I use old-fashioned oats (1/2 cup oats, cover with water and microwave for 2 mintues). Cooks quickly and I only have one bowl to clean :) Additions added before cooking are raisins, peanut butter or sliced bananas which melt and become creamy. Another addition is to beat 2 egg whites, add a few tablespoons of water (depends on how think you like your oatmeal), add 1/2 cup old fashioned oats and microwave 2 minutes.
I also use steel cut but soak them in water in the refrigerator overnight. Cooks much quicker in the morning.
