Dukan Diet Recipes – Oat Bran Ginger Biscuits

I’m going to give you two recipes in this post for Ginger Biscuits.  A simple and easy recipe based on the Dukan Oat Bran Pancake, that will provide you with ginger biscuits in next to no time at all and another slightly more involved recipe that I’ve adapted from an official Dukan Diet recipe posted by a moderator on the US Forum.

Fast and Easy Ginger Dukan Biscuits


  • 4 beaten egg whites
  • 3 tablespoons of oat bran
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of zero fat quark or fromage frais
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of dried ginger
  • Sweetener to taste


  1. Put the ginger, egg whites, bran, quark or fromage frais and sweetener in a bowl and mix together.  The mixture needs to be thicker than the pancake.
  2. Add a little of oil to your non stick frying pan and wipe the oil away using a piece of paper kitchen towel.
  3. Instead of cooking as one pancake split make several smaller biscuit sized pancakes.  Depending on how big your pan is and how big you like your biscuits you will probably have to cook 3 or 4 batches.
  4. When browned turn your cookies and cook the other side.
  5. Allow to cool before serving.


Dukan Crispy Ginger Oat Biscuits


  • 3 tablespoons of oat bran
  • 2 tablespoons sweetener
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon fat free yogurt
  • 1/2 egg white
  • 3 drops vanilla essence


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C, 350°F or gas mark 4.
  2. Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well with a spoon.
  3. The mix should not be too runny (you may need to add a little extra oat bran but be mindful of your daily allowance!)
  4. Spoon the mix out on to a silicon baking tray to make four biscuits (that way you can have 2 to make up 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of oat bran which is just right for Attack and to get to two tablespoons for Cruise you could just add the extra 1/2 tablespoon to a yogurt).
  5. Bake for around 12 -14 minutes.
  6. If eaten warm they will be soft and if left to go cold they should go slightly crunchy.

    Hmmmm, could these cookies be used as a base for a cheesecake

      Hi Sophie

      No reason why not!

    What is fromage frais?……

    • Amber on October 16, 2016

      Hi Mu

      A soft white cheese.



  • jan Singleton on October 2, 2015

    How much no sugar jelly can you have in a day in Attack?

    • Amber on October 3, 2015

      Hi Jan

      You can have up to 3 servings each day.

    I have made these several times but have modified the recipe slightly.
    I double the ingredients except for sweetener – I use stevia and use 3 tablespoons instead of 4. I also use a whole egg instead of egg white. Sometimes I add a little cocoa powder for a chocolate ginger biscuit. This makes 6 biscuits and I have 1 of these a day and the rest of my oat bran I have with galettes for breakfast. I am on cruise so need 2 tablespoons per day.

    Can I add some blueberries to these biscuits?

    • Amber on February 7, 2015

      Hi Lee

      Unless you are following the Dukan Diet 2 which allows fruit on certain days or have reached Consolidation on the Dukan Diet the answer is no.

    Thanks for all these recipe’s. Ive been on this plan for 5 weeks now and been the most disciplined I’ve ever been in my life and I’ve lost 17lbs to date. However, its only due to the variety of foods that’s been made available through the dukan books and support from this site. So a very big thank you from me.

    Hello Amber

    I start Dukan diet a month ago and I am so happy with the result and feeling much better, but the only thing that its bothering me is my hair losse a lot and i dont know if this is normal as i didn’t have this problem before the diet?!
    and is it ok if i take collagen capsols with the diet plan??


    • Amber on September 28, 2014

      Hi Abeer

      I’d recommend seeing your doctor as you should not be losing your hair as a result of following the Dukan. If he recommends the collagen capsules you can use them.

      Kind regards


  • Shani on May 14, 2014

    Hi there
    Do you think you could add orange essence or almond essence instead of ginger?

    • Amber on May 14, 2014

      Hi Shani

      No reason why not.



    • Dawn on June 4, 2017

      Even better I add a very high grade essential oil (1 drop) of either ginger or wild orange. My oils are certified for ingestion – gorgeous with other health benefits too.

  • Victoria on October 2, 2013

    Wow! Just made the second type! Yum!!!

    • Amber on October 2, 2013

      Glad you like the recipes:)


  • Sarah on April 9, 2013

    I just tried these biscuits (crispy version) and the texture is pretty good. I’m not the biggest fan of ginger though, so I am wondering if anyone has tried any other flavours? I’m thinking about replacing some of the egg white and sugar with a sugar free vanilla syrup.

    • Amber on April 9, 2013

      Hi Sarah

      I’ve not tried varying the recipe. What about adding some coffee?

      Kind regards


      • Dawn on June 4, 2017

        Omg….lovely idea, chocolate and a drop of mint essential oil, wild orange EO. mixed spice, turmeric (savoury and good anti inflammatory) dried herb, my goodness the sky’s the limit when you think about it 😀 Xx

        • Amber on June 11, 2017

          Hi Dawn

          It just goes to show that you can have lovely food and lose weight.

  • Dukan ginger biscuits | A Picture's With A Thousand Words (Or Less) on July 2, 2012

    I’ve tried both recipes for Dukan ginger biscuits. The first recipe was too much like a pancake but the second recipe was spot on! I just need to get the biscuits the right size!


  • Nigel Walsh on July 30, 2011

    Hi. How many cookies does this make and what is the equivilent to The daily oat allowance.

    • Amber on July 30, 2011

      Hi Nigel

      The choice is yours as they come out the size you make them. You then divide the number of cookies by the oat bran used to work out how much of your oat bran they contain. For example the Fast and Easy Biscuits recipe contain 3 tablespoons of oat bran. If you made 6 cookies each would contain 1/2 tablespoon so in Attack you could have 3 in a day. If you made 8 you could have 4 in a day. You don’t have to have all your oat bran in the same thing. So you could have 2 cookies containing 1 tablespoon of oatbran and then have your remaining 1/2 tablespoon sprinkled on a yogurt.

      Best wishes


  • Ilana on May 9, 2011

    I have question, when you say a very hot oven what temp are you talking about? Also what can replace the fromage frais? Will Greek Style yogurt work?
    Thanks Ilana

    • Amber on May 9, 2011

      Hi Ilana

      That was actually three questions!

      A very hot oven would be around 230 degrees Celsius, or 450 degrees Fahrenheit or Gas Mark 8 but if you have a fan oven you would need to reduce these temperatures a little and possibly slightly reduce the cooking time.

      If you are unable to get fromage frais there are a few ways to get around this. You can

      *use zero fat greek yogurt as you suggested
      *mix equal parts of zero fat cottage cheese and plain yogurt until smooth
      *make your own by draining plain zero fat yogurt in muslin over night.
