    Ok MFers, what is your preference on baking vs. microwaving the brownies? Had my first one today from the microwave...was just ok. Was thinking about baking them in the oven (like a whole box) so that I have them prepared and standing by (especially if they taste better from the oven). What's your favorite brownie prep?.

    I've always just done them in the microwave, it's easier that way. They taste great to me in the microwave so I never felt the need to try baking them. =).

    They taste great to me in the microwave as well. One of my favorite products. I have baked them in muffin tins so I could have several for traveling and they were quite good that way. I mixed them with the soft bake (3 pks each of brownie and soft bake) and made 6 muffins to take on the go!.

    I mostly use microwave bc of time, but they are much better in the oven. When I cook them in the oven, I put the brownie mix on parchment paper on a cookie tray and they are wonderful!.

    I was wondering the exact same thing myself. I want to make some and take them to work. I wonder if they taste less like the soy powder if you bake them in an oven. I can eat the microwave version but I don't think they are yummy..

    I don't like them baked in the oven. I love them microwaved using a little more water and I only microwave for one minute. My micro is pretty high power. They come out a little gooey in the center. Yummo!.

    I nuke mine but can't eat them warm. I always cook mine and then put it in the fridge for at least an hour..

    I usually nuke mine, but really like them in the oven. Next time I make them I'm going to try mixing them in a seperate bowl, spraying the "pan" with Pam and nuking it. I made up a BUNCH of them to take with me on vacation. They were very good for several days..

    I bake them in the oven - an entire box, all little containers on a large cookie sheet. Let them cool, and store in ziploc bags in the freezer, and have with my coffee in the morning. Delicious!.

    You have to try my way once. Mix according to directions, microwave for 30 sec and then freeze for 30 min. They are soooooo good. You will love it!!.

    I do that all the time... perfect! They just pop out! The cookies actually get crunchy. Yummm.....

    Never had them in the oven... thought about it, but never tried it..

    One of my favs as well...SO going to try this! How much water? Thanks!.

    About 8 tablespoons but just add till you get the right texture. I make it more like the brownie texture than the cookie texture and they turn out great..

    I love them in the micro...little more water than called for..1:15 as directed...cool and frost with light cream cheese (I sweeten a whole carton with vanilla sf syrup). I put in the fridge for an hour or so and have one almost every night with a cup of Nighty Time tea!! I eat it with a tiny spoon and enjoy every bite!.

    I haven't baked the brownies yet (I've been on Medifast for almost 10 months!) But I baked the cookie for the first time this week and it didn't necessarily taste differently but it sure did smell differently and it had that fresh baked thing going which made me feel like I was getting a treat! I will be baking my brownie tomorrow to see if it makes a difference - but I'm not baking them all just in case for my first try!! (What if you burn them? there goes the whole box Boooooo lol).

    I struggled for a while to get a good brownie out of the microwave. What I do now is add more water than called for (until it's quite soupy) then I microwave for three minutes at the 7 power. It comes out cakey, like a brownie, whereas before it tasted kind of burned. Every microwave is different, so you might have to experiment..

    I think I'm going to try microwaving thirty seconds, then freezing for 30 minutesthat sounds good!.
