Breakfast has never been easier than these kid-friendly Instant Pot Oatmeal Bites. They are the perfect addition to your mornings. We love to meal-prep them ahead of time on Sunday morning for the entire week.
Breakfast time in the mornings is getting a little tired. We have to wake up pretty early to catch the bus at 6:50 am so I’ve been trying to find recipes I can make ahead for breakfast. I have been cooking sausages the night before, making Instant Pot hard boiled eggs for the week, baking breakfast cookies on Sunday, and the kids have been enjoying these oatmeal bites we make in our pressure cooker.
We baked these with mixed berries but the great thing about these is that you can modify the fruit to anything that your kids might enjoy we have used raisins and even chocolate chips!
To make them we used our egg bites silicone mold in our pressure cooker. We have used this mold for many great recipes including these animal cookie cheesecake bites!
We used brown rice flour for these, but you could also use whole wheat flour if that is what you have on hand. All-purpose flour should also work if that is what you have in your pantry.
Our pressure cooker has been a great addition to our lives. Be sure to check out our pressure cooker guide if you are new to the Instant Pot. There are a lot of great tips and tricks that we share along with our favorite pressure cooker recipes.

Instant Pot Oatmeal Bites
- 1 cup quick cooking oats
- 1/2 cup brown rice flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 eggs
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 cup mixed berries if frozen, thawed and smashed a bit
- Mix oatmeal, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a small bow. Set aside.
- In a larger mixing bowl, add eggs, honey and brown sugar and mix well. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Fold in berries.
- Grease molds with nonstick cooking spray and use a 3 tablespoon portion scoop to fill each cup.
- Place 1 cup water and trivet into instant pot. Fold a long piece of foil in thirds. Set one mold onto the foil in the center and bring up the loose foil sides. Lift the foil and set 1 mold onto the trivet in the pot and place a small piece of foil, greased with cooking spray, on top of the mold. Place the 2nd mold into the instant pot. Tuck in the loose ends of the foil so they do not extend over the top.
- Place the lid on the pot and seal shut. Close the pressure release valve. Set the instant pot to manual, high pressure for 10 minutes. When cooking cycle is complete, let pressure naturally release for 10 minutes before opening pot.
- Serve dusted with powdered sugar.

Can I substitute white flour?
I have used whole wheat and it was just fine. I haven’t tried all-purpose white but I don’t see why you couldn’t use that. 🙂
This recipe looks wonderful, I can’t wait to try it. Can these Oatmeal Bites be frozen?
Yes, I have frozen them. They thaw out nicely.
The video shows five eggs and the recipe calls for four eggs. Which is correct? I made this with four and didn’t have 3 tablespoons of fill for all 14 cups in the egg bite mold.
I use 4 eggs and I am able to fill all 14 molds. How far did you fill the molds?
Hello, I’m confused by the serving size. This should make 14 bites but the servings say 12. What is the serving size for one meal? Can’t wait to make!
You are correct, I will fix that. The servings should say 14. For kids 1 bite is plenty.
An I substitute quick oats for old fashion oats?
I have not tried it but for this recipe I don’t see why not.
These look great but I have a kiddo with an egg allergy. Can you recommend a good egg substitute?
You could try a mashed up banana in place of the eggs.

Have you tried Just Eggs? They’re work pretty well in recipes…

I only have 1 mold, will it be the same cooking time? Thanks!
Yes it would.
Substitute I used was almond flour and old fashioned oats ( not quick cooking )
Doubled the batch and made half blueberry and half dark chocolate chunk. So good!
The dark chocolate chunk sounds amazing! I am glad you enjoyed our recipe!
same cooking time?
These are delicious! I did all brown sugar instead because I was worried to use honey for my 1 year old. They turned out perfect!
That is a great suggestion for the young ones! I am glad you liked it!
These were super rubbery. Followed the instructions exactly. Any suggestions?
I feel a bit dense here… I’m not understanding the instructions for the foil. Can you share a photo or explain differently please?
My silicon moulds came with a silicon lid, can that be used instead?
Thanks so much. I hate when the obvious escapes me!
Don’t feel dense. I don’t use the silicon lid as it is supposed to be used for storage only and I don’t believe it is pressure cooker safe. I just place a sheet of foil over the top so that not too much moisture gets into the mold.
I have used the silicone lid in my IP for pancake bites and banana bread bites without a problem. I ordered 2 molds from amazon and received one plastic lid and one silicone. The plastic lid definitely can’t go in the pot but the silicone lid works, after all the molds themselves are silicone.

Made these last night they are delicious and easy to make. I substituted almond flour for the brown rice flour and added a teaspoon of vanilla. Divided the recipe in two and added bananas and toasted walnuts to half the batch and berries to the other. They came out delicious! Thanks for sharing.
That sounds delicious! Thank you for sharing!
I just made this for breakfast, what’s the best way to store? Counter or fridge?
It is best to store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Hi these sound great.. I don’t have molds so can I just cook them in a reg oven with the mini muffin pan? How long and what temp?
Yes you could. I would try 350 degrees for 13-15 minutes.
I don’t have an egg mold but I do silicone muffin cups. Will those work?
Yes they will!

My husband and I are fans (we went through 12 oatmeal bites in two days and we’re skinny people) — however, based on our affinity for these yummies, and our desire to stay fit, I checked the calorie count you listed in kcals — that would translate to an immense number of cals –so my math must be wrong.
WHAT’S THE CALORIE COUNT IN ORDINARY CALORIES of one muffin?
Thanks and keep the delicious recipes coming!

A kcal is one food calorie. There is no difference between a kcal (used in places where the metric system is in use) and one “American” food Calorie. Trust me, I teach science and go over this every year! 🙂
