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.
- 1Tbs Peanut Flour
- 1 tsp Green Banana Flour
- 1 tsp Protein Powder
- 1 tsp Teff Flour
- 1/2 tsp Aluminum Free Baking Powder
- 1 heaping tsp Confectioners Swerve
- a couple dashes Saigon Cinnamon
- a dash Baking Spice (optional)
- a pinch Real Salt (or Himalayan)
- Spray or regular Avocado Oil (enough to coat inside of bowl)
- 2 Tbs Unsweetened Apple Sauce
- 1 large egg
- Spray or rub oil into round, microwave-safe, cereal-type bowl.
- Add all dry ingredients and whisk together well.
- Add remaining, liquid, ingredients and whisk well.
- Cook in microwave on regular setting for 4 minutes.
- The bowl will be hot, so use heat protection to remove from microwave.
- Slice in half, just like an English muffin.
- Pop both halves in the toaster until golden brown, or however you like it.
- 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!
