Easy Microwave Paleo English Muffin (Low Carb, Keto)

If I knew how easy it was to make a grain free, paleo English muffin, I would’ve been eating this all the time. But now that I finally realize how simple it is, this recipe is going to be on repeat both on weekdays and weekends because it’s so dang easy to make and takes less than 5 minutes.

Not only is this Paleo English Muffin made with healthy and simple ingredients, all you need is a microwave and a mug for a quick and easy breakfast that you can top with whatever you heart desires. I like to top mine with grass fed butter and spread some of my Paleo Orange Blueberry Jam. It’s seriously so delicious and fluffy!

And best of all, this muffin is keto and Whole30 friendly without any added sugar, so it’s perfect for anyone who is craving bread on a low carb or low sugar diet (like me!). I’m not keto, but I tend to be low carb most of the time because that’s what makes me feel best with even energy throughout the day. I do love a gluten free toast now and then, but I feel like I can eat this English muffin anytime without giving me a sugar crash afterwards.

I think I’m going to need to make an eggs benedict recipe with these paleo English muffins and share with you soon. It’s one of my favorite brunch items and I haven’t been able to enjoy it in a long time without substituting the bread with sweet potatoes or home fries. I’m actually super excited about it so stay tuned, friends!

You can make the fluffiest Paleo English Muffin in less than 5 minutes using the microwave! It's a Whole30 and keto recipe that's so easy and delicious.




  1. In a microwave safe mug, add coconut oil and tilt the mug to spread it around the bottom and the sides.

  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well with a fork, making sure there are no separated bits on the bottom.

  3. Use the back of a spoon to flatten out the top of the batter.

  4. Microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds until set.

  5. Use a knife to loosen up the edges and flip the ramekin or mug to remove the English muffin. 

  6. Cool for 5-10 minutes, then slice the English muffin in half.

  7. If you'd like, toast the muffin halves before serving with your favorite toppings and condiments! I like mine with some grass fed butter and some Paleo Orange Blueberry Jam

Recipe Notes

Don't have a microwave? You can also bake it in a oven safe ramekin for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Paleo Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

These Paleo Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins are so deliciously tart and they are a great on-the-go breakfast on busy mornings! Perfect with a cup of coffee.

My mood has been on an all time high recently now that the weather is finally warming up, the days are crazy long,  and it really feels like Spring. And along with that, I’m looking forward to all the lighter and more colorful dishes, along with some grill recipes and tart baked goods to celebrate this new season.

And when I say tart baked goods, I mean all things lemon and citrus based. I just love the sour and sweet combo and I find it so refreshing and delicious, which is why I was so excited to make these Paleo Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins. These are grain free and nut free, made with cassava flour, and they are so lemony and Spring-y. I’ve been enjoying one in the morning with a hot mug of coffee to wash it all down and it’s been just the thing I need to brighten up my breakfast dish.

While the muffins themselves are fluffy and delicious on their own, I highly recommend you make the coconut lemon glaze to drizzle on top of them. It adds an extra lemony flavor to make this recipe shine even more, and adds a bit more moisture which is always good news when it comes to muffins.

Also, don’t forget the poppy seeds. They add a nutty and slightly fruity flavor, which complements so well with the lemons and makes the muffins extra tasty and special!

Paleo Apple Cinnamon Bread

This delicious grain free and Paleo Apple Cinnamon Bread is so comforting and delicious with a hot mug of coffee, and you’ll love the crunchy nut topping!

What is it about a warm buttered toast and a cup of coffee on a chilly morning that just gives ALL THE FEELZ? That’s what I’ve been doing for the past several days ever since making this delicious Paleo Apple Cinnamon Bread and it’s what’s been getting me out of bed when it’s usually too cold to.

This bread is just so yummy and I love that the apple flavor really shines through without it being overly sweet. It’s sweetened mostly with applesauce making it a healthy treat, unlike other similar breads I’ve tried which is overpowered by high amounts of sugar and doesn’t even taste like real apples at the end of it.

The applesauce not only gives the bread flavor, it also creates a delicious moistness (sorry if you hate that word) so it won’t dry out even if you decide to toast the slices like I’ve been doing. And the crunchy nut topping with that soft fluffy bread is just the most delectable texture combo. Best of all, the prep time is less than 5 minutes, so most of the work to make this recipe is done by the oven. It’s definitely my kind of recipe!
