Don't overlook the wonderful "steel-cut" oats, often referred to as Irish oats. For quick preparation in the morning, they can be pre-prepared at night and microwaved in the morning, sometimes needing a bit more water added. Anything from fresh to dried fruit tastes great on it!!! I love it with fresh pineapple.
