Got a question... Is Chicken a good Dukan Diet food if I am running and excercising to lose weight? Hoping for any response. My other question... I am "addicted" to Starbucks' raspberry sconesthe only problem is, they have 440 calories and 65 grams of carbs!.

I had to find an alternative and have been playing around with this recipe for about a week..

I made these this morning after modifying Chris's scone recipe (will try to post a pic later this afternoon):.

Raspberry Scones.

1/3 cup low-carb pancake mix.

1 tbsp Splenda (I used a bit more, I like mine "sweeter").

1/2 tsp Raspberry extract.

3 tbsp FF milk.

8 plump raspberries.

Combine first 4 ingredients; mush in raspberries. I baked them in a mini-muffin pan (6 muffins), spritzed with Pam, at 375 for about 10-12 minutes. Just before they came out of the oven, I sprinkled them with a few grains of raw sugar (you can omit)..


Stats for the pancake mix:.

130 calories (for all).

1 g fat.

18 grams net carbs (24 carbs).

I haven't figured in the stats for the FF milk or the 8 raspberries yet. Chris, if you're reading thishelp!.

These are sooooooo good!!..

Yep, but you might want to make sure and wait for another person here to confirm my answer as I am not very confident. Better yet, why don't you contact the Dukan Diet guys because they can give you help better...

I love raspberry anything so I will definitely try these!..

Comment #2

OMGosh....i love scones TOO darn much ! I will try this..thanks..

Comment #3

I love Starbucks' lemon-poppyseed scone. Wonder if I could your recipe into lemon-poppyseed? Would adding lemon extract and poppyseeds be enough or should I try adding lemon zest/pieces as well?..

Comment #4

What makes a "scone" a scone? The shape of the pan?.

What is the difference in the recipe that would make it a scone and not a muffin or a pancake?.

I'm not much of a cook, so I'm curious how to turn it into a scone. I don't want to goof up and make it taste/feel like a muffin...

Comment #5

I have always seen scones as a denser, sweet, flavored biscuit. I may be wrong. It is all dough as my DH would say...

Comment #6

Sounds wonderful. I'll make them. Thank you for posting it...

Comment #7

O M G.

Kelly this recipe is fantastic! I don't have a scone pan or a mini muffin pan (yet!) so I just doubled this and made two muffins. I just bought fresh raspberries today from the market. Hands down the best muffin I've ever had! I am so going to get a scone pan for these! I didn't eat both but I am so going to eat the other one for breakfast tomorrow..

Thanks girl!..

Technically a scone has a cream base. What Dukan Diet calls a scone is so definitely not a scone - it's closer to a dry tea biscuit...

Comment #9

I found this on a website for low fat chocolate chip scones......I modified the recipe to make 2..........which is equivalent to using 1/3 cup of low carb pancake could easily add in lemon zest/poppyseeds, or apples, raspberries, blueberries, etc..........and substitute splenda and ff milk, etc...........very similar to your recipe formalone!.


1/3 cup all-purpose flour.

1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar.

1/8 teaspoon baking soda.

1/8 teaspoon salt.

2 teaspoons white sugar.

1-1/2 teaspoons applesauce.

1 teaspoon water.

1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon milk.

2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons chocolate chips.


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease two baking sheets..

In a large bowl, combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt and sugar. Add the applesauce, water and milk; mix well. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop large rounded spoonfuls of batter onto prepared baking sheets..

Bake at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 15 minutes. Let cool before serving..

You could probably cook them in the puff pan too for smaller/quicker mini puff/scones..............

WOW, Benay! Melted in the microwave and drizzled on top....that would be so yummy!!..

Comment #11

Hi Jenn! I'm so glad you're diggin' on these! I've increased the raspberry extract to a full teaspoonI love the flavor!!..

Comment #12

Yea I made another batch and I used more than 8 raspberries per muffin for sure LOL.

I bought them at the farmer's market and they are SO sweet, I couldn't resist...

Comment #13

Raspberries are my absolute favorite fruit right now! I could live on them!.

I know this sounds "different"but I use them in my chicken salad now, too!!..

Comment #14

No I could totally see how it would be tasty!.

I got some strawberries and raspberries and I seriously can't decide which are my fave right now..

Comment #15

I got some blackberries todayI've never had them, we'll see what I end up doing with them! I think blackberries, a little Splenda, and a little FF half and half...kind of like berries 'n cream....I'll keep you posted!..

Comment #16

Raspberries, strawberries & blackberries are all wonderful in a green salad with diced grilled chicken as well. Dried cranberries & cherries and grapes cut in half are also good in chicken salad. I would never have thought of this but one time when I was at a workshop, they had the grapes in the chicken salad & I couldn't believe how good it was. Since then I've experimented & any berry is really good...

Comment #17

Oh man I am SO making blackberry scones if I find some at the market this weekend *drool*.

I LOVE blackberries!..

Comment #18

I made these with blueberries and my last pkg of blueberry pancake mix. I can't tell you how yummy it was!!!! So, you talked me into getting Raspberry extract last night, lol. These will be my breakfast in a few minutes!..

Comment #19

I made these this morning and boy were they good! I have a huge raspberry patch in my backyard so had really fresh raspberries. I did tweak the recipe a little to try and up the protein to better match a Dukan Diet breakfast entree and this is what I got:.

1/3 c. Instabake (130 cals, 29g carbs, 1g fat, 4 g protein).

1/4 c. skim milk (20 cals, 3.25g carbs, 0g fat, 3g protein).

1 Tbsp FF Soy Flour (26.6 cals, 3.3 g carbs, 0 g fat, 4.7g protein).

1/2 tsp raspberry extract.

1 Tbsp. splenda.

In total this added up to: 176.6 cals, 35.5 g carbs (net carbs are less than 30), 10.7g protein (not including stats added by raspberries)..

YUMMO! Thanks for the recipe!.

I added 3 turkey sausage links and 12 cherries to complete out my breakfast...

Comment #20

Thanks for the recipes and stats too!! Love that!..

Comment #21
