With the Dukan Diet you need to have a daily intake of oatbran and there are a few of us who just can’t stomach the oatbran omelette. After three days of trying hard to eat the oatbran omelette I went on the hunt for another recipe that would give me my oatbran intake for the day but be a little nicer than the omelette. Here is one that I found and is a good alternative for breakfast to get your daily oatbran intake.
Cocoa Oatbarn Cereal
- 2 tbspn oatbran
- 1 tsp cocoa powder (preferably low fat)
- 1 egg yolk
- a few drops of vanilla essence
- a few drops of coconut essence
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and then roll the mixture into small balls. You should get around 12 small balls depending on the size of the balls.
Put them on a baking sheet and bake for around 15 to 20 minutes at 180 degrees celcius (356 degree Fahrenheit).
Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool a little. Add skim milk and enjoy.
I won’t take the credit for this recipe, I did find it on another Dukan Diet website www.mamalifestyles.com I have changed the recipe a little as I didn’t have the wheatbran or almond essence that she has in her recipe, so I changed it a little to suit the ingredients I currently had. As it turned out quite well with those ingredients I will stick to this recipe.
