Here are some studies:
high fat breakfast and impact on weight
skipping breakfast and impact on BMI on young children
eggs and energy deficit diet and weight loss

Another fan of eggs. You can fry up a couple eggs in the same time it takes to make oatmeal.
Cyclists of the world, unite! You have nothing to lube but your chains!
2 eggs scrambled and a bowl of grits with cheese
2 eggs sunny side up and a side of french fries if I have the time to make the fries. I like crinkle cut fries myself.
protip: dip your fries in the runny egg yolks. mmmm.
And if you get tired of oatmeal every morning you can make yourself some oatmeal stout.
A vote for muesli... especially if you already like oatmeal. Mix uncooked quick oats, almond slivers and raisins for 5 minutes in milk or almond milk. Enjoy.
Occasionally, I will soak this overnight using thick and uncooked rolled oats ("old fasioned"). Even better.
Better than the mushy oatmeal ... a substantial meal.
Müsli with OJ just like it was originally intended.

I make brown bread in half-pint jars, just the right size for breakfast, pull a mini-loaf out of the jar on my way out the door and eat while riding.
If I'm really hungry, a boiled egg in my pocket for after the bread.

I like old fashion oatmeal, and to me, it tastes better after sitting for an hour or more after cooking.
What I do is make it (plus oat bran) on the weekend, enough for the whole week. Let it cool and put into a container for the fridge.
Then each morning I spoon some into a bowl, add raisins, then microwave it... that part is fast.
I liked reading about some of the other options on this thread.
I keep a whole supply of different breakfast cereals on hand, and just eat a bowl with fresh fruit and almond milk. Takes about 2 minutes max to prepare and 5 minutes to eat. I eat steel-cut oatmeal in winter, but don't like hot cereal when the weather is hot. When I make oatmeal, I soak it overnight and just warm it up in the morning. I add various dried fruits and nuts and sometimes yogurt to make it less bland.
I know you said fast and I can do breakfast FAST..
On Sunday I hard boil 20 eggs and make big pot of grits. In the mornings I eat the 4 egg whites and a bowl of grits, to warm the grits I take what is essentally paste put it in a sealed rubber maid bowl add 1/3 cup of water and stick it in the micro for 90 seconds add butter, salt or cheese.
I tend to eat a banana or pineapple or mellon and some cottage cheese and call it good.

I put instant oats in my smoothie. They liquify well enough and thicken up the shake.
BTW, most wheat is stone ground not cut.
I usually eat after I get to work, not before. I frequently do the big batch of oatmeal, dried fruit, nuts thing in the crockpot over the weekend. I divide it up into several plastic food containers, freeze them, then bring them into work to be pulled from the freezer there and microwaved at my leisure.
OJ, Banana, small cup of coffee and an Oatmeal cookie.
