Regularity Muffins

Submitted by: SUNNY112358

Introduction

I devised these to aid--ahem--regularity on the Dukan Diet, hence ingredients and measurements are based on the Dukan requirements (oat bran is 2 Tbsp, the daily dose for Cruise phase). But they would be useful for anyone who wants to prevent constipation, and they are actually quite tasty even for non-sufferers.
Recipe is based on principles of Irish Soda Bread so once liquid is added you have to work quickly.

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    140g (1cup) oat bran
    35g (1/2 cup) wheat bran
    40g (1/4 cup) linseed/flaxseed (ground in coffee grinder if possible, but can use whole)
    1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 pinch salt
    250ml (1 cup) buttermilk, or sweet milk acidulated with 1 tsp vinegar or lemon juice

Directions

Preheat oven to 200oC / 400oF
If you don't have buttermilk on hand, stir vinegar or lemon juice into ordinary milk and set aside to sour while you are preparing the dry ingredients.
Weigh or measure oat bran, wheat bran and flaxseed/linseed into a mixing bowl.
Rub bicarbonate of soda between palms over the bowl, or sift, to ensure there aren't any tiny clumps which would taste foul.
Add baking powder and salt, mix thoroughly.
Prepare 8 muffin tins (silicone are easiest to unmould and don't need greasing).
Add buttermilk or acidulated milk to dry ingredients, mix thoroughly but quickly. Don't overwork. Speed is of the essence here because the acid in the milk activates the bicarbonate of soda and makes bubbles which lighten the muffins; if you wait too long it will lose this effect. Distribute evenly among 8 muffin tins and bake immediately for 20'.
Leave in tin on rack for a few minutes before unmoulding. One muffin is daily oat bran requirement and wheat bran tolerance on Dukan Diet. Keeps for over a week in tupperware container or plastic bag in fridge, can be reheated in toaster or microwave. If you used whole flaxseed/linseed chew well to break them so you get benefit of their omega oil.

  • these muffins are really good, made them 4 times, I had to add 1/4 cup sugar substitude, and added fruit and walnuts, etc. raisens, blueberries, also added more milk. They were handy to take anywhere. Just wonderful for no flour or eggs or no added fat. - 6/27/11

    thank you for commenting on my recipe, Sillyweight
    If your plan allows additions such as fruit and nuts by all means play around with the recipe--unfortunately these are not permitted on the Dukan diet

  • Thanks Sunny! I do a very similar version of this recipe but I use greek yogurt instead of milk and I add splenda and plenty of cinnamon for a sweet, baked treat! And when I go to a party, I top it with fat free, sugar free pudding/jello and that keeps me contempt! - 5/2/11
