|Dukan Chocolate Oat Bran Muffins|
We tried adding raw cacao nibs (0 grams of sugar) which are great in smoothies, but seemed a little too bitter in these muffins - perhaps we need to add less nibs. In smoothies, the nibs taste just like chocolate chips! The cinnamon version is also very delicious.
We've made these with all oat bran and with oat bran with wheat bran and both taste great. The ones with wheat bran are a little more muffin like. A great way to get your daily does of oat bran.
Makes 6 regular sized muffins
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 15-18 minutes (for our oven it usually takes 20 minutes)
1 t. baking powder
2 1/2 T. unsweetened cocoa powder
3-4 T. natural sweetener (REVISED - original recipe called for 6-8 T, but it was too sweet for us)
4 T. oat bran (fine)
2 T. wheat bran
6 T. plain Greek yogurt
Preheat oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Add wet ingredients, stir well. Pour batter into muffin pan (we use muffin liners for less clean up). Bake for 15-18 minutes or until done. Cool and enjoy.
These muffins make a great breakfast or snack.
