Good morning! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty low-key, but really nice. Mal and I were lazy bums and ended up watching the entire first season of American Horror Story. (Thanks to all of you who suggested it!) It’s such an intense and mysterious show, we just couldn’t stop watching it— sort of like what happened when we started watching Lost. We watched the first couple of episodes and then got sucked in and watched the first 3 seasons marathon-style in just a couple of weeks.

American Horror Story is definitely one of those shows.
I had a major craving for an egg sandwich this morning, so I had a little fun with almond flour/meal and made an English muffin in the microwave. I’m still surprised how well it turned out, especially considering it only took me a few minutes to make!
Microwavable English Muffin
- 1/4 cup almond flour/meal
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp melted butter
- 1/8 tsp baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- Mix together ingredients in bowl until smooth.
- Coat a separate bowl with non-stick cooking spray and then add the batter. Shape batter into a disk/English muffin shape.
- Microwave for 90 seconds.
- Remove English muffin from bowl and allow to cool.
- Cut English muffin in half.
I wasn’t sure if adding a whole egg to the recipe would make it weird and rubbery, but the melted butter added moisture that kept it soft and chewy—just like a real English muffin. It also toasted really well!
I seriously love this English muffin recipe. It will definitely become a staple in my diet!
