I read this recipe from Dukan diet.It`s very simple and tasty.
A simple pancake that is easy to prepare and to cook. If eaten in the morning for breakfast, it will keep you feeling full all morning.
The basic ingredients: Oat bran, wheat bran, egg and fromage blanc.
Mix it all together. Here some herbs and pepper have been added to this savoury pancake.
A drop of light oil in the pan wiped off immediately with a paper kitchen towel before the pan gets too hot prevents the pancake sticking.
Spread out over the pan and cook on a moderate heat.
Flip the pancake over when golden on the underside.
Ingredients (for one pancake)
2 tablespoons oat bran
1 tablespoon wheat bran
2 tablespoons fat-free fromage blanc
Notes: Fat-free Fromage blanc is a fat-free cream cheese usually sold in the supermarket in 500g tubs. If you are making 2 pancakes, double up the ingredients, but use just one egg for the two.
â¢ Savoury - Add pepper, herbs and garlic if you like.
â¢ Sweet - Add sweetener or diet food flavourings (nuts, chocolate, etc).
â¢ You can substitute the 1 tbsp wheat bran for 1 tbsp oat bran to make a pure oat bran pancake.
Mix the ingredients together in a bowl. If the mixture is too stiff, add a couple of teaspoons of skim milk.
Add a couple of drops of light oil to a frying pan. Wipe off the oil with a sheet of paper kitchen towel.
Spread the mixture in the pan.
Cook on a medium heat until the underside is golden and the upper side starts to dry.
Flip the pancake and cook the other side.
If you make a savoury pancake, add a fried egg if you like. Try some smoked salmon or some low-fat chicken ham. Add some fat free cottage cheese and a sprinkle of herbs.
If you prefer a sweet pancake, serve with some more Fromage blanc if you like or a low-fat yoghurt. There are flavourings available that are sugar and fat free.
With a bit of experimentation, this Dukan Pancake can be made in so many different ways. You will surely find a way of doing it to your satisfaction and you will enjoy it regularly.
