If you're thinking of the recipe where you use one package each of oatmeal, pudding, and eggs, then the recipe makes three muffins (or six or nine mini-muffins depending on what you do with the batter). Or maybe you saw a doubled version of the recipe? I usually triple or quadruple the recipes so I can make a full dozen at a time..
To log it you can just log one of the meals and accept that you'll be off by a few carbs and calories..
Oooooorrrrrr, if you're like me and can't really live with that slop in your nutritional calculatoins :-) you can either:.
A. Eat them in threes (ie; have three in one day) and then log one each of hte mixes you used plus the baking powder (and any condiments you used while mixing)..
B. Take the nutritional value from each one and create a private food with the averages for each value. Then just log one of those. I struggle with this option, though, because Medifast won't show me my Medifast meals all nicely colored in. I'm irrational that way although logging them this way is perfectly legitimate AND makes it so you don't have to consume them in multiples of three on any given day!.
You made me smile with the question because that is exactly the kind of overthinking I do all the time! :-P..
Thanks so much. I realize I am probably overthinking it, but I'd just kind of like to KNOW. The recipe I'm looking at uses 4 oatmeals, 1 pudding and one Medifast eggs with baking powder and water. It makes 12 muffins and dividing that by the 6 packets you use, you get 2 muffins per meal. I haven't tried the oatmeal on it's own because reading the boards makes me scared of the scary oatmeal on it's own...................I appreciate the tips!..
Um, ok girls, you got me all excited about this recipe but then didn't post it!! lol.
I have tried other muffin recipes and they were ok, but not really worth making again, mostly cuz they were rubbery and dry. But I am thinking the pudding would make a big difference with regard to texture and moisture..
So what's the recipe?..
I've tried the muffins before and agree.. kinda rubbery and spongy. Although, there's a similar recipe for pancakes and they're awesome! Here's the one I LOVE! (got it from mfrecipes.com) :.
1 package Medifast Scrambled Eggs.
1 package Medifast Hot Chocolate.
1 package Medifast Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal.
1/2 teaspoon baking powder.
@ 1C water.
Mix in water a little at a time until the mixture becomes the texture of pancake batter. Spray a pan with non-stick cooking spray. Heat pan to medium-hot. Pour batter into 6 medium sized pancakes. Turn over when the bottom side is brown...
Here it is, copied from a blog at http://www.zimbio.com/Recipes/articl...ifast+Oatmeal:.
The following recipe will make 12 regular (but not large) sized muffins and uses 6 Medifast packets (4 oatmeal, 1 pudding, 1 eggs). Two muffins make a meal. I suggest only leaving out what you will eat that day. Surplus muffins can be frozen and later defrosted in microwave or set out to thaw..
You will notice that they have more flavor after they cool. I don't particularly care for them straight out of the oven, but they have nice flavor when cool..
4 pkg of Medifast oatmeal (any flavor will work...try mixing!).
1 pkg vanilla Medifast pudding.
3 tsp baking powder.
1 1/3 cup water.
1 pkg Medifast eggs.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees..
Combine packages of oatmeal, package of pudding, baking powder in bowl. Add anything like cinnamon or splenda (optional) at this point also..
In another bowl combine water and egg package (let this sit for a few minutes while the granules completely dissolve you may want to stir once or twice)..
Now, mix both bowls of ingredients together. Once completely mixed let sit for about 5-10 minutes and then pour mix into muffin pan (standard for 12 muffins) sprayed with Pam (I dont recommend paper cup liners). Place in preheated oven and bake for 25 minutes. Makes a total of six Medifast meals..
2 regular sized muffins = 1 meal.
6 mini muffins = 1 meal.
Easy reference rule of thumb... this recipe uses 6 Medifast meal packets, therefore it will make 6 meals. If your recipe yields a different number of muffins, just divide it by 6 to get the serving size for 1 meal...
