Recipe Notes

*Non-Stick Note – Because the Crock-Pot Express version that we have comes with a non-stick insert there is no need to do anything before cooking your oats. However if you are using a different version of the Crock-Pot Express or another brand of electric pressure cooker (InstaPot, Cuisinart, MooSoo, Presto, etc.) that does not have a non-stick insert you may wish to spray the insert with non-stick cooking spray or lightly coat with butter)
