My breakfast galletes

These have really improved since my first efforts 8 months ago.

They are a 9/10. 
I make them in lots of three, as I have three lovely non-stick frypans and any left overs can be stored in the fridge or frozen (reheat 2 x 1 minute in microwave from frozen). My sister also cooks them in multiples as they do take a long time to make and you might as well invest that time every other day, instead of every day :-)

Separate 3 eggs (reserve yolks for Spice cream recipe). Beat the whites until stiff. Meanwhile, in another bowl, mix 6 tablespoons oat bran, 3 tablespoons wheat bran, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, half a cup artificial granulated sugar, and half a pot of quark ~200g and about 1/2 to 1 cup of unsweetened yoghurt to make a thick batter. Fold through the egg whites. Place in preheated frypan, spreading out to make a circle. Cook on low to medium flame, about 5-10 minutes per side. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TURN OVER UNTIL WELL SET. If pancake splits, push together again and they will reform. Serve sprinkled with a cinnamon sugar substitute mix and a large dollop of Forme vanilla yoghurt. 

Sometimes I replace cinnamon with a tablespoon of cocoa for a chocolate treat. 

When cruising, add strawberries to the yoghurt and no one will know that you're dieting. 


  1. For a kind of syrup you can take 2 table spoons cocoa, one table spoon fat free cream cheese, 1 table spoon of fat free plain yogurt and sugar substitute to your taste of course beat together with an electric mixer and voila! If you like it hot just put in the microwave for about 15 to 20 seconds. Everything with this recipe is to taste so feel free to add what you will as you please.
