How to Eat Oat Bran on the Dukan Diet?

Although oat bran has many health benefits it is not a commonly used food.  This means that many people who are considering following the Dukan Diet have a lot of questions about oat bran and how to incorporate it into their daily diet.

This post is going to give you ten ideas and suggestions on how you can eat your daily serving of oat bran whilst in the Attack Phase of the Dukan Diet.

  1. Make a Dukan Oat Bran Pancake
  2. Add ginger and sweetener to Dukan Pancake mix to make Ginger Biscuits.
  3. Add it to a low fat yogurt.
  4. Use it to make Vanilla Oat Bran Porridge.
  5. Make your own Chocolate Oat Bran Cereal.
  6. Bake Muffins.
  7. Blend bran to reduce coarseness, mix in spices and use as coating for chicken breast dipped in beaten egg.
  8. Make Dukan Toast.
  9. Add to Meatloaf.
  10. Add to Meatballs.

Hopefully these ten suggestions have shown you that eating your daily serving of oat bran is actually going to give your diet a lot of variety and can help make you feel as if you are really not on a diet at all.  How many other diets are there where you get to eat muffins and biscuits!

When you move into the other phases of the Dukan Diet there will be even more ways in which you will be able to use your oat bran.

    • Amber on January 2, 2018

      Hi Tony

      You won’t be able to eat honey on a daily basis until stabilisation, the final phase.

    Not sure how much to eat. Yogart how much? Fish how much? chicken slices how much. thank you

    • Amber on December 20, 2017

      Hi Ann

      You can eat as much fish and chicken as you like. The only food that should be restricted is dairy protein and you need to eat less than 1 kg per day. If a food is measured in ml treat 1 ml as equal to 1 g.

      Kind regards

    Hi Amber
    I believe everybody is sort of asking same kinda questions and mine is not too different but I am still not certain so let me throw it out –

    Can I simply eat the 1.5 tsp oat bran uncooked or not mixed with anything – plain on its own so 1.5tsp scooped out Of the packet and in my mouth ?

    • Amber on September 16, 2017

      Hi Dee

      Yes you can eat the daily serving of oat bran however you want.



  • Heather on August 30, 2017

    I really want to make the muffins in the picture, but none of the links take me to that recipe. Did you add cinnamon and sweetener on top of the cinnamon oat bran muffins or ??? They look so good.

  • Robin on May 31, 2017

  • V on January 21, 2017

    Hi, do I have to eat protein or protein and veggies on PV days with the oat bran? or can I just eat it on its own as porridge ? Also is it ok to have it with Arla lactofree skimmed? I find that it has a lot less sugar than skimmed milk, Thanks!

    • Amber on January 22, 2017

      Hi V

      No you don’t have to have anything with your oat bran porridge on either PP or PV days and having check out the nutritional information lactose free skimmed milk is fine to use.

    Do I cook the oat bran when I want it with yogurt?

    • Amber on January 12, 2017

      Hi Jane

      You could have it as a porridge with yogurt but the easiest way is just to stir it in uncooked.



  • Judy H on November 14, 2016

    May I make the oat bran into the cereal by adding water and microwave? Or do I have to eat it raw not microwaved?

    • Amber on November 15, 2016

      Hi Judy

      I think the oat bran made into a porridge in the microwave is the best way to eat it.


  • CYNDI SHAW on October 31, 2016

    Can I just eat the 1.5 teaspoon a day without making pancakes or muffins?

    • Amber on November 1, 2016

      Hi Cyndi

      It is 1.5 tablespoons and you can eat it in different ways. My favourite is porridge.

  • Wipr on April 16, 2016

    I just started on the Dukan diet however due a gastroparesis condition that i suffer i cannot eat oatbrand can this be substitute with cream of wheat

    • Amber on April 17, 2016

      Hi Wipr

      Just leave it out. There is no approved substitute for oat bran.

      Kind regards


  • Krystal on February 19, 2016

    I was looking at the galette recipe and it calls for 3 tbs of oat bran. On the attack phase it says to consume 1.5 tbs. daily. Is this a minimum or maximum amount of oat bran. Meaning, if I have a galette breakfast sandwich, can I not have a sandwich for lunch? Or a sandwhich for lunch and a muffin for breakfast?
    Thank you!

    • Amber on February 23, 2016

      Hi Krystal

      The maximum is 1.5 tablespoons per day. The recipe gives you enough for 2 days. If you make small muffins and galettes particularly in Cruise where you are allowed 2 tablespoons per day you can eak out your daily limit so that you get two servings of oat bran. Many people use a tablespoon of wheat bran to make their oat bran go further and to help combat constipation.

    Hi, I at times cannot eat dairy but i am looking for something sweet on cruise phase to use my oat bran for…any ideas?

    • Amber on January 3, 2016

      Hi Max

      How about porridge made with soy milk and sweetener?

  • Farida on December 4, 2015

    Hi. Can I mix a little chiken curry in my cooked oat bran. Also in the attack phase can I distribute my 11/2 tbls of oat bran throughout the day.

    • Amber on December 14, 2015

      Hi Farida

      Yes you could put the oat bran in a curry and you can spread it through the day if that suits you best.

      Best wishes


  • Nooshin on October 22, 2015

    Are oat meal and porridge allowed in Dukan diet? specially cruise phase?

    • Amber on November 5, 2015

      Hi Nooshin

      Only oat bran can be used.

      Kind regards


  • Peter on August 2, 2015

    Can you have feta cheese

    • Amber on August 6, 2015

      Hi Peter

      Fat free feta cheese is high in sodium so is best avoided. Stick with ricotta or cream cheese if you can.

      Kind regards


  • Karen Guy on September 22, 2014
