You know a recipe is good when you plan out several meals to have during the week, and instead you just keep making the same simple food over and over. That’s what happened here – I made this paleo, low carb English muffin for breakfast every day this week. It was that addicting, seriously.
Every. Single. Day.
Yes, I’m totally obsessed with this new microwave toasted paleo English muffin. It’s the perfect go-to breakfast when you’re in a rush. (But if you’re looking for something sweet, you could try my 2-minute cinnamon swirl mug muffin instead.)
My favorite aspect of this low carb English muffin is the texture – soft and buttery inside, crusty on the outside. It truly has that elusive crumbly biscuit texture, yet is sturdy enough to place in the toaster and apply your favorite spread without falling apart. It also has those lovely little air pockets that are awesome about English muffins. Top it with a pat of grass-fed butter, or any spread or topping you like, and you’ve got the perfect breakfast or snack.
One word of caution – I wouldn’t recommend making this low carb English muffin without toasting, as it will be too fragile. On the other hand, after the toaster it comes out perfectly crispy.
If you prefer more slices, you can also make it in a mug instead of a ramekin. Just pop those into the toaster in batches. This second option is good for trying it with multiple spreads or toppings, because sometimes you just can’t decide, right?
(Update: Alternatively, if you want perfectly sized slices for a sandwich, try making it in one of these Pyrex rectangular containers, then just cut it in half.)
Did I mention that this low carb English muffin is ready in just a couple of minutes? Yes! For mornings when you’re tired, don’t feel like cooking, or are short on time, it’s the perfect solution.
By the way, this low carb English muffin only requires six simple ingredients! How awesome is that? You might even have these in your pantry and fridge right now – they’re pretty common for anyone that cooks gluten-free even occasionally. That means you can make this paleo English muffin on the spur of the moment.
So, let’s recap. Easy? Check. Fast? Check. Delicious? Check. Low carb and paleo? Check. That’s my kind of recipe.
