• Microwavable English Muffin

    November 26, 2012

    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.

    One more episode?

    One more episode?

    American Horror Story is definitely one of those shows.

    Breakfast

    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

    Ingredients:

    • 1/4 cup almond flour/meal
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tbsp melted butter
    • 1/8 tsp baking powder
    • Pinch of salt

    Directions:

    1. Mix together ingredients in bowl until smooth.
    2. Coat a separate bowl with non-stick cooking spray and then add the batter. Shape batter into a disk/English muffin shape.
    3. Microwave for 90 seconds.
    4. Remove English muffin from bowl and allow to cool.
    5. 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!

    I LOVE this little quickie. I make the plain one frequently for egg muffin sandwiches. Other times I add 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and about a TB of raisins and just serve it buttered – YUM!!!
    Wonder if there is a way to make “batches” of these muffins in the oven instead of individuals in the microwave.? I now have a set of English Muffin rings since I just wasted a lot of products, time and money on a recipe that was not even low-carb* in hopes of having more to use since Hubby is a big eater. They were a total disaster. So bad I had to throw them out:( Really hoped they would be good cuz I love the yeasty smell and taste of things made with it but they were NOT.

    THIS IS AMAZING! I rarely comment on blogs, but I had to tell you how good this was. My husband (who is pretty picky when it comes to gluten free stuff) LOVED it and wants me to make it every day haha Thank you for this gem!
