I was in the chat room with folks Sunday evening and there were questions about muffin recipes. Here's my favorites: The original Lemon Poppyseed Muffins by Ruth in PA and HeyLoosie's updated version using Medifast eggs & flax seed meal. Both versions are good. Enjoy!.

Lemon Poppyseed Muffins by Ruth in PA:.

3 packets oatmeal.

1 packet French Vanilla Shake.

2 packets Splenda.

3/4 tsp baking powder.

2 tsp lemon or almond extract.

1 tbsp poppy seeds.

1/4 cup lemon juice.

1 cup water.

Mix, spoon into muffin tins sprayed with cooking spray, and bake at 350 degrees for 33 minutes. Makes 8 regular or 16 mini muffins. Equals 4 Medifast meals..

(Notes: I use maple brown sugar oatmeal & I prefer the almond extract for a more mellow taste.).

HeyLoosie's Greatest Muffins Yet.

* 4 Oatmeal (lots of blueberry seems to be the best, although any combo is still good).

* 2 Eggs.

*Splenda (I buy the bulk bag - and I just pour an maybe 1/4 cup...always have).

*2 tsp baking powder.

* salt.

* 8 packets TruLemon.

* 1 heaping tbsp. poppy seeds.

* 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp. ground flax meal (I level these measurements instead of eyeballing them).

* Vanilla Extract and Almond Extract - I just pour these from a bulk bottle (Smart & Final...great for poppyseeds, too) but I'd estimate around 1 tsp. vanilla and 2-3 tsp. almond...I'm generous with it and just pour..

* 1/2 cup SF Almond (I use Torani from S&F).

* 1 cup water.

That's it - I just beat it up with a spoon until well blended, then I just pop them into my silicone muffin pans - makes all 12 muffins - and bake at 350 for only 35 minutes.

2 muffins per serving - each serving counts a 1 Medifast meal...

Here is my favorite.


Makes 8 servings (3 muffins each) and 1/2 tbsp of peanut butter per serving. So I usually eat 2 servings a day until they are gone!.

4 packets oatmeal (I prefer the maple one), 3 chocolate shakes or cocoas, 1 chocolate pudding, tsp salt, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tbsp or so cinnamon.

1 tbsp vanilla, 4-6 tbsp sugar free syrups (I like caramel or choc), 1 cup water (add slowly to create a cake like batter), 4 tbsp low carb/low fat peanut butter.

Preheat oven to 350. Mix the dry ingredients, add the wet. Blend by hand until you get a decent looking batter. Spray a mini muffin tin with Pam (or use the papers) and add batter, dividing evenly (Mine are usually full!) Bake for about 20-25 minutes, time varies of course. Allow to cool or eat warm!.

I am going to experiment soon with adding the eggs but for now this is a darn good muffin!..

Folks should note that poppy seeds aren't on plan...

Comment #2

Poppyseeds are allowed. I just double checked the current Medifast Condiment/Snack List to be sure. We are allowed 3-4 condiments per day and 1 snack per day.

Poppyseeds are listed as an allowed condiment. Up to 1 teaspoon equals one condiment. This recipe calls for 1 Tablespoon = 3 teaspoon = 1/2 teaspoon per serving of 2 muffins = 1/2 condiment.

Also, in case anyone is wondering:.

Ground flax meal is listed as an allowed condiment. Up to 1 Tablespoon equals one condiment. This recipe calls for 1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons = 6 Tablespoons = 1 Tablespoon per serving of 2 muffins = 1 condiment..

Peanut Butter is listed as an allowed snack. 1 Tablespoon equals one snack. Pam's recipe calls for 4 Tablespoons = 1/2 Tablespoon per serving of 3 muffins = 1/2 snack..

Hopes this helps to clarify...

Do you like Cranberry Orange Nutbread? If so, you might want to try this variation of HeyLoosie's Greatest Muffins. Last week I ran out of Almond Torani s.f. syrup so I substituted with Raspberry Torani s.f. syrup, used orange extract instead of almond extract and used Medifast blueberry oatmeal. OMG!! They were so good. Tastes very similar to cranberry orange nutbread. Just discovered my new favorite muffins...

Comment #4

How do you log the muffins in MyMedifast, what category do you find/list it? Just wondering...

Comment #5

This recipe uses 6 Medifast meals and makes 6 servings of 2 muffins per serving. To keep things simple I log it as Medifast oatmeal or Medifast eggs - until I have used up the 6 meals. I also keep the condiments in mind if I have any other condiments that day. There are some people who have logged the recipe into "private foods" and use that...

Comment #6

I'm new to this... one week. And your recipes are going to save me!! I really don't care for the oatmeals as they are. So this will be a life saver. Thank you, Thank you..
