Dukan Diet Recipes – Chocolate and Cinnamon Oat Bran Muffins

In this post I’m going to give you two slightly different muffin recipes, one for Chocolate Oat Bran Muffins and the other for Cinnamon Oat Bran Muffins as I have to make sure those of you who don’t like chocolate or who like a little variety are also catered for! The great thing about muffins is that you can have them for breakfast, as a snack at any time of day or eat one to round off your lunch or dinner. The best thing about the Dukan Diet for me is that it allows me to feel that I’m not on a diet at all, having a chocolate muffin with my coffee is a well deserved reward rather than a diet breaker.

Chocolate Oat Bran Muffins


  • 6 tablespoons of oat bran
  • 4 teaspoons of reduced fat, no sugar added cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons of zero fat yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • Sweetener to taste


  1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Add the yogurt and eggs and whisk until smooth.
  3. Add sweetener to taste.
  4. Divide the mixture equally between 6 paper muffin cases in a muffin tray.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 15 to 18 minutes.

Cinnamon Oat Bran Muffins

Use the recipe above but

  1. Omit the cocoa powder and instead add 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon.
  2. Reduce the quantity of yogurt to 5 tablespoons.

    Hi Amber! What brand of cocoa powder do you use? Can I use Fry’s Premium Cocoa?

    • Amber on October 22, 2017

      Hi Canada

      Fry’s Premium Cocoa looks to be fairly low in fat so it will be fine to use:)

      Best wishes

    Hi there,
    Just wondering how many of these muffins you can have a day? To stay within your limit for the attack phase and the cruise phase?

    • Amber on June 11, 2017

      Hi Roxanne

      Each muffin will have one tablespoon of oat bran so it is one and a half muffins per day for the Attack and two muffins per day for Cruise.

    How could I turn these into Dukan donuts instead of buying the muffin mix. Great help by the way.

    • Amber on May 5, 2017

      Hi Ginger

      The Dukan Shop recipes are the same for the muffins as the donuts. The donuts are just baked in a donut pan rather than a muffin pan. So I try this with this recipe and just bake it in a donut pan.

    Please can I replace cinnamon with coffee in the attack phase?

    • Amber on April 29, 2017

      Hi Liz

      Yes that would work.

      Best wishes


  • Chloe on January 17, 2017

    Hi Amber.
    I was wondering if you can only eat one of those cinnamon muffins and not eat your two eggs during the Attack phase due to them having 2 eggs in the mixture.

    • Amber on January 18, 2017

      Hi Chloe

      I wouldn’t get too worried about the number of eggs you are eating unless you have a medical reason to restrict the numbers eaten.

  • leiby on January 13, 2017

    is there anyway to make it with the yogurt?

    • Amber on January 13, 2017

      Hi Leiby

      It is made with yogurt?



  • Hillary on January 10, 2017

    Hi. For the chocolate muffins is it okay if I used special dark 100% cacao? For one tbsp it 0.5 fat and 0 sugar. Is that okay?

    • Amber on January 11, 2017

      Hi Hillary

      That will be fine.



  • Anne on December 5, 2016

    Hi I just made these in a mini muffin tin. I am wondering if I need to refrigerate them if I do not eat them all right away and how long they will last. Thank you!

    • Amber on December 8, 2016

      Hi Anne

      Yes they will refrigerate for around 3 days or so.

      Best wishes


  • Melina on October 15, 2016

    Hi , Are these recepies suitable for attack phase?

    • Amber on October 16, 2016

      Hi Melina

      The Cinnamon recipe is OK in Attack. The Chocolate recipe is OK from Cruise onwards.



  • M M on September 26, 2016

    Hi Amber,

    Great site! Thank you for all the hints and tips. I tried making the muffins myself but mine came out really rubbery- any ideas as to why?


    • Amber on October 16, 2016

      Hi MM

      Try adding a little more yogurt and slightly reduce the cooking time.

  • AFAG MAMMADOVA on February 24, 2016

    Hi. I have some questions. Please help me. How many bags of sweetner I have to add in muffins? Can I use Nestle brand cocoa? Thanks a lot

    • Amber on February 24, 2016

      Hi Afag

      Each brand of sweetener is different and it also depends on how sweet you want to make your muffins. You could try starting with the equivalent of one teaspoon in each muffin and adjust up or down depending on how you found it.

      Nestle isn’t reduced fat cocoa so I’d recommend the cinnamon version of the muffins unless you can find a deffated brand such as Skinny Body or Wonderslim or buy Dr Dukan’s own brand.

      Kind regards


  • Ashley on February 21, 2016

    Hi Amber,

    Since my doctor suggested Dukan to me, I’m so grateful to have found your site with all the great advice and recipes.

    I made the cinnamon muffins, thinking that they would be great for breakfast during my Attack days. However, they didn’t turn out for me. I followed the recipe but they were flat and gummy. I’m not sure what went wrong. I triple checked my ingredients before I made them. Any suggestions?


  • Susan on February 17, 2016

    Hi, can I use the normal cocoa powder because I couldn’t find the reduced one.

    • Amber on February 17, 2016

      Hi Susan

      You would need to adjust for the additinal fat and halve the amount allowed for each tolerated food.

      Kind regards


  • Wendy on January 26, 2016

    Are these OK to eat during the Attack phase since you are only supposed to have 1.5 tbsp of oat bran a day?

    • Amber on February 6, 2016

      Hi Wendy

      You can have the Cinnamon muffins on the Attack phase. Cocoa powder is a tolerated food that is added in Cruise.

      If you made 6 muffins from the recipe you could have 1 and a half muffins each day as this would give you your 1 and a half tablespoons of oat bran.

      Kind regards


  • Ana on October 28, 2015

    How many chocolate muffins can I eat on the cruise fase?

    • Amber on November 5, 2015

      Hi Ana

      2 of the 6 muffins each day.

      Best wishes


  • India on August 30, 2015

    I made the non-chocolate version in madeleine molds and they turned out FANTASTIC. Thank you for the recipe.

    • Amber on September 6, 2015



  • Zaynab on August 23, 2015

    I would like to say this chocolate muffins are to die for in the diet world! I made them exactly how its written but in silicone muffin molds. Only thing is but I cant complain about is the oat bran bits shows well in the muffins, so next time I will “flour” the 6 tbsp’s of oat bran.

    • Amber on August 23, 2015

      Thanks Zaynab
