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!

Ingredients

Instructions

  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 Dill Pickle Dip

On game days and gatherings, this creamy and addicting dairy free and Paleo Dill Pickle Dip is just the thing all the pickle lovers will devour!

Paleo Dill Pickle Dip

Can’t believe the Super Bowl is less than a week away and I haven’t shared any game day recipes yet! Don’t worry though. I’m coming in hot with a fabulous dip recipe that I think you’ll love. This Paleo Dill Pickle Dip is dairy free but yet, still so creamy and addicting. And best of all, it is so easy to make. You just throw everything in the blender until it comes together.

A high speed blender works best with this recipe for that extra creamy texture, but if you don’t have one, just blend for several minutes until the grittiness of the almond flour goes away. I don’t have a fancy blender so that’s what I did. I kept blending for about 5 minutes while tasting it every minute, and the texture smoothed out perfectly by the end of it. I couldn’t stop eating it with some potato chips and fresh vegetables!

Also… did you notice that I added a nutrition info section to my newer recipes? You can find them below the instructions. I’ve had several requests from the readers for it and I debated long and hard whether I should add it or not, because I’m all about listening to the body and intuitive eating, instead of counting macros, calories, etc.

However, if you feel that it’ll help you one way or another, I’m happy to provide that information. Just be mindful that our body is not a math equation. Focus on quality over quantity, and really try to feel what your body is needing instead having to fit into a certain number goal. I plan to go back to my older posts to add the nutrition information for those as well, so let me know if there are any specific recipes that you want to see that data for more than others, and I’ll work on those first.

Anyway, hope you enjoy this quick and easy Paleo Dill Pickle Dip for your next gathering. It’s guaranteed to be a popular one, because after all, who doesn’t love pickles? The crunchy pickle and onion bits in the smooth dip just makes it a perfect texture and you won’t be able to stop with just one scoop.
