2 Minute Paleo English Muffins: 2 Ways

These paleo english muffins take only 2 minutes in the microwave and are a great grain free addition to your breakfast.

Much like paleo pancakes, paleo versions of bread or toast can result in horrible morning experiments.

I should know because at least 10 of them have happened in my kitchen over the past few weeks.

If there’s one thing worse than kitchen failures when you’re hungry, it’s kitchen failures before your morning cup (or cups in my case) of coffee.

These paleo english muffins take only 2 minutes in the microwave and are a great grain free addition to your breakfast.

But, my resolve to be able to have some sort of “bread” with my eggs and bacon in the morning won out and these simple two minute paleo english muffins made right in the microwave are what I have to show for it.

They were a labor of love and the result of many trial and error experiments but I think they’re finally perfected.

Well, as perfected as “bread” and “paleo” can be together because let’s be real, it’s sort of like oil and vinegar with those two.

Although, I love these paleo breads:
Paleo chocolate zucchini bread
Paleo maple peach bread
Paleo lemon poppyseed bread
Paleo almond zucchini bread

Ingredients for Paleo English Muffins

The basic ingredients in these 2 minute microwave paleo English muffins, much like all paleo baked goods are:

  • almond or cashew flour/meal (I grind my own cashew meal in my Vitamix or food processor if I can’t find it in the store).
  • coconut flour
  • an egg

The cinnamon raisin version is my favorite but sometimes getting those three extra ingredients (cinnamon, raisins, maple syrup) out is too much work for my non-caffeinated 7am self and I roll with the plain.

And then since it’s plain, I use it as an excuse to slather on extra butter, grass fed of course.

Win, win.

They’re also great with a fried egg on top, some smashed avocado (you can never go wrong with avocado toast!), breakfast sausage, bacon, the list goes on and on really.

Some non-paleo but equally delicious topping options are cream cheese, hummus or jam (like this Chinese 5 spice plum jam or these vanilla fig preserves).

And don’t even think about skipping the toasting part.

It’s clutch for true english muffin-ness. Those crispy, golden brown edges are a must!

Hi Kate- not sure without being there. Are you talking about before cooking it or after? It is slightly dry as a batter but shouldn't have been a "dry mess". Sorry you had trouble with it.
