Bran Pancakes

I love food, and, as a great food lover I have a problem, I love it too much. I love it to the point of obsession, I love it till my body tells me I  have to stop myself from loving it...for some time ...
It never really works... Even on my low carb, high protein diet binges I find ways to make it taste good:)
To all of you Dukan diet lovers, here's a pancake that will make your life that much better when you're on the it (skip the dip if you're on Dukan diet phase 1-2).

Bran Pancakes with salmon and 'Guacamolish' dip;)

Bran pancakes (makes 6)

4 tbsp oat bran
3 tbsp fat free natural yoghurt
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking powder

salt to taste

mix all the ingredients and fry on a non-stick skillet on low heat so they cook all the way through and don't burn.

No dice/no slice guacamolish dip (makes a small bowl, 1 person serving)

1/2 ripe avocado
lemon juice to taste (i prefer lime, but didn't have any at home)
1/4 medium sized onion
1/2 garlic clove
finely chopped cilantro (if you like it)
salt, pepper to taste

Mash avocado with a fork.
Here comes the awesome part about no dice/no slice;) Grab garlic press and cut the onion into chunks that fit into the press easily, press it into the avocado, repeat with garlic. Add salt, pepper and lemon juice. Voila! you're done!

Enjoy your breakfast/ brunch!
