With about 25 grams complex carbohydrates and about 4 grams of fiber, a one-cup serving of oatmeal is basically enough to get you energized the entire morning while keeping you full till noon. There’s no room for unhealthy brunch breaks or the occasional snacking on sweets even before it’s time for lunch. But the problem with eating oatmeal for breakfast is that it’s not as “hearty” or “fully-flavored” as other breakfast staples like say, a stack of fluffy pancakes with a side of inch-thick bacon, right?

Drool no more. Here are flavorful oatmeal recipes that not only take under 3 minutes to prepare, but also helps you prevent obesity, heart attacks, and diabetes. You’re welcome, world.

Directions for all recipes (yes, this 2-step instructions are what makes these recipes a must-have for rush hour mornings):
1. Combine oats and milk in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook on high for about 2 minutes.
2. Add all other ingredients. Serve.
