I didn't like it as well as the Vanilla Berry either. I read somewhere to put 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla in it and that helps. I did that plus I added a sprinkle of cinnamon and now it taste good. Hope this helps...
Oh my god, I thought it was just me. I am sitting here actually choking down the blueberry oatmeal right now! It really does have an overwhelming fake sugar taste! Blech! I will have to try the vanilla and cinnamon idea. I usually love the oatmeals, but this one leaves a lot to be desired! Thanks for the post!.
I just converted the Brownie recipie cause I only had the Blueberry oatmeal left. They taste okay a little bananay which I was surprised because it is only one pack..
4 packets of Blueberry oatmeal.
3 packets Vanilla Shake.
1 packet banana pudding.
Tsp baking powder.
1 tsp of vanilla extract.
4 packages of Splenda.
3 tbsp of canola oil..
I'm not a fan of the blueberry oatmeal either. Is it just me and how I am preparing it or is the blueberry oatmeal a bit thinner than the other oatmeals?.
I always put one cup of water in all the oatmeals and everyone of themexcept blueberryare thick like oatmeal is supposed to be. Even if I add a bit less water to the blueberry, it is still thin..
Anyone else experience this? Maybe I am doing something wrong.
Don't think so. Wish Medifast would post this in their R & D Dept: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" Wish they'd bring back the vanilla/berry oatmeal...
Can't stay out of this one.....
I will be VERY upset if the blueberry oatmeal is gone....VERY upset. It is far superior to the Vanilla or whatever flavor that was for all those months leading up to the change in August.....
I LOVE what the blueberry oatmeal does to the muffins - even if JUST ONE package is added to the mix of 4 oatmeal packets.....
I just can't stay silent and let the negative comments ride when I feel so strongly the opposite. Now it is more balanced, altho' I'm apparently still the only one who feels this way. (Hey, Prez, there's my 2 cents ).
(P.S. - those muffins have me in 6's today.....)..
I don't really like oatmeal, but I used the blueberry oatmeal and banana cream pudding in the "best cookies ever" recipe.. a couple times now.. LOL If I don't put them away them hubby will eat them. He really likes them too. I second the hope they keep the blueberry.
How odd.....on my last order I received both kinds, the Vanilla berry and Blueberry and they taste the same.
JMHO, but I love all the oatmeals, and I even had a cup of water to all of them and always get a perfect oatmeal. Do you think some of these packets have less Medifast in them?.
I wouldn't know anything else that could be accounted for concerning this problem.
Just like Loosie, I've lost alot of pounds eating the oatmeal.....and TWICE a day!.
Hot oatmeal in the morning and muffins every evening.
I'd swear this is what is keeping me from cheating as the oatmeal products are satisfying...
I would recommend if you are looking to get a similar vanilla flavoring, try add 1-2 tsp of vanilla extract to your oatmeal...
NS, vanilla flavoring doesn't cancel out the overwhelming taste of sweetener. Since some people like the bluebery oatmeal and most of us prefer the vanilla berry, is there any chance of the vanilla berry coming back?.
I used sugar free maple syrup on my blueberry oatmeal today. I figured the taste would be strong enough to drown out the flavor of the blueberry oatmeal. It worked but it's not fantastic.
I think I'll try the vanilla and cinnamon tomorrow. thanks...
I love the blueberry. I started after the other one was gone, so I don't know what I'm missing. But, I love it as oatmeal and pancakes and am excited to try it as everything else!..
I like to make the Blueberry Oatmeal into scones. They are not quite as "greasy" as muffins. Here is the recipe that I use:.
Amy's Scones: 1 pkg. Blueberry Oatmeal, 1 pkgs. Splenda, 1/4 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp SF vanilla syrup, 1/8 tsp lemon extract, 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, scant 1/3 cup of water. Mix the dry ingredients together. Add the wet ingredients and stir.
Spoon onto Pam sprayed cookie sheet, into one scone (like a biscuit). Bake at 400F for 20 minutes.
I usually make two scones and bake for about 15 minutes. In fact, I make 6 packages at a time makings 12 scones..
I have found that the lemon extract helps cover that funny aftertaste. They are very good and bread-like. I eat them at least once a day and sometimes twice a day. They are also very easy to take along with you when you have somewhere to go...
I love the blueberry oatmeal with just a little cinnammon and 1 pk of splender..
Yummy and very filling..
Since it's the weekend, I finally decided to try the pancakes. Man, I ate them three times yesterday and already had them for breakfast today too. The only thing is you have to let the batter sit for a few minutes so that the blueberries have time to hydrate. I can't eat this during the week though, no time. I guess I'll just save my blueberry oatmeal for weekends as this is by far the best option I've found for it. I've tried the muffins and scones and the blueberry, even with adding vanilla, seems blander when you bake it than the berry vanilla was...
I was glad to see that you tried the pancakes, as I was reading through the thread I hadn't seen much on that...i LOVE the blueberry oatmeal, as pancakes! A real treat! So far I just spray some "I can't believe it's not butter" spray on them along with SF maple syrup, but I plan on trying to spread a little of the SF flavored syrup for coffee sometime too, maybe the huckleberry. I am waiting for my shipment of extra blueberry oatmeal I ordered when I heard it was on sale....yummmmmy pancakes!..
I can't choke down any of the oatmeals as actual oatmeal, so I turn them into cookies each morning and they are fantastic! I swear by them. They get me through the mornings. Try this with the blueberry... you may like it!.
1 packet oatmeal.
3 tbsp splenda.
1/4 tsp baking powder.
1/4 tsp of vanilla or some other flavoring (almond is good with bluberry).
Spices to taste (I use apple-bake, allspice, cinn., pumpkin spice etc. mix it up!).
Mix it up, stick it in the oven at 350 for 8-12 min (8 is gooey, 12 is crispy... ten is just right for me,) and enjoy!.
Hope this helps!..
I love the Blueberry Oatmeal, too. I wouldn't say, from reading this and other threads that more of us prefer the old Vanilla Berry. Seems like there are just as many of us who are fans of the new stuff. I did like the VB Oatmeal a lot, but personally prefer the Blueberry. I love it in muffins, scones, pancakes, and just as oatmeal. I admit I do use a bit of vanilla when I'm having it plain because it's particularly yummy that way - to me. Shoot, in my last order, I purchased six boxes! It is always interesting how our tastes differ, huh?..
I'll have to add my 2 cents to this one as well. I like the blueberry oatmeal. I tasted the vanilla-blueberry and to tell you the truth, they both taste the same. I've only eaten it plain with a little splenda. I usually use the other oatmeals to make cookies, but I'll definitely have to try the blueberry pancake recipe...sounds yummy!..
