Chocolate Carrot Muffins - Recipe

I did not smooth out the tops so they came out of the oven exactly like I put them in, a little rough looking.

I decided to try a recipe outside of the Dukan Diet book, off a Dukan-friendly website I found. I picked up a few ingredients and will definitely be trusting them for future recipe ideas, these muffins were, DELISH! Exactly what I needed this morning.

Now according to the website you can eat these on PV days during cruise... but I can't you not eat baking powder or cocoa until consolidation? Nevertheless, these were really good, I will be making them again for SURE.


9 tbsp oat bran
1 tbsp sugar free chocolate pudding mix
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract (I used maple, as usual... since that's all I have in my house right now)
4 tbsp pumpkin puree
2 tsp Splenda (I used 8 sachets of Splenda)
1/4 cup carrot, finely shredded and squeezed dry

I didn't think you could actually squeeze juice out of a carrot... I was so wrong! Once it is shredded you can actually squeeze juice out of it. I should have saved the juice, although, I am not a fan. Yuck.

Now I thought 9 tbsp of oat bran would yield more muffins then lets say... the muffin recipe in the Dukan Diet book which only has 3 tbsp of the stuff. They both made about the same amount (4).

Also a little note about pumpkin puree, it should be in a large can. Make sure to read the can very carefully since the one I found was right beside the can of pumpkin pie filling and they are not the same thing (As I have now learned). Pumpkin pie filling is packed with sugar while just the pumpkin is not.

I found the batter was very dense for muffins.

Mix all wet ingredients together in one bowl and all the dry in another. 

Fold wet into dry. 

So easy!

Pam the pan, now, however you put them in the muffin tin is how they will come out. So if you want pretty muffins, maybe smooth down the top. These are dense muffins and not very sweet. They taste almost like chocolate bran muffins because of their density. If you want it a little sweeter you could always add a little more Splenda.

Actually so good!

Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.



  1. the baking powder and cocoa are tolerated items in cruise, so you can have them but in limited amounts. cant remember exact amounts off top of my head. xo

  2. I also discovered these muffins about a week ago, I have been on Dukan for one month (down 14 pounds) and these muffins are great! Just came across your blog through Pinterest, and I love it! Thank you.

  3. The cocoa that's tolerated on cruise can be bought on the Dukan diet shop. UK shop for sure - just make sure the one you're buying has the same/similar levels of carbs & fats :)

    yet I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours.
    It is pretty value enough for me. In my opinion, if all website
    owners and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the
    web shall be a lot more useful than ever before.

  21. So coconut oil is not only good for your skin but also for your hair.
    Coconut oil has amazing properties for fighting both internal and external yeast
    infections. People often make a mistake and only apply oil on the hairs while
    massaging head with coconut oil, hairs cannot absorb any thing hence massaging hairs can only make
    them shine temporarily but cannot nourish them, for proper
    nourishment one needs to massage the scalp as hairs take
    all the nourishment from their roots which are located in the scalp.
