The Dukan Diet galette is a tasty breakfast option, and a long-time favorite when I want something warm and bread-like without the carbs. The galette is a healthy, low-carb, fiber-filled pancake. When I know I’ll have access to a kitchen when traveling, I pack some gluten-free packets of oat bran and stop by a grocery store for the other ingredients. Whether you are following the Dukan Diet, counting your carbs, or searching for a healthier version of a pancake, here’s my tweaked recipe for this somewhat finicky little critter. I hope you enjoy the galette recipe as much as I do!
The Perfect Dukan Diet Galette
Makes 1 galette
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 T oat bran (1.5 T for Attack Phase)
1 1/2 – 2 T non-fat, plain greek yogurt or quark
Dash of cinnamon
Spray a small, non-stick omelet pan and turn to medium heat. While the pan is heating, mix first three ingredients together until smooth. If you want options like blueberries, add them to the batter now. Pour mixture into hot pan and sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook until edges are defined (cooked), but middle is still gooey. Then flip and cook until solid, about 1 more minute. Serve with monk fruit sweetened maple syrup, if desired.
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 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
Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-free Oat Bran, because it’s “pure organic” and sturdy. If you are having trouble finding it in your local supermarket, try Trader Joe’s, amazon.com, your local farmer’s market, or a health food store.
Sugar Free Syrup
My favorite is Lakanto Maple Flavored Syrup, sweetened with monk fruit. Walden Farms has a low-calorie syrup, to. I don’t recommend syrups with malitol as it generally has unpleasant side effects.
Non-fat, Plain Greek Yogurt
Check the nutritional information and ingredients to make sure there is no added sugar.
Non-fat, Plain Quark
In the dairy section at Trader Joe’s.
Variations for The Dukan Diet Galette
Mix in any of the following: fresh or frozen blueberries, diced sautéd veggies, or 85% chocolate bits. Each of these will increase the carb count.
