Not in the West in times of high fire danger, or in high traffic areas, or at high altitudes--all circumstances in which campfires are forbidden or wood is in short supply or both. A wood stove is considered the same as a camp fire (it puts out sparks). Even where there are no restrictions, there's still the problem of trying to burn soggy wood in wet weather!

As for oatmeal, I can't stand the stuff cooked, which makes things simpler. My breakfast is muesli, which is raw oats plus nuts, dried fruit, etc. I rarely use my stove at breakfast unless it's unusually cold and I crave a cup of tea. I guess that gets me halfway to no-cook meals!
