Disclosure: This post includes affiliate links. During the first 2 phases of the Dukan high protein diet, the only carbs you’re allowed is a serving of oat bran, which is naturally gluten free. Gotta get that fiber my friends!
I typically make it just as you would oatmeal with milk, but it gets a little boring eating the same old same old breakfast every morning. So today I’ve created an oat bran muffin recipe that is Dukan friendly and evokes those Fall-inspired pumpkin spices that I just love oh so much. I am obsessed with pumpkin anything and of course Halloween so I also did a little simple Halloween decorating to feel festive. Yay for Fall!
The result of this recipe is 5 muffins so you can mix up your week’s oat bran intake with this delicious little muffin. Enjoy with a nice coffee or tea and even some eggs (high protein diet y’all!) for a delicious breakfast. The oat bran is the only food item that you have to measure on this diet, as you are allowed as much low fat protein as you would like, which I love. I haven’t been feeling hungry at all and have been doing so great losing weight.
