I have never liked oatmeal, but 3 boxes come in the 5 week pack. I tried the cookies, but they were just gross, like little slimy sponges. Anyone have any ideas? I've liked everything so far...

Scones or muffins or pancakes? Get recipes from for a whole recipe book on Medifast meals or check out Orangeblood's Blog for other great recipes. Sorry about the oatmeal, I personally like it but many do not...

Thanks for the tip. I really want to like oatmeal and have tried many times over my life, but no go. I'm sure as far as oatmeal goes, Medifast is probably good for oatmeal lovers...

Oatmeal - yuck ... scones - KILLER! I have them at least once a day. 1 pkg oatmeal, 1/8 tsp baking powder, a little vanilla and enough water to make them pasty, but not dry. Spoon onto a cookie sheet sprayed with Pam (or they will stick). One package of oatmeal makes 4 scones. Cook at 350 for about 10 minutes.

I just grab one on the way to work. I LOVE em!.

BTW - I used to use Splenda, but I don't anymore - it's too sweet for me...

My mainstay is muffins: 1pkg oatmeal (I use maple flavored), 1pkg chai tea, and 1pk eggs. Add 1tsp baking powder and 1/4tsp baking soda. Make syrup using 1/2c. water with 1tsp vanilla (leave out if you'd like) 1lg tbsp splenda, 1tsp cinnamon 1tsp cloves 1tsp allspice mix and add to dry mix. Put in pam sprayed muffin pan (3 muffins) bake at 350 for 12-15min. You can also sprinkle a lil splenda on top of the muffins before baking..

Adding SF white choc syrup or others. Leave cinnamon, cloves, allspice out and use some of the syrups instead. I love this it's my breakfast every am and it's easy to put in my purse, etc for when I'm at the ranch working, etc. It only makes 3 meals so your not making a doz of something you end up not liking. Muffins are also a great way to work out any bread cravings...

Guess what - Hersheys cocoa only has 1/2 g fat and 3carbs per tbsp. So I swapped all the spices in the muffin recipe for 1tbsp of cocoa...choc real choc muffins. It was great. Only one added carb per muffin...

I make a pancake every day w/ oatmeal and half a cup of water and some cinnamon. topped w. SF walden farms maple or blueberry syrup it is the highlight of my day. I literally jump out of bed for breakfast...

I hated the oatmeal, too! Pure torture...till now!! I used the maple and brown sugar to make a Medifast cookie recipe I found...they're SOO good! I can't believe how filling the 4 are that I get out of one packet! If you don't have a good recipe...message me..

I used to eat the oatmeal plain but I got so sick of it. Here's what I was doing until I finished all my oatmeal..

Idea #1: add flavor drops then cook it normally and add sugar free whipped cream on top, it's kind of like bread pudding..

Idea #2: the various muffin and brownie recipes that abound.

Idea #3: pancakes. I add 1/3 cup of water, vanilla, and cinnamon to it and then cook it like pancakes in a skillet. Top with sugar free maple syrup or walden farms maple syrup (the waldens has no calories or carbs and tastes the same as the sugar free).

Idea #4 and my personal favorite: make bread. mix 1 packet of oatmeal with 1/3 cup egg substitute and cook it like a pancake. then slice it in half and have a sammich!..

Comment #8

I add a 1/2 cup of egg beaters (subtracted from my lean) and make a pancake that I eat with sugar free syrup OR.... split in half and use for "bread." Tastes like honey wheat berry bread to me... it's great! I'm having PBJ today, made with Walden fruit spread and PB2 peanut butter...
