Experimenting with Medifast Blueberry Muffins

Post image for Experimenting with Medifast Blueberry Muffins

Note: This post is still in progress. I don’t think I have this down and would appreciate any advice. Leave your tips in the comments section below.

One of the things I love about Medifast is that it makes me feel like a kid playing around with an EASY-BAKE oven. I never owned one personally, but the girl next door did and I loved going to her house and mixing up the packets of cake mix and loading them into the little oven. Trying to make muffins from a Medifast packet brings back memories of those days… except there’s no icing involved.

The recipe for muffins is on the box of Medifast Blueberry Oatmeal. I missed it until recently because I am not good at reading the fine print. All the ingredients you need (except for a Splenda packet are in the photo above. It seems pretty simple. Let’s do it!

1. Mix Up The Ingredients.

  • 1 packet Medifast Blueberry Oatmeal
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 packet Splenda sweetener
  • 1/3-1/2 cup water (in this example, I used 1/2 cup)
  • 1/8 tsp backing powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Also, I let the mixture sit for a little while. 15-20 minutes.

2. Pre-Heat your oven to 350 degrees

Even I have this part down!

3. Scoop mixture into a greased muffin pan.

For my first try, I used those paper muffin cups. That didn’t work out so well. My results have improved when using a muffin pan. I spray a little PAM on it before scooping in the mixture. The oatmeal is heavier than the water and will sink to the bottom of your mixing bowl, so try to scoop it from the bottom upwards.

4. Bake for 12-15 minutes

This is what mine look like when they come out of the oven. A little sad. While in the oven they are a little puffier on top, but when I pull them out the tops kind of sink in. I let them cool for 5-10 minutes before taking them out of the muffin pan.

5. Enjoy!

Here’s what mine look like. They were a little doughy (or “oat-y”) at the center, but still better than straight up microwaved oatmeal. For the next batch, I will add a little baking time and see how my results turn out. Even with an “oat-y” center, they were pretty delicious.

What am I doing wrong?

I know there are some Medifast experts out there who can probably advise me on some basic things I can do to improve this recipe. I would love to hear from you. Leave a comment below and I will incorporate your suggestions into my next muffin batch.

Hi there,
Here is the recipe I’m using…received from my health coach!!

Ingredients:
1 pack Medifast Scrambled Eggs
4 packs Medifast Oatmeal – any flavor
1 pack Medifast Pudding
Β½ cup Sugar Free Syrup – (DaVinci or Torani)
3 tsp Baking Powder
1 ΒΌ cups Water

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine the scrambled eggs, sugar free syrup, and water. Mix and then let stand for at least 30 minutes.
3. Combine the oatmeal, pudding, and baking powder. (I normally put mine in my magic bullet and make it more of a flour consistency.)
4. Mix the oatmeal mixture into the egg mixture.
5. Spray 12 standard muffin tins and then pour batter into them.
6. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes.

Makes 6 meals. May be frozen.

Enjoy :o)

These look just like how mine turn out. I have concluded the moist center is just how these are gonna be! Once I changed my expectations, they seemed just fine.

I’m not a fan of the oatmeal or eggs so this will help me use up both into hopefully good muffins! Thanks!

is there a substitution for the MF eggs with egg whites?

What if you make them in mini muffin cups? That should address the uncooked in the middle.

try a little baking soda as well, not just baking powder. Start with 1/8 tsp, then try 1/4 tsp.

oh, and I would skip the splenda personally. A touch of applesauce goes well in the apple oatmeal muffin. Use a little less water.

Way too much water in your recipe. The consistency should be thick enough to cling to the spoon when you are putting the mixture into the muffin tin. Add some more medifast oatmeal or use less water. I do as suggested by the medifast coach above and add or subtract things as I like. I also put a carob chip on top of each muffin for fun πŸ™‚
