Shopping Tips

Truvia (stevia) is my favorite sugar substitute. It’s all-natural and comes from the stevia plant. You’ll find it in most supermarkets in the baking aisle where sugar and other sugar substitutes are displayed.

  1. Marissa, I’m sure it can be made in an instant pot but I’ve never tried it that way. You might need to cook the apples first, remove and set aside. Next cook the oatmeal. Once oatmeal is done, mix in apples.
    Enjoy!
    My best,
    Nancy
