Question I have... How soon can I go on a Dukan Diet after childbirth? Many thanks for any response. Another question on my mind: I don't know if Sugarcookie is still around but I dug up a Pumpkin muffin recipe from her from 2002 that looks really good I just made it it's in the oven I added some Flax Seed Meal to it to up the protein and Fiber in those dang pancake mixes lol.

Note: I don't know what she considers a large muffin but I only got one average size muffin if you look at my picture I used a ramekin dish the batter filled to about 3/4 of the way up so that should give you an idea of the size....

Here is Sugarcookies Original Post:.

Okay, I made them. They are cooling right now...and smell divine. I can't wait for breakfast. I suppose this could have made two large muffins instead of three small ones...but I didn't want to screw this up, so I made three..

Pumpkin Muffins.

1 Dukan Diet breakfast.

1 fruit*.

1 fat*.

1 Dukan Diet pancake mix.

1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice.

1 1/2 tsp or 1 packet Splenda or to taste.

1/4 tsp baking powder.

1/4 tsp vanilla extract.

1 tbsp + 1 tsp milk.

Mix these ingredients into a thick batter, then fold in:.

1/4 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix, or "golden" pumpkin).

*2 tbsp raisins, if desired (fruit serving).

*1 tbsp walnuts, if desired (fat serving).

Spray three muffin cups with non-stick cooking spray. Distribute batter evenly in muffin cups. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until the tops are golden, and spring back when pressed. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with reduced fat cream cheese, or sweetened yogurt cheese...

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I bump into an useful answer. You should email the people at Dukan Diet as they probably could help you..

Comment #1

It lasts for a while in the fridge. you can add it to pancakes, cottage cheese, etc. there are a lot of pumpkin recipes. you probably could bake up more muffins and freeze them. they look very good...

Comment #2

Good idea maybe I will make more muffins with it tomorrow provided I like it hehe and then freeze them good way to use up some of the Dukan Diet pancakes that I will otherwise not use because they don't fill me up lol..

Comment #3

This also works in one pyrex bowl, microwave ~ 3 1/2 - 4 minutes on high in the microwave. cover with a folded paper towel.....

Comment #4

I am not a big fan of microwaving I don't like the spongy texture hehe sorry I am wierd... I should try it again sometime maybe I will... I think my problem was I made the microwave thing the night before and it got really moist in the bag so it was moist and gooey hehe..

Comment #5

You can freeze the extra pumpkin also put into small plastic containers, so you only defrost a small amount (faster defrost also).

I generally use baby food instead of canned pumpkin the Gerber (or other's) 2nd's size (3.5 - 4 oz) work nicely as 1/2 cup.

Check my breakfast & dessert files, I think there are several pumpkin recipes in there (including this one).


Comment #6

1/2 cup = a vegetable serving.

I'm not crazy about pumpkin but have had it cold mixed up with free items and it is not too bad..

1/2 c canned pumpkin, 20 cal of FF Cool Whip, cinnamin, and a package of Splenda..

Comment #7

I would love to try some of these, but I'm not very good at adjusting for high altitude. I don't bake nearly as much as I used to since moving...

Comment #8

I agree RJNM, the high altitude in NM is strange, I didnt know it could effect cooking til I got here. I was at sea level for 2 yrs overseas...

Comment #9

Not familiar with high altitude baking but it seems to be an issue and no magic fix on the recipes bit of trial and error. if you are adventurous and patient and want to experiment, here is a website with some suggested modifications to recipes..


Comment #10

I've read many sites about high altitude cooking, but it really doesn't help me too much. It's all trial and error and I'm not willing to waste food trying. I've only managed to make a really good banana bread (but can't eat that now). My cakes turn out horrible so we've resorted to other things for birthdays...

Comment #11

Fortunately I don't have to deal with those issues - i'm challenged enough in the kitchen as it is. i'm sure if you flew Christina Gray out for the week she would be happy to fix the recipes for you!..

Comment #12

O yeah good idea I could get really small containers they probably hold about 1/4 cup that would be perfect portion I will def do that I am on a pumpkin kick now tho so I might use it up quick lol... that ff cool whip and pumkin sounds weird but good... lol..

Comment #13

I made this recipe a couple weeks ago baking it in a single dish like the 'Paul's Apple Bundt Cake' but.

Used the Chocolate Chip Pancake mix.

....I really liked it!! Little cool whip on top...I thought it was yummy!..

Comment #14

I thought the pumpkin counted as a fruit. Is it considered a veggie?..

Comment #15

Yeah people are saying it is counted as a starchy veggie either way I am going to work it into my day somehow as a treat I am sooooo full right now... I just took Chubbybikers recipe and used pumpkin pie spice instead so it was a lil bit of pumpkin, ff cool whip, splenda, and pumpkin pie spice and stirred it up and I had it with a golden pound cake and OMG I am so full I am ill can't eat another thing haha it was soooooooooooooo good... THANK YOU CHUBBY BIKER..

Comment #16

Too bad Virginia is far from NM otherwise I am sure she would love to fly out and help me and RJNM...

Comment #17

1/2 cup of pumpkin is a veggie, 1 cup is a fruit. fruit serving s/b approx 60 cals and veggies approx 30 cals. you can substitute one fruit serving for 2 veggie servings (occasionally as this isn't something you want to do all the time)...

Comment #18

Although 1 cup is a fruit serving, when I use canned pumpkin I always do 2/3c to keep the calories more in line with a fruit serving...

Comment #19

Thanks for this recipe! I like the idea of using baby food (my 5month old won't even notice...)..

Comment #20

Lol it's like stealing baby food from a baby..

Comment #21

Just wondering where you get pumpkin baby food? I cannot find it anywhere...

Comment #22

Lol pumpkin baby food I wonder how baby's like it... It has to be yucky to just eat straight pumpkin... I forgot about the baby food idea I am going to have to check that out myself... wonder what flavors they have... are they sweetened at all? you think they have zucchini? lol..

Comment #23

I know that ive seen squash that is orange like pumpkin never seen pumkin baby food though...

Comment #24

Coolness, I will get squash for this recipe and see how it turns out..
