After searching and searching for an Instant Pot fruit crisp or cobbler recipe, I finally invented one of my own, and it came out perfectly! So, here’s my vegan, gluten-free fruit crisp recipe done in the Instant Pot.

If you haven’t yet heard about the Instant Pot, you probably will start hearing more and more about it. The Instant Pot is a countertop kitchen appliance that can be used either as an automatic, electronic pressure cooker, or a crock pot. And those two functions also allow you to use it to make yogurt, steam cook all sorts of things, make rice, poach or hard boil eggs (if you’re vegetarian but not vegan), and scores of other things.

But the secret beauty of the Instant Pot is that you can do any of these things and then just walk away from it while everything is cooking, and it shuts itself off when the cooking time is up, and then keeps your food warm for up to 10 hours!

In fact, that is exactly what I did when I made my Instant Pot fruit crisp: I dumped everything into the pot, set it to pressure cook for 12 minutes, and then left the house to go out to dinner. When we got home, hours later, the crisp was cooked to perfection, and had been kept warm while we were out!

So yeah, I love me my Instant Pot. And I love me some fruit crisp. So, here is my recipe for Instant Pot Fruit Crisp.

Instant Pot Fruit Crisp or Cobbler

5 pieces of fruit (I use 3 apples and 2 pears) cut into chunks
1 cup steel cut oatmeal
1/4 cup date syrup (or honey if you’re not vegan)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cups hot water

Mix everything together in your Instant Pot.

Using the manual setting, cook on high pressure for 10-12 minutes (depending on whether you like your fruit on the firmer or the softer side).

Let depressurize using natural pressure release (NPR).

That’s all there is to it!

P.S. If you want a true cobbler, which of course would not be gluten-free, place uncooked biscuits on top of the fruit before cooking, and increase the cooking time to 15 minutes, give or take.

  1. I really enjoyed this recipe! I did add a little bit of coconut sugar as wee. I found the fruit was cooked to perfection but the steel cut oats were still a bit undercooked and I cooked for 10 minutes. Next time I might cook the oats a bit first. Thanks for sharing!
