Amanda’s Variations on the Dukan Diet Oat Bran Muffin

This is a very easy post for me as I didn’t have to write it, I’ve only had to upload it, format it and find a picture.

The information in this post comes from Amanda one of the regular visitors to my site who wanted to share the improvements and different flavor variations that she had developed with her husband in search of the perfect Dukan muffin!  Thank you both for your dedication and for sharing this information with us.

Amanda’s Oat Bran Muffin Recipe 

This recipe make 12 muffins or 24 mini muffins and can be doubled to make a cake roll or layered cake.


  • ¾ of a cup of egg whites
  • ½ of a cup of oat bran
  • ½ of a cup of Greek yogurt
  • ½ of a cup of Splenda

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F, 180°C or Gas mark 4.
  2. Whip the egg whites until you reach stiff peaks.
  3. Mix in the Splenda slowly and add flavoring of your choice.
  4. Turn mixer down to low.
  5. Combine all dry ingredients in separate bowl.
  6. Mix yogurt into the egg mixture slowly alternating with the dry ingredients.  If you mix too fast you will lose the fluffiness of the whites.

      Hi Sara

      It is different to normal cake mixes. Hope it turned out ok.

      Best wishes

    i really like the site and the recipes are inspiring. I would find them a great deal more useful if they were flagged with the red, green, orange, blue flags for which regimen segment they are suited to.

      Hi Corey

      Sorry nuts are not allowed on either of the weight loss phases.

      Kind regards

    Can we eat raw aloe vera on the cruise phase?

  • Ango on February 27, 2014

    Hi, thank you for the wonderful recipes!
    Just a tiny question: my cupcakes stayed flat as a shoe! They didn’t rise AT ALL.. Any idea what did I do wrong?
    Thank u so much!

    • Amber on February 27, 2014

      Hi Ango

      Did you beat your egg whites and add the baking powder?


  • Jimmyhat on July 28, 2013


    I usually eat my 30g of oat bran [cruise phase] with a daily 15g of wheatbran. I cook with skimmed milk like I would do with porridge. Is this ok?
    When is the best time to have the oatbran? I prefer after 5pm.



    • Amber on July 28, 2013

      Hi Jimmy

      Making porridge with your oat bran with added wheat bran is fine. It is my favorite way of eating my daily oat bran.

      You should eat the oat bran whenever you feel it provides you with the best result. In your case this is after 5pm and this is fine.

      Kind regards

    Hi Amber,

    Are we allowed pure Aloe Vera Juice during Cruise Period.

    And also I found low fat smoothie fudge ice cream bar (80ml) contains: 80 calories, 0.5g satures fat, 50mg sodium, 15g Gludcides, 1g of fibres and 11g of sugar. Do you think I can have that ?

    Thank you ! 🙂

    • Amber on May 30, 2013

      Hi Wendy

      I’m afraid it’s no on both counts.


      Kind regards

  • char on May 17, 2012

    i think you missed my question about the sweetener 🙁

    and can u post a jerky recipe?

    much love xx

    • Amber on May 16, 2012

      Hi char

      I’ve checked out the ingredients and these yogurts are fine to use if made up according to the instructions.


  • char on May 16, 2012

    hi there, can we use the list of flavorings in the attack phase? Also, can i use sacharrin tablets instead of splenda? if so, how much? Saccharin is 0 carbs, 0 cals / 100g..

    • Amber on May 16, 2012

      Hi char

      Pumpkin and no sugar reduced fat cocoa powder aren’t added until the Cruise Phase but the other flavorings are Attack compliant.

      Best wishes


  • Jaime on March 20, 2012

    How many of these should you eat during the attack phase? If there is 1/2 cup of Oat bran, that equals 4 Tablespoons. If there are 12 muffins made, that comes to 0.3 T of Oat Bran per muffin? So should you eat 4 of them a day to get the 1 1/2 T required for the first phase??

    • Amber on March 21, 2012

      Hi Jaime

      Yes, you’ve got the figures right. 4 muffins would give you 1.33 tablespoons of oat bran.

      Kind regards
