Dukan Oat Bran Galette Sandwiches
If when you started the Dukan Diet you thought you would have to give up sandwiches altogether then think again: there is an easy peasy way of making delicious Dukan-friendly sarnies by simply replacing the bread with the oat bran galette and filling with no-fat cream cheese such as Quark and your favourite cold meats.
There are 2 main reasons why I love oat bran galette sandwiches. First of all, you never get bored of them – because you can use different fillings as well as flavour your galette with all types of herbs and spices, the combinations are endless so that, unless you have a particular favourite, you never end up eating the same thing twice in the same week.
On top of that, oat bran galette sandwiches can be prepared in advance and stored in the fridge so that, whether you want to take them to work for lunch, as a snack, or simply fancy having something you can munch on throughout the day, you don’t have to get the pan out every time.
How to make an oat bran galette sandwich
Ingredients (Serves 1)
For the oat bran galette
2 whole eggs or egg whites if you suffer of cholesterol problems
3 tablespoons of oat bran if you are on the Attack Phase (+1 tablespoon if in the Cruise Phase)
3 tablespoons of 0% fat Greek yoghurt if you’re on the Attack Phase (+1 tablespoon if in the Cruise Phase)
Your favourite herbs or spices – for inspiration take a look at my Top 20 Herbs And Spices To Flavour Your Oat Bran Galette
For the filling
2 tablespoons of low fat cream cheese
Lean cooked meats (beef, ham, turkey, turkey ham, chicken all work very well)
Let’s get cooking
1. Prepare the oat bran galette following our basic recipe and flavour the pancake batter with spices and/or herbs of your liking before cooking. Once ready, set aside to cool
2. Cut the galette in half and spread a generous layer of cream cheese on each side, just like you would if you were using bread
3. Fill your sandwich with your preferred cooked meat and, voilà, you have a yummy Dukan-friendly sarnie to enjoy!
Take your Dukan sandwiches to work
Oat bran galette sandwiches are the most convenient lunch, snack or even breakfast for you to take to work during the Attack Phase or PP Days. However, because of the egg and cream cheese, you will need to keep them cool throughout the day. Whether your commuting journey takes a while or your workplace doesn’t have a fridge, investing in a small cool bag will help you transport the sandwich as well as any other snacks such as yoghurt which need to be refrigerated at all times.
