the jar until contents have settled (no longer boiling).
  5. When ready to eat, carefully remove the lid using a towel or hot pads if the jar is still hot.  Give the oats a good stir and top with a Frozen Whipped Cream Dollop and suggested garnishes.
