The Dukan Diet galette is a tasty breakfast option, and a long-time favorite when I want something warm and bread-like, yet low-carb. The galette is a healthy low-carb, fiber-filled pancake. As a traveler, when I know I’ll have access to a kitchen, I pack some gluten-free packets of oat bran (Bob’s Red Mill) and stop by a grocery store for the other ingredients. Whether you are following the Dukan Diet, counting carbs, or simply searching for a healthier version of the pancake, here’s my tweaked recipe for this sorta delicate little breakfast treat. I hope you enjoy the galette recipe as much as I do!
The Perfect Dukan Diet Galette
Makes 1 yummy galette
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- 2 T oat bran (1.5 T for Attack Phase)
- 1 T wheat bran (optional)
- 1 1/2 – 2 T non-fat, plain greek yogurt or quark
- Dash of cinnamon
Spray an omelet pan with coconut oil or vegetable spray and heat the pan on medium. It’s important the pan is hot, so while it’s heating, mix the first three ingredients together with a fork or whisk until smooth. If you want options like fresh or frozen blueberries, add them to the batter now. Berries do add a few carbs in case you’re counting. Pour mixture into the hot pan and sprinkle with cinnamon. I like a lot of cinnamon. Cook until edges are defined (cooked), but middle is still slightly gooey. Then flip and cook until solid, about 1 more minute. Serve with monk fruit sweetened maple syrup, if desired. Lakanto is pretty perfect.
Mindful Eating: don’t forget to sit down, turn off your devices, and savor this healthy morning treat. It’s important to take time to mindfully feed your body. I consider exercise and good, clean food sources a gift to myself. I want to be healthy all my life, as much as I can help it! It goes back to my “put your oxygen mask on first” mantra. If I care for myself, everyone around me gets the best version, and I have more good stuff to give.
Dukan Diet Galette Ingredients
Get the Book. Includes a lot of lovely recipes.
Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-free Oat Bran, because it’s “pure organic” and sturdy.
Again, Bob’s Red Mill Wheat Bran. I prefer unprocessed everything, when possible. It’s possible!
Sugar Free Syrup
My favorite is Lakanto Maple Flavored Syrup, sweetened with monk fruit. Walden Farms has a low-calorie syrup, too. I don’t recommend syrups with malitol as it generally has unpleasant side effects…if you know what I mean, [Wink. Wink.]
Non-fat, Plain Greek Yogurt
Check the nutritional information and ingredients to make sure there is no added sugar. You can use coconut or cashew yogurt, however, it’s not as “sturdy,” so you may need to adjust your amounts until you get the consistency you like.
Non-fat, Plain Quark
In the dairy section at Trader Joe’s.
Variations for The Perfect Dukan Diet Galette
Mix in any of the following: fresh or frozen blueberries, diced sautéed veggies, or 85% chocolate bits. Note: each of these will increase the carb count.
