Sweet Galette – Recipe

This is my preferred way to eat 2 tbsp of oat-bran a day. I recommend making a few at once and putting them in the fridge for another day, because they are kind of pain to make. You could also add homemade sugar-free chocolate chips for a pretty cool treat (https://larrythedood.wordpress.com/2011/07/20/dark-chocolate-truffles-candies-and-chocolate-chips/) This is essentially the same recipe as found in the Dukan Diet Book with a few additions.

  • 2 tbsp oat-bran
  • 2 tbsp fat-free 0% fat plain greek yogurt or quark
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tsp baking splenda, or 2 packets
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch cinnamon
  • pinch nutmeg
  • nonstick frypan or griddle
  1. Warm stove burner to med heat
  2. Combine oat-bran, splenda, cinnamon & nutmeg in a mixing bowl; mix
  3. Add yogurt & egg white; thoroughly mix (at-least 30 seconds)
  4. Stir in vanilla
  5. Place batter on warmed, lightly oiled pan, cook over medium heat until lightly browned about 3-5 minutes. Flip and lightly brown other side.
  6. Place on a paper towel to cool
  7. Enjoy

Note: As the batter sits it will absorb moisture and puff up. This can make it harder to cook and make your galette thick, I recommend preparing the batter less than 2 minutes before cooking. You can also shake you pan from side to side to thin the galette just after the batter is put on the pan. This will give the galette a pancake-like appearance & texture.
