Gluten-Free 5 Minute English Muffin

This gluten-free english muffin is too good, I have to share. I don’t have to follow a gluten-free diet, but I often choose to. I feel better for it when I do. I used to bake a loaf of bread just about every day when I had four teenagers still living at home. After several years of (albeit usually whole spelt) bread everyday, I knew enough was enough and I had to find a healthier balance.

I found a recipe similar to this one several months ago, and have modified it quite a bit to yummy, gluten-free, breakfast bliss.


Gluten & Dairy Free 5 Minute English Muffin

Gluten & Dairy Free 5 Minute English Muffin



  1. Spray or rub oil into round, microwave-safe, cereal-type bowl.
  2. Add all dry ingredients and whisk together well.
  3. Add remaining, liquid, ingredients and whisk well.
  4. Cook in microwave on regular setting for 4 minutes.
  5. The bowl will be hot, so use heat protection to remove from microwave.
  6. Slice in half, just like an English muffin.
  7. Pop both halves in the toaster until golden brown, or however you like it.
  8. Slather on your favorite (healthy of course!) toppings! (coconut oil, almond butter...)

This recipe is, coincidentally, also dairy-free and nut-free, which may be helpful to know if you are trying to avoid either of those ingredients. 😉

I linked some of the harder to find ingredients above, and the rest are either usually easy to find and/or more affordable at my local Walmart.

Switching to healthier ingredients for recipes isn’t really that complicated. It helps to get a base supply so things are handy when you get the urge to get creative in the kitchen. While some of these ingredients may seem a bit pricey at first, I don’t use much at a time, so a little goes a long way.

Incidentally, the Protein Powder in this recipe is my favorite for after workouts too. I’ll do another recipe post soon with the scoop on how I quickly mix that up. Hint: it’s chocolatey!

Another helpful hint for this recipe is to purchase the small, individual serving size, unsweetened applesauce. I found that as I’m just using 2 Tablespoons at a time, a full jar would go bad before I could use it all. Bummer. I was happy to find these little single serve size at the grocery store. After opening, I store the extra in the smallest sized (4 oz.) glass Ball jar. Easy Peasy!
