    I use the Quaker old fashioned (not instant) and just heat a 1/4 cup of it with water and raisins in the microwave every morning I want some. It takes two minutes.

    I eat musli. I either soak them in milk or yogurt the night before or I heat about 3 oz of musli with 8 oz of milk for 3 minutes in the microwave. I let them cool for 30 min (while I drink coffee). Sometimes I add powder protein and it's really tasty.

    Yup, me too. No digestive issues, it just doesn't work. I'm starving within an hour or two. Hiking I will eat uncooked muesli with generous helpings of milk powder over, and I have to forcefeed myself like a goose for it to last past packing the tent... Add some chocolate however, and we're talking

    Me too. That's partly why I don't eat it anymore. Honestly, all cereal grains do that to me....Even if I eat until I'm stuffed, an hour later, I want more.

    I used to do oatmeal AND eggs in the morning and that seemed to work better for hunger control. Then when I dropped out the oatmeal and realized that the eggs held me just as long without the oats, I was sold.

    Normally I take it to work for my lunch: rolled oats, yoghurt, frozen blueberries, almonds, raisins, sunflower seeds (as available in our house). The frozenness of the blueberries helps me stay out of it until at least 10:00.

    Otherwise I just put milk and stuff on it and eat it. I used to do the same with rolled rye, but it made my teeth sensitive. Now that I'm soaking it, I should get some rye again. I really like the taste of it.

    It doesn't take very long to cook in the microwave. I use 1/2 cup of old fashioned oats, some water and cook for 2:10 minutes. Then I add .5 tablespoon of honey when I want it sweet or I will add 2 tablespoons of ground up flaxseed when I want a more nutty flavor (more filling too).

    I don't know about preparing oats days in advance. It seems like they would get mushy but the idea of undercooking sounds interesting.

    Like so many, I too get hungry after about 1 hour of eating oatmeal. I found if I add 1/2 of a chopped apple to the oatmeal, I'm ok for about 2 hours. Not much better.

    For breakfast, this feels useless. By mid-morning I want something hearty like beans with chicken and salsa and tortillas. But for lunch, the oatmeal with apples seems to work just fine. My afternoon snack is more normal like fruit with nuts or seeds and its satisfying.

    Ha, I was complaining about this to my DH and he says "so go eat something" He eats six times a day and is as skinny as a rail I am not that lucky but I do eat a banana now mid morning on days I eat oatmeal and that gets me through to lunch time.

    I've tried cooking up a batch of oatmeal ahead of time but it's too mushy. Does anyone take eitherbquick or old fashion oats and cook in the microwave?

    I use my rice cooker. I have a ten cup cooker, but usually only make 2 cooked cups of steel cut oats. I've found that spraying nonstick spray (even though the rice cooker is nonstick) and the small amount keeps it from boiling over. I also use about 50 per cent more water than the recipe calls for (I think soaking overnight somehow requires more water) I set the timer to cook it overnight so it's ready when I wake up. I don't have a porridge setting, I use the brown rice setting. When it's done in the morning I mix in ground flaxseed (I don't like to cook the flaxseed) and whatever else I want to mix in (sometimes a mushed banana, sometimes nuts, etc).

    It's too hot in Belize for hot oatmeal in the morning, but boxed cold cereals are really expensive here, so I have taken to eating my oats muesli style. I use regular (non-instant) rolled oats and add some whey protein powder, chopped walnuts, chia seed, cinnamon, and fruit (usually banana, mango, and papaya), then add milk. It's a delicious breakfast and so much more pleasant than eating hot cereal, which makes me sweat like crazy here!

    I only regret that it took me so long to think of it.

    I cook steel-cut oats in a double boiler. I boil water in a tea kettle first while the water in the bottom of the double boiler is heating, then add the oats and hot water to the top bowl. It takes the same amount of time to cook as doing it directly in a saucepan, but I don't have to worry about burning the porridge.

    I make rolled oats in the microwave. I use milk as the liquid, but if you put too much, it will boil over, so I put in less than I like, then add more at the end. It takes 3 minutes in my microwave.

    Back when I still ate oats, I would cook steel-cut oats in advance which worked great but I never tried it with rolled oats. What kind of oats did you try this with?
