Instant Pot Matcha Oatmeal

Oatmeal is a breakfast I have almost every day, especially in the Winter, because of its warming and stick-to-your-red properties, so I thought I would share a few variations of my favorite oatmeal. Introducing Instant Pot Matcha Oatmeal!

Introducing this super creamy matcha latte oatmeal that takes just 10 minutes to prepare. And no, it is not butter on top. It’s vegan white chocolate!

Instant Pot Matcha Oatmeal


Preparing this oatmeal requires about 10 minutes and is super easy. All you need is rolled oats, matcha powder, plant-based milk, and some sugar.


There are two types of matcha: culinary and ceremonial. The first one is a lower-quality matcha used in desserts and baked goods, while the ceremonial one is primarily used in beverages. Culinary matcha is often much cheaper than ceremonial one but doesn’t have the same sweetness, flavor, and vibrant green color.

Personally, I recommend using ceremonial matcha if your budget allows it. Not only will your oatmeal have a better flavor, but will also be your matcha lattes. I tried many different types and brands of matcha, and I always found the ceremonial ones to have a very pleasant flavor with no bitterness or “grass” aftertaste.

A note on caffeine: The higher the quality of your matcha, the higher the caffeine content. If using ceremonial matcha, one serving of this oatmeal packs about 70mg of caffeine, which is the equivalent of about one cup of coffee. Perfect to have a productive morning!

After testing with different milk, I would recommend staying away from coconut or soy milk. These milks have a strong taste that tends to cover the matcha flavor. Go with mild plant-based milk like almond, rice, or macadamia milk. I also tested with oat milk, and while the flavor was great, I found the texture of oatmeal to be a bit slimier.

Cooking rolled oats on the stove requires stirring regularly and keeping an eye on it. By cooking in the Instant Pot, you combine all the ingredients in a bowl, place it on the steamer rack, close it with the lid, and let the Instant Pot do its work. There is no need to check or stir it regularly. You can prepare your morning tea or coffee in the meantime.

Another advantage is that you have fewer dishes to clean! Since we cook the oats directly into a bowl placed on the steamer basket, all you have to do is carefully remove the bowl of oats (it’s still hot) and add your toppings. The Instant Pot liner just requires a quick rinse.


While nut butters, fresh fruits, and dark chocolate are my favorites for regular oatmeal, I like to keep it simple for matcha oatmeal to not cover the delicate matcha flavor. The one topping that I love with matcha is white chocolate. Let a couple (or more) of squares of vegan white chocolate melt on top of your warm oats, stir to combine, and enjoy! Cashew and macadamia butter are also great! What are your favorite oatmeal toppings?
