My name is Ami and I am on my fourth day of MF. I am really having trouble eating the oatmeal but really want to make it work. I followed the peach oatmeal muffin recipe and the apple cinnamon cookie recipes exactly as they are on the box but in both cases the inside of the muffin/cookie did not cook enough. So while the outside was crispy, the inside was gooey/wet/raw/undercooked.

I would greatly appreciate if any and all could share how they have modified the recipe so that this does not happen. I need to figure this out because I really want to stick to the Medifast plan but breakfast is my most important and favorite meal and it sets the tone for the rest of my day....

Thanks in advance for your help/support.

When I first tried the oatmeal "cakes" or "cookies" they were hardly edible.. Then I found this recipe on the forums, and it's delicious! Tastes like spice cake!.

Martha's Muffins.

In a bowl:.

1 pkg Medifast Oatmeal mix.

1/4 tsp baking SODA (Box).

1/8 tsp baking POWDER (Can).

Splenda to taste (optional).

Spices to taste (Dry only).

In a 1 cup measure:.

1/3 cup water.

1 tsp white vinegar.

1 tsp vanilla (or to taste, or other liquid flavor, optional).

1. Have a mini bread pan sprayed and ready to go. The oven should be preheated to 350..

2. You MUST have everything ready to go before you mix the wet and dry as the chemical reaction takes place quickly and we want to trap as many bubbles as possible..

3. Mix the dry ingredients well, and then mix the wet ones. Pour the wet into the dry and mix up to a smooth batter as quickly as possible. Pour into pan. Bake for 15-16 minutes..

4. Turn out of pan immediately..

Try this one and you'll keep making it I added pumpkin spice to mine and it was really good. Good luck!!..

Perfect Oatmeal Cookies.

1 packet oatmeal.

1/4 tsp cinnamon.

1 pkt Splenda.

1/3 water.

1/4 tsp baking powder.

1/2 tsp vanilla.

Sprinkle of Butter Buds.

Bake at 350 degrees..

I did not flatten my cookies.

Made 9 little round soft oatmeal cookies.

I tried one after about 10 minutes in the oven and it was still doughy in the middle.

Left them in a couple of more minutes and they were perfect...

Brianne and Dan -.

Thank you for sharing your recipes for oatmeal muffins and cookies with me - I really appreciate it! I am off to the grocery store to pick up some ingredients and then I will attempt to make both of these tonight/tomorrow morning. I will keep you posted once I do. Take care.

Also, you can wait a few weeks and things taste different. I know it doesn't make sense. Didn't to me either when I read it. However, I hated the scrambled eggs and now with 2 tbsp southwest egg beaters, I can eat them...

Comment #5

Wow, this all sounds delicious I'm going to try baking some cookies and muffins tomorrow! Thanks all for sharing what's worked for you.....

Since we all have a muffin recipe - here's mine that I love.

1 packet of Medifast oatmeal.

1 packet of Medifast Vanilla shake (i use the diabetic ones).

1/4 tsp of baking powder.

1 actual egg white.

1 tsp of apple pie/pumpkin pies spice.

Enough water (about a 1/3 cup) to make into batter consistency.

I mix all ingredients well and place into lines, pam sprayed MINI muffin tin. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. This makes 2 Medifast meals of 6 mini muffins each..

Comment #7

So because you are using a pkg. of oatmeal that is suppose to be your meal does that mean you are suppose to eat all the muffins from "Martha's muffins" recipe???? If not then how do you count it?..

Comment #8

I had that problem - I nuke after I bake for 30 seconds. Gets inside done...

Comment #9

Try this option - I'm using it almost everyday. Just take a pinch of baking powder and if need some cinnamon. Mix only enough water to make a batter - nuke for a minute in a small bowl or in a good nukable cup. Really not bad. Quick and transportable and much less ingredients..

Comment #10

I tried Gordoas recipe this morning and it was awesome! I added too much water and had to microwave until the muffin consistency in 30 second increments, but I loved the "muffin" it made......

Comment #11

So what is the portion size and then I assume you don't get any condiments for the rest of the day?..

Comment #12

I count the pinch of both as 1 condiment. I will only bake or mess around with 1 item a day. The rest I leave for my L&G...

Comment #13

I just made some "muffins" in my sandwich maker.

I used 1 packet oatmeal (I used blueberry since that's all I had), 1/3 cup water, 1 T egg white and 1/4tsp baking powder. I mixed it all up and it filled two wells in my sandwich maker. It was really, really good and bready tasting...

Here is my recipes for muffins..

For both recipes the muffins cook at 350 for 20 minutes. Each recipe makes 3 muffins and 1 muffin is a meal..

1 package of Oatmeal.

1 package of scrambled eggs.

1 package of vanilla pudding.

1 teaspoon of baking powder.

1 teaspoon of cinnamon.

1/2 cup water.

Mix all ingredients and spray (Pam) a muffin pan (3 spots) and fill each spot. Bake. To store both types of muffins, cover in a wet paper towel, put in a plastic bag, and put in the fridge. To warm, cover muffin with wet paper towel. microwave for 30 seconds..

Chocolate Muffin.

1 package of Brownie.

1 package of scrambled eggs.

1 package of Chocolate pudding.

1 teaspoon of baking powder.

1 tablespoon of SF Chocolate Syrup.

1/2 cup water.

I make one batch of each and have a muffin every morning of the week. Just a 30 second warm up. Enjoy!!!..

Comment #15

I am glad you asked this question! I look forward to trying some of these...

Comment #16

These sound great!!.

I'm a little leary of making too many cake like items as I have no control over them..

But having a muffin once in a while might go a long way towards making me able to live with this plan...

Comment #17

I use this recipe a lot. I bake it for 16 minutes at 350 degrees in a small fruit bowl by Corelle. Be sure to spray it first with spray oil...
