Lemon Ricotta Oat Bran Galette
Oat bran is a key element in the Dukan diet. It can be challenging to find ways to make this stuff palatable. This light and easy pancake is a tasty way to eat your oat bran. Delicious, actually. Makes 1 galette big enough for two. You may cut the recipe in half for a single serving.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
2 egg whites
4 tablespoons oat bran
2 tablespoons fat-free plain Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons fat-free ricotta
Zest of ½ small lemon
1 teaspoon zero-calorie sweetener, such as Stevia.
In a small bowl, beat the egg white until foamy. In a separate bowl, combine the oat bran, Greek yogurt, ricotta, lemon zest, and sweetener. Add the beaten egg white and mix until blended. Place a small nonstick pan over medium heat. Pour the pancake mixture into the pan and cook for around 5 minutes, or until the underside is golden and the upper side starts to dry. Flip the galette carefully (they are fragile at this stage) with a spatula and continue cooking the other side for an additional 5 minutes. Remove to a plate and allow to cool briefly before serving.
- You may use two whole eggs in place of the egg whites if cholesterol is no concern.
- For a treat, cover the top with no-fat no-sugar whipped cream substitute (from a spray can).
- Feel free to experiment.
