    It only takes me about 10 minutes to cook and devour my oatmeal. I just use the plain oats (5 minutes) and cook them on a stove top, but you could also use the quick cook (1 minute) and get more or less the same result. Here's my recipe for the 5 minute "old-fashioned" oats.

    Boil 1-1.25 cup water with about 1.5 tsp cinnamon (helps regulate blood sugar)

    When boiling add .5 tbsp butter and .5 cups oats

    Cook 5 minutes

    Remove from heat and add heaping spoonful of peanut butter.

    Stir well until you get a thickened goo.

    Add heaping spoonful of yogurt and stir well.

    Add some nuts or fruit and some raisins. I use a few frozen strawberries. They soften because the oatmeal's hot and they cool the oatmeal enough for me to eat it.

    The whole cooking process only takes about 8 minutes.

    While the oatmeal cooks I am usually cleaning up in the kitchen, getting my lunch together, or getting my clothes together. I do this every day and have a little system so that I don't waste any time.

    I don't know if the steel cut we have at home is like other brands (we've only bought one brand) and I prefer them because of the coarser texture of the oatmeal when it is finished. Apparently, for those who eat gluten-free (as I do), steel cut have less chance of wheat contamination: it doesn't entirely make sense unless there isn't such thing as steel cut wheat so wheat would never get to that part of the processing plant.

    Update: Hah! Just noticed the "aluminum or carbon fiber cut oatmeal", don't know how to respond, cost factor has already been mentioned.

    Steel is real.

    I'm afraid if I spill my cf oats the structural integrity will be compromised.

    Another fan of eggs. You can fry up a couple eggs in the same time it takes to make oatmeal.

    2 eggs scrambled and a bowl of grits with cheese

    or

    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.

    I know you're not serious, but cut oats have a different consistency when cooked than rolled oats, and both come out more chewy than minute oats, which are ok, or instant oats, which make disgusting sludge. There are also different varieties of oats if you have the right place to look. I seem to recall said Winco had red and Scottish oats but I may be confusing oatmeal with beer.

    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.

    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.

    On measured cup of oats.

    Approximately one and half cups of water (use hot tap water if in extra hurry, cold is better but slightly slower)

    Microwave this mixture for 2:30 minutes on high in a bowel 3 times the volume of the uncooked oats and water (microwaved oats puff up during cooking)

    Add one measured cup of cold (from refrigerator) almond milk (or moo moo milk, add something cold to the mix so you can eat it right away).


    Real easy, and quick enough to be done and on the way in ten minutes.


    Otherwise I will eat grape nuts with almond milk, I like them crunchy so I don't wait for them to get soggy. A spoonful of peanut butter mixed in is delicious, satiating, and bumps the nutrition significantly.
    Might I suggest a "triple edit" to (hopefully!) change your microwave container. A "bowl" somehow sounds infinitely more appealing than a "bowel"

    Aside from that, thanks for a great quick oats process - will try it tomorrow.

    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.

    Pour milk or water into oatmeal the night before. It's ready by morning.

    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.

    If you like steel cut, I would suggest you try oat meal made with whole oats (aka groats). Once I switched I have never gone back. Heck, they are almost interchangeable in other recipes that use rice (particularly brown rice). A VERY versatile grain!

    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.
