Oat Bran Pancakes Recipe: Dukan Diet - All phases
This is one of the most basic recipes of the Dukan Diet. During all stages of the diet you are allowed to eat oat brand once a day. During the attack phase you are allowed 1.5 tbsp and during the cruise phase you are allowed 2 tbsp. This recipe can be done with either amount of oat bran and be OK.
1.5 or 2 tbsp of Oat Bran (depending on which phase you are on)
2 tbsp of greek yogurt
1 egg (or the equivalent in egg whites)
sweetener to taste (optional - I do not use it - I like my pancakes savory)
Mix all ingredients in a bowl to form the dough - it will be as thick as normal pancake dough.
Spread some PAM on a pan and clean it gently with a paper towel. Put half the batter in the pan and let it cook for about a minute or so or until lightly brown.
Turn it over and cook for about half a minute on the other side. You are done!
I make pancakes almost every weekend for the kids, so I am please that I can still enjoy the pancakes with them. I always have my pancakes with ham and cheese, so I am still doing that - I used a 2% milk based cheese and some fat free cream cheese.
Now to manage your expectations, the pancakes are a little more coarse than regular pancakes, but they are OK, and do not forget, they allow you to still have pancakes while sticking to your diet!
